If you’re even remotely close to natural remedies and Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is probably one of the first things you’d have heard about. Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, holds a significant place in Ayurveda as a revered herb. This small shrub, belonging to the Solanaceae family, is commonly referred to as Indian Ginseng or Indian winter cherry.


Renowned for its Rasayana (tonic) properties, Ashwagandha stimulates a youthful physical and mental state of health and happiness. Widely cited in various traditional textbooks of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, and Chinese medicine, Ashwagandha is a potent adaptogen.

It helps normalize bodily functions by acting on the HPA axis and the neuroendocrine system. Ancient Ayurvedic scriptures named this plant Ashwagandha, meaning 'odour of the horse.'


Characterized by three different tastes

  • Tikta (bitter)
  • Katu (pungent)
  • Madhura (sweet),

Ashwagandha possesses Laghu (light) and Snigdha (oily) qualities. It has Ushna Virya (hot potency) and Madhura Vipaka (sweet metabolic property), aggravating Pitta doshas while pacifying Vata and Kapha doshas.

Ashwagandha contains active ingredients beneficial for various bodily functions. Its roots are rich in essential volatile oils, amino acids, and alkaloids, while the fruits and leaves abound in tannins and flavonoids, combating free radical damage and reducing oxidative stress.
