Welcome to HCM,
I have read your query, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an herb commonly used in ayurveda . Although it's not botanically related to ginseng, ashwagandha is often called "Indian ginseng" due to its supposedly rejuvenating effects. Ashwagandha is regarded as an adaptogen (a type of herb said to strengthen your resistance to stress while enhancing your energy). Often used to boost the immune system and acts as a potent antioxidant, especially after an illness or cancer. Research has shown that the herb is toxic to several types of cancer cells, and reduces side-effects from chemotherapy. Will recommend you consult your physician before starting any medications. Thanks
