WHY REMEDY'S NUTRITION ASHWAGANDHA IS A BETTER BUY THAN THE BIG CHEAP BRANDS

Ashwagandha at $10.69* a bottle sounds like a deal.  Is it?  That bargain brand provides only 660 milligrams per capsule.  Remedy's  Nutrition Organic Ashwagandha provides 1,000 milligrams per capsule with no fillers, giving you 20,400 more milligrams per bottle.  Informed consumers know how to get the best product for the best price.   

Ashwagandha is an Adaptogenic Herb

Ashwagandha has been classified as an "adaptogenic"; because it supports so many different body functions it is said to 'adapt' to the needs of the body.   It is especially believed to support the adrenal gland as it relates to the production of stress hormones such as cortisol and aldosterone. Ashwagandha increases energy production within the mitochondria and the production of ATP.

Ashwagandha has been described as a 'nervine' tonic, meaning that it supports the healthy function of the central nervous system.   A clinical study (double-blind, placebo-controlled)  compared the effects Ashwagandha  and placebo on psychomotor performance in 30 healthy participants. Sensorimotor function, auditory reaction time, and mental arithmetic ability were improved in the group receiving Ashwagandha as compared to the placebo group.6

Ashwagandha contains the compounds Withaferin-A Sitoindosides and acylsterylglucosides which support body functions when the body is exposed to stress.  For athletes, this may result in increased endurance. Ashwagandha was shown to increase swimming performance in rats as judged by increase in swimming time during physical endurance tests.  In Ashwagandha treated animals, the swimming time was approximately doubled. There was a significant increase in the body weights of the Ashwagandha treated group as compared to control for a period of 3 months in rats.  Athletes may want to visit our "sponsored athletes" link for stories on how our athletes are reaching their goals through dietary modification, exercise and targeted supplementation. 

Ashwagandha and Opiate Withdrawal

Treatment with opiates (such as certain painkillers) may result in withdrawal symptoms at the end of treatment.  Ashwgandha has been used to ease the severe response of withdrawal from opiate drugs.  A clinical study found that : "Taken long-term, it can prevent the loss of dopaminergic density in the nucleus procumbens, which usually happens with opiate withdrawal." 11,12
