Buy Ashwagandha : First of all, what is it ?
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also called Indian Ginseng, is one of the most important herbs in Indian culture and in Ayurvedic medicine. From Sanskrit, this name literally means “the smell of a horse”. This name comes not only from the smell of the plant, but also from the traditional belief that its ingestion would confer the strength and virility of a horse. Indians, but also the Western world since a few years, have used this medicinal herb to treat a wide variety of diseases.
Its properties include strengthening and restoring the immune system, reducing stress, improving memory, and even increasing libido in both men and women.

Ashwagandha has always been used to regain strength and vigor by people who do not have enough energy. This can be someone coming out of surgery, an illness or simply being too tired in daily life. Moreover, this plant helps the body to protect itself by stimulating the immune system.
Ashwagandha is also an adaptogen, capable of helping both the body and the mind by reducing the effects of stress, both physical and mental, and of reducing the deterioration of cognitive abilities, especially in the elderly. Like any adaptogen, it allows to train longer and more intensely.

Research shows many other additional benefits, such as promoting overall health at the cellular level even by acting as a powerful antioxidant, as well as breast, lung and colon health.
Ashwagandha – How to take 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 should be between 300 to 500 mg per day. We therefore recommend that you start with a dose of 1 gram and then gradually increase to 5 grams while testing our powder.
The powder has a strong tannin taste that is best eliminated by eating something with it. It is common practice to take it before bedtime.
Moreover, after one month of taking it, it is necessary to rest for one week so your body can better capture all its nutrients and assimilate all the benefits that this plant can give.
