Key Health Benefits

Ashwagandha is an excellent overall tonic that can be incorporated into one’s daily life, especially when living through more stressful times. It is particularly suited for people who are in an overactive but debilitated state. It has immune-modulating and anti-inflammatory properties that are excellent in cases of chronic diseases, especially those marked by inflammation. Rich in iron, ashwagandha can also be used in cases of anemia to support hemoglobin production. It’s well-documented ability to support white blood cell production has also, in part, gained it a reputation in cancer prevention and care.

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.
