This name also symbolizes and hints towards its giving the user the virile power of a stallion. Its heavy and nurturing qualities can pacify stress, emotional instability, ungroundedness and a scattered mind . Ashwagandha, if taken in the morning is known to impart vigor and strength and if taken at night, will bestow deep sound and uninterrupted sleep. Warm , fresh , homemade Almond milk is a great accompaniment with Ashwagandha.
