Ashwagandha, which means “horse smell”, is a small evergreen shrub that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Ashwagandha is used as a general tonic and “adaptogen”, helping the body adapt to stress and support immune function. In 2009, the clinical trial of Cooley et al. showed that Ashwagandha had a greater clinical benefit than psychotherapy in mental health (anxiety level), concentration, fatigue, social functioning, vitality, and overall quality of life. NOW® Ashwagandha Extract 400 mg is a 15:1 concentrated extract delivered in an easy to swallow veg capsule that is suitable for vegan / vegetarians.
