The ashwaganda herb is a small plant in the same family as the tomato. This plant is a stout shrub which can grow to a height of about five feet-170 centimeters-when fully matured. This herb is endemic to south Asia, and the ashwagandha grows abundantly in the wild in countries like India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
The meaning of the name ashwagandha, which is a Hindi word, is "horse's smell". The Hindi word not only reflects the idea of the smell of a horse exuded by the plant, but also connotes the properties of the plant to the strength of a horse. The use of the ashwagandha is immense in the Indian, ayurvedic system of medicine and for this reason certain herbalists have called the ashwagandha, the Indian ginseng - but unlike ginseng it is not stimulating.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).
