The herb grows on a shrubby bush and is sometimes known as Winter Cherry or Indian Gingseng.
Indian medicine sees Ashwahandha as a herb that restores balance and normalizes internal workings of the body. It also has some diuretic or water relieving effect and this might be part of the way that Ashwagandha works in the treatment of blood pressure.
Again, as with some other articles here, I'll hold my hand up and admit that I'm not familiar with the use of Winter Cherry for blood pressure treatments.
Have you tried it alone or in combination with other herbal medicines?
