Ashwaghanda - the queen of plants

Ashwaghanda - die Königin der Pflanzen

Sleep and anti-stress berry

The botanical name of Ashwagandha is Withania somnifera . Translated, it means “sleep berry” because one of its outstanding effects is its sleep-promoting effect. It has a calming effect on the nervous system and has a rejuvenating effect on our cells, especially on the muscles and bone marrow. Ashwagandha stops the aging process and catalyzes the anabolic (building) processes in the body. Ashwagandha is one of the Rasayana plants with adaptogenic effects. Adaptogens are active plant substances that help the organism adapt to physical and emotional stressful situations.

The root of the plant is processed. This has bitter, astringent and sweet properties. In Ayurvedic therapy, Ashwagandha supports stress conditions such as exhaustion, weakness, overwork and lack of sleep. The root calms and strengthens the mind.

For weak libido and infertility

Translated from Sanskrit, Ashwagandha means “that which has the smell of a horse,” as this plant is said to impart the vitality and sexual energies of a horse. This plant is therefore used, among other things, for weak libido and infertility. Ashwagandha regenerates the hormonal system. According to Ayurvedic medicinal herbalism, the Dravyaguna, the plant has a Vata and Kapha-reducing effect and is considered the “anti-stress plant”.
