Ashwagandha is a "royal herb" within Ayurvedic medicine because it's used to rejuvenate so many different systems of the body: the nervous system and brain, the immune system, the reproductive system, the endocrinal system, and energy-production. 

Product Notes:

This particular type of Ashwagandha extraction (KSM-66) is proving to be the best adaptogen type on the Western market today, as judged both by its production technique and by the human clinical studies demonstrating its efficacy.

KSM-66 Ashwagandha has been shown to be able to improve mood and reduce stress and anxiety, without inducing daytime drowsiness (in fact, it can increase energy and stamina); increase testosterone levels in males, and improve sexual functioning and arousal in both men and women; increase muscle size and strength; speed up recovery times; and even improve cognition and memory in some populations.

Ashwagandha is a type of shrub which grows in many parts of South Asia that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for a wide variety of purposes, using different parts of the plant. The herb produced by turning its roots into a powder is the most frequently used type of Ayurvedic medicine, and is classified as the best type of "rasayana" in Ayurveda: as an elixir or tonic to increase health, vitality, and longevity. In Western medicine, it is considered an adaptogen: a nontoxic medication that normalizes physiological functions which have been disturbed by chronic stress by correcting imbalances in the neuroendocrine and immune systems.

KSM66 is made from organic ashwagandha, using only the roots of the plant, which have the most effective forms of the active ingredients for these purposes, and the least amount of a potentially toxic component. It is standardized to contain at least 5% withanolides, the highest amount of any root-only extract, and that is measured by HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography), a far more accurate method than many types use.

This also ensures that a full spectrum of the withanolides are represented in the same ratio that they appear in the original plant, because there are a number of different types of withanolides and they may have synergistic effects. Finally, no alcohol or synthetic solvents that could impair the active ingredients are used in manufacturing. Only water is used in the extraction process.
