Some well-known botanicals used in Ayurvedic medicine include ginger, tulsi, turmeric, ashwagandha, Indian frankincense and amla. Despite its history of traditional use, Ayurveda is gaining more attention in clinical laboratories, where research on efficacy of ingredients is paving the way for increased application in Western markets.
