Ashwagandha, 120 Caps

We are thrilled to share that our Ashwagandha now features the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) label!* To meet organic certification guidelines and give our customers the assurance of our herbal quality, we made changes to the Ashwagandha manufacturing process.
AYUSH™ ASHWAGANDHA, also known as Indian Ginseng, is indicated in Ayurveda as a daily rasayana, or anti-aging supplement.* It is one of the most highly regarded and widely-used Ayurvedic herbs, and is believed to promote energy as well as overall health and longevity.* It acts as an adaptogen by helping to maintain levels of immune function that are already within the normal range and nourishing and strengthening the inner reserve of the human body*. In Sanskrit, ashwagandha literally means “to impart the strength of a horse.” It supports the activity of the immune system, brain health and thyroid function.
The key constituents of ashwagandha are called withanaloids and they play an important role in the herb’s ability to promote physical and mental health. Ashwagandha is most effective during occasional stress, when you need a boost in cognitive function, immune system enhancement, and to maintain lipid and glucose metabolism already within the normal range. Traditionally, it is well recognized for its potentially positive impact on joint and tissue health.* It has a wide variety of uses, including promoting sexual health.
Our Ayush™ ashwagandha is unique for a number of reasons. One of the most important is our proprietary extraction method which is specially designed to preserve the active essences of this powerful herb. Ashwagandha can be used on a long-term daily basis without risk of side effects and is a dosha balancer.
A member of the Solanaceae family, Withania somnifera has been used for over 4,000 years in India. More commonly known as “Indian ginseng” due to its stimulating effects, it has been used to also calm the mind, relieve weakness and nervous exhaustion, build sexual energy and promote healthy sleep. It has been widely used in immune support, high stress, joint support, thyroid support, cognitive support, hormonal support, and mood stabilization. Overall, Ashwagandha has been revered for its tonifying and longevity promoting effects.
