Ashwagandha  Tonic

Ashwagandha Tonic

This is a tonic that can be taken indefinately but must be taken at least three months to generate any real benefits.  It helps with energy and endurance and will increase both if taken consistently over a longer period of time. This is a tonic that is frequently prescribed in Ayurvedic medicine. 

This tonic is also used as an anti-inflammatory to relieve arthritis, to strengthen the immune system, enhance mental function and encourage restful sleep. 

So what is the recommended dosage of the powder?  1-2 grams of the powdered root taken three times a day.  You can also take it as an extract    100 to 200 mg twice daily.

Like all remedies, it is important to use a small amuont as a test to ensure you are not allergic to the herbal remedy.  This is a favorite and has many uses in Aruyvedic medicine.  I would recommend taking the time to read further on this tonic as it has many additional uses.
