What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha (botanical name Withania Somnifera) is also known as the Indian Ginseng and has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for over 3000 years. The name Ashwagandha derives from two Sanskrit words ‘Ashwa’ meaning Horse and ‘Gandha’ meaning Smell, and is said to have the horse-like
smell in its roots which also denotes the stallion-like strength of this plant. It holds a prominent place among ayurvedic Rasayana herbs and is specially used as a nervine tonic as it promotes the health of
nerves and soothes them.
