What Is Ashwagandha Extract (2.5% withanolides)?
Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in traditional Indian culture. Translated from Sanskrit, the name literally means 'the smell of a horse.' Indians, as well as a variety of other cultures, have used this medicinal herb for a wide variety of conditions. The herb itself is a member of the tomato family and has oval leaves and yellow flowers. The fruit it produces is red and about the size of a raisin. While native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, it is now grown all over the world, including in the United States. Within the plant itself, you will find steroidal lactones, alkaloids, choline, amino acids, and a variety of sugars. When used in herbal remedies, the extract is primarily taken from the root.
