"Personally, I found this to be effective only in higher doses. (It might be different for you) I use this for overall well being. I do use other vitamins and I'm very consistent with my diet & training regiment, so I can't honestly say this is the 'only' product for my well being.
It is well worth trying out at least once, especially with the excellent prices here."
"The only reason that I would say okay for this product is that I'm not sure of the full results that it has given me. It appears to have me retain a good mood...not currently using any other kind of mood supplement so it seems to help with possible mood issues."
"After researching different herbs to help combat low energy levels, I found that Ashwagandha was recommended for what I was experiencing. Having already been a VitaCost customer, I started my shopping there for this herb and was pleasantly surprised by the price. I did do some additional browsing at a number of other websites, but found that, as usual, Vitacost offers a great product for a very reasonable price. After using the product for around 3 weeks now, I do seem to have quite a bit more energy and require less sleep than before I started taking it, even after decreasing the dosage to only 1 capsule per day. When I first started taking the Ashwagandha I was taking one capsule in the morning, one in the evening. I started having trouble sleeping more than a very few hours per night within a few days of starting the regimen. I now take just one in the morning with breakfast and it seems to be working perfectly, giving me plenty of energy to get through the day and I no longer need an afternoon nap.
Over all, I would highly recommend the Vitacost Ashwagandha. The star rating I gave is strictly because I've only been using the product for a few weeks and have no long term experience to confirm that this product is specifically responsible for the improvement in energy levels."
"I've been taking this for 2 years now and it really does help me get through the day with more energy without wiring me up like caffeine does. When I don't take it, I do feel a difference in my energy level. I strongly recommend this herb to most of my patients."
"I took this under the reccomendation of a friend. She said it just makes you feel more balanced out in the mind. Maybe I take too many supplements and something in those counteracted this one. Maybe it works for others, but not for me unfortunately...sorry I can't be more help."
"I ordered ashwagandha after I learned that it de-stresses. True to its reputation, I found out for myself that it does.
It doesn't make me drowsy or dopey; it's just that things that usually irritate me don't bother me so much. I just experience a sort of even-temperedness that smooths out my day. It's also a great antioxidant. I'm glad I discovered it, and plan on taking it indefinitely."
"I definitely noticed a difference after using Ashwagandha. I use it at night, and completely fall asleep faster, as well as stay asleep. Whether it's making me less stressed...still waiting on that one!!"
