What is Ashwagandha?In Sanskrit, Ashwagandha means "the smell of a horse", indicating the strength of a stallion. It was traditionally used to help people support a healthy immune system . Ashwagandha is usually referred to as winter cherry or Indian ginseng because of its energizing properties . Somnifera (meaning "sleep-inducing" in Latin) has been recommended for a sound night's sleep for centuries. The Western world has started showing an interest in recent years as extracts of the Ashwagandha plant possess multiple therapeutic properties, especially rejuvenating properties. *
