Check out this behemoth Ashwagandha Root harvest! There is nothing in the world quite like Kauai-grown Ashwagandha Root. This plant is abundant in our gardens, & for this reason, we are increasing the ratio of Ashwagandha root in some of our favorite herbal blends: Love Potion tea; Endurance & Green Energy Superfood powder.

The Ashwagandha root is one of Doug’s favorite herbs for endurance & supporting longevity. Ashwagandha is synonymous with enhancing one’s life force or libido. In Sanskrit, the word Ashwagandha means “The Vigor of a Stallion”.

According to Vaidya Smith, a well-known practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, “Ashwagandha is a well-known semen-promoter & treats both impotency & infertility, as well as increases penis size & strength…Although it is considered to be the primary aphrodisiac & tonic for men, it can be safely used by women for up to one year in cases of pregnancy, general debility, nervous debility & stress…Ashwagandha increases memory & learning capabilities…& rejuvenates nerve & brain tissues…it also has anti-arthritic effects, builds muscle & bone tissue & helps patients with degenerative disorders like HIV & Aids…Large doses of the root show protection from x-rays & other radiation”.

The Ashwagandha plant is a native Indian plant, known as “Indian ginseng” that works to strengthen, restore, & rejuvenate the immune system: reducing inflammation, promoting clarity, & creating an overall calming energy.

Studies have shown that Ashwagandha inhibits the growth of breast, lung, colon, & central nervous system cancers.

We are so grateful that the Kauai Farmacy gardens are abundant with this magnificent healing plant.
