Ashwagandha is one of the most revered and widely used plants in traditional Ayurveda, the medicine of ancient India, and is the ideal supplement for those facing constant stress and chronic fatigue. Also known as Indian ginseng, it is considered a rejuvenative tonic, supporting energy and vitality. Gandha-600 is an extract of Withania somnifera (ashwagandha), properly standardized for its two main medicinal components: withanolide and sitoindoside.
In North America, ashwagandha is becoming widely known as an adaptogen; an herb that protects against the effects of the body’s stress response. Stress, especially chronic stress, can lead to the development of digestive issues, vitamin C depletion, adrenal exhaustion, decreased libido and sexual function, poor physical endurance, and increased anxiety. Ashwagandha reduces these effects of stress, helps to conserve mental energy, and supports the immune system. Gandha-600 is an extract of ashwagandha, properly standardized for its two main anti-inflammatory and anti-stress components: withanolide and sitoindoside.
Botanical extracts must always be standardized to ensure reliable, consistent results for users. The first active compounds discovered in ashwagandha were withanolides. Recently, a derivative group of withanolides, called sitoindosides, were identified and appear to be responsible for much of the herb’s anti-stress and anti-anxiety activities. AOR’s Gandha-600 is standardized for both withanolides and sitoindosides. Just one capsule daily provides the recommended dosage: 600mg of a potent 10:1 extract.
