Scientists have discovered that the Indian herb ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension. Ashwagandha has been the subject of animal studies and is believed to confer improvements in well-being and a healthy outlook in humans.
In a large clinical trial, ashwagandha reduced levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26% while maintaining already normal blood sugar levels and lipid profiles. Subjects who took the standardized ashwagandha extract reported improvements in energy, sleep and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue. Additional research suggests that ashwagandha confers neuroprotection by supporting the regeneration of axons and dendrites, nerve cell components that support brain and nervous system function.
The suggested daily dose provides 250 mg of standardized, patented, non-stimulating Sensoril Ashwagandha Extract.

Very helpful in dealing with extreme stress
Very helpful in dealing with extreme stress
I was told this plant strengthens stress hormones; translated it means "strength of a horse." I was a little skeptical, but having experienced a major life transition and associated depression/anxiety, the stress I was under made me willing to try anything. I've always been sensitive with stressful situations, and I have to say I am coping much better than I was before taking this. I should note I've found this brand superior to other brands (brands also sold on this site!). Truth be told despite my current stress I feel like I'm standing taller and ready to tackle anything. Really not sure if it's placebo or something else, but I'm ordering 2 more bottles...
I've been taking this because of something I read by Dr. Andrew Weil, who's published many books on the subject of natural health and integrative medicine. I struggle with anxiety, and some memory loss resulting from the xanax i was taking when initially diagnosed. The effects are subtle and do take some time to become apparent with daily use, but I can tell something positive is happening. I take this along with Bacopa between meals twice a day, both are said to alleviate stress and improve memory. I feel no sedation and have no side effects. I will continue to take both.
this product is a godsend.

got this because price was little lower than some but at time did not thing about looking at dosage amount this one capsule is 125 mg . I was taking 400 mg with ones I took before so had to take more than one capsule with this so did not save much money but dosage amount only issue other than that seems like quality was as good as others
More alert, better sleep!

This product was recommended to me for sleep improvement, I have struggled with poor sleep/wakefulness and then low energy levels during the day for many years. I have been taking this for a week now on an empty stomach in the morning and before dinner and since taking it I have slept for longer without constantly waking up. I have re-ordered and maybe it's too soon to tell...but this seems to be helping.

Within less than 10 days of beginning this product, I felt a significantly increased sense of well-being, cognitive stamina, more restful sleep, and significantly decreased aching in my lower back and left shoulder injuries. There is a lot of literature to back this product. This will become part of my permanent supplement regimen from here forth. Highly recommended. AA+++
