An ancient ayurvedic herb, Ashwagandha has a long history of medicinal use. It’s an adaptogen, which means it helps your body cope with whatever life throws at it.
Studies show that “Ashwagandha improves the body’s defense against disease by improving the cell-mediated immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals.”
It also “acts as an immunomodulator and hence can enhance life span of cancer patients, where lowered immunity states of the patient are the cause of concern.”
Known as Indian ginseng, it can increase stamina, improve memory and that it has anti-tumor effects.
