In the Ayurvedic tradition, ashwagandha is considered an overall tonic and especially a male tonic, an adaptogen and a revitalizer.
For a tea, boil 1/2 teaspoon. (3 to 5 grams) of ashwagandha root in one cup of water for 10 minutes, cool and strain. Traditionally, a tea is made with milk and sugar or honey and taken at bedtime to promote dreamless sleep.
