Ashwagandha Root Organic- The scientific name for organic Ashwagandha is withania somnifera; it is also known as “Indian ginseng” and “winter cherry.” However it is not botanically related to either ginseng or the cherry tree; it is actually part of the same family that includes potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes and peppers as well as tobacco and belladonna (deadly nightshade).
