Winter Cherry AKA Ashwagnadha can help
Stress, Anxiety, and Depression…
Its botanical name is Withania somnifera, and it’s also known by several other names, including Indian ginseng and winter cherry.
Ashwagnadha plant is a small shrub with yellow flowers that’s native to India and North Africa. Extracts or powder from the plant’s root or leaves are used to treat a variety of conditions. Aiding stress, anxiety, and depression are the 3 main goals I hope my tea has on you. Ashwagnadha is becoming popular and here are a few of it’s benefits.
