Ashwagandha, a small perennial shrub, is a member of the Nightshade family, along with other medicinal plants like goji berry and foods like tomatoes and potatoes. It has been used for centuries throughout India and Africa, and has been featured in Ayurvedic texts dating back to 600 A.D.
Ashwagandha is a plant that is native to Africa, including Algeria, Egypt, Chad, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Swaziland; Asia with reference to Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, India; and Europe in terms of Greece, Italy and Spain. Withania somnifera thrive in the warm climates of all of these countries. Our bulk herbs suppliers for Ashwagandha root are from India. India has taken the lead in cultivating different varieties of Ashwagandha root, selecting those with larger roots and the ability to survive in less hospitable climates for development.
