Ashwagandha, also known as Winter Cherry, is one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda. One of the most common uses of Ashwagandha is for stress and pain. When taken, it helps nurtures the nerves in the body, helping to alleviate pain. It also prepares the body and makes it stronger in order to handle physical and mental stress. Good sleep may be hard to get when the body is under stress, but when one starts taking Ashwagandha, the body and mind will be relaxed, and they will get very sound sleep. Ashwagandha is a rasayan that fights against early ageing, and helps to rejuvenate the body to feel youthful.
