About Ashwagandha Root Cut Organic
Ashwagandha has been used in India since ancient times as a rejuvenator and immunity booster. The first record of its use dates back to 6000 BC where it was used to treat arthritis, anxiety, among other uses. Today, it is used in Ayurvedic healing and there is some evidence to support the use of ashwagandha for stress and anxiety, arthritis, heart health, Alzheimer’s and cancer. Among the ayurvedic Rasayana herbs, Ashwagandha holds the most prominent place. Most of the Rasayana herbs are adaptogen / anti-stress agents.
The root of Ashwagandha is regarded as tonic, aphrodisiac, narcotic, diuretic, anthelmintic, astringent, thermogenic and stimulant. The root smells like horse (“ashwa”), that is why it is called Ashwagandha (on consuming it gives the power of a horse). Ashwagandha is commonly available as a churna, a fine sieved powder that can be mixed with water, ghee (clarified butter) or honey. It enhances the function of the brain and nervous system and improves the memory. It improves the function of the reproductive system promoting a healthy sexual and reproductive balance. Being a powerful adaptogen, it enhances the body’s resilience to stress. Ashwagandha improves the body’s defense against disease by improving the cell-mediated immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals.
