As many of our customers know, Ashwagandha is not only the cornerstone of Tranquilene’s stress-fighting formula, it is also one of the principal herbal remedies of the Eastern medical tradition of Ayurveda. Literally translated in Indian to “the smell of a horse” Ashwagandha’s vitality-boosting effects are as potent as its heady aroma (which is why it is easiest to take in a capsule!).
The Benefits of KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract
Traditionally, Ayurvedic doctors would give Ashwagandha to patients suffering from stress and anxiety, as well as, to rejuvenate them from low-energy and low-mood states. But now that western scientists are more focused on this amazing herb, many more fantastic benefits have come to light.
The makers of KSM-66 have conducted a full range of double-blind research studies on their proprietary extract and found the following results in patients tested:
- 71.6% reduction in total Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS)
- Significant increases in sports performance
- Improvements to memory and brain processing
- Improvements to immune function
And there is so much more! We love KSM-66 Ashwagandha so much, in fact, that we’ve launched a support product containing only a blend of KSM-66 and raw ashwagandha root powder: Ayurvedic Ashwagandha 1000. This is product is a perfect way to amplify the benefits of Tranquilene later in the day, or as a simpler, more affordable way to explore all that Ashwagandha has to offer.
How Does Ashwagandha Work?
The great thing about western science finally taking herbal traditions seriously, is that we are learning more about the exact ways in which herbs like ashwagandha affect our bodies.
This very special herb has a number of direct chemical impacts on the body. Research has shown it to increase the activity of the neurotransmitter, GABA, in the brain. GABA, to put it very simply, works to reduce the over-excitation of neurons. It also is shown to to reduce serum cortisol levels in the brain, which are known to spike when you experience episodes of anxiety.
To help your immune system, Ashwagandha is shown to increase production of immune-protecting T cells. And its antioxidant properties make it great at neutralizing free radicals in the body.
Memory and concentration also show improvements with Ashwagandha supplementation. Research demonstrates that it can facilitate choline production in the body, which in turn influences key memory processes. Choline also helps build the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which is involved in brain signal processing and memory.
These effects actually make Ayurvedic Ashwagandha 1000 a great complement to Focusene too, by the way!
For mental health in general, it is hard to find a more useful herbal remedy, and you won’t find a better extract than KSM-66. We hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy the benefits of Tranquilene and, if you haven’t, you use this recent advancement as encouragement to give it a try and start finding that calmer inner you.
