#2 Ashwagandha Drink
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, has a wide range of benefits and significance in Ayurveda. Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years as a rejuvenating and Adaptogenic herb. In Sanskrit word “Ashwa” means horse and “Gandha” is vitality – a herb that promotes vitality and virility in its traditional use to support healthy male reproductive system.
Ashwagandha is also known traditionally to benefit athletes by building blood, muscles tissues and healthy semen. It has been well-researched for its ability to support healthy aging and strengthen the immune system.
If used daily in a beverage Ashwagandha helps minimize the negative effects of stress, supports a healthy immune system and helps build sexual and reproductive balance.
