i take this everyday. it definitely helps. how do you take it? the markup is crazy for pills.
usually in pill form. I'm a labor aristo/pmc so i can afford it
Damn did everyone on leftypol just suddenly get into ashwaganda? It's based I take it every day. Great for reducing cortisol and stress and in turn lowers stomach fat. Good for inflammation too. I have PTSD which results in cortisol spikes and it's great for leveling those off.>>31
I take a cheap powder off of amazon it was equivalent to about $5 USD and could probably last me nearly a year. A little under a teaspoon in a mug with warm water. No need to stir, if a bunch settles on the bottom add more warm water and gulp it down. It is not unpleasant, tastes like nothing, not enough product to notice it. The texture is fine. 10 000 000 times more pleasant to consume than creatine.
I don't get it. What's it for? How did it save your life?
essentially, it makes sure too high levels of cortisol (stress hormone) don't wreck your body. High stress levels of cortisol can ruin your health cause weight gain, lower test. Too low levels of cortisol leads too tiredness, dizzyness, etc. I felt like I was dying every day tbh. I slept 12+ hours a day and still tired. Too high stress levels also drops your test due to flight or fight response
nice at first but it sucks after a while. makes you tired and complacent
can you cycle off and on?
NTA but you can. IME days that I don't take it seem to result in higher cortisol again and more stress. I would recommend taking not too high of a dose once daily and finding other ways to get energy and motivation, like exercise or caffeine if you need a substance. If you want to get over laziness you have to keep yourself active though. Either doing chores or working out or go for a walk w/e
whats a good daily dose? 1000mg?
yes something like that, I eyeball it at about half a teaspoon which should be 1000 or 1500 milligrams I am guessing. If you experiment with weighing doses please let us know how you go
Anyone got a source for supplying this (legally)
Where to buy?
legality don't enter into it because its not a controlled substance. It's like vitamin d or something.https://www.youtheory.com/shop/ashwagandha>>257
No idea, I take it in pills (see linkrel)
