As an adaptogenic herb, it is one of the most commonly used roots in Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine for increased stamina. It has also been traditionally used to promote a calm mind and encourage restful sleep. It is extensively used in India as a daily tonic and home remedy. Its Sanskrit name means “that which imparts the strength of a horse,” a name that suggests one of its traditional usages as a traditional Ayurvedic rejuvenative tonic for strength, energy and vitality.
