Ingredient Feature: Ashwagandha 09.28.18

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a plant classified as a superfood, which is a food rich in compounds, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients considered beneficial to a person’s health. Typically, the root and berry are used to make medicine. Here at 8th Wonder Tea, however, we chose an ashwagandha extract that’s made from the entire plant so tea drinkers can enjoy all the benefits this superfood has to offer. 

Also known as “Indian ginseng,” ashwagandha has been widely used to boost immunity, lower cholesterol, increase stamina and endurance, and reduce anxiety and depression. The natural antioxidants, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and beta-carotene have been thought to effectively inhibit the mental effects caused by aging and Alzheimer’s disease. There are several other health claims that suggest even more cognitive and physical advantages.
