And just like anyone else who's practicing #wellnessfromhome, we're all about that daily boost!
If you’ve ever wondered, “what is ashwagandha?” or “what are ashwagandha's benefits?” we're here to feed your curiosity with research-backed information and A+ product picks. Keep scrolling for a crash course on the ingredient as well as the fan-favorite, Instagram-worthy ashwagandha supplements in our lineup.
Let's get started!
Ashwagandha, often referred to as “Indian Ginseng,” is an adaptogenic herb that helps to promote a healthy response to taxing situations and supports normal levels of mental clarity. It is also known for its stamina-enhancing abilities. The organic ashwagandha found in our Collagen Lattes is produced using the first-of-its-kind extraction process, based on “Green Chemistry” principles, without using alcohol or any other chemical solvents.**
As previously mentioned, a handful of our products contain ashwagandha – specifically, 600mg KSM-66® organic ashwagandha root extract. This superstar ingredient is a clinically-studied, bioavailable Ayurvedic herb that supports the body’s ability to adapt and promotes calmness and relaxation.** It is the highest concentration, most bioavailable full-spectrum root extract on the market today, retaining all the natural constituents of the herb in the original balance.
Our entire line of Collagen Lattes not only boasts skin-loving hyaluronic acid and energy-boosting MCTs (from the coconut milk powder), but also 600mg of ashwagandha in every serving. It’s the coziest way to stir up you wellness routine.
