Ashwagandha For Energy

Ashwagandha has been used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years.  Among its many medicinal benefits it is also used to increase energy.  This of course it what drew me to this very interesting plant.  Another benefit is that it helps with mental clarity as well as help the body adapt to stress.

Last month I started taking Wild Harvest Ashwagandha; this is made from organic Ashwagandha root,  to help increase my energy level.  I haven't been taking the recommended dose of 1200 mg just yet,  but rather I take one capsule at  400 mg.  Even though I am not taking the full dose I can still see an increase in my energy.


Getting to the gym is drudgery for me but the raise in my energy level has had a positive effect on the duration and intensity of my work outs, thus I am able to burn more calories.

I still have a motivation problem when it comes to working out, but at least now I no longer burn out after 30 minutes.

I have never heard of it before either...does it give you that racing heart feel? Most products like this on the market do, and I won't take them because of it. Hmmm, will have to try. Thanks for sharing!
