Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) is a widely used and well-known ayurvedic herb from south Asia. It is also referred to as the ''Indian Ginseng'' because of its restorative and rejuvenating properties. Traditionally it has been consumed as a booster for immunity, energy, strength, and stamina. It helps improve the production of white blood cells which helps combat infection-causing organisms and hence strengthen the immune system.

Adaptogens are a combination of vitamins, herbs and amino acids that help manage toxins and stress-related diseases. Furthermore, It is an aphrodisiac which helps improve fertility in men and women.
