Abstract

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera L. Dunal) is a medicinal plant widely used in Ayurveda as a Rasayana. It is well described for its strength promoting, bulking and rejuvenating properties, in all the three major classical texts of Ayurveda collectively called as Brihatryi. In a number of Nighantus, the Balya karma (strength promoting action) and Kshayahara (to alleviate consumption) actions of Ashwagandha are mentioned.
