Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic Medicine. Sometimes referred to as “Indian ginseng” in the West, it is often referred to as an adaptogen, just like its Asian and American ginseng counterparts. In simple terms, this means it is used as a general tonic and the body “adapts” it to what it needs. While used for many conditions, the science seems a little iffy on its effectiveness. Let’s figure out if this is the case, or does there need to be more research or maybe more acceptance of its traditional uses.

Sperb’s Herbs, World Herbs – Ashwagandha

Each week an exciting new episode of the Sperb’s Herbs, World Herbs podcast is recorded. Each episode covers another traditional herb from somewhere in the world and will go into great depth about it. Besides covering the basics of the herb including its traditional use and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Whether that is a unique story or an interesting perspective, there will always be something different to learn about episode’s herb.
