Product Spotlight: Ashwagandha and KSM 66

July 03, 2020 5 min read

Most of us know that stress is a killer. When we fall into patterns of chronic stress and anxiety, we lose our ability to focus. Our productivity drops and our coping skills wane, making us even more stressed, and we suffer any number of physical stress-related symptoms such as problems with our digestion, raised blood pressure, heart or kidney function issues and broken sleep patterns(1). The stress spiral can feel endless.

If you struggle to find the time to meditate, get enough exercise, eat right, and do all of the otherthings touted on health, fitness and wellness blogs to reduce your stress, then you are not alone. Breaking the stress cycle is a real challenge. Sometimes you need just a little help to get back on track.

Perhaps it is time for some ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is not a magic pill that will take all your stress away. It is an herbal supplement known to improve overall health and wellness. Ashwagandha originated in India and has been part of traditional healing practices for thousands of years.  

Science has caught up with the ashwagandha plant and clinical trials show that extracts can significantly reduce anxiety and stress(2).This herb acts to reduce cortisol, which is the main stress hormone in the body, and provides relief of cortisol-induced symptoms(3). Ashwagandha also plays a role in improving memory, focus and reaction time (4,5).

Organic Ashwagandha

Physician’s Choice Organic Ashwagandha is a pure source of this powerful traditional healing herb that can help relieve your anxiety, elevate your mood, improve your focus and give you the energy you need to face whatever life is throwing at you. 

The most potent part of the ashwagandha plant used in traditional medicines is the root. While some supplements include leaves and other parts of the plant in their supplements, Physician’s Choice Ashwagandha supplements contain exclusively root extracts sourced from certified organic farms. This ensures the supplements contain the highest quality plant extracts with no pesticides or contaminants. 

Absorption of ashwagandha is key to getting great results. A supplement is really only as good as the amount your body can actually absorb. That’s why Physician’s Choice Ashwagandha products also contain the extract of black pepper.   

Organic black pepper extract improves the bioavailability of ashwagandha and other supplements it is paired with(6), meaning that it helps your body absorb the ashwagandha so that you get the full benefits of every dose.

What sets it apart?

Physician’s Choice Ashwagandha supplement is:

  • Made with the finest certified organic ashwagandha root 
  • Bioavailable because it includes organic black pepper extract to aid in absorption
  • Backed by clinical research

What’s in it?

Each capsule of Physician’s Choice Organic Ashwagandha contains 650 mg of certified organic ashwagandha root and 5 mg of organic black pepper extract. The recommended dose is three capsules per day or 1950 mg of ashwagandha root extract.

Is organic ashwagandha right for you?

If you are feeling overwhelmed, or finding yourself unable to focus and perform mental tasks well, then ashwagandha is definitely worth considering. Ashwagandha’s long history as a traditional medicine, and more recent clinical human trials have shown ashwagandha to be a safe and effective natural supplement with minimal side effects(4)

Physician’s Choice Organic Ashwagandha delivers a highly absorbable, extra-strength dose of this potent stress-reducing herb. Regular use can improve your mental focus and give you energy and stamina to deal with life’s stressful moments. You may also experience fewer stress-related food cravings and an increase in your ability to exercise through improved muscle recovery. This can be a boost to your wellness and weight loss goals. 

KSM-66 Ashwagandha

Not all ashwagandha products are created equal, and that is where Physician’s Choice KSM-66 Ashwagandha really stands out. KSM-66 is the most clinically researched ashwagandha extract ever created(7)

Like Physician’s Choice Organic Ashwagandha, KSM-66 Ashwagandha is made only from root extracts, which is the part of the plant used in traditional healing practices for thousands of years, but KSM-66 goes even further. It has the highest concentration of active ashwagandha plant compounds found in the market today, while still preserving the full spectrum of possible active ingredients in the root extract.

What does that mean? Instead of focusing on only one active ingredient (such as withanolides), KSM-66 ensures that all active components of the ashwagandha root remain in the final extract. The result is a standardized extract where withanolides are at 5 percentand all other components are still present.

Why is a full-spectrum extract important?

Many believe that the full benefits from ashwagandha come from the complex mix of plant chemicals found in the whole root and not from a single dominant plant component such as withanolides. If too much focus is placed on just one active ingredient, then other active components may be lost entirely or may become out of balance compared to the mix of active ingredients found in the natural root.

After years of research and 22 gold-standard clinical trials on humans, the resulting KSM-66 extract shows the most promise as ahighly effective supplement.

What sets it apart?

Physician’s Choice KSM-66 Ashwagandha supplement is:

  • Backed by clinical research
  • Standardized to include 5 percent withanolides while preserving the full spectrum of Ashwagandha root compounds
  • Bioavailable because it includes organic black pepper extract to aid in absorption

What’s in it?

Each capsule of Physician’s Choice KSM-66 Ashwagandha contains 500 mg of certified organic ashwagandha root extract that is standardized to contain 5 percent withanolides and 7.5 mg of organic black pepper extract to aid in absorption. The recommended dose is two capsules per day or 1000 mg of ashwagandha root extract. Each bottle provides a 30 day supply.

Is KSM-66 Ashwagandha right for you?

If you are suffering from anxiety, loss of focus, difficulty with memory and other signs of stress, then ashwagandha may be the right supplement for you. KSM-66 offers a standardized dose of certified organic ashwagandha root extract, with black pepper extract to boost its absorption.  

Taken daily, KSM-66 can improve your mood, reduce your anxiety, boost your memory and focus, improve muscle energy and recovery, reduce blood sugar levels and improve your sleep.
