When I was at the
ChopraCenter, Ashwagandha was used for its tonic and rejuvenative effects. With its beneficial influence on the nervous system it was commonly prescribed for people who complained of fatigue, difficulty concentrating or a general sense un-groundedness.
Mixed with warm milk and taken before bed Ashwagandha is useful for people with insomnia and anxiety. Ashwagandha has a reputation in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative in conditions of nerve and muscle weakness. It is also used for men and women who are having trouble with fertility.
