Withania (24 products)

Withania (Withania somnifera), commonly known as Ashwagandha (winter cherry), is an important medicinal plant that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 3,000 years for a wide variety of conditions. It is most well-known for its restorative and rejuvenating benefits and often referred to as Indian ginseng. Traditionally, ashwagandha has been prescribed as a nerve tonic and adaptogen. Ashwaganda root extract has many bioactive compounds which exert antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory actions within the body. Ashwagandha supplements are used in the prevention and treatment of many diseases, such as arthritis, impotence, amnesia, anxiety, cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. For thousands of years Ashwaganda has been used in India for conditions such as failure to thrive in children, weakness and debility in old age, rheumatism, constipation, insomnia, nervous conditions, stress, joint inflammation. It is also known to help people strengthen their immune system after illness, chemotherapy, or surgery. It is a highly effective, evidence-based remedy for anxiety and stress.

  

Ashwaganda is available as a withania complex often combined with anti-stress or adaptogenic herbs, ashwaganda powder, ashwaganda tablets, ashwaganda capsules and as a liquid ashwaganda extract.
