Ashwagandha & Gokshura

I have no health problems as such. A couple of friends and family members have suggested me to take Ayurvedic supplements (Brand: Himalaya) namely, Ashwagandha & Gokshura, both. I want to know if it's safe to take both these pills?? If yes, what should be the dosage (the packs suggest twice daily)? How long does it take till one starts noticing any benefits? Are there any things to keep in mind while taking them? Till when should I keep taking them (time period)?
