Ashwagandha (withania somnifera) is a shrub that grows in sandy and well drained soils. The root of this herb is one of the famous rejuvenating ingredients of Ayurveda. It is extremely useful against general weakness, fatigue, stress and sexual debility since it promotes rejuvenation and is also anti-inflammatory.
The benefits of Ashwagandha come together in this rasayana with a blend of twenty-five herbs into a powerful tonic for the nourishment of all bodily tissues. It promotes nutrition through healthy digestion, and supports the metabolism, longevity, and the immune system. This rasayana also includes ingredients which support many of the benefits of Ashwagandha.
The seeds of marking nut and walnut encourage the metabolic processes of muscular tissue, encouraging the growth, strength, and healthy operation. Ingredients like indian long pepper, vanshalochana, cardomon, cinnamon, cassia leaf, and cobra’s saffron alleviate fluid buildup such as phlegm and mucous and are particularly relieving for respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis.
In addition, several other herbs and spices, such as saffron encourage the aphrodisiac properties of Ashwagandha, and help to balance hormones and the natural production of reproductive fluids.
This blend of herbs and spices is delivered in a sweet and nourishing medium of jaggery, or raw sugar. Jaggery here joins the forces with the blend of herbs to provide additional nourishment and comfort to the bodily tissues. It brings its moisturizing and cooling effects to the tissues of the body helping lubricate and comfort overworked joints, muscles, and nerves.
This combination of effects is particularly helpful to the body and mind which are worn out by stress. Stress often causes dryness and depletion of the bodily tissues through its overactive and worrisome nature. This rasayana brings the nerve soothing benefits of Ashwagandha and other herbs in a sea of jaggery to give new energy and new life that is like a spring of water in the anxious desert of stress and depression.
For those who are prone to overthinking the continual uncertainty which is life, this is a great rasayana to help bring calm, confidence, and awareness. The many uses of Ashwagandha are rendered most tasty and powerful in this blend, and it is comforting, encouraging, and helps one to adapt to the vicissitudes which life presents. Additionally, Ashwagandha benefits the body greatly through its nourishment and promotes both longevity and immunity.
Ashwagandha’s thryroid benefits are particularly noteworthy. It helps to balance and strengthen the metabolism, setting one on the right course for a long and healthy life. A few spoonfuls taken with a warm glass of milk in the morning can give you the boost of endurance and stamina you need to go strong throughout the day. Enjoy!
