Buy Ashwagandha : First of all, What is it?
Ashwagandha is a plant that began to be known because of its similarities to ginseng, but has become fashionable because of the many benefits it brings to our bodies.
This plant is considered an adaptogen. This means that its natural substances provide special nutrients that help the body to achieve optimal mental and physical performance. Ashwagandha is able to provide energy to the body while relaxing it.
Ashwagandha – Effects and Benefits
Among its main benefits, in addition to being a great antioxidant, its ability to fight insomnia, reduce stress, fat and promote muscle growth stands out, as well as its great help for libido.
Cortisol reduction: Cortisol is a hormone that our body secretes and when faced with very high levels, it can lead to problems of insomnia, depression or obesity. In addition, people with high levels of this hormone have more difficulty losing fat and gaining muscle mass.
Anabolic effect: Ashwagandha helps to increase testosterone levels. And although not everyone is affected in the same way, there has been an improvement of up to 15% in normal testosterone levels.
Reduced fat percentage and increased muscle: thanks to the study “Effects of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) and Terminalia arjuna (Arjuna) on physical performance and cardiorespiratory endurance in healthy young adults”. One of the first human studies, supplementation with 1g of ashwagandha per day for one consecutive month, showed that it resulted in muscle gain and fat reduction, as observed by the study subjects.
Hair Care: In addition to all these body benefits, this plant is able to stimulate hair follicles and maintain healthy hair. In addition, because of its relaxing function, it helps prevent hair loss due to emotional stress.
Ashwagandha – How to consume it?
Although it has no side effects, the recommended daily dose should be respected. If it is consumed as a dry root, you can consume between 3 and 6 grams, but if it is an extract, the dose will be 300 to 500 mg per day.
For our product, we therefore recommend that you start with a dose of 1 gram and then gradually increase to 5 grams.
In order to get the best out of it, it is advisable to take it in different doses distributed throughout the day, keeping one of them for a few hours before going to sleep.
Moreover, after one month of taking it, it is necessary to rest for one week so that our body can better capture all its nutrients and assimilate all the benefits that this plant can adopt.
