Ashwagandha is one of the most famous food supplements of Ayurveda. Ashwagandha means “the odour of a horse”, indicating that the herb imparts the vital power and strength of a horse.
Its significance in Ayurveda is comparable to that of the ginseng in traditional Chinese medicine. Ashwagandha root reduces Vata and Kapha doshas.
Ashwagandha herbalised to become a ghrita using ghee, helps enhance the beneficial effect of the Ashwagandha.
