We use Ashwagandha at the Chopra Center for its tonic and rejuvenative effects. With its beneficial influence on the nervous system it's commonly prescribed for people who complain of fatigue, difficulty concentrating and a general sense un-groundedness. Mixed with warm milk and taken before bed ashwagandha is useful for people with insomnia and anxiety. Ashwagandha has a reputation in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative in conditions of nerve and muscle weakness. It is also used for men and women who are having trouble with fertility. In Sanskrit, the name ashwagandha means “the smell of a horse” implying that this aromatic herb provides the strength of a stallion. It has a traditional use in supporting rejuvenation after illness and as a sexual enhancer for both men and women. Ashwagandha is sometimes referred to as an aphrodisiac, which in Ayurveda is a term applied to substances that enhance the quality of reproductive tissues as well as enliven sexual potency. Ashwagandha is the primary rasayana or rejuvenative for masculine energy. Latin name: Withania somnifera      60 Capsules per Bottle.

The practice of nasal cleansing - known as Neti - has been used by practitioners of Ayurveda and Yoga in India for thousands of years. Neti is used to relieve sinus and nasal congestion, infections, post nasal drip and headaches.    Using a Neti pot and Nasya is a traditional method to purify and revitalize the breathing passages. In the same way that massage nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, Neti and Nasya nourish and rejuvenate the breathing passages. This process can reduce allergies and decrease your chances of contracting upper respiratory infections. It is also useful before taking a plane flight to keep your breathing passages moist. A Neti pot is a small container with a spout that can be gently placed into your nostrils through which warm salt water is administered. Usually made from a ceramic material, a typical Neti pot holds about 2/3 of cup of water to which 1/8 teaspoon of salt is added. Place the spout of the Neti pot in one nostril and gently pour in the warm salt water. Your head should be positioned so the water runs out the other nostril. Any remaining liquid in your nasal passages is expelled and the process is repeated on the other side.
