A Revered Ancient Medicine

Ancient and modern day Ayurvedic healers know that the root of the ashwagandha plant has a positive effect on mood, sexual vitality, and brain function. Ashwagandha is used to promote all-around good health and well-being, and our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder brings you the support you need for dealing with life’s most stressful situations.

Ashwagandha Root Powder Benefits

Ashwagandha contains a chemical substance called Withaferin-A, which stimulates the neurotransmitter pathways in the brain. This important compound increases receptivity of acetylcholine, helping to improve mental acuity, enhance physical endurance, and reduce brain cell degeneration. Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder is one of the best defenses against anxiety, mood swings, panic attacks, and depression, and can have a calming effect on the body that varies in strength, depending on the severity of each individual’s condition. Ashwagandha works as a sleep aid for many who suffer from insomnia.

Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder has adaptogenic properties that encourage the body’s natural ability to resist emotional and physical stress. Ashwagandha Root Powder supports overall body health, boosting the immune system and offering support for the adrenal glands, which regulate blood sugar levels by producing hormones. Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder can help stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and reduce fatigue.

Full-Spectrum Healing

Ashwagandha has been revered for its health benefits for thousands of years. Its medicinal properties have a healing effect on many of the body’s systems. Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder contains compounds that increase the levels of three natural antioxidants found in the human body, superoxide dimutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase. These substances act as anti-inflammatories and help to reduce stress.

Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder provides full-spectrum nutrition and is rich in alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, and amino acids.

The leaves of the Ashwagandha plant have been used for centuries for their illness-fighting properties, but it’s the root that provides most of the benefit of this ancient medicine. Ashwagandha root is often used in India to aid geriatric patients and to combat the effects of amnesia.

Our Raw Ashwagandha Root Powder is light in color and has a mild flavor with a slightly nutty aroma. It mixes well into smoothies, shakes, and cereals, and makes a wonderful sleep aid with mixed with soy, coconut, or almond milk.

Ashwagandha Root Powder Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, our Raw Ashwagandha Powder has a shelf life of two to three years. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.


We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
