>Withania somnifera, known commonly as ashwagandha, Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, or winter cherry, is an annual evergreen shrub in the Solanaceae or nightshade family that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Several other species in the genus Withania are morphologically similar. Although thought to be useful as a medicinal herb in Ayurveda and sold in many countries as a dietary supplement, there is insufficient scientific evidence that it is safe or effective for treating any disease.

Anyone else try this? I've been taking it and it really helps overall health + coritsol levels. It saved my life and even though it hasn't been scientifically confirmed I still recommend taking this 100%. It even boosts test levels for guyts


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.

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?


I was the anon who was suffering stress related burnout and borderline suffering an endocrine disorder. It fixes your cortisol levels if they are too low or too high.


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?


does it taste bad?


legality don't enter into it because its not a controlled substance. It's like vitamin d or something.


No idea, I take it in pills (see linkrel)
