Ashwagandha Benefits and Uses

The herb has been used for more than 2500 years to restore overall health and increase longevity.

The Indian or Hindu common name ashwagandha (Sanskrit), translates roughly to “the smell and strength of a horse,” referring to the plant’s alleged ability to enhance sexual vigor.

In today’s herbal medicine the herb is categorized as an adaptogen, and it used to treat fatigue, stress, anxiety and nervous exhaustion and to enhance memory.

The herb also has a reputation as an aphrodisiac both for men and women and is believed to protect against infertility in men.

The herb has mild sedative properties and is thought to promote restful sleep. This use is reflected in the scientific species name somnifera (= soporific).
