ASHWAGANDHA ROOT C/S
Botanic Name: Withania Somnifera
Ashwagandha is a plant in Solanacea or nightshade family. It grows as a shrub, reaching a height of 170cm. As with the tomato, which also belongs to this family, Ashwagandha bears yellow flower and red fruit, though its fruit is berry-like in size and shape. It grows in India, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan. Ashwagandha is widely used in Ayurveda, an Indian system of holistic medicine. The root is primarily recognized for its adaptogenic properties. An adaptogen is a physiological agent with the ability to naturally increase the body's resistance to emotional and physical stresses. Ayurvedic practitioners traditionally use Ashwagandha to promote gentle relaxation and emotional balance.
