What is Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha is a plant that is found in Africa, India, and the Middle East. The root and berries of the plant are used to make a medicinal herb in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. In many countries, the medicinal herb is sold as a dietary supplement.
What are the Health Benefits of Ashwagandha?
There are some studies that show that ashwagandha has certain health benefits. For example, some studies show that ashwagandha can alleviate anxiety, depression, stress, and improve arthritis. These studies have been small in number and have had design flaws, and therefore have not adequately shown that ashwagandha is a safe and effective adaptogen.
