Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

Aswagandha capsule can be taken with milk when it is warm as it is hot in potency. It is anti-inflammatory and reduces disorders due to increased Vatakapha. So it will help to reduce spasms, body pain, neuritis and numbness. You can take it for a month and then review.

It is normally used as an aphrodisiac, to improve energy levels, in certain neurological complaints like hemiplegia, insomnia, to increase weight, to relieve stress.

Warm gentle massages with Dhanvantaram thailam can also be done. Eat healthy food, drink enough water and exercise regularly.

There are no sideeffects seen in clinical practise when taken for the prescribed time. It can be discussed with your doctor if you have any systemic illness like diabetes, blood pressure, gastritis or autoimmune conditions. If you notice any discomfort after taking it, please discuss with your doctor.

Hello all,

Ashwagandha bearing the botanical name withania somnifera is a very powerful herb. It is never recommended for a long term run. This is because in doing the body becomes too much dependent on this herb which is never a good sign.

Basically the first thing to see is the purpose of usage of this drug. For example if an individual is taken ashwagandha preparation for peace of mind, it will work. The medicine shall be taken between 2 weeks for upto a month. The dosage shall then be slowly tapered and finally withdrawn. In doing so, it will clear the issue the body was facing and will bring the system back to its normal working condition.

All formulations which consist of ashwagandha requires strong prescription of an ayurvedic physician and shall not be taken on self.

DIVYA ASHWAGANDHA CHOORAN is very useful medicine. It is a powerful health supplement. Ashwagandha is great vitalizer and is very useful in today`s stressful life. Today we feel lots of mental stress and physical exertion in our routine work,jobs and studies. Ashwagandha is a great source of energy for body and brain. Its great role in mind relaxation makes it very useful. It gives sound sleep during night, relaxes mind, strengthens heart, rejuvenates body and reproductive system and is safe for all age groups. Ashwagandhais equally effective and safe for regular use for children and elders. We recommend you to take a regular course of divya ashewagandha powder in the doses of 5 grams twice a day with milk for best results. You can use it regularly without any fear of side effects. We welcome your queries.
