Ashwagandha is a medicinal herb that may offer several health benefits such as improved blood sugar, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety, as well as a boost in muscle strength and fertility. Ashwagandha contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, reduce swelling, lower blood pressure and alter the immune system. Since ashwagandha is traditionally used as an adaptogen, it is used for many conditions related to stress. It is particularly effective during menopause due to its adaptogenic properties. Ayurvedic practitioners value it highly as an excellent tonic that can be used safely for the same conditions as Ginseng and to strengthen the entire system. It is rich in iron and very useful for anaemia.

Brewing Details:

Add 1-2 roots to a cup of boiling water in a saucepan. Let the water boil for 10-15 minutes. Strain in a cup and squeeze some lemon juice and a touch of honey as per taste. Alternatively, add a root to your herbal tea routine.
