Ashwagandha is a plant of the Solanaceae family, native to India. It is also found in the Far East and in Mediterranean countries.
It has been used since antiquity in Ayurvedic medicine for its so-called adaptogenic properties.
Its name comes from Sanskrit, which means "horse smell", because this plant gives off a strong smell.
Its roots have properties similar to those of Chinese ginseng, which is why in Europe it is often called "Indian ginseng", although unlike ginseng, ashwagandha is not a stimulant.
Ashwagandha normalizes the body's functions by bringing calm and serenity (Bhattacharya, 2003).
