Stress-proof your life, naturally. Defend your body against the effects of stress with Swanson Ashwagandha Extract (also known as winter cherry)! This adaptogenic herb has been used in India for centuries to enhance the body's resistive functions during high-stress situations.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tried other formulas of ashwagandha but for me, this seems to work best. May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpful The description of this product says that it battles fatigue. I have not found that to be true, but it definitely has an effect on whether or not I get some rest at night. I have recommended this to some friends and family members who have trouble falling asleep. I'm not sure why it helps, I just know that it does. I take one at night about a half hour before bed. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Year round tonic This product provides energy in the morning and helps with sleep at the end of the day. I highly recommend it and it has an excellent safety profile. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A calming effect? I think so. I have read a lot about this product. I take it periodically, prior to a stressful situation. Perhaps, it, itself helps. Whether it is the product, itself, or whether it is my belief in it, I am facilitated to remain on an even keel. I always want to have a bottle on hand for "whenever". December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by one of the best I have been using this product for several years. I think it's more effective than other brands of ashwaganda that I have tried. This product helps me feel better and sleep more soundly. December 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Ancestors Knew I like to open a capsule and sprinkle the powder onto my morning yogurt and greens. There is a definite enhanced feeling of well-being and mental alertness. This is a must-try for any person wishing to experience a multi-level benefit. Please research this amazing supplement for the entire list of proven benefits. Indeed, our ancestors knew. November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look it up Interesting stuff, look it up online, it has many useful properties. It's helping me. I want to keep taking it. October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beneficial product This is a very beneficial product. I would recommend it to a friend. October 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Amazing Price This is one of the supplements that my Herbalist has recommended that I take. I have been paying much more for this and have to drive over 20 miles to get it . My local health food store (which usually is comparable to others) is either out of it or is much more expensive than the other store I frequent. And in saying all that neither can compare with the selection or prices that I have found on this all inclusive site. September 26, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by not sure if it works I have been taking this supplement 2 capsules a day for 2 weeks. So far I have not noticed any effects. No energizing or sedating effects. No relaxing effects. No side effects. I am wondering if the dose is low (I am 120lbs) or if the quality/effectiveness of this product is not good. May 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by very Mediocre this product is noticeably weaker than the ashwaganda tinctures December 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems to work I take these everyday and I truly believe that it has helped me with my breathing and general health. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! I feel the difference when I take it. Alas I Have found you! August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashwagandha Extract I like it! I take one in the morning and one in the early afternoon, for that extra boost, and to help calm the mind. It's been working for me and I do notice a difference if I forget to take it. Great price too. Thanks Swanson! March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow I only take one of these a day - and wow!!! December 29, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I haven't noticed any difference. December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it, really helps with stress level. November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely healthful product so delightful - not disruptive - and very healthful October 31, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommend Great value, I will purchase again. October 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson Ashwagandha Extract I take two capsules in the morning and two more at bed time. I find that this contributes to a good night's sleep. Swanson Ashwagandha Extract is good value and effective. October 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by very happy I think this makes me feel better overall, and have a more positive outlook and mood. I think it may even help with desire. August 13, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bottled Dissapointment I found this to be a dose independent, exceedingly mild energy booster. I can take one or 10 (not an hyperbole) and i get almost the same effect, the effect is short lived and barely noticeable, it may have had great effects for others but i received no other effects. It is worth nothing however i had significant stimulant tolerance. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashwagandha Extract Great product at a great price. June 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Calming Calmed my mind and helped me to sleep more soundly. June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very effective Used for a black lab. Was very effective in helping him with his daily life. June 18, 2013
