Description

  Organic Ashwagandha Powder is an ancient medicinal herb.

Organic Ashwagandha Powder has been used in Ayurvedic treatments for thousands of years.  Ayurveda is an Indian system of healing which has been used traditionally in India to promote healing and general well being.  This fine creamy/brownish powder is ground down from the roots of an evergreen shrub native to India.  Organic ashwagandha powder has become increasingly popular as more people look to ancient herbs to support busy modern lifestyles.

In Ayurveda ashwagandha is often referred to as the ginseng of Ayurveda.  These coveted properties make it the perfect herb for the busy lifestyles we lead in today’s world.

Our pure, organic ashwagandha is ground down from the whole root and has nothing added.  It has a characteristic aromatic smell/flavour and mixes easily into juices and smoothies.
