Aswagandha has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years as a rasayana (rejuvenative) and an adaptogenic herb, meaning that it is used to help the body resist physiological and psychological stress. It has been revered over time for its dual capacity to energize and calm at the same time.
Aswagandha improves vitality and immunity of the body. It calms mental processes and fosters healthy sleep pattern. The root powder helps in nervous weakness and acts as a nervine tonic. It reduces body pain, tiredness and joint pains especially during delivery in women. In both men and women, Aswagandha functions as an aphrodisiac, by lifting energy levels and improving sexual performance.
Its potent antioxidant properties help protect the skin against free radical damage and slow down the ageing process by firming up the skin for a more youthful look. Aswagandha is believed to help improve scalp circulation and strengthen the hair, as well as help to get rid of dandruff. It also appears to stimulate the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the colour of hair. So, it may actually reverse greying of hair.
