Production: Belonging to the tomato family, Ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers, bearing small red fruits. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States.
Qualities: Ashwagandha (aka “Indian Ginseng”) is one of the most well-known and widely used Ayurvedic herbs as it contains many useful medicinal chemicals, including withanolides (steroidal lactones), alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, amino acids, and a variety of sugars. While the leaves and fruit have valuable therapeutic properties, the root of the Ashwagandha plant is the part most commonly used in Western herbal remedies.
The list of health promoting qualities attributed to Ashwagandha root range from protecting the terrain, anti-inflammatory benefits, helping with concentration, and combating the effects of stress, all the way to improving sleep and reducing anxiety and depression. Overall, Ashwagandha is most well-known for its restorative and vitality-promoting benefits, supporting an energetic and rejuvenating sense of wellbeing. Ashwaganda is an excellent adaptogen to assist the adrenal glands and the thyroid.
Brew cut and sifted Ashwagandha root as a tea: bring 1 tsp per cup of water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steep at least 5 minutes (the longer, the stronger). Drink 1 to 2 cups per day, or as recommended by your health care practitioner.
