The root of Ashwagandha, also known as Winter Cherry has been in use for over 4000 years in India and is highly esteemed as an adaptogen and a rejuvenating herb, which is capable of imparting long life, youthful vigour and intellectual powers. Used by both men and women, it acts to calm the mind and promote sound, restful sleep. As an adaptogen it promotes the body�s ability to maintain homeostasis and resist stress. It prevents or minimises imbalance that may lead to disease, whether from poor diet, lack of sleep, mental or physical strain, or chemical toxins in the environment. It is especially beneficial in stress related disorders such as hypertension, general debility, etc. As a rejuvenative it helps maintain proper nourishment of the tissues, particularly muscle and bone, while supporting the proper function of the adrenals and reproductive system.
Ashwagandha enjoys the reputation in the West as an aphrodisiac, a use supported by a recent study in which more than 70% of men reported increased libido and sexual function after taking the herb. It is therefore an excellent remedy for infertility and helps in increasing the sense of well-being and improves sexual performance and is also useful in spermatorrhoea. It is recommended for erectile dysfunction and seminal debility. In fact, in Sanskrit the name means �like a horse�. It is increasingly known as �Indian Ginseng� as its actions and uses are in many ways similar to those of Chinese Ginseng. It is also useful in senile debility and loss of muscular energy. Restores normal vitality after a long-term illness or stress.
