Ashwagandha root (Withania somnifera) is sometimes called “Indian ginseng” as it has many similar health properties. It is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Indian system of medicine. The root of the plant can be used to make supplements, teas, and extracts, which are believed to have a variety of health benefits.

Ashwagandha root has adaptogenic properties, which means it can help the body adapt to stress. As such, Ashwagandha root is traditionally used to help with anxiety, depression, fatigue, and other conditions related to stress.

Ashwagandha root has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and is also commonly used to improve cognitive function, help lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels and boost fertility and testosterone in men. It is often seen used to improve endurance, and as a general tonic to improve overall health and well-being.

The powder form is easier to use in smoothies, energy drinks, supplements, and as a daily tonic.
