Ashwagandha Powder, the magical herb, is considered to be nature’s gift to mankind. It is a small shrub with yellow flowers and a red fruit, native to india, North Africa, and the Middle East. The extract is typically taken from the berries or roots of the plant. It is also referred to as Withania Somnifera (Latin name), Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry. And with an abundance of antioxidants, iron and amino acids, it’s no surprise that Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful herbs in ayurverdic healing. It is classified as a rasayana i.e. rejuvenation in Ayurveda and expected to promote physical and mental health, restore the body and increase longevity. It has been glorified over time for its dual capacity to energize and calm at the same time.
Due to the “Rasayana” property, Ayurvedic herbs including Ashwagandha work as skin rejuvenators that can be taken internally as well as via products that contain them. Ayurvedic Rasayanas are a great way to battle the harmful effects of pollution on our skin and entire body. They are natural antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators, which help the skin cells to revive and revitalize. Herbs like Ashwagandha, turmeric, saffron and Ketki control collagen depletion and smoothen fine lines to maintain the plumpness of skin and are excellent anti-oxidants that combat free radicals in the environment.
How does Ashwagandha Powder help your body?
With today’s fast-paced life and increased stress, it is essential to incorporate herbs that lend to mental calmness, a restful sleep, and help rejuvenate your body from within. Ashwagandha is regarded as an important herb in Ayurveda which belongs to the group “Balya” that is strengthening and “Bhruhaniya” that is nourishing. It is an energy stimulating power herb that enhances immunity and stamina. Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce stress.
Due to its active ingredient called Withanolides, Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress, as a natural tonic, and for improving thinking ability. As Ashwagandha has potent anti-inflammatory properties it is very useful in painful conditions such as arthritis. As the herb is rich in iron it also contributes to red blood cell count. It is recommended to take a cup of hot tea infused with Ashwagandha before bed, to induce a restful sleep.
How does Ashwagandha help the hair?
Ashwagandha is believed to be equally beneficial for hair health. This antioxidant rich herb has stimulating properties; it helps in improving the blood circulation, rejuvenating the scalp and reducing dandruff, thereby strengthening the hair follicles and encouraging healthy hair growth.
