Did you know?

The ashwagandha root (Whitania somnifera) is also known as the sleep berry, winter cherry or Indian ginseng and means ”smell of the horse" in English. Traditionally, it is used in Ayurvedic medicine as a strengthening and stress-relieving tonic, as it is believed that ashwagandha increases physical resilience. Ashwagandha therefore takes its place as the King of Ayurvedic Herbs. The efficacy of ashwagandha root is said to come from a complex blend of active ingredients, so all ingredients must be present in their natural proportions, just as they are in the root, without over-representing any one ingredient.
Our extract, which is contained in ZeinPharma® Ashwagandha KSM-66 Extract® capsules, was researched and developed for 14 years and tested in 22 randomised human studies according to the Gold Standard . Our Ashwagandha 500 mg capsules contain exactly this so-called full spectrum extract with the optimal balance of all ingredients from the most researched and patented KSM-66 Extract®. You can buy our ashwagandha capsules directly in our shop or in any German pharmacy, quoting the Pharmacy Central Number (PZN): 16702997.


How long can you take ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is intended for long-term use. However, it is recommended to take a break of one week after reaching the desired goals. From experience we can tell you that taking it for about 8 weeks is best.

How long does it take before I notice a difference from taking ashwagandha?

It generally depends on the desired goal. It can be assumed that the first results will be noticeable after 1-2 weeks. Nevertheless, this time-scale cannot be generalised as every body is unique.

What are the side effects of ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is considered a very safe medicinal plant and is usually well tolerated, as long as a high-quality ashwagandha extract is used. People should be wary of arbitrary claims with speculative high dosages.
Only when larger quantities were ingested were complaints such as abdominal pain, diarrhoea and nausea noted.
Children, pregnant women and nursing mothers should not take ashwagandha. In case of cardiovascular or other complaints, the intake should be discussed with a doctor.

Can I open the capsules and mix them into a drink?

Yes, you can. Our Ashwagandha extract has a fairly neutral, slightly buttery taste and is not bitter like other Ashwagandha extracts, making it an excellent choice for use in food and drink. We recommend mixing if in warm milk before bedtime or in Golden Milk in the middle of the day.

Can you overdose on ashwagandha?

Every person is unique and has different nutritional needs. Although the recommended dosage for our ZeinPharma® Ashwagandha is one capsule per day, we recommend that you find YOUR dose. Start with one capsule per day for about 2 to 3 days and only increase the dose thereafter (add an extra capsule per day as needed) until you feel the effects are right for you. Daily applications are important to achieve optimal results. However, we do not recommend taking more than 3 capsules per day.

Most of the effects of ashwagandha are due to the withanolides it contains. The proportion should be 3-5 percent, which is why people should not exceed the recommended maximum dose, otherwise side effects may become noticeable. If the proportion is higher than 5 percent, this usually indicates extracts that have been mixed together and do not therefore indicate a natural ratio of ashwagandha root.

When is the best time to take the Ashwagandha capsules?

Our recommendation:

  • take after dinner, preferably 30 minutes before bedtime

  • or 30 minutes before a sporting activity, such as muscle building training

  • or at noon 30 minutes before the main meal

What is the difference between normal Ashwagandha powder and ZeinPharma® KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract Powder?

It is generally believed that the ashwagandha in any capsules is equivalent to an extract. However, this quite reasonable assumption is exploited by suppliers who merely fill the capsules with ashwagandha root powder and add an inferior leaf powder-extract mixture. The powder is then sold comparatively as a 10% extract.

However, these capsules are far from a high-quality extract!

Ashwagandha extract, as found in our product as well as in most published studies, is understood to be the concentration of all water-soluble components, because to produce this extract, the root powder is dissolved and the components dissolved in the water are then dried. This is a complex process, the result of which is highly concentrated ashwagandha powder, which is called an extract and is worthy of the name!

One of our ZeinPharma® Ashwagandha Capsules contains 500 mg, which corresponds to about 6000 mg of ashwagandha powder and tastes buttery rather than bitter.

Filled in capsules, this extract represents a very high-quality product that cannot be compared with capsule-filled root powder. Neither in terms of price, nor effect.

So when buying, you should always pay close attention to what is in the capsules!

How is ZeinPharma® Ashwagandha Extract produced?

A specially developed extraction method (without toxic or environmentally harmful solvents) is used for our ashwagandha extract powder KSM-66®. The Ashwagandha KSM-66 Extract® is standardised according to the active ingredient specifications and therefore always contains consistent ingredients.

A simple powder is basically the plant or root dried and ground, and the ingredients therefore have no real spectrum of activity. It also takes a lot of powder to obtain the same amount of our KSM-66 Extract®. The production takes place in India according to the highest quality, production and hygiene standards.

Certifications: according to the GMP (USP, NSF, NPA-UL, WHO), 100% USDA Organic, Non-GMO (Non-GMO Project Verified), Gluten-free (from GFCO), BSCG Drug-Free, Kosher, Halal, HACCP and several others.
