Frequently Asked Questions

What is the active ingredient(s) in Ashwagandha Gold®?
The active ingredients in Ashwagandha Gold® are a group of flavonoids called withanolides, which help support the body's ability to manage stress and promote relaxation.

Does Ashwagandha Gold® contain anything other than the active ingredients?
Ashwagandha Gold® does not contain anything other than the active ingredients.

How is the extract used in Ashwagandha Gold® different from/superior to other Ashwagandha extracts?
There is some confusion regarding the claims made about the different Ashwagandha extracts by companies using these extracts in their products. In our humble opinion, KSM-66® is a qualitatively superior extract across multiple markers of safety, efficacy, and overall quality:

  • The active ingredient in Ashwagandha, withanolides, is sourced from root alone in the KSM-66® extract whereas these active constituents are sourced from both root and leaf in other extracts, which goes against established Ayurvedic practices
  • Some companies use leaves of Ashwagandha in their extracts to boost the total amount of withanolides, but Ayurveda cautions that the leaf-extract be used only for occasional external, topical use. On the other hand, the root-only extract (as used in KSM-66®) is emphasized when the objective is to attain overall systemic strengthening of the mind and body
  • The vast majority of clinical trials documented in PubMed use root-based extracts. Indeed, the only Ashwagandha extracts listed in the Indian Pharmacopeia, the British Pharmacopeia and the U.S. Pharmacopeia, are all drawn exclusively from roots
  • Not all withanolides are beneficial. There are good withanolides and not-so-good withanolides. Withaferin A is one withanolide which is cytotoxic, as has been established in multiple scientific studies. Some Ashwagandha extracts have high levels of withaferin A because the manufacturers use Ashwagandha leaves. While adding leaves increases total withanolide content, the increase, unfortunately, comes from less beneficial withanolides
  • KSM-66® is the only full-spectrum, organic extract of Ashwagandha standardized to 5% withanolides from root alone
  • KSM-66® is the only Ashwagandha extract to receive the prestigious "Best New Ingredient" award for its high content of withanolides extracted from root alone using a patented process that preserves the natural ratio of all the other beneficial compounds in Ashwagandha responsible for its anti-stress and relaxation properties

Is Ashwagandha Gold® free of allergens and non-GMO?
While Ashwagandha Gold® is verified free of corn, egg, gluten, peanut, shellfish, and soy allergens. It does contain a milk derivative (lactic acid). Ashwagandha Gold® is verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project™.

Is Ashwagandha Gold® suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Ashwagandha Gold® is suitable for vegetarians, but NOT for vegans because it contains a milk derivative (lactic acid).

How long do I have to take Ashwagandha Gold® before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Ashwagandha Gold®, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.

What are the side effects, interactions, and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Ashwagandha Gold®?
Although Ashwagandha is generally safe when taken as directed, it should NOT be taken by pregnant or lactating individuals. It is not recommended to take Ashwagandha Gold® if you are on a treatment that is designed to suppress the immune system, as Ashwagandha helps support enhanced immune function. Please consult your healthcare provider before taking this product if you are diabetic, have low blood pressure, ulcers, auto-immune disorders, thyroid disorders, or any other known or suspected medical condition or are planning a medical procedure.

Taking Ashwagandha Gold® with medications for a thyroid condition may cause too much thyroid hormone in the body and increase the effects and side effects of the thyroid hormone. Please consult a healthcare professional before taking this product if you are currently taking or plan to take any OTC or prescription medication.

Is Ashwagandha Gold® safe for long-term use?
Ashwagandha Gold® should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of an experienced herbalist or other healthcare provider.
