Dr. Virender, can you tell us about Ashwagandha, what it is and what it does.

Ashwagandha is a phenomenally wonderful Ayurvedic Herb. It has been used for more than 5,000 years and is classified as an Ayurvedic Adaptogen. They Ayurvedic Adaptogens are called Rasaynas. These Rasaynas are specialized herbs which constantly rejuvenate the body and also eliminate the toxic stuff. If we create that balanced equation, the body knows what to do and that is why Ashwagandha is one of the most-prized Ayurvedic herbs.

In lots of clinical research Ashwagandha has proven to show its accuracy and activity as has been discussed by our ancient teachers.

The hormonal balancing fact is wonderful. It has a powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and it actually bumps up your hormones to a balanced form. So Ashwagandha is an amazingly, amazingly wonderful herb.

We grow this herb, Ashwagandha, in its natural habitat and it needs a special type of dry-acre climate. The roots of the plants and the leaves of the plants are used for medicinal purposes.

Our Ashwagandha is very unique and very different. What you can do is buy anyone else's Ashwagandha and I want you to do this test at home. Buy the Ashwagandha, open the capsule, and compare with my Ashwagandha. If you take the Ashwagandha and taste it, put it in your mouth, you'll see the difference. It has a very unique, different taste. It has a chocolate smell/odor to it, slightly bitter and slightly sweet. Even if you put it in your mouth, you see a calming effect.

It's a phenomanally good calming herb, so that's why I am a fan of Ashwagandha. I use it with almost every patient - people who have issues with any health condition.

Ashwagandha is a phenomenal Ayurvedic herb. It has been used for more than 5,000 years. Our teachers of Ayurvedic medicine have sang praises about Ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha is such a unique adaptogen, which is also called a "Rasayna" in Ayurvedic medicine. Rasaynas are a specialized adaptogen which constantly rejuvenate the body and detoxify the body. Any herb which actually detoxifies the body and rejuvenates the body becomes an adaptogen because it adapts to the body's functions.

Ashwagandha has a very wide safety margin. Twenty-five percent of the body weight has not killed the animal. There is not even a fifty on Ashwagandha, so it is very safe. I don't recommend you eating 50kg of Ashwagandha, but it will still be very safe even if you eat that.

Ashwagandha has a unique property of balancing the hormones, detoxifying the system, cut down inflammation in the body, help the immune system, help the digestion. So all those combined together are very positive health benefits which everybody can be benefited - people under stress, people who are working too hard, people who are doing workouts, people are doing exercises.

It does enhance the effect of phenobarbitone, so if people are on those they have to be careful. Otherwise, Ashwagandha is quite safe for a lot of different types of health conditions.
