|ASHWAGANDHA - Withania somnifera
Traditional use: superior general tonic & rejuvenative, hormone balancer, energy tonic, calming & clarifying
An Ayurvedic herb used for regeneration, rejuvenation, and as a general tonic. It is used for all types of weakness or debility, whether from an illness, malnutrition, old age, overwork, insomnia, or any other case in which the body and its tissues are weak. It is considered calming and clarifying to the mind, and use to promote deep sleep without overly sedating effects. Recently, Ashwagandha was shown to slow the circulation of adrenaline in the bloodstream, making it useful for all types of anxiety, panic, and hypertension.
Ashwagandha also has an affinity for the reproductive systems of both men and women, and is used in all cases of disease or malfunction of the sexual organs, as well as to improve and tone those systems in already healthy people. It is also used to balance the hormonal system, and as an aphrodisiac.
Also available as a Spagyric Spiritualized Essence for Energetic Balance, with more stimulating and mental effects.
