"Ashwagandha is a traditional Ayurvetic medicine from the plant Withania Somnifera and sometimes referred to as 'Indian Ginseng' or Wintercherry and touted as the 'Queen of Ayurveda'.
It is classified as an Adaptogen (compound able to reduce the biochemical effects of a perceived stress) and as a Rasayana, which is a term used to refer to the highest class of Ayurveda. It has been traditionally used to treat almost all forms of ailmentsuch as analgesia, astringent, adaptogen, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, immuno-stimulant and cardioprotective. The root or root extract are commonly used, although the fruits of the Ashwagandha plant (the Wintercherries) also have therapeutic potential.
There has been reported to be high variability in the amount of active withanolides in common nutritional supplements, which may be due either to lack of standardization of root powder."
Product contains one (1) 125g or 250g jar of Ashwagandha Whole Plant Extract (4-5% Withanolides).

This stuff smells & tastes horribly synthetic, reminiscent of a nail salon just on opening the jar. As a new customer here & having read some rave reviews of ND, I really wanted to love this product. I have been utilizing ashwagandha daily from a local supplier for a year or so now, & I adore it; however, this product is simply not palatable and clearly will not work as a replacement for my local source as I move & travel :( I'm genuinely unclear if it's fit for consumption. If it bears any of ashwagandha's typical earthy sweetness under the harsh scent & flavor of something like turpentine, then it is not readily apparent in this product. Off scent alone, body signals scream "poison! No thanks!" Not sure if it's an issue with how it's extracted, the source, or what because the other 3 products I ordered from ND (satisfactorily) bear none of this hallmark signature. The other reviews being so positive (and dated) makes me wonder if the supplier has not changed since then. Thaïs on 18th Sep 2017
I bought this about a year ago. Mainly for anxiety and mild depression. If you take at least the minimum dose it has relaxing properties to it and anti anxiety properties also. If you read other information from other sites about it you can go much higher than the minimum dose. I have a digital scale that I measured out on and I usually take around 700 mg. I also put about 270 mg of L theanine in it too couple of hours before bedtime. 200 mg of theanine doesn't do that much for me so that's why I add extra. It doesn't sedate me that bad but is a noticeable subtle relaxation. I also take it for the other health benefits that it offers which is a lot. After taking it for a while during the daytime my stress levels seem less. Nothing major but definitely noticeable. I just ordered the KSM 66 Version so maybe I'll put a review on that later on. Just some advice. I would start off at a really low dose to test how your stomach reacts to it. The first couple times I did it irritated my stomach but I've built up to it and now I can take a much higher dose with no issues. Nate on 3rd May 2016
I think it has done awesome things for my hair which was starting to thin out and look unhealthy. Also I feel calmer generally. Unknown on 2nd Nov 2015
This was pretty good for anxiety and overall mood.
Packaging was nice, as always. It has a strong flavor, but if you chase it quickly it won't bother you.
Shipping was on-point as well as the customer service. Unknown on 15th Jul 2015
