Effects of ashwagandha root extract consumption on muscle mass and strength

Recommended Posts

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26609282

This study reports that ashwagandha supplementation is associated with significant increases in muscle mass and strength and suggests that ashwagandha supplementation may be useful in conjunction with a resistance training program.

Compared to the placebo subjects, the group treated with ashwagandha had significantly greater increases in muscle strength on the bench-press exercise and the leg-extension exercise, and significantly greater muscle size increase at the arms. Compared to the placebo subjects, the subjects receiving ashwagandha also had significantly greater reduction of exercise-induced muscle damage as indicated by the stabilization of serum creatine kinase , significantly greater increase in testosterone level, and a significantly greater decrease in body fat percentage.

This looks interesting. Did a little reading, and it also helps with anxiety, lowers cortisol, and a better sleep. Also, Organic KSM-66 is supposed to be the best. Thanks Olympic for bringing this to our attention. 😎

I have been taking ashwaganda for about two months now. Haven't noticed too much in strength gains but arms have come along a little. The biggest thing I've noticed is better erections! Wasn't expecting this to happen but did further research and found apparently it can help with this also. Anyone else here using it? It it recommended to cycle ashwaganda?

there is the libido effect with this item,there are many reports on many benefits but everything is based on individuals. Your dna is unique so effects vary from person to person. I love my natural remedies,they have shunned upon by big pharmas because they lose money
