The word asgandh in Hindu roughly translates to “sweat of the horse.” This name is fitting since the root of Ashwagandha provides strength and stamina like a stallion.
Ashwagandha belongs to the nightshade family, just like tomatoes, and its Latin name is Withania somnifera.
In India, it has been traditionally used to treat malnourishment in children. Ashwagandha is considered to be an adaptogenic tonic that’s safe for daily consumption.
It has been proven to support the thyroid and adrenal glands without causing overstimulation of the nervous system. This adaptogenic tonic is effective in relieving anxiety, fatigue, and cloudy thinking.
