Grown by Foster Farm Botanicals in Calais, Vermont, Ashwagandha is traditionally considered an Ayurvedic herb that supports memory and learning capacity. At times referred to as the Indian Ginseng, it is considered helpful in slowing aging. The plant has gained popularity in the West and is added to tonic blends for its adaptogenic and aphrodisiac properties. The taste is nutty, slightly bitter and astringent. Our team loves to incorporate this root via powdered form and add it to oatmeal, chia pudding and smoothies.
