What is Shoden® Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, is an adaptogen. Adaptogens support the body’s ability to adapt from stress while also supporting overall feelings of balance and vitality. Much like ginseng in traditional uses, an ashwagandha supplement is used to support virility and vitality. Some well known ashwagandha benefits are the potential to help support balanced inflammation levels and promote focus. Other ashwagandha uses include taking ashwagandha for sleep and as well as other ashwagandha health benefits.

Shoden® is a clinically-tested, purified extract of Ashwagandha made from carefully selected roots and leaves. With an industry leading 35% Withanolide Glycosides (measured by improved HPLC/UPLC methods), Shoden® Ashwagandha offers high bioavailability and shows bioactivity even at low doses. This means that Shoden® Ashwagandha carries by far the highest composition compared to any other extracts in the market. This makes Shoden® a potent ashwagandha supplement for those wanting a wide range of ashwagandha benefits.*

Shoden® Lab Testing

Here at Nootropics Depot, we never release a product unless we can validate the science in an ISO accredited lab. This is why we worked with the team from Arjuna, the makers of Shoden, to create improved analytical methods for testing ashwagandha. The standard USP method for assaying withanolides only looks at 8-10 of them. However, there are over 40 different withanolides made by the ashwagandha plant. This means that by only using the USP method, you are missing the majority of the withanolides types. By working with the scientific team from Arjuna, we were able to develop and validate much more accurate assay methods for testing the total withanolide content of ashwagandha. As part of the validation process, the withanolides were structurally elucidated via NMR, which allowed for the expansion of the withanolides that can be measured. This process has led to the most accurate ashwagandha assay methods in the world. Two ISO accredited lab can now perform this lab testing: Omnient Labs and Intertek. To make better products, you have to be able to measure more accurately. This is why advancing the science is so crucial. It allows for a more complete picture of the botanicals we love!

Quick Comparison of Sensoril, KSM, and Shoden® Ashwagandha

By now you may have tried a few different ashwagandha extracts. Some well known ashwagandha extracts are KSM-66 and Sensoril.

    Most stimulating

    For me this is definitely the stimulating ash you might be looking for I dunno if it's cause of all I combined it with but it gives me a strong mood boost without much lethargy/avoidance until the evening, where i fall asleep hours before I used to.

    powerful - tastes terrible

    This stuff is super powerful. I think it works very strongly and at least for me the recommended dose is way way way too high. It might depend on how sensitive you are and what effect you are looking for but I find that I can take 10-30 mg to get a strong effect as it builds up in your system. THe only thing taking anything close to the full dose does is overload your system and knock you out.

    no effect on anxiety

    it is very difficult to take the right amount. I had to buy a miligram scale. The taste is awful but slightly better than Tongkat Ali. In terms of its effect on anxiety, there is none.

    Great Overall Supplement

    A great Ashwagandha extract overall- ideal for someone looking for a mental and physical edge by decreasing stress and increasing motivation and focus.

    Helps with calm focus, also boosts immune system

    I take this during the day when I feel I need a boost of focus, if I am under undue stress, or if I feel like I might be about to catch a cold or something. I feel calm and focused when I take this. I have not tried other ashwagandha, but since it sounded like this is the most powerful formulation, I just went with this and do not regret it. If I had to complain about anything, I guess if it was a little bit more of a relaxed focus to be slightly more creative-feeling, that might work well, but I already excel at creativity and idea-generation, so this helps once I have determined what I want to do and need to implement it.

    Best Ashwaghanda Extract I have ever tried!

    You can literally feel this extract doing it's magic in 3 days! Stress is suppressed a lot. I feel more relaxed and stress free but not sedated. My focus and energy are up and my sleep quality has improved. My friends also experience the same benefits as me. Shipping was decently fast since I live far away from US. I will regularly buy this one because I love it.

