What is ashwagandha 
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a shrub from the nightshade family originating from India and cultivated there on a large scale. Ashwagandha root, similarly to ginseng, has an active effect. That is why the plant is sometimes also called Indian ginseng. The name aswagandha means "horse scent" and comes from the characteristic horsey smell that characterizes the fresh root of the plant. Ashwagandha extract is a source of bioactive compounds with healing properties, called withanolides, and glycowithanolides with adaptogenic properties. In addition, ashwagandha also contains significant amounts of alkaloids, phytosterols and is a rich source of iron.

How does ashwagandha work?
Ashwagandha is classified as an adaptogen, a group of plant-based substances that increase resistance to stress and maintain the proper balance of the body. Like other adaptogens, it increases the body's resistance to stressors, supporting the nervous and immune systems. In addition to its adaptogenic properties, ashwagandha has a positive effect on the body in many areas of its functioning, including the mind - improving mental well-being and mental activity, as well as the circulatory and respiratory systems. In addition to having a positive effect on your mental condition, it also adds vitality, positively influencing physical endurance and sexual function. This synergistic effect of ashwagandha on the mind and body makes the effect of this wonderful plant felt. Many of these extraordinary properties of ashwagandha have been known for a long time, which is why its root has been used in ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.

Why KSM-66?
KSM-66 Ashwagandha is a branded extract produced by a family-owned Indian company that has been specializing in the production of ashwaganda and promoting its health-promoting properties for years. The extract is produced in India, which is the natural habitat of this plant, and only the root of Withania somnifera from certified, organic crops is used for its production. This guarantees the presence of a full spectrum of active ingredients specific to this part of the plant. Extraction is carried out using the "green chemistry" process, i.e. without the use of alcohol or other chemical solvents. Thanks to this, the consumer receives a product of the highest quality, characterized by high biological activity and containing no residues of any harmful organic solvents or other chemical pollutants.

Why only the root?
Due to the much lower price of leaves, which can be up to 1/15 of the price of roots, some producers use leaf admixtures in the extracts they produce. The original use of the leaves, however, was for topical skin treatments for conditions such as burns or boils, rather than for consumption. For thousands of years, the root has been a part of the plant used in traditional medicine for consumption to obtain adaptogenic benefits. The use of the root also has a much better scientific basis than the use of the leaves - in terms of clinical evidence and publications:
  • The vast majority of published clinical studies were conducted using root extract rather than leaf extract,
  • Monographs of the British, American and Indian pharmacopoeias as well as WHO publications refer only to the root of Withania somnifera as a plant raw material with medicinal properties. The leaf is not even mentioned for therapeutic use in any of them
  • The consumption of ashwagandha roots was much greater, with a greater possibility of observing its safety, than the consumption of leaves
  • Regulators in some European countries only allow the root of the plant, not the leaves

Due to the above reasons, only the root of the Withania somnifera plant is used to produce the KSM-66 Ashwagandha extract, which ensures the best effect and safe use of our product.
