The Amazing Root Extract That Eases Stress, Promotes Mental Well-Being, Heightens Longevity & Boosts Vitality
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a potent adaptogenic herb from India that has been used throughout the centuries for its health-enhancing properties, and is still extensively used throughout the world to help people live healthier lives. Adaptogens are non-toxic plants used as support to the stress response system. Utilizing KSM-66®, the most clinically studied, highest quality Ashwagandha extract on the market, ASHWAMEND PLUS™ is the most pure, potent and bioavailable form of the herb available to consumers.
Why ASHWAMEND PLUS™?
KSM-66® Ashwagandha has more than 22 ‘Gold Standard’ human clinical trials with major academic and research institutes. These clinical studies back its various health benefits, which include its ability to enhance relaxation and stress resistance, promote concentration, memory, endurance, and strength, and support thyroid and hormone balancing, as well as increase telomere activity (they are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes).
While many people know about the effects of stress and anxiety on mental health, fewer people are aware of the physical side effects, which can include lack of energy, sleep disorders, digestive issues and even weight control!
KSM-66® Ashwagandha is produced using an innovative extraction process, based on “Green-Chemistry” principles, without using alcohol or any other chemical solvents,
- Organically grown
- Water extracted – No chemical solvents
- Water extracted – No chemical solvents
- Free from adulteration
- Highly bioavailable
- Naturally absorbed
Ashwagandha’s Health Benefits: Eases Stress and Anxiety
Cortisol is a stress hormone that triggers our "fight or flight" response, and high levels of cortisol signal your body to store fat! No matter how good our diet and how often we exercise, managing our daily stress and anxiety is critical to achieving a healthy weight, positive mood and a balanced lifestyle.
Ashwagandha's history can be traced back to around 6,000 BCE, and it was considered a powerful stress reliever. KSM-66® is the most clinically studied form of Ashwagandha in the world, which is combined with BioPerine® in a blend to maximize absorption and bioavailability.
KSM-66® Ashwagandha has 22 ‘Gold Standard’ Human Clinical Studies
KSM-66® is an Ashwagandha extract made by Ixoreal Biomed, a remarkable product that took 14 years of R&D to develop and refine, and has been evaluated in 22 ‘Gold Standard’, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials with incredible results:
79.3% reduction in severe depression
A study published in the Journal of Psychological Medicine in 2012 showed that Ashwagandha reduced over-excitation of neurons, which is an important factor for producing calmness, reducing stress and increasing focus, mental well-being and self-control.
167% increase in sperm count
A study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2013 showed that Ashwagandha helped to stimulate the hypothalamus gland, which in turn can stimulate the anterior pituitary gland to produce FSH and LH that are important factors to stimulate the testes to produce testosterone.
18.6% increase in T3 thyroid levels by week four and 41.5% by eight weeks
A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2017 showed that serum T3 levels increased by 18.6% at 4 weeks and 41.5% at 8 weeks after Ashwagandha supplementation
9.3% increase in T4 thyroid levels by week four and 19.6% by week eight
A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2017 showed that serum T4 levels increased by 9.3% at 4 weeks and 19.6% at 8 weeks after Ashwagandha supplementation.
45% increase in telomerase activity
Telomere/telomerase maintenance in humans is associated with a longer lifespan and delay in the effects of aging. Ashwagandha studies showed an increase of telomerase activity, with the highest enhancement at more than 40%.
27.9% reduction in mean serum cortisol levels
Stress is often accompanied by an increase in serum cortisol level. A study published in the Journal of Psychological Medicine in 2012 showed that Ashwagandha, an adaptogen, can promote homeostasis, regulate hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function and reduce serum cortisol level.
4.91% increase in VO2 Max energy
Improving VO2 Max (or the amount of oxygen the body can use during exercise) supports muscle efficiency and performance. In a study, Ashwagandha enhanced both cardiorespiratory endurance and quality of life in healthy, athletic adults. VO2 Max increased by 4.91% at 8 weeks, and by 5.67% at 12 weeks.
3.0% reduction in body weight
A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine in 2016 showed that Ashwagandha helped to reduce the desire or cravings for food, imparted a positive impact on eating behavior, and normalized hunger. Ashwagandha supplementation resulted in a 3.0% and 2.9% reduction in body weight and BMI respectively.
