In traditional Hindu medicine (Ayurveda), ashwagandha (Winter Cherry) plays a similar role to that of ginseng in China, which is why it is also known as Indian ginseng. The herb is also said to be antibiotically active. Traditionally, however,
especially the root bark is employed for various treatments. In India, ashwagandha is deemed a rejuvenating tonic and aphrodisiac, as well as a mild sleep-promoting agent. From the inedible and actually poisonous berries, an alternative vegan rennet for coagulating cheese can be obtained.

Content: approx. 100 ashwagandha winter cherry seeds
