In this guide we will take an in-depth look at Shoden® Ashwagandha, including it’s key benefits, dosage, supplements & more. We'll see exactly what science has to say about this powerful herb.

What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha, also known as winter cherry, is a small evergreen shrub that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. It is one of the most important herbs of Ayurveda (the traditional system of medicine in India) and has been used for centuries for its wide range of health benefits. It's also on its way to becoming one of the most popular herbal supplements in the health and wellness industry as numerous studies have shown it to help:

  • Relieve Stress and Anxiety
  • Increase Muscle Strength and Recovery
  • Sharpen Focus and Memory
  • Improve Sleep Quality
  • Support Heart Health
  • Boost Fertility and Testosterone Levels in Men

Ashwagandha belongs to a unique class of medicinal herbs known as adaptogens. Adaptogens mimic the body’s own stress reducing hormones and increase the body’s ability to recover from stress while creating an overall feeling of balance and normalisation. However, the primary active ingredients, and the most researched, are called the Withanolide Glycosides. These Withanolides are thought to be responsible for the beneficial effects of Ashwagandha and are regarded as a marker of potency, but the concentration of Withanolides varies between the different types of Ashwagandha currently available on the market:

  • Generic Ashwagandha contains less than 2.5% withanolides;
  • KSM-66® Ashwagandha - standardised to 5% withanolide concentration;
  • Sensoril® Ashwagandha - standardised to 10% withanolide concentration;
  • Shoden® Ashwagandha - standardised to 35% withanolide concentration
