ASHWAGANDHA – INDIA’S ANCIENT HERB FOR ANXIETY

Posted January 5, 2011 by admin

According to the ancient science of Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is the premier herb for imbalances of ‘vata,’ conditions that generally correspond to the nervous system. It has been used in India for thousands of years, and is especially good for anxiety as it helps to calm the mind, balance the nervous system, and promote a sense of wellbeing.

Sometimes called “Indian Ginseng” because of its usefulness for strengthening vitality and sexual vigor, I prefer Ashwagandha for women or for long-term use, because of its gentler action.

A great overall adaptogen herb, it’s even better when combined with Rhodiola, Passionflower, and Skullcap for anxiety and stress.
