Education Info:

Ashwagandha contains compounds that dissolve in both water and fat. For maximum absorption, it's best to take it with both—water and a source of healthy fat to get the full spectrum of benefits. To help you get the most from ashwagandha root, you can add a liquid that has healthy fat, ghee, or a healthy meal.

Mother Island Botanicals sources this ancient medicinal herb from small, family-owned farms in India that are committed to sustainable and responsible farming practices and follow strict guidelines to attain the USDA Certified Organic seal. Ashwagandha is thought to modulate the production and response of stress hormones, including cortisol. By potentially reducing high cortisol levels, ashwagandha may help mitigate the physical and psychological impacts of stress.

Some of the effects reported by users worldwide are that it enhances brain function and memory, calms the nerves, reduces anxiety, helps improve energy levels, reduces feelings of fatigue, and improves the quality of sleep.

Ashwagandha has deep roots in Ayurvedic medicine and has been used for at least 5000 years. Ashwagandha is known as an adaptogenic herb. While this hardy shrub is also known as “Indian Ginseng,” its constituents differ from American, Chinese, and Korean ginseng. The practice of calling ashwagandha “Indian Ginseng” likely arose from its powerful adaptogenic properties and support of the overall body systems. Somnifera, meaning sleep-inducing, reflects ashwagandha's traditional use in promoting relaxation. This herb is one of the most extensively studied adaptogens, believed to help manage the body's stress response and reduce the inflammatory response in the body.
