Ashwagandha Root Extract
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb commonly used Ayurvedic medicine. We grow these Ashwagandha plants as annuals here in Maine. They still give a nice root system for our fall harvest from our MOFGA certified organic gardens.
An adaptogen is an herb that helps our bodies and selves manage stress, whether physical, emotional or environmental. Also know as tonics, though not all tonics are adaptogens, this small class of herbs supports over all health with no, or very few, adverse side effects. Generally they are safe for most people to take, though it is always a good idea to consult a qualified practitioner before adding any herb to your daily routine.
Ashwagandha has a long history of use and is known to increase stamina, support a healthy immune system and cardiovascular health, help manage stress and help us feel calmer. Ashwagandha is a powerful antioxidant, a gentle aphrodisiac and uplifts our mood.
Ashwagandha is contraindicated during pregnancy.