    Not for stress and anxiousness

    I wanted this product so much as on paper it seemed very promising. Long story short it was useless for stress and anxiousness and I felt fatigued from the stress draining my energy. And didn't calm down racing mind and overthinking. It is good for getting me to feel sleepy at night. However it was not the purpose I intended to use the ingredient for. I hope it works better for you

    KSM feels way to sedating, but this? It's something else.

    I've been taking this for a month and I can say this works better than KSM. I've taken KSM for years on and off. But when I take KSM, I feel too relaxed, like I want to snooze, and it kind of does make my emotions feel "neutral" . When I looked up this phenomenon, it looks like I'm not the only one. Somehow ashwagandha kinda makes me not care. Like cold feeling. While it does reduce stress, it seems to reduce emotions. So Shoden, it makes me feel like energized, in a calm way. It's not caffeine for sure but it puts me in the zone. My emotions, I still need time to observe this. I've taken a week off from shoden to observe my reactions to pleasure etc. Then later, maybe after a few days, I'll use it again.

    Amazingly Powerful & Balanced!

    I have been a long time user of KSM-66 Ashwagandha, for not only reducing stress, but to boost testosterone, improve sleep, and increase endurance. It's helped at improving testosterone, libido, and stress management. Not overtly potent, but still helped. I had initially started with regular Ashwagandha and graduated to KSM-66. I never wanted to use Sensoril, because I did not want an overtly sedating effect during the day at work. Along comes Shoden. I had heard rumblings of how arjuna, the maker of CurcuGreen(was BSM-95), was making a super potent Ashwagandha with a whopping 35% of full spectrum Withanolides, while removing the potentially toxic Withaferin A. Please correct me if I'm wrong. So, I received a 30g tub of Shoden earlier this week, and what I have experienced thus far, is nothing short of amazing. I have been taking KSM-66 for a long time and I have essentially have become immune to noticing any "felt" effects. It still had an effect on reducing stress reactions and improving testosterone, but more subtle. Back to Shoden, after taking the first dose using an empty gelatin capsule, I noticed a more pronounced calming effect, but without sedation or drowsiness. This was great. It's provided a steady amount of energy, while rather dramatically reducing my bodies response to stressors. It kept my body from giving me Blips of adrenaline, when experiencing stressors at work. I also noticed a reduction in a type of flooding with cortisol, that I experience with significant stressful situations. This is great! It's the best of both worlds(calming without drowsiness). By the Third day, I noticed an increase in libido and frequency of erections. So I cannot wait for the way more pronounced effect than KSM-66, with increasing testosterone. According to the new clinical study. Another thing I noticed at night time, especially if taken closer to bed time or with dinner, was getting to sleep much faster than normal. When I hit the pillow, now it feels like I'm getting to sleep much faster. I am also staying a sleep longer, before getting up to use the bathroom during the night. This is something I have been doing a lot more lately, with some of the heart herbs I've been using. Some of these heart herbs have been producing a natural diuretic effect, which is very annoying at bedtime! I haven't been able to ascertain Shoden's improvements in endurance and strength yet. However, I have full confidence, that Shoden will greatly outperform, both regular Ashwagandha and KSM-66, in this regard. Sensoril would not be an ideal candidate for improving endurance and athletic performance, due to it being primarily focused on stress, and improving relaxation. I greatly look forward to the long term benefits of Shoden. I'm very greatful that a quality company, like Nootropics Depot, can get such an exceptional product out to us in a timely manner. Thanks

    Best Clean Focus

    Five stars across the board. I’ve tried all of the Ashwagandha offerings from ND where sensoril has been my go to. I didn’t care for KSM much as it kind of made me feel loopy. Shoden is the perfect daytime Ashwagandha for me. It is a perfect calm focus that lasts a very long time. Probably longer than all of the other Ashwagandha effects. It’s smooth, it’s subtle... but it’s THERE. I’ll be replacing this with my KSM during the daytime 100% and keeping my sensoril at night. I’ll definitely reorder this one and I strongly recommend this to anyone who wants a good clean focus during daytime activities!
