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.
PlanetBIO ashwagandha consists of dried and carefully powdered tubers of ashwagandha plant that meet strict standards of organic farming.

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.
Recommended daily intake is 1 teaspoon (3 grams) of PlanetBIO ashwagandha powder.
Is there such a thing as free shipping?
Sure, why not? Here's how it's possible to get your products free of shipping charges.
Do you know the good ol' mantra "Customer is King; we appreciate our customers and would do anything for them" ? Well, it's true for us too, but then again we want the feeling to be mutual. So how can we help each other?
You help us with ordering more than just the minimum order (which is 30 EUR) => to pay the bills, salaries and to grow, offer you more, higher quality, special prices => and we promise to give back to you by not charging the shipping costs.
We're currently shipping to the following countries with the following shipping charges:
- Zone 0 (Slovenia, home country): 5,00 € (well, they are closer...)
- Zone 1 & 2 (Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Croatia): 11,99 €
- Zone 3 (Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Hungary, Poland, Great Britain, Lithuania): 15,99 €
- Zone 4 (Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Finland, Spain, Sweden): 20,99 €
- Zone 5 (Greece, Ireland, Portugal): 22,99 €
- Zone 6 (Bulgaria): 31,99 €
- Please note: We don't send to Switzerland, Turkey and Norway due to too high costs of transport & customs.
- Unfortunately we don’t offer free shipping for orders from Grand Canary Island and Tenerife.. We are trying our best to find the best solution.
... and we take away that cost if your order:
- Zone 0: over 20,00 €
- Zone 1 & 2: over 60,00 €
- Zone 3: over 80,00 €
- Zone 4 & 5: over 100,00 €
- Zone 6: over 120,00 €
Prices of products vary from as low as 2,49 € and up to 24,99 €, but on average they're around 14€. It's not hard to get total amount up to 100€. You don't have to, but if you do, we take care of the expensive transport.
Now, if you order (Zone 3 for example) for let say 64€, you pay extra 16€ for transporting the goods to your place. Wouldn't you rather top that order with another product of 16+€, and get the whole package without shipping charges? We're basically giving you the products for free and covering the transport fee ourselves, but have the opportunity to grow as a company, since we earn more that way.
How's that for a win-win situation?
