Aswhagandha, what is it?

Ashwagandha, its scientific name withania somnifera , more commonly called Indian Ginseng , is a shrub of the Solanaceae family. This plant is native to India and, to tell you the truth, its scent is not very pleasant... It is often compared to that of horses, hence its name. In the ancient Indian language, ashva means “horse” and gandha “smell”!🐴

More seriously, it is an Ayurvedic plant used for thousands of years by traditional Indian medicine. It is the root, the part richest in active ingredients, which is reduced to powder after drying. It can then be consumed as a decoction or in capsules.

Ashwagandha attracts the attention of many scientists because of its very broad action on both physical and mental well-being .

Moreover, if you are interested in this plant, we tell you about it in more detail in this complete guide to ashwagandha .

Ashwagandha and sleep: incredible effectiveness

We find, in its Latin name, the word “ somnifera ” (sleeping pill) which clearly indicates its soporific role, contributing to the return of restorative nights .

Among the multiple benefits of this plant , there is one that particularly interests us here. This medicinal plant helps the body fight against mood disorders. By limiting stress in particular, the beneficial effect of Ashwagandha on sleep is no longer in doubt. It is, among other things, thanks to tryptophan , an amino acid precursor of serotonin (the famous “ happiness hormone ”), that Ashwagandha has this ability. It actually promotes the onset of sleep.

As another anti-stress and relaxing active ingredient, we note the presence of withanolides A and D.

Furthermore, Ashwagandha is often cited as an adaptogenic plant . This means that it has the power to adapt to the needs of the body. This is how it makes it more resistant to different stresses, whether physical or psychological.

Ashwagandha as a complement: you will love your nights!

The benefit of supplementing this plant for sleep is obvious, because Ashwagandha and its benefits are numerous. Indeed, whatever form you choose to consume it (decoction, powder, capsules), our Ashwagandha food supplement will help you:
