Ashwagandha

Organically grown and harvested by Curate Essentials in Fayetteville, NC

Botanical Name: Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha has been used in India’s Ayurvedic, Siddha, and Unani-Tibb systems of medicine for thousands of years, mainly as an adaptogen (helps to adapt to stressful situations), as well as to increase libido in both men and women, stimulate growth in children, and to calm the nerves. The plant has also been used for the treatment of debility, emaciation, impotence, and premature ageing. Research has shown that the plant possesses antitumor and adaptogenic actions similar to those found in Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng-Araliaceae). For this reason, Ashwagandha is also known in commerce as “Indian ginseng”, although the two species are botanically unrelated
