For over four centuries‚ ashwagandha has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. This herb‚ which is part of the pepper family‚ may have adaptogenic properties. This is largely due to substances called withanolides.
Ashwagandha by Pure Encapsulations provides this herbal ingredient in a convenient vegetable capsule. One capsule provides 500 milligrams of ashwagandha root extract‚ which has been standardized to ensure that 2.5% is withanolide content. It may help support joint comfort: if you can move more easily‚ you'll be more active‚ which can relieve stress and support overall health. Withania somnifera may also promote immunity‚ making it less likely that you'll get sick. It also supports thyroid health‚ as well as your body's ability to metabolize glucose and dietary fats.
In addition‚ this supplement may have a positive impact on your mental outlook. During periods of occasional stress‚ ashwagandha can promote relaxation and a clear mind. It can also work to boost cognitive functioning and memory; for example‚ this extract may provide protection to your nerves through the scavenging of potentially harmful free radicals hat may attack cells.
Take one capsule of Pure Encapsulations' Ashwagandha daily; it can be used either with or between meals. Each 60-capsule bottle should last for about two months at the recommended dosage. Don't take this supplement if you're currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
