What Is Ashwagandha Nootropic?
Withania somnifera or Ashwagandha is a shrub known as the winter cherry, Indian ginseng, or poison gooseberry. The plant is in the Solanaceae or nightshade family and is used as a medicinal herb and dietary supplement. Ashwagandha has been used for around 6,000 years in Ayurveda (the traditional system used to treat ailments in India).
How to Use Ashwagandha Powder Nootropics?
Traditionally, the roots, leaves, seeds or flowers are dried, crushed and mixed with water to form a paste or soaked in water to create a tonic. You can apply the paste formed from powdering the roots locally to reduce inflammation and treat ulcers of carbuncles. You can also use it to treat a range of other ailments, including boils, colic, pimples, piles and worms. It's even used together with other medicines to counter the effects of certain snake venoms and scorpion stings.
The leaves can help with fever and swelling, and the seeds are anthelmintic. The flowers are also astringent, diuretic and have aphrodisiac properties. The entire plant has properties that alter and help the immune system.
The powdered supplement you can buy is usually mixed with ghee, honey or water. You can apply it topically or ingest it by mixing the powder with water, desserts, smoothies or hot beverages.
