ASHWAGANDHA, aka “winter cherry” or “Indian ginseng,” directly translates to “odor of horse” because of the distinct scent it emits (which is similar to horse sweat). In Ayurvedic medicine, ashwagandha is classified as “Rasayana,” a type of essence “that helps in the healing of the body and the lengthening of life” (prohealth).

Ashwagandha and acerola have some similarities in agency. Both help improve the health of many people, including those with diabetes. Acerola assists in slowing the release of sugar into the bloodstream, which in turn prevents diabetic spikes and drops (organicfacts). Spikes and drops in blood sugar could be deadly for people with diabetes, so acerola is not a supplement to overlook.
