Ashwagandha is a popular Indian adaptogenic herb that improves the body’s resistance to stress. Our ashwagandha is made with KSM-66, the most popular, research-backed form of this time-honoured herb.
This whole-plant extract is standardized to contain at least 5% withanolides — ashwagandha’s main active ingredient — and sourced from the roots of the plant, which hold the highest concentration of active compounds.
KSM-66 is also the most researched form of ashwagandha on the market, with multiple clinical studies suggesting that it may help with stress, sexual function, exercise performance, memory, sleep, hypothyroidism, and more.
Each bottle holds 60 vegan-friendly capsules with 500 mg of ashwagandha extract.

What are the benefits of ashwagandha?
Like other adaptogenic herbs, ashwagandha is used to improve the body’s resistance to various forms of stress. That’s why it’s most commonly taken to help with stress and anxiety, with multiple studies showing benefits. Ashwagandha is also used to promote relaxation and improve sleep, cognitive function, exercise performance, sexual health, low thyroid function, and more.
Is it safe to take ashwagandha daily?
Studies have shown that taking ashwagandha daily for as long as two months is safe and was not associated with any serious side effects. However, if you’re taking ashwagandha regularly for a month or longer, you should pay attention to any possible symptoms of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). For example, one case report reported hypothyroid symptoms in a 62-year-old woman after two months of taking 1950 mg of ashwagandha extract daily.
What are the side effects of ashwagandha?
According to research, ashwagandha does not have any significant side effects and can be “safely used in human beings for the treatment of acute and chronic diseased conditions.”
Who should not take ashwagandha?
Since ashwagandha seems to boost thyroid gland function, it’s not suitable for people who already have an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
How quickly does ashwagandha work?
Most people find that ashwagandha takes about 30 minutes to an hour to start working, although it may take longer depending on when you ate and your individual body chemistry.
What is the best time to take ashwagandha tablets?
The best time to take ashwagandha depends on your goals. For example, if you’re taking it to help with a particularly stressful event, it’s best to take it about an hour beforehand. Meanwhile, if you’re taking it for sleep, it’s better taken before 30-60 minutes before bedtime. You can also take ashwagandha at set times daily, such as the morning and afternoon.
Should I take ashwagandha on an empty stomach? (Before or after meals)
Traditionally, ashwagandha is taken with milk, and there’s a belief that some of its ingredients may be better absorbed in the presence of fats. However, there isn’t any research in this area, so it’s best to try taking it both with and without meals to see what works better for you.
