Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a staple herb used in Ayurveda, also known as Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry.
Ashwagandha has had a massive rise in popularity in the last couple of years.
Ashwagandha has adaptogenic properties* and is credited with supporting mental and physical capacities in cases of fatigue.
It is currently a very hot topic of research with more and more research being published every year.
Ashwagandha is organically grown in India and is only extracted from the Ashwagandha root, never the leaves. The reason for this is that the root is the primary part of the plant used in Ayurveda.
