Physician's Choice Ashwagandha - Ayuerveda Supplement

Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera), is most commonly known for its ability to help reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance stamina.* This herb is an Ayurvedic supplement that has been used in India for thousands of years.

The popularity of Ashwagandha has seen rapid growth in the past few years, due in large part to new clinical research and studies documenting the plants' many benefits. 

Ashwagandha is now the most widely researched adaptogenic herb on the planet. Clinical trials, research, and over 2500 years of Ayurveda tradition have proven without a doubt that this powerful herb has real benefits.

To get those benefits, the type, and form of ashwagandha you take makes a big difference. 

No Stems, Leaves or Fillers

The most potent part of the Ashwagandha plant is the root. In traditional applications, the root is the only part of the plant that is used orally.

Leaves are traditionally considered somewhat toxic. For that reason, the National Institute of Ayurveda and the Indian Ministry of Health do not allow leaves or stems in ashwagandha products used in Ayurvedic and Indian Pharamcopoeia.

With ashwagandha's rise in popularity we have seen a decline in quality among many manufacturers who are using leaves, stems, and other cheap fillers to cut costs.

We don't ignore decades of tradition and best practices (even though we could save a lot of money if we did). That's why our ashwagandha supplement contains no stems, leaves or fillers. 

Our Ashwagandha is made with 100% USDA certified organic ashwagandha root powder. No leaves, no stems, no fillers. Just pure potent ashwagandha root, the way its been used in India for over 2500 years.

Farm-Grown Quality

Sunshine, quality soils, and tender loving care makes for healthy, potent plants. We work with one trusted ashwagandha farmer who grows, harvests, dries, and processes the plants that go into our products.

Each ashwagandha plant begins as a non-GMO seed, and it grows on a farm that has been certified organic. That means our plants are not exposed to pesticides, antibiotics, and other harmful elements as they grow.

Plants retain the elements they are exposed to during the growing cycle. Ensuring that our plants grow in organic environments means ensuring that our products don't come with chemicals that could cause you harm.

Balanced, Powerful Doses

Ashwagandha has been used for more than 2,500 years. As a result, there are plenty of studies available about potency, uptake, and bio-availability.

Traditionally the dosage's used in Ayurvedic medicine are 1g to 2g of the root (1000 to 2000mgs) taken up to 3 times daily. Over the years the ashwagandha extraction process has improved and today's ashwagandha is more potent.

Our ashwagandha contains 1.95 grams (1950mgs) of pure organic ashwagandha root, we used this dosing because the overwhelming studies and scientific journals show ashwagandha root powder is most effective when taken at 1500-2000mgs range.

We also rely on our medical team to tell us if other ingredients can help with bio-availability or make our ashwagandha more potent. That's why we have added 15mgs of black pepper extract to our product. Our team points to studies that demonstrate pepper's ability to help with faster, more effective absorption.

We offer the highest potency available, at 1950mg packed in 90 veggie capsules.

Quality manufacturing processes

Our Ashwaghanda is made in our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, located in Vancouver, Washington. Our plant is organic certified, meaning that nothing that happens within our facility violates organic edicts.

We test our ashwaghanda at multiple points during the manufacturing process. That testing is performed by qualified scientists and technicians using advanced techniques, ensuring that our product is both pure and potent.

Each stage of product journey is documented and verified from harvesting to packaging, guaranteeing the safest, most effective product possible. We use raw material barcode labeling to help us meet allergen acceptance criteria.

Ashwangandha is a dietary supplement that restores balance throughout the body, improves mood, and reduces stress levels, and more. Ashwagandha is an herb that is referred to as an adaptogen, due to its ability to rejuvenate various systems in the body. In particular, it enhances the activity of the immune, nervous, reproductive, and hormonal systems [1]. This herb also has antioxidant, antidepressant, anti-anxiety, anti-bacterial, antifungal, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, cardio-protective, thyroid stimulating, and cognitive boosting properties [1-4].

In addition, consuming ashwagandha regularly is linked to enhanced concentration, social functioning, mental health, and vitality [2]. Furthermore, supplementation with ashwagandha is associated with less stress and lower levels of the stress hormone known as cortisol [1]. This means that taking this herb helps people become more resistant to stress and improves quality of life.

The benefits of Ashwagandha supplementation have even been compared to that of diuretic (urine-increasing), hypoglycemic (glucose-lowering), and hypocholesterolemic (cholesterol-lowering) medication, in that increased sodium in the urine as well as lower levels of blood glucose, triglycerides, and cholesterol are observed when this herb is taken consistently [5]. Additional benefits include [6]:

  • Increased longevity
  • Enhanced stamina
  • Increased energy levels
  • Restored homeostasis (balance)
  • The disruption of premature aging
  • Heightened resistance to adverse environmental factors

The active compounds in ashwagandha that confer these health benefits are called withanolides, and one particular form even protects cells from cancer-induced damage and slows tumor growth [7]. In men, ashwagandha supplementation boosts the levels of testosterone, vitamins A, C, and E, and antioxidant enzymes in the blood, which improves semen mobility and quality in men struggling with infertility [8].

For both men and women who are physically active, clinical studies show that taking ashwagandha for 8 weeks leads to enhanced muscle strength, greater muscle mass (size), less exercise-induced muscle damage, and significant decreases in the percentage of body fat [9, 10]. This means that ashwagandha is an especially versatile herb that dramatically boosts overall health.

The second active ingredient in this supplement is black pepper, also known as piperine. This powerful mineral boosts the body’s absorption of nutrients by increasing the speed at which nutrients move through the digestive tract [11]. Black pepper also helps the gastrointestinal tract absorb nutrients faster by enhancing intestinal secretions, the activity of digestive enzymes, and the health of good bacteria in the gut. In addition, it prevents the liver from quickly breaking down nutrients, thereby enhancing their transport to different parts of the body. For example, the levels of selenium, vitamins B6, and C in the body dramatically increase when black pepper is regularly consumed. This process also helps boost metabolism, which subsequently improves weight control.

In addition, consuming black pepper regularly targets joint pain, muscle pain, heart problems, bronchitis, inflammation, and age-related cognitive issues [12-18]. These health benefits are linked to the active component in black pepper called bioperine, and consuming inadequate amounts of this compound may lead to fatigue, joint pain, and even a stroke in some cases. Therefore, black pepper is an essential mineral that supports various processes.
