Indian Ginseng Root Powder




Ashwagandha, one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions, and is most well-known for its restorative benefits. In Sanskrit Ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse,” indicating that the herb imparts the vigor and strength of a stallion, and has traditionally been prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system after an illness. Ashwagandha is frequently referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties, even though botanically, ginseng and Ashwagandha are unrelated.


Health Benefits

1. Relieves Stress

A 2012 study published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine found that ashwagandha is highly beneficial in reducing stress as well as its side effects. People suffering from stress who took ashwagandha had lower levels of cortisol (stress hormones).

Ashwagandha can help both acute and chronic stress. It works as a tonic and helps your body adapt to stress, as well as strengthens the nervous system and the adrenals. Plus, it refreshes the body and mind and improves the quality of sleep.


2. Stimulates Brain Power

According to a study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2010, ashwagandha is effective in the treatment of Alzheimer’s. There are several chemicals in ashwagandha that help improve the production of acetylcholine, the main transmitter of neural signals. This in turn improves the cognitive abilities including thinking, concentration and memory.

It can even stimulate the growth of parts of the neural cells that have already been damaged and thus help reduce the risk of age-related mental illnesses like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

To protect your brain from degeneration, start taking an ashwagandha supplement but only after consulting your doctor.


3. Protects Against Cancer

Numerous studies have shown positive signs that ashwagandha can help prevent or stop the growth of cancer. It is high in antioxidants and cancer-killing properties.


Its components can be beneficial in preventing the growth of many types of cancer cells like breast, colon, leukemia, lung, melanoma, prostate and sarcoma.

Plus, it can enhance the effects of chemotherapy and radiation against cancer cells as well as protect healthy cells against damage from conventional cancer therapies.


4. Improves Immunity


Another important health benefit of ashwagandha is that it helps boost the immune system. Being high in antioxidants, it helps increase white blood cell production and improve the functioning of the immune system.

This ensures better overall health and reduces the chances of getting sick more frequently. Plus, ashwagandha can give you more energy when you feel weak and aid recovery after illness.

Drinking 1 cup of ashwagandha tea regularly will keep your immune system strong.

Note: Ashwagandha tea is not recommended for those who have high blood pressure.


5. Fights Depression

Ashwagandha has stress-relieving and antidepressant properties that are more effective than powerful drugs used to treat depression and anxiety.

A 2000 study by researchers at the Institute of Medical Sciences at Banaras Hindu University in India found that ashwagandha stabilized moods in patients with behavioral disturbances.

Plus, ashwagandha does not induce drowsiness, which is a side effect of many prescription medicines.

It should be taken orally under the guidance of a doctor to control depression and anxiety.


6. Works as a Natural Aphrodisiac

Ashwagandha works as a powerful aphrodisiac. In fact, a 2013 pilot study evaluating the spermatogenic activity of Ashwagandha confirmed that this herb can increase sperm count, semen volume and sperm motility.

Mix ½ teaspoon of ashwagandha powder in a glass of warm milk and drink it twice daily.

Alternatively, take 300 to 500 mg capsules, 2 times a day for about a month.
