Ashwagandha Anxiety Solutions

Summary

Ashwagandha anxiety uses can help people who struggle with mild to moderate levels of anxiety.

Ashwagandha is a traditional Ayurvedic medicine that is used for the purpose of cognitive enhancement. It is mostly useful as a cognitive enhancer because it can help to reduce anxiety so effectively.

Ashwagandha Anxiety Reduction Techniques

The average dosage for ashwagandha anxiety reduction is around 3 – 500 mg per day. This is assuming that you have a standardized extract, such as KSM-66. Taking 3 – 500 mg per day is going to help to reduce anxiety levels, which can help you to increase mental performance whether it is on tests or just daily tasks.

One study found that ashwagandha could reduce cortisol levels by 27.9% (an indicator of stress) [1]. Other studies showed that giving patients ashwagandha for 8 weeks could reduce their total anxiety levels by around 56.5% [2].

By taking the dosage recommendation that we have provided (and no higher than 3000 mg per day), you will have a much better chance of handling your difficulties with anxiety. People that take even the lowest dosage range find that it is an effective nootropic for this purpose.

Side Effects and Safety with Ashwagandha

If you are taking ashwagandha, there are only a few side effects to keep in mind. For one thing, there are people who struggle from gastrointestinal distress when they take any kind of herbal remedy. This is commonly added with diarrhea, nausea, or some type of problem with stomachaches.

The only other concern that most people have with ashwagandha and Ayurvedic medicine in general is the mercury levels that are in the products. While it is not a huge risk, some of the Indian made products have had mercury scares in the past.
