Ashwagandha Root

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also known as Indian ginseng, has been part of herbal medicine for at least the last 4,000 years. And like ginseng, it functions as a general tonic, an "adaptogen," which means its potential benefits are wide ranging.

Ashwagandha and Its use in 8-12Hz® is primarily for its ability to relax, de-stress and rejuvenate. Everything else, including its reputed ability to enhance sex, is just a bonus.

Ashwagandha is about as free of side effects as any herb or supplement out there, but the following cautions are worth observing.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you have any known allergies to foods in the nightshade family, including: potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant.
If you have a stomach ulcer.
If you have an auto immune disease such as MS, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis, since Ashwagandha may make your immune system more active, which although beneficial for most people, may increase the symptoms of auto-immune diseases. If you have one of these conditions, it’s best to avoid using Ashwagandha.
Before surgery, as there is the possibility that Ashwagandha’s ability to calm the central nervous system might conflict with anesthesia and/or other medications administered during and after surgery.
Consult your physician if you are taking medication or have any medical condition.
