Ashwagandha, 650 mg 60 capsules
- May reduce stress and anxiety*
- Supports memory and cognitive function*
- Promotes overall health and longevity*
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng, has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to boost memory and improve cognition.* The root in particular is rich in compounds that have neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant qualities.* When taken in extract form, ashwagandha has a wide range of pharmacologic properties, mostly due to the presence of withanolides, which are a group of naturally occurring steroids.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, meaning it helps the body manage stress by building up a resilience to external stressors over time for long-term wellness.*
Withanolides inhibit multiple inflammatory pathways by reducing certain inflammatory proteins and reducing inflammatory markers.* Coupled with properties such as relieving perimenopause symptoms in women and increasing testosterone levels in men, ashwagandha is a multipurpose supplement for aging bodies.*

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the capsule size?
A: Capsule size 00.
Q: What type of capsule does this product come in?
A: This comes in a gelatin capsule. The gelatin is derived from bovine hide (beef skin).
Q: Why does this product contain rice flour?
A: We use rice flour as a filling agent for some products whose active ingredients do not fill the entire capsule. Leaving the capsule unfilled is not aesthetically pleasing and would cause many complaints.
Q: Why is there a milk allergen warning on the label?
A: KSM-66® is a branded ashwagandha root extract. It is produced by a proprietary extraction process in which the roots are pre-treated with milk. The use of milk during pre-treatment helps to retain the active compounds, making the final extract full-spectrum with high-potency. Because the ashwagandha raw material uses milk in the production process, the finished product must also carry a milk allergen warning on the label.
Q: Dr. Clark did not like to use extracts in her products. Why does this product contain an extract?
A: Dr. Clark did not like extracts that were produced using chemical solvents. KMS-66® ashwagandha was extracted using green chemistry principles, meaning no alcohol or other chemical solvent was used in the extraction process.
