3 Tips to Choose the Right Ashwagandha Supplier

What is an ashwagandha extract?

Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs used in Ayurveda. Its botanical name is Withania somnifera, and also known by several other names like Indian ginseng and winter cherry. It is a traditional form of alternative medicine based on Indian principles of natural healing. Ashwagandha is known as an evergreen shrub that grows in Asia and Africa and is typically used for stress. Extracts or powder from the plant’s roots or leaves is used for several conditions, including anxiety and fertility issues.

Tips for buying an Ashwagandha Extract at the right time

1. Ensure that you assess the concentration of cytotoxic Withaferin A.

Note that not all withanolides are beneficial. Withaferin A is one cytotoxic withanolide, as has been established in several scientific studies. So, it is abominable to have Withaferin A in an ashwagandha extract when the intended use is for standard applications like building anti-stress ability, energy, cognition, and immunity.

2. Ensure that the clinical studies are published in high-quality, high-credibility outlets.

There are some ashwagandha makers with clinical trials that are not published in journals. So, it is important to make sure they are published in high quality and jounals with high credibility. Also, some ashwagandha makers’ clinical studies try to indicate the efficacy of their ashwagandha by showing improvement in clinically compromised populations or otherwise less than totally healthy populations.

3. Ensure your ashwagandha extract is a full-spectrum extract.

Botanicals are difficult substances with many constituents in them. A “full-spectrum” extract is an extract that maintains the balance of the several constituents as in the original herb, without over-representing any one constituent.
