Plant Description: The Ashwaganda plant is an evergreen perennial shrub which is usually found in the arid parts of India and has been found as far west as Israel. It sometimes grows as tall as seven feet and looks similar to a large potato plant. Although different parts of the plant have been used for medicinal purposes, the root is the primary source. The Latin name for the plant literally means “sweat of a horse” because the root smells like a damp horse.

Medicinal Properties & Uses: Ashwaganda is considered to be astringent, sedative, aphrodisiac, antibiotic, antiviral and diuretic. It is often used internally for indigestion, heart disease, arthritis, back pain, and fevers. Ashwaganda has also been effective in relieving insomnia, convalescence, nervous exhaustion, and impotence. In the cases of mental health, Ashwaganda helps to prevent mental exhaustion in those who extend their energies more than they replenish, and also aids in recovery for those who have already exhausted themselves.
