In the Sanskrit language, Ashwagandha means “smell of the horse”. The herb is included in Crux Focus (where it definitely does NOT smell of the horse) for its benefits associated with memory and you guessed it, focus.
Ashwagandha is a traditional Ayurvedic herb that has been used in India for centuries. Recent Western uses include improving brain function, providing energy, and relieving anxiety.
Other research on the benefits of ashwagandha has focused on the aging process and those showing the beginnings of cognitive decline, including from Alzheimer's. More research is currently being conducted on ashwagandha’s benefits across demographics and other conditions.
