Ashwagandha grows throughout India, the Middle East, and in parts of Africa. It contains steroidal lactones known as withanolides, which have been shown, through scientific studies, to be responsible for the health benefits of the plant.
Ashwagandha acts as an adaptogen, helping to maintain the body’s healthy response to physiological and psychological stress. Adaptogens also help reduce fatigue and improve energy.
Standardized Ashwagandha Extract 500 mg may be a useful dietary supplement for those who want to support a more balanced, healthier response to stress.
As a dietary supplement, adults take one vegetarian capsule daily or as directed by a healthcare professional.
