Ayurveda/How long to take Ashwagandha powder?


Sir I want to ask that for how much time can i take ashwagandha powder. I am healthy and i not have any disease. I am very active. I regylarly practice yoga and also workout for 30 min 6 days a week. So i have have very much busy schedule because i am a student and i have to concentrate on my studies also. I am taking ashwagandha powder from 1 week and it shown amazing results for me because after working out i get tired so much but after taking ashwagandha i feel very much energetic and i have also read that it is good for our brain and it also helps to cope with daily stress and also increases our immunity. So can i take it for lifetime as supplement or i should take it for 3months, 6 months or for one year or more.please reply as soon as possible.

Greetings !
Indeed Ashwagandha is a excellent medicine and food supplement too. You can take for regularly for couple of months only and then give a break of 2 -4 weeks and then can continue again. Means you do not have to make a habit of taking this.
