Ashwagandha - The Ayurvedic Treasure
In ancient India, Ashwagandha was most prominent as a popular herb in the Ayurvedic medical tradition. Today it attracts scientific study thanks to its adaptogenic qualities and health benefits.
Adaptogens are active compounds found in certain plants that can help your body respond to daily stress and return to its natural balance (homeostasis).
Ashwagandha’s main gifts are its withanolides, which we capture carefully by only using root extract. This respects the historical Ayurvedic practices and follows scientific evidence that the roots are the safest source of these valuable nutrients.
The Prominent Difference
Our Ashwagandha has 2.5% withanolide content
- Withanolides are Ashwagandha's main active compound. 2.5% is the clinically researched level that demonstrates measurable human health benefits.
We only use the root system
- Ashwagandha roots hold the beneficial active compounds you want, and they are safe for long-term use.
We test our Ashwagandha using High-performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
- HPLC is the most accurate method for testing Ashwagandha potency available. It is the only way to confirm withanolide content and ensure that only the roots are present.
Why Just the Roots?
Ashwagandha leaves also contain withanolides, but one form (withaferin A) found in the leaves can be harmful if taken long-term. It can suppress immune system response, threatening your health. That is why our Ashwagandha is only the root extract.
Leaves are cheaper to harvest than roots and boost overall withanolide content, so many supplement companies take advantage of the shortcut. This is a mistake.
We share our products with our friends and families. We know the science. We will not take any shortcut that puts their health or yours at risk.
