One of the most important herbs in the Ayurvedic medicinal system, Ashwagandha has been used to heal the human body and mind for hundreds of years. 


'Ashwagandha' literally translates into 'horse-like-aroma', but it is actually a reference to the herb's spectacular building and strengthening properties. 

Also called the "Indian Ginseng", this is one powerful herb that revitalizes and rejuvenates your body.


Ashwagandha root powder benefits have been used for centuries for its dual capacity to energize as well as relax


It has a calming effect on anxiety symptoms and has been classified as an 'adaptogen' which means it reduces cortisol levels in the human body, thereby relieving stress.   

There are two ways of making 

Ashwagandha powder: 

- Drying and crushing the roots of the plant

- Using the roots as well as the leaves


The method used can make a huge difference in the performance of the product. Leaf extracts usually contain high levels of cytotoxins (toxic to living cells) and reduce Ashwagandha powder benefits.
