Historic Use

This plant has over 4,000 years of traditional use in its native India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Ashwagandha, which means ‘strong as a horse’, is one of the most revered plants in Ayurvedic medicine. It is classified as a ‘rasayana’, an elite group of medicinal herbs that can promote physical and mental health, can increase resistance against disease and diverse environmental factors, can revitalize a debilitated state, and can increase longevity.

Our Process

Our unique liquid capsules go through several delicate steps. The roots are first soaked in non-GMO alcohol and water. The resulting herbal extract is then gently concentrated further – without chemicals or high temperatures – while the alcohol is evaporated. Every step of the process is tested for both purity and potency from harvest to encapsulation.
