Ashwagandha Supreme™ is packaged in a bottle of 90 veggie caps, each containing approximately 500 mg of Withania somnifera without fillers, binders or excipients.

Numerous modern studies have found that ashwagandha is very effective in reducing inflammation, treating tumors, decreasing stress, increasing mental activity, invigorating the body, and as an antioxidant. Researchers have found that extracts of the shrub had activity that was similar to GABA, which could explain why the plant is effective in reducing anxiety.

Ashwagandha is most well known to decrease fatigue, allow you to handle stress more effectively, increase strength and stamina, increase libido, improve memory and clarity, and produce restful sleep. The various conditions it has been used for include arthritis (it is anti-inflammatory), chronic lung conditions (asthma), immune deficiency, high blood pressure, autoimmune problems, hypothyroidism, and many others. Studies show that ashwagandha improves cognition, memory and perhaps longevity. It is especially useful in patients under a great deal of stress, with sleep problems, cognition problems and various neurological imbalances.

Contraindications: Because ashwagandha can lower blood pressure (can act as a calcium channel blocker) and blood sugar I would be careful in prescribing it to diabetics and people with hypotension (since it is an adaptogen, it will probably be OK though we suggest you monitor the patient). It should not be used during pregnancy or in patients with active peptic ulcers. I would not prescribe it to patients on sedatives. I have not been able to find any cases where side effects actually occurred yet these precautions make sense based on the physiology of how it performs. It is in the nightshade family so monitor patients you give it to that have known nightshade sensitivities (most nightshade sensitive patients tolerate ashwagandha very well).

Recommended dose for Ashwagandha Supreme™ is between 1-3 caps daily.
