Ashwagandha is a potent herb with a wide variety of applications within Ayurvedic medicine. It is a general tonic and rejuvenator, an aphrodisiac, calmer of the nerves, a mild sedative, and one of the best herbs for the treatment of Vata aggravation. Ashwagandha in Sanskrit means, “that which has the smell of a horse”, and it can impart the strength, vitality, and sexual energy of a horse to one who takes it. As a tonic it is especially revitalizing to the plasma of the blood, bone marrow, muscle tissue, and to reproductive tissue. There are many uses of Ashwagandha for all conditions of weakness or tissue deficiency in children and the elderly, as well as for debility due to chronic diseases, overwork, or lack of sleep as a result of mental exhaustion.
The benefits of Ashwagandha are profound and it is the best rejuvenative herb, particularly for the muscles the marrow, semen, and for the Vata constitution. Ashwagandha benefits weak and atrophied tissues through its calming and nourishing actions. It is a great support of blood production, and through this it catalyzes the anabolic processes of the entire body. An additional benefit of Ashwagandha is that it is sattvic herb, and extends its calming effects to the subtler levels of the body and to the mind. It helps the body and the mind to better adapt to changes and stress which life presents by strengthening them and making them more alert.
The uses of Ashwagandha are many, but for such regenerative purposes milk decoction is best. Milk augments the rejuvenative and nutritive effects of Ashwagandha. For this preparation, Ashwagandha dosage should be about one teaspoon, and to such a decoction one may add raw sugar, honey, pippali (indian long pepper), and basmati rice. This combination inhibits aging and is a catalyst for anabolic processes of the body, that is, processes of tissue growth and regeneration. This preparation is very sattvic and is one of the best for the mind to which it brings clarity and nutrition, calmness, patience, and it promotes a deep, natural and dreamless sleep. A benefit of Ashwagandha steeped in warm milk is that it is good for weak pregnant women, as it helps to stabilize the fetus and the hormones and helps rebuild tissue in the female reproductive organs. Ashwagandha churna is great for tea, but it can also be used to make Ashwagandha extract which is useful for preparing more complex formulations.

About Gopala Ayurveda:
The Hindi meaning Gopala is ‘The Nurturer of the Cow’. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.
The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts. To this end, we have spearheaded research to develop Ayurveda’s vast herbal tradition into a comprehensive range of products to support healthiest and longest lives for our customers. These products have been met with warm reception in medical communities all over the world, and continue to serve the personal and healthcare needs of all parts of humanity.
Gopala is a pioneer in purely organic ayurvedic supplements, herbs, and oils. We promote healthy foods and nutritional products, and despite utilizing the benefits of modern science and technology, we train a strict eye on all stages of development and processing to be sure that our products do not suffer contact with any toxic or synthetic chemicals. Since the birth of this project, we have focused on the development of safe and effective remedies that will help people lead richer and healthier lives.
Gopala is not simply organic, which means to be free from any chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives, preservatives, and heavy metals, but we are 100% Certified Organic, meaning that the customer has the added security of the USDA regulatory action which requires that all ingredients in all products be traceable through their processing history and to the place of origin. Consequently, the consumer may know both exactly where and when each herb came from and the circumstances surrounding this journey to their hands. Gopala is unique in this regard. Other manufacturers, having claimed proprietary rights to ancient formulae have taken the liberties of enhancing these revered concoctions with preservatives, synthetic substitutes, and more. We, however, continue this venerable tradition as it has been maintained for thousands of years, in the sole interest of a whole and healthy life.
