Life Extension Optimized Ashwagandha Extract -- 60 Vegetarian Capsules
This product is a very pure but not too strong ashwagandha. It is one of the few meant to be taken on an empty stomach which is great if you have problems waking up in the middle of the night, or even an hour or two before your alarm. I find it to be relaxing and a good complement to a different high quality ashwagandha that is meant to be taken with meals, so you are never without your ashwagandha.

This seems to be working to better my mood. I take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with my enzymes.

Life Extension Optimized Ashwagandha Extract Description
- Enhances Mental Energy and Concentration
Scientists have discovered that the Indian herb ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension. Ashwagandha has been shown to confer improvements in well-being and a healthy outlook.
In a large clinical trial, ashwagandha reduced levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26% while maintaining already normal blood sugar levels and lipid profiles. Subjects who took the standardized ashwagandha extract reported improvements in energy, sleep and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue. Additional research suggests that ashwagandha confers neuroprotection by supporting the regeneration of axons and dendrites, nerve cell components that support brain and nervous system function.
The suggested daily dose provides 250 mg standardized, patented, non-stimulating Sensoril® Ashwagandha Extract.
