The name Ashwagandha is from the Sanskrit language and is a combination of the word ashva, meaning horse, and gandha, meaning smell. The root has a strong aroma that is described as "horse-like." Long revered as an Ayurvedic Remedy, Ashwagandha is believed to relieve stress, increase energy levels and improve concentration. Ashwagandha has a mythical reputation as a herb of longevity and an elixir of life. It is useful for all who wish to strengthen their Chi, the vital energy of the body. It helps to cope with excessive stress and will strengthen the power of endurance. It sharpens mental powers and enhances the memory and will be a valuable aid to those who are studying. Last, but by no means least, its aphrodisiac powers will be appreciated by those who practice tantra or sex magic.
