KSM-66 Ashwagandha

KSM-66 Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is one of the well known herbs of Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine from India. This herb has been used for centuries but is gaining popularity due to recent studies in pharmacology. Ashwagandha is known as a adaptogen that promotes balance in the body. Adaptogens are plant/herb substances that have been found to help our bodies manage stress and maintain balance, or homeostasis. Ashwagandha is one of the few herbs that have been shown to have effects on mental and physical aspects of human function.

KSM-66® Ashwagandha is a full spectrum extract that focuses on the traditional preparation method and only utilizes the root of the herb. According to the manufacturer the use of only roots has a better scientific foundation in terms of clinical evidence.
