Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, is an Indian herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. The name "ashwagandha" comes from the Sanskrit words "ashva," meaning horse, and "gandha," meaning smell. This is because the roots of the plant have a strong horse-like odor. Ashwagandha is a small shrub with yellow flowers that grows in India, the Middle East, and Africa. The roots and leaves of the plant are used to make medicine. Ashwagandha is most commonly used for anxiety. It is also used for depression, Alzheimer's disease, memory loss, and as a "tonic" for overall health.
