Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also known as Indian Ginseng and Winter Cherry, is an herbal rejuvenative tonic and adaptogen that’s been prized for over 6,000 years in Ayurveda (the ancient Hindu system of medicine), and continues to be used as a household remedy in India. Ashwagandha is revered for various actions, including to revitalize, relieve stress, improve endurance and stamina, promote longevity, improve immunity, enhance memory and cognition, reduce inflammation and support sexual function. It’s no wonder Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word meaning "the scripture for longevity".
A small, woody shrub in the nightshade family, Ashwagandha is most widely cultivated in central and northwestern India.
