Ashwagandha KSM-66®

Ashwagandha, also known as Withania Somnifera, is a root herb commonly used worldwide for its health benefits.

The active compounds found in Ashwagandha, including alkaloids, flavonoids, and steroidal lactones, are known as withanolides. Withanolides, in particular, are considered the primary active compounds in Ashwagandha and have been extensively studied in scientific research.

These active compounds in Ashwagandha have demonstrated their ability to reduce symptoms of stress, mild anxiety, and cognitive fatigue in adults. Additionally, they enhance cognitive performance, maintain general mental well-being, and promote the body's adaptation to stress.

Mindlift contains KSM-66®, an award-winning, full-spectrum Ashwagandha extract standardized to contain more than 5% withanolides, the highest amount available worldwide.

KSM-66® is produced using 'green' chemistry, a unique processing technology that doesn't involve alcohol or synthetic solvents.
