Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is an herb commonly used in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India. It has a distinct horse smell to it and is said to provide the "strength and virility" of a horse to those to take it. 

Scientific research has shown ashwagandha to be useful for reducing cortisol levels which leads to decreased anxiety and perceived stress over time. It may also improve depression, OCD, osteoarthritis, high cholesterol, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, motivation, power output, and libido, but more research is needed in these areas.

  • Irritability (↓↓)

  • OCD (↓↓)

How

To Take?

  • There is no universally recommended dosage for ashwagandha. 

  • We suggest taking between 300-1000mg every day with either breakfast or dinner or simply follow the dosage recommendation on the supplement bottle you buy.

What

To Know?

  • It generally takes 1-2 months of  consistent supplementation to achieve maximum effect. However, caution is advised when taking for 6+ months as there is limited research on long-term side effects. 

  • Some reported adverse effects include gastrointestinal distress, headache, sleepiness and an allergic reaction. Also, pregnant women should avoid ashwagandha as it may cause early delivery.

Buying Tips

  • If you choose to purchase ashwagandha as a powder, we recommend buying a "size 00" capsule filling machine and capsules to make your own ashwagandha capsules as the taste for many is intolerable. In the long run, this set up will be less expensive and can easily be used for other powders you wish to supplement with.
