  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a powerful adaptogenic herb that has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Here are some of the benefits of Ashwagandha:

    • Reduces stress and anxiety: Ashwagandha helps to reduce cortisol levels, a hormone that is released in response to stress. By regulating cortisol levels, Ashwagandha can help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, and promote relaxation.
    • Improves cognitive function: Ashwagandha has been shown to improve cognitive function and memory, as well as reduce brain fog and fatigue. It can also help to protect the brain against oxidative stress and neurodegenerative diseases.
    • Enhances physical performance: Ashwagandha has been shown to enhance physical performance by improving endurance, strength, and muscle recovery. It can also help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the muscles, which can improve exercise recovery.
    • Boosts immunity: Ashwagandha has immunomodulatory properties, which means that it can help to balance the immune system and enhance its function. It can also help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which can improve overall immune health.
    • Supports overall well-being: Ashwagandha is a natural and effective way to support overall well-being. It can help to improve energy levels, promote relaxation and restful sleep, and enhance overall physical and mental performance.


    Ashwagandha is adaptogenic, and unlike other stimulating plants, it is both stimulating and claming. Somnifera means sleep inducing, so although it is stimulating, it can calm the mind and help with insomnia. Ashwagandha is warming and drying. It nourishes the endocrine system and helps improve thyroid function for people who have hypothyroidism. Ashwagandha is also great for men and women to help increase libido, especially when trying to conceive. Ashwagandha is both fat and water soluble/ In order to get the full benefits, it's best taken with healthy fats (nuts, nut milks, nut butters, avocado, coconut fat, ghee, dairy milk, etc.).

    • Choose a planting location: Ashwagandha prefers well-drained soil and can tolerate a range of soil types, from sandy to clay. It grows best in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade.

    • Prepare the soil: Till the soil to a depth of 6 to 8 inches and remove any weeds or debris. Ashwagandha prefers slightly alkaline soil with a pH of 7.5 to 8.0. If your soil is acidic, you can add lime to raise the pH.

    • Sow the seeds: Ashwagandha seeds are small and should be sown on the surface of the soil. Sow the seeds about 6 to 12 inches apart, or sprinkle them evenly over a prepared bed. Lightly press the seeds into the soil, but do not cover them.

    • Water regularly: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Ashwagandha requires consistent moisture for optimal growth. Water deeply once or twice a week, depending on the weather and soil conditions.

    • Fertilize sparingly: Ashwagandha doesn't require heavy fertilization, but you can apply a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing season to promote healthy growth.

    • Mulch the soil: Mulching can help to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as straw or shredded leaves, around the base of the plants.

    • Harvest the roots: Ashwagandha roots can be harvested after about six months of growth, once the leaves start to turn yellow and the plants begin to die back. Carefully dig up the roots and wash them thoroughly. Allow the roots to dry in a cool, dry place for several days before storing them in an airtight container.
