Media about us:

You know, you buy a new product and can't wait for the first effects to work. And just as some preparations work immediately (e.g. pre-workouts), you have to wait up to several weeks for others to work.

And what is it like with ashwagandha? Are the online stories about immediate cutting or energy kick right after ingestion true, or an example of a placebo effect? Let me share with you what the scientific research says about this.

.

From this article you will learn:

  • When you will feel the effects of ashwagandha.
  • .
  • How to use ashwagandha to make it work.
  • .
  • Why you should use ashwagandha.
  • Why you should use ashwagandha.

When does ashwagandha start to work?

.

Ashwagandha begins to take effect after approximately4-12 weeks of daily consumption of 250 mg to 800 mg. Regular intake of ashwagandha after just4 weeks can reduce stress and tension, improve sleep quality, and boost energyand.

Vitanolides, the bioactive compounds responsible for ashwagandha's valuable properties need time to build up in the body and take effectand.

.
.

Vitanolides are compounds found in plants that exhibit interesting biological activity. They may have anticancer, antimicrobial, antiseptic and neuroprotective effects.

Does ashwagandha stimulate immediately?

.

No, ashwagandha does not stimulate immediately because it is not a stimulant like, for example, caffeineand. Stories about swallowing a tablet that "instantly stimulated" - or conversely, "instantly induced drowsiness" - are good examples of how one can be susceptible to suggestion.

Reading statements on the Internet, I get the impression that some people have been given the placebo effect from just holding the packet in their hands. Rest assured - ashwa will neither give you a kick nor give you a bang.

Check out the following.

This adaptogen can energise over time by reducing stress, improving sleep quality and reducing feelings of fatigueand. When you're sleepy, you're better able to cope with mental tension and you tense your muscles less - it's natural that you'll have more energy.

You won't feel it as a 'kick', but you'll have more desire to workout after work, take a friend out for a walk or run up to the tram so it doesn't run away from you.

How to take ashwagandha to make it work?

.

One tip: daily. Only systematic intake of ashwagandha will benefit your health and well-being. Once you decide to embark on an adventure with adaptogens such as ashwa, you must remember to be regular.

Set up a daily ritual for yourself, such as ashwagandha after breakfast or before bed. It doesn't matter whether you take ashwagandha in the morning or at night - adjust the time of day to suit your preferences.

Take ashwagandha in the morning or at night.

After 8-12 weeks, take a break. Why? Because there is no data on its chronic intake. Thanks to the work of researchers, we know that it is considered "probably safe" when taken daily for 3 monthsand.

How ... not to take ashwagandha?

.

If you want to throw money down the drain, not feel the effects and complain on the internet that it #doesn't work take ashwagandha irregularly and drink alcohol. Taking it every few days is pointless - you need to take it on a regular basis so it has time to settle into your body and work.

Regular consumption of alcohol reduces the absorption of nutrients and other compounds. It weakens immunity and increases the risk of many diseases. The worst choice is to drink alcohol close to the time of taking this adaptogen. Ashwagandha can negatively affect the liver and exacerbate the effects of alcohol.

Ideally, along with consuming ashwagandha you should implement some healthy ayurvedic principles into your life: sleep hygiene, relaxation, healthy eating and exercise.

Is ashwagandha addictive?

.

No, ashwagandha is not addictive and is safe for use in the daily portions recommended by the manufacturer (max 1000 mg for tablet extract and 3 g for root powder). This adaptogen contains no active ingredients that would cause physical or psychological dependence.

What does ashwagandha help with?

.

Ashwagandha (also known as Indian ginseng, sluggish vitania or sleeping sickness) is an adaptogen with many health benefitsand.

    .
  • Reduces tension, anxiety and stress. Ashwagandha relieves the negative effects of stress, has an anti-anxiety effect and lowers the 'stress hormone' cortisol .
