Product Description

According to the ancient Sanskrit texts, the main prabhava (property) of ashwaghanda is balya, meaning that it gives bala (strength). In Ayurveda, bala can signify mental, emotional, spiritual, physical or sexual strength. Ashwagandha is known mainly for giving mental and physical strength, as well as sexual stamina.

Ashwa is the Sanskrit word for "horse," and gandha is the word for "smell." Vaidya Mishra explains that the word, gandha, can also mean "essence of" or "character." It is the essential character of horses to be strong, and to easily cope with ever increasing workloads. Ashwagandha gives you a great ability to handle stress, especially mental stress, by making you strong like a horse.

Horses also have strong sexual energy. The word for aphrodisiac in Sanskrit is vajikarana (coming from the word vaji, another name for horse). Ashwagandha makes you strong sexually like a horse. It is not a sattwic herb, but when you need strength and stamina (especially mentally, physically and sexually) ashwagandha is a very helpful rajasic herb.

Learn seven other prabhavas (special qualities) of ashwagandha in Vaidya Mishra's 32 minute audio lecture: Ashwagandha - Learn About a Great Herb for Stamina, available for instant download for $0.99.  In this lecture you will also learn other important names and physical properties of this famous Ayurvedic herb directly from the Sanskrit texts.

In Ayurveda, ashwagandha is not recommended for people with a pitta physiology, or with lots of amavisha (acidic, reactive toxins) in the body. The reason is that ashwagandha has both an ushna guna (warming physical effect) and ushna virya (warming thermogenic property, or potency). These Total Ashwagandha Tablets are suited for vata and kapha people. Pitta people should use Ashwagandha Plus Tablets or one of the alternative delivery systems in the products listed below.

Use with caution, under the direct supervision of a Shakha Vansya Ayurvedic practitioner, and consult your physician before using.
