What is Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha, also called Withania somnifera, is an evergreen plant that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa.
It plays a predominant role in the Ayurvedic Indian system of medicine (where it is consumed in a fine powder mixed with water or honey)
What are the benefits of Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha is considered to be a natural adaptogen (a plant with the property of relaxing you and boosting your energies). Ashwagandha might have a calming effect on the mind and help your resilience to sport and stress, leading to a more relaxed lifestyle.*
