Who It’s For: Adults

How It Works: A classic adaptogen, ashwagandha is the flagship herb of Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine from India, where it is referred to as the “Prince of Herbs.” It is, in fact, one of the few herbs with significant effects on both psychological and physiological aspects of human functioning. The use of ashwagandha is experiencing major growth worldwide because of a spate of recent scientific studies, particularly on KSM-66, the proprietary form of the herb that we use for enhanced potency and absorption in the convenience of a vegicapsule. Besides being powerfully effective for dealing with stress and anxiety, it is also clean and sustainably sourced. Ours is a highly potent 12:1 concentration, with each 300 mg vegicapsule containing the equivalent of 3600 mg (300 mg x12) of dried Certified Organic ashwagandha standardized to contain at minimum 5% withanolides. This makes for an exceptionally effective full spectrum extract that preserves the balance of the various constituents in the original herb together with all its critical tonic and adaptogenic qualities.
It might be added that Strest®, a multi-herb formula, is likely more suitable for those experiencing a barrage of stress and anxiety symptoms and who are looking to benefit from a combination of herbal ingredients and their more energizing collective effect. On the other hand, Ashwagandha, a single adaptogenic herb, can be a more appropriate solution for those looking for a more calming effect, those with sensitivities, or those for whom certain herbal ingredients are contraindicated.
