Ashwagandha what? It may have a funny name, but Ashwagandha Root Powder is anything but laughable when you learn of its supposed healing properties. Also known as withania somnifera (not any easier to say), Ashwagandha Root Powder is Indian ginseng. It is believed to help treat problems associated with sleeplessness, anxiousness, joint pain, reproductive health, low energy levels, and tumors. But don’t go overboard on the Ashwangandha Root Powder. Too much will give you problems instead of help. Pair it with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Sprinkle on your everyday foods like tea or cereal..
