Benefits of Ashwagandha Extract

  • Relieves Stress and Anxiety

Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its stress-relieving properties. Several studies highlight this advantage, observing ashwagandha’s ability to decrease participants’ stress and anxiety levels significantly.

One particular study indicated that ashwagandha can benefit sleep quality as well—researchers confirmed participants slept much better with doses of the herb compared to placebo doses.

  • Lowers Blood Sugar and Fat

A couple of small clinical studies found ashwagandha to be helpful in reducing blood glucose levels and triglycerides (the most common type of fat in the blood). One study likened ashwagandha’s blood sugar-lowering effects to those of medications prescribed for type 2 diabetes.

  • Increases Muscle and Strength

Researchers continue to study ashwagandha’s efficacy in improving strength and muscle size. One study found participants experienced increased speed and strength. Another study observed an increase in muscle power, alongside a lower body fat percentage and reduced cholesterol levels when ashwagandha was consumed[8]. Some participants also experienced better sleep, but this study did not compare ashwagandha consumption against a placebo.

Ashwagandha treatments produced positive results in another study conducted solely with male participants[9]. Compared to the placebo group, men who received ashwagandha saw significant gains in muscle strength (measured using bench press and leg extension exercises) and muscle size in their arms and chests, as well as a significant reduction in body fat percentage and post-workout muscle damage.

  • Improves Sexual Function in Women

At least one clinical study indicates ashwagandha can benefit women experiencing sexual dysfunction. The administration of ashwagandha resulted in significant improvements in arousal, lubrication, orgasm and satisfaction, as self-reported by the participants. It also significantly improved the number of successful sexual encounters and improved metrics of distress around their sex lives and sexuality.

  • Boosts Fertility and Testosterone Levels in Men

Ashwagandha may also provide reproductive benefits for men. Administering ashwagandha to infertile men has shown to improve sperm quality significantly by rebalancing reproductive hormone levels. After one study, 14% of the male patients’ partners became pregnant.

Separately, in a stress-related ashwagandha study, researchers found the herb increased testosterone levels in male but not female participants. Another study testing ashwagandha’s effect on muscle strength in men also measured a significant increase in testosterone.

  • Sharpens Focus and Memory

Ashwagandha may help improve cognition, memory and the ability to perform motor responses after instruction. Small studies have found that, compared to a placebo, ashwagandha significantly improved participants’ reaction times during cognition and psychomotor tests (which measure the ability to respond to instructions and perform an indicated action).

One study even found that ashwagandha significantly improved participants’ attention spans, as well as their immediate and general memory across a variety of tests.

KSM-66 Ashwagandha

Not all ashwagandha supplements are created equal and when it comes to choosing the best ashwagandha, KSM-66 really is the gold standard.

It is derived using a unique extraction process which harnesses a full spectrum extract from just the ashwagandha root – not the leaves. The result is an ashwagandha extract which has the highest quality and best bioavailability.

Clinical studies have consistently shown that KSM-66 ashwagandha has the highest concentration of all major root-only extracts available on the market. These studies have also provided further evidence to support the use of ashwagandha for stress relief, enhanced cognitive function, physical performance and sexual function.

The effectiveness of KSM-66 ashwagandha has been verified in 22 human clinical trials. These trials all comply with the gold standards of research and are placebo-controlled, double-blind and randomised.

Together with good manufacturing processes which use no solvents or added active ingredients, KSM-66 is the most natural, potent and effective formulation of ashwagandha root.
