Overview:

KSM-66® is a patented organic ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root extract that is standardized to contain the most bioactive constituents of any ashwagandha extract on the market. 


Ashwagandha, also referred to as Indian ginseng, is one of the most powerful natural adaptogens known to man. Adaptogens are substances that modulate our response to stress (i.e. help the body cope with external and internal stressors). 


Clinical research suggests that ashwagandha can significantly reduce stress, enhance mood, boost cognitive function, support immunity, and much more. Further findings demonstrate that supplementing with ashwagandha is an effective treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome and a variety of neurodegenerative disorders.

Ashwagandha contains a potent profile of medicinal compounds, including choline, alkaloids, saponins and steroidal lactones (specifically withanolides).Withaferin-A is arguably the most beneficial withanolide in ashwagandha, as research suggests that has anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, anti-cancer, antioxidant, and immune-boosting actions in humans. 


It’s imperative to note that many “generic” ashwagandha extract supplements on the market contain a negligible amount of withanolides, rendering the product rather useless. 


Best Mood includes KSM-66® to ensure you get the most effective, potent, and heavily researched extract of ashwagandha.
