Ashwagandha (Also Known as "Sleeping Berry" and "Indian Ginseng")
Ashwagandha extract is commonly referred to as "sleeping berry", due to its traditional use as a treatment for sleeping problems. The root, which is native to India, has also been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic recipes to promote vitality and fertility.
The name "Indian ginseng" hints at its balancing and invigorating properties, which are similar to those of other types of ginseng (e.g. Korean ginseng).
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract: The Highest Concentration of Full-Spectrum Withanolides Available Worldwide
In order to obtain a full-spectrum extract from the ashwagandha root in such a high concentration (5% withanolides—as confirmed by HPLC testing), the plants must be provided with optimal growing conditions. The Indian state of Rajasthan, where our ashwagandha is grown, offers an ideal environment for cultivating high-quality ashwagandha.
The best organically grown roots are selected to undergo the unique extraction process, which does not involve the use of milk, alcohol or chemical solvents. The result is a vegan extract which contains both the lipophilic and hydrophilic components of the raw root and thus the full spectrum of withanolides. Withanolides are a substance group of steroidal lactones that have a chemical structure similar to steroid hormones. Our ashwagandha root extract has been specially produced for us, and is absolutely free from cytotoxic withaferin A.
