What is Ashwagangha ?
Ashwagandha originated in India and is classed as an adaptogen and is very popular in Ayurvedic Medicine. It has been in use for thousands of years and is sometimes referred to as Indian Ginseng. It is rich in iron, antioxidants, tannins, glucose, alkaloids, fatty acids and many other nutrients. The root is the most nutrient dense part of the plant.
In Ayurvedic history it has been used to promote strength and vitality and bring the body back into balance . If you are interested in using this as a medicinal, always check with your health care provider, otherwise it makes a lovely tea for general use.
Suggested preparation to use as a tonic: bring to the boil 2 heaped teaspoons Ashwagandha root per 1.5 cups cup of purest water then simmer for 15 minutes. Allow to steep till cool, then bottle and place in fridge. You may then take 1/3 - 1/2 cup of this twice daily to get the benefits many others have experienced.
Or if you prefer to take it as a tea to drink imediately. You would then half the amount, allow to steep for same time as above, then consume immediately. You may wish to sweeten lightly with a teaspoon of raw honey as it has an earthy taste, altho it is not unpleasant. Do not drink more than 2 cups per day.
