Alna Ashwagandha capsule

At alnavedic, we have manufactured Ashwagandha capsules from a mix of root extract and powder of pure Ashwagandha. This is to ensure that you receive the benefits of both powder and extract. The powder is a more natural form and contains full spectrum of phytochemicals which have a synergistic effect on each other. The extract on the other hand is a concentrated, more potent form of the raw herb and thus eliminates the need to take the medicine in large quantities. Thus, to reap the pros of both types whilst minimizing the cons of the two, alna ashwagandha capsule has been formulated as a mix of the two.
