The roots and reddish-orange berries of the Ashwagandha shrub have several medicinal uses. You may know it as Indian Ginseng, but it’s also known as White Berry. The word “Ashwagandha” comes from the Sanskrit word “Ashwa,” which means “horse,” and “Ashwa” is also the name of a type of horse.
The use of ashwagandha powder has been linked to reduced blood sugar levels by its ability to increase insulin production and enhance insulin sensitivity. Reduced cholesterol and lipid levels are two other ways that ashwagandha powder benefits cardiovascular health. Furthermore, it reduces blood fat levels, which in turn reduces the danger of cardiac issues including cardiac arrest and stroke.
