Widely used in Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine, Ashwagandha herb is also known as Indian Ginseng. It improves the response to stress, possibly via an action on the adrenal glands, and also has anti-inflammatory and sedative effects.

A member of the nightshade family, Ashwagandha herb is native to India but now is also grown in the United States. It's often touted as the Indian version of ginseng, given its use in Ayurvedic medicine as an all-purpose tonic. Traditional Ayurvedic physicians prescribed preparations of the plant's roots for everything from hiccups to a variety of gynecologic concerns. What we now know is that the plant helps articularly as a mild sedative, an anti-inflammatory for creaky joints, and a libido booster.
