With almost $25 million in sales across mass and natural channels and big double-digit growth year-on-year, ashwagandha is no longer a niche botanical. An upcoming webinar will explore the science, supply and market for this mainstream success story.

The FREE webinar, Ashwagandha: Ayurveda’s flagship herb goes mainstream​, will take place on Tuesday, March 30 at 12pm Eastern/ 9am Pacific.

From supporting a healthy response to stress, to boosting cognitive function, sleep, metabolic wellness, adrenal function, sports performance, and more, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera​) is now being used in mainstream formulations across the US, from capsules and gummies to adaptogenic beverages.

According to HerbalGram’s Herb Market Report, sales of Ashwagandha supplements increased in the US Mainstream Multi-Outlet Channel (MULO) from 2018 to 2019 by 45% to $10,835,737, making it number 33 in the top selling herbal supplements list in MULO. And that was after increasing 165.9% from 2017 to 2018.  

In addition, sales in the Natural Channel increased 7% y-o-y to reach $13,661,462 in 2019, putting the herb at number 5 on the top selling herbal supplements list in this channel. Growth from 2017 to 2018 was 17%.

The upcoming webinar will explore the market, the ethnopharmacology, the supply chain, sustainability initiatives, and the science, with a particular focus on the herb’s anti-inflammatory and immune health benefits.
