I would definitely recommend this supplement/this vendor for your supplement needs! I'm on probably my 5th bottle of this specific ashwagandha. What drew me to this one in particular is that it's only 1 x per day and that it has black pepper. Most other ashwagandha supplements require 3 x per day and they do not have the activator ingredient, black pepper, for added efficacy. Supplements are an unregulated category and you have to be *extremely* careful to purchase from reputable companies. I made the mistake of purchasing an inferior saffron supplement from an Amazon vendor and had months of gut issues that required multiple trips to the doctor and essentially 3 months of sleep deprivation due to the pain I experienced in the middle of the night from my gut.
I'm now very careful to only purchase supplements that I trust and Naturelo is on the list. Ashwagandha is a great adaptogen and has been particularly helpful with my stress levels. You could take 2 if you'd like, but again, supplements need to be taken in the correct dosage i.e. if you take too much borage oil (another adaptogen) you could have a seizure. So always make sure you exercise caution and moderation when introducing any supplements!
One capsule, which is the serving size, contains 600 mg of ashwagandha root. It is commonly recommended to take between 1 to 6 grams of the root per day, and this supplement has just over half of the lowest amount. I see this as a benefit, as I would be concerned about upset stomach otherwise. If I wanted a higher amount, I would consider taking another capsule. This supplement contains black pepper extract, which is supposed to help with the absorption of ashwagandha. As I've come to expect from the Naturelo brand, this supplement does not contain GMO's, and it is vegan-friendly. I have taken this for a few days. While it doesn't give me superpowers, I am not the usual ball of constant nervous energy. I actually get sleepy towards the evening, which is different for me. Over time, there may be additional benefits, and for now, I'm happy with it.
I've been using them for a few weeks now. I take it 2 times daily, and appreciate the vegan product to take instead of synthetic products. It is easy to swallow, and no after taste. I can say I have had no adverse effects from taking It so far. It is the first vegan option I have taken for Ashwagandha, and it is a welcome addition to my daily intake. I recommend this vitamin. Makes me feel great. I will update if I need too.
I suffer from social anxiety, stress, and down moods often and this product has turned that into much less often to none. I’m not saying it turned me into Chad or anything but I feel more social and less stressed out about little or big things since starting this supplement!
My doctor would not allow me to take Xanax, and I tried this product on the advice of a family member. It takes a day or two to work, but 100% lowers your anxiety level. It's once a day, and then as needed, and I've been taking it before bedtime (key anxiety time) and in the morning to get through work. I have noticed a good bit of change in how I feel. If you have anxiety - this is definitely worth a try.
This product seemed to relieve my depression with in the first couple days. I felt less stressed & a better outlook. I’ve recommended it to my daughters that are working & Teaching their children at home.
