In Ayurveda, Ashwagandha Root is highly valued as an adaptogenic tonic. Sometimes written as Ashwaganda, this well-loved root can be decocted, integrated into herbal tea blends, and tinctured.
In Ayurveda it is a helpful sleep aid and used to balance various conditions that arise from ‘vata dosha’ imbalances. It is believed to encourage youth and vitality. It is considered a grounding and nourishing herb and supportive to female well-being. Bitter, sweet, astringent in flavor and energetically warming (mildly).
Ashwagandha is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine as an adaptogen and a nervine to help cope with stress and supports overall cognitive health.
