Health Notes

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Ashwagandha Extract:

      Ashwagandha is one of those herbs that fall under the category of "adaptogens". The concept of an adaptogen is a bit more of an Eastern theme, and most modern Western medicine question the validity of it. The cynic in me says that the Western, commercially-driven, money grubbing society that we are in the West, particularly the pharmaceutical industry, is doing a great job spreading fear into people to not trust anything natural or herbal! A search in google Scholar will bring up numerous studies with Ashwagandha, with almost all showing a wide range of reputed benefits, which is characteristic of an adaptogen. It is well studied. At least for me, this helps my body's response to stress and fatigue, and, when taken in the evening (45 min before bed) with some herbal tea, produces a nice gentle sedative effect, helping me get a good night sleep. It really works! No groggy feeling in the morning.

        Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Ashwagandha Extract:

        I'm a 60 y/o man that recently experienced forced-retirement, foreclosure filed on my home, selling that home (to avoid foreclosure), buying another home with my life's-savings, moving and doing DIY repairs to the entire house - on a budget. Life is pretty tough when you experience these things in a short period (within a year). So, I wasn't sleeping so good because of worrying about the house, inspectors, etc. and that cost me my energy and my mojo. Well, while shopping a BOGO sale at GNC online I saw this ashwagandha (GNC 470mg), did a little research (I'd never heard of the stuff) and decided to try it. Six hours is how long it took for me to notice that I was feeling very different from the past year (or years). I had forgotten I took the stuff around 8:30 a.m. around 3:30 p.m. I just felt good about the work I was doing on the house. I wasn't forgetting where I left tools I used an hour earlier and I didn't have to stop and think "ok, what was I working on before my thoughts strayed to another project?" When I punched-out for the day I noticed I felt calm, but very alert and just comfortable or "satisfied" with life. That night I fell right to sleep and slept (good REM-type sleep)about 8 hours (I also take 5mg melatonin). So, I took another at 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. the next day and felt about the same all day as the day before when I only took one. I experienced a complete loss of stress and that made every other aspect of "life" good. So that old saying about "falling into a barrel of poop and coming out smellin' like a rose" has real application here. I've been taking 1 470 mg standardized extract daily for about a month with no "bad" side effects. I thank God for this "accidental-find"!

          I have PTSD and found that it had a immediate result, helping me to focus better then I have in years. Better than many script meds that the VA provided.

              I bought these after reading several articles about their energy increasing effects. I do not notice a big difference but I have only been taking them for about 1 week. I haven't notice any positive effects to make me recommend them at this time, but I have read many medical articles recommending them so I will continue taking them based on that.
