Ashwagandha or Withania originated in India and is recognised as an adaptogen and very popular in Ayurvedic Medicine. It has been in use for thousands of years and is sometimes referred to as Indian Ginseng. It is rich in iron, antioxidants, tannins, glucose, alkaloids, fatty acids and many other nutrients. The root is the most nutrient dense part of the plant.
Ashwagandha is believed to be particularly effective when combined with other herbs like Ginkgo Biloba and Rhodiola in particular. In Ayurvedic history it has been used to promote strength and vitality and bring the body back into balance (homeostasis).
Instructions: Can be brewed like a loose leaf tea. Boil water (90°C to 100°C) and add between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon of herbal blend per cup of water. Pour boiled water over the tea and allow to steep for at least 5 minutes before straining and serving. Honey or vegan sweeteners can be used to sweeten and enhance the flavour.
Herbal teas can often be rebrewed between sittings.
The above instructions are general guidelines only, and brew strengths and times can be adjusted to suit personal taste.
