Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Winter Cherry, is an adaptogenic herb that supports the body's ability to maintain physical effort and adapt to various types of stress. Perhaps the most famous rejuvenative botanical in Ayurveda, ashwagandha is one of a rare group of botanicals and mushrooms possessing unique properties that helps support the body's ability to resist and recover from stress, thereby providing an enhanced feeling of overall well-being. Ashwagandha root is nutrient-dense; it contains prebiotic fructooligosaccharides, vitamin A, essential amino acids, calcium, and iron. Ashwagandha works to help the body manage symptoms of stress and promote rest, relaxation, and mental clarity. These effects are believed to be a result of its complex blend of active constituents, including withanine, somniferine, tropine, and withanolides.
