What is Ashwagandha?
The name Asgandha is derived from Ashwa (Horse) and Gandha (Smell). It is called ashwagandha because of the foul odor that emanates from the root and leaves of Ashwagandha like urine and sweat of horses.
It is a medicinal herb that has been used in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine for thousands of years. It is an adaptogen, which means that it has the ability to help our bodies deal with stress.
