  • Pills or. Powder?

    I'm new to Ayurvedic treatment and am starting by taking ashwagandha for stress and sleep problems - but pills seem cheaper - so should I go for pills or powder?
    Also should I make it part of my regular diet or just take it periodically when needed?
    Many thanks

    medicine whether ayurveda or modern is never advised to take for long period. There will be side effects. Form of medicine is important, carrier(milk, water, etc) also important when it is ayurveda. Without knowing your condition i cant finalize the form and dosage.

      Yes, Ashwagandha is good for stress and sleep. Ashwagandha is bitter in taste so tablets would be
      convenient than Powder form. We recommend periodic use of Ashwagandha, you can reduce the dose
      or discontinue the medicine once you are free from the symptoms.

      Since you are new to ayurveda, I would like to inform you that there are many other herbs such as
      Jatamansi, Brahmi, Jyosthimati, Tagar which helps to promote sleep and also reduces stress.

      In market there are many ayurvedic medicines (tablets) for insomnia and stress containing the above
      herbs and are safe and effective. For better relief, one must follow healthy diet, maintain healthy
      lifestyle and exercise regularly. Practicing Yogasanas, Pranayama, Meditation are great supportive
      therapy for insomnia.

            Hi Brendanxx

            You can take either pills or a powder form of ashwagandha because of a herbal quality it is having, but first, you start a treatment you must know the qualities it is having in it.

            Ashwagandha is a Sanskrit word which is derived from two words ‘Ashwa’ (Horse) and ‘Gandha’(Odour). The term means “the smell of a horse” as Ashwagandha root smells like urine of horse.

            It is also known to vitalize the body to give it strength like a horse. Ashwagandha has more than 4000 years old medicinal history. In Ayurveda, it is among the most vital herbs and also known as the king of herbs.

            Ashwagandha is also known by the name Indian ginseng or Winter cherry. This herb is used to treat diseases such as breath-related problems, female-specific problems, fevers, sleeplessness, inflammation, etc. It also strengthens the muscular, reproductive digestive and nervous systems.
