Ashwagandha also known as Indian ginseng, is indicated in Ayurveda as a daily rasayana, or anti-aging aid*. It is one of the most highly regarded and widely used Ayurvedic herbs and is believed to increase energy and overall health and longevity. It acts as an adaptogen and immune promoter, nourishing and strengthening the inner reserve of the human body*. Ashwagandha literally means 'to impart the strength of a horse.' It supports the activity of lymphocytes and macrophages and may aid in thyroid function*. The key constituents of Ashwagandha, withanoloids, play an important role in its ability to promote physical and mental health, such as for occasional stress, cognitive and brain function, immune system support*, and healthy metabolism*. Traditionally, it is well recognized for its potentially positive impact on joint and tissue health. It has many uses, including promoting healthy sexual function*. Our Ashwagandha is unique for a number of reasons, not the least of which is our patented extraction method. Ashwagandha can be used on a long-term daily basis without risk of side effects.
