Ashwagandha sounds like that beautiful fictional African nation in the Black Panther movie; but Ashwagandha is not a place. It is an herb. And like that fictional place, it is said to have many mystical properties.
Botanically known asWithania somnifera, Ashwagandha is a member of the Solanaceae family (nightshades), a plant family that includes tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, peppers, and tobacco. Ashwagandha may not be grown on such large scales, like tomatoes or potatoes, but their health benefits are as powerful, if not, more powerful than their more popular nightshade counterparts.
Some may know Ashwagandha as Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry. It has been traditionally used for its Ayurvedic healing powers. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb.

Although we’re late to the party, the rest of the world has been slowly discovering the many benefits of Ashwagandha. Here are some of them.
