What is ashwagandha and how can it help your health? This herb, long used in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine, sometimes goes by the names of Indian ginseng or winter cherry, and it grows on a short shrub in the drier areas of the subcontinent.
It is classified by many herbalists as an “adaptogen,” which means it has superior powers to help us fight physical and emotional stress, such as anxiety or environmental toxins. Ashwagandha is considered by holistic practitioners to be an excellent plant to take if you have sluggish adrenal glands, or adrenal fatigue, as a result of chronic stress.
The organic ashwagandha capsules shown above are also recommended by the manufacturer as a general means to rejuvenate the body.
Women who are pregnant should never take an herbal preparation unless directed to do so by a doctor or midwife.Buy Now
