Ashwagandha Extract, 2 oz.
Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha holds a premier place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It is both a rasayana herb, meaning one that aids the quality of life and longevity, as well as an adaptogen, an herb that improves our ability to cope with stress. This herb has a multitude of uses but to understand how research of prized Indian herbs is conducted, it is useful to consider how well an herb protects the patient from damaging changes when exposed to chemical, metallic, or radioactive hazards and how successfully the herb protects against free radicals. Ashwagandha is very high on the list of such valuable herbs, but it is most often used to improve male potency and endurance.

In Siddha Medicine, the leaves are used with ghee to disgorge phlegm lodged in the tongue and tonsils, one of the preparations for serious rejuvenation. The leaf extract is a powerful liver tonic but mild enough for children to take for biliousness associated with intestinal parasites.
