Introducing Ashwagandha Extract Stress Support. This Ayurvedic herb exerts a neuroprotective effect. This may be due to its antioxidant action and the ability to decrease cortisol release induced by physiological stress. Ashwagandha extract may also help increase cortical cholinergic activity thus contributing to an enhancement of memory and cognition.

I love that this product! It subtly mellows me out over an extended period of time. I take one with breakfast and one at dinner and even my husband has noticed a difference - now THAT'S a testimony to how great this supplement works!

Started taking Ashwagandha Extract twice a day (one in the morning and one before bed) a month ago and have really noticed a balanced calming effect. Nothing dramatic, just evenly relaxed. Will definitely keep it on hand to help me through the stress of the holidays. Thanks!

Absolutely. Ashwagandha may be taken periodically when needed. This is how I and my wife use it and how I recommend others to use it.
Ashwagandha may support your mood during times when you know you need some extra support. It is a VERY SAFE herb. I know of no issues with ashwagandha and kidneys.
I also recommend Magnesium Plus during menses - and just prior to. Both nutrients found in Magnesium Plus are very supporting of neurotransmitters and also may help uterine spasms and therefore pain.
If you have cramps or heavy bleeding, consider also taking 1 capsule of Optimal Vitamin E daily with a meal for a few months. Vitamin E has shown benefits for those with uterine cramping.
This is a safe amount - very safe - and it is recommended to take long term. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic and tonifying herb meaning that it works best when taking long term.
You may take up to three daily without any concerns.
I typically recommend Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C - 1 tsp twice daily - as well because vitamin C helps breakdown cortisol which is the stress hormone.
I also recommend the use of Magnesium Plus - 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 before bed. This is very supportive of neurotransmitter production.
Being sure to eat every few hrs with some form of protein and vegetable is also very supportive of healthy blood sugar levels - which is critical in maintaining healthy stress hormone levels.
