Ashwagandha's botanical name, Withania somnifera, provides a bit of a clue to its powers; the species name somnifera means 'sleep-inducing.' Naturopathically speaking this plant is an adaptogen which means it helps our body handle stress better, as well as being known to reduce cortisol levels. If you are finding you are wired before bed and have a racing mind then this is definitely something to try! (Along with a good Magnesium).

Ashwagandha has been treasured for its ability to revitalise and rejuvenate for more than six thousand years; this Indian root strikes a delicate balance between strengthening and fortifying the body while bringing a calm, parasympathetic embodiment.

Ashwagandha is used in Ayurvedic medicine to promote healthy sleep patterns, support reproductive hormones, and foster a healthy stress response in the body.

As a rasayana, ashwagandha is given to children (in milk) to support healthy development and the elderly as it helps to promote ease calms the mind, and supports healthy ageing.

Ashwagandha is known for granting the strength of a horse to those that use ashwagandha. Ashwagandha holds a similar place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia as ginseng does in the Traditional Chinese healing system, however, it has a softer energy. 

Traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to:

  • Maintain / support healthy reproductive hormones
  • Enhance / promote / increase healthy sleep patterns
  • Support healthy stress response in the body

Dose is 1 capsule, if under a lot of stress you could use one in the morning and one at night before bed. So the value in the 120 capsules is very cost effective.
