ASHWAGHANDA- Also known as “Indian ginseng”, ASHWAGHANDA (Withania somnifera) has been used by Asian Indian cultures for more than 2,500 years. It’s called Indian ginseng because it’s used in ayurvedic medicine in the same fashion ginseng’s used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This herb is also considered an adaptogen because it has the ability to aid the body in resisting different types of stress, being used primarily to relieve fatigue and nervous tension, as well as aiding cognitive function, particularly memory. ASHWAGHANDA is also believed to have aphrodisiac properties and to promote restful sleep. Similar to Rhodiola, ASHWAGHANDA’s adaptogenic properties seem to be attributable to its ability to regulate hormone production during stressful situations.
