Ashwagandha Extract

The mighty “Indian” Ginseng

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), one of the most powerful herbs in the Ayurvedic (traditional Hindu) medicine system, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions.

The herb is native to the dry regions of India, Northern Africa and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States.

Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress and may help prevent stress-related disorders and depletion of vitamin C and cortisol. It has an anxiolytic effect that helps improve the energy within the body as it rejuvenates and energizes the nervous systems. Additionally, it has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects.
