Certified organic Ashwagandha) (Withania somnifera [Root] Extract) Standardized to minimum 5% total Withanolides
Ashwagandha is a small shrub that grows traditionally in India. The root has been used for treatment for 3000 years in many cultures. There have been extensive research efforts many published in peer review journals that have documented the potential beneficial effects of ashwagandha in human consumption.
Ashwagandha is considered an “adaptogen.” Adaptogens are considered compounds that help our ability to adapt to our environment and reduce the negative impact of “stress” without producing harm. Ashwagandha has been studied to have effects including anti-anxiety, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, apoptotic (regulation of cell death), and neurotransmitter effects. It has been documented to have positive effects on female sexual responses and positive impact on the immune system. The active ingredients of the plant are withanolides and the root also contains Withaferin A, which can act to reduce positive effects. The Ashwagandha used in StartDetoxing is the best currently globally available “whole” extract from the root, (not leaves) and with low Withaferin A concentration.
Reducing stress alone has been documented in 100s of research studies to reduce our risk of cardiovascular disease, inflammation, response to autoimmune disease, and potentially reduce the risk of cancer. Stress reduction improves our general ability to digest, metabolize, and eliminate toxins, and increases our general sense of well-being, libido, and wellness. It has been stated it also helps to improve learning performance, concentration, and mental alertness. It supported a marked improvement in maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) in healthy athletic adults, by helping to maintain balanced energy levels for physical performance and endurance.
Ashwagandha Helps to encourage desire, vigor, and performance. Studies support a measurable improvement in sexual function among the female subjects. Promotes relaxation without drowsiness and aids in the quality of sleep. In addition, it helps to enhance overall body composition when used as part of a healthy diet and exercise program as it has been shown to assist in controlling stress-related food cravings.
