The Ministry of Ayush has decided to re-examine the matter relating to the use of Ashwagandha (Withania somniferal) leaves in Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani (ASU) drugs by constituting an expert group.
Earlier, the ministry had issued an advisory against using the leaves of Ashwagandha in ASU drugs.
In the wake of Ayush ministry barring the ASU drugs manufacturers from using Ashwagandha leaves through a notification dated October 6, 2021, representations had been received from the ASU drugs manufacturing industry partners.
Also, the ministry had invited the stakeholders to discuss their concerns about the utilization of Ashwagandha leaves in ASU products. Based on this discussion, the ministry has decided to re-examine the advisory issued to the drug manufacturers to refrain from using Ashwagandha leaves by setting up an expert group.
The expert group will make appropriate recommendations to the government on the use of Ashwagandha leaves/Panchanga of Ashwagandha in ASU products based on scientific evidence.
