All Products Containing Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an evergreen shrub with yellow flowers that is native to India, the Middle East, and some parts of Africa. Also known as 'Indian ginseng' or 'winter cherry', this herb has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to improve the body’s resistance to stress, support energy levels, balance hormones, and help improve concentration. Ashwagandha is classed as an adaptogen, which is a specific herb or mushroom that is thought to have health benefits related to supporting the body’s stress response. It is the extracts from the roots or leaves of the Ashwagandha plant that are commonly used in teas, tinctures, or supplement form.

Ashwagandha offers numerous benefits for both men and women, such as stress support, contributing to overall well-being, and could support a restful night’s sleep. For women, ashwagandha also provides additional health advantages including hormonal balance, which could be beneficial during the menopause transition. Additionally, ashwagandha may benefit skin health due to its antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from free radical damage.

The time it takes for ashwagandha to work can vary depending on the individual and their health concerns. Generally, an individual may start to notice the effects of ashwagandha within 2 to 4 weeks of consistent use. However, some benefits, such as improved sleep and resistance to stress, may be observed much sooner.

While ashwagandha is generally safe, there may be some side effects for both males and females when it’s taken in large doses, including nausea and an upset stomach. It’s best to ask advice from your healthcare practitioner if you are currently taking other medication to help ensure there are no adverse reactions.
