Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a perennial herb from the nightshade (Solanaceae) family. It grows as a small shrub, reaching between 35 and 75 centimetres in height, and is native to drier regions of India. Also known as »Indian ginseng« and »winter cherry«, ashwagandha has egg-shaped, hairy leaves and small green flowers which develop orange-red fruits. Its underground root tubers have been used in Indian Ayurveda for millennia and are the only ingredient of PlanetBIO ashwagandha powder.

Ashwagandha has long been known as one of the most important Ayurvedic herbs in India. It has been used for treating neurological problems and problems with concentration, to treat insomnia and reduce stress. Ayurveda believes that aswagandha is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs and has the ability to revitalize body and spirit.
Although ashwagandha is generally considered safe, we recommend pregnant women to avoid it due to lack of research. People suffering from thyroid problems or using corticosteroids should also avoid it due to the same reason. Although ashwaganda has been traditionally used as an adaptogen, some of the newer researches show it can negatively affect hyperthyroidism, because it can additionally overstimulate release of thyroid hormones.
The taste of PlanetBIO ashwagandha powder is slightly bitter due to its alkaloids content. It is therefore best to mix ashwagandha powder into fruit juices, smoothies and non-dairy yoghurts. You can also add smaller amounts to ice creams, energy bars, cookies and raw desserts.
For the sensitive ones we also offer PlanetBIO ashwagandha Capsules, which have been specially designed for people who do not like the bitter taste of ashwagandha powder.
Recommended daily intake is 1 teaspoon (3 grams) of PlanetBIO ashwagandha powder.
