Ashwagandha is also know as withania somnifera, or Indian ginseng. In Sanskrit Ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse,” suggesting that the herb imparts the vigor and strength of a stallion. It is widely used in Ayurveda.
Ashwagandha belongs to the same family as the tomato, and is a shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It has red fruit about the size of a chick pea. It is often called Indian ginseng because, like ginseng, ashwagandha is a non-specific tonic and adaptogen. Ashwagandha root rejuvenates without being over stimulating.
