First, what is Ashwagandha?

What are the selection criteria to choose the best Ashwagandha?

As with any food and dietary supplement, it is important to choose quality products before consuming them, and in particular here, before embarking on a cure of Ashwagandha.   


Therefore, in order to choose the best Ashwagandha, here are some criteria to take into account:

Purity

Le premier critère est de choisir un produit qui est pur, c’est-à-dire, qui ne contient pas d'additifs indésirables tels que des conservateurs, des colorants ou des arômes artificiels. Il conservera mieux toutes les propriétés précédemment citées de la plante.  

 

For this, the list of ingredients will be your accomplice! The best Ashwagandha is extracted from pure Ashwagandha root, to which no preservatives or chemicals are added. 

The concentration of withanolides

Withanolides are the main active components of Ashwagandha. It is also composed of withaferine A and free amino acids. Good to know: withaferine A, in too high a dose is considered toxic. It is thus advisable to respect the recommended dosages.   


What interests us to choose our supplement is the concentration of withanolides: the higher it is, the more effective Ashwagandha will be. For a complete formula, it is of course necessary not to make the impasse on its other active components.  


There are different types ofAshwagandha extracts: the KSM66® extract titrated to 5% withanolides, the Sensoril® extract, offering 10% withanolides, and the unidentified extracts.   


To choose the best Ashwagandha, we recommend choosing a product that contains a 5% concentration of withanolides, such as the patented KSM66® extract. Sensoril® extract, has a higher concentration of withanolides but less whitaferina A and other components. Brands selecting this extract tend to add other excipients, which does not allow for an organic Ashwagandha.   


At Novoma, we have chosenKSM66® extract. Made frompure Ashwagandha root, it contains 5% withanolides. We have not added any excipients to our product, which is therefore a pure organic Ashwagandha supplement, certified by Ecocert®.

Quality certification

A certified product is a product that is recognized as being of high quality. Some organizations like USP (United States Pharmacopeia), NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) or IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) guarantee that the product has been tested and meets the quality standards. Depending on the transparency of the brand, this certificate can be made available on the website, and offers you a good point of assurance.

The extraction method

The method of extraction is important because it allows to keep or not, all the active components of Ashwagandha.   

 

Il est généralement recommandé de choisir un produit qui a été extrait à l'aide d'un solvant inoffensif comme l'eau ou l'alcool, plutôt qu'à l'aide d'un solvant chimique potentiellement néfaste.

The form: capsule, powder, liquid ... What is the best form of Ashwagandha?

There are several forms of Ashwagandha available on the market: in capsules, powder, liquid extracts or tinctures. Each form having its own advantages, we have made the point to help you choose:  

 

  • Les gélules

    ✅ Avantages : les gélules d'Ashwagandha sont pratiques à consommer, faciles à conserver et faciles à doser. Il suffit de prendre la dose recommandée indiquée sur l'emballage. De plus, les gélules sont pratiques, faciles à transporter et ne nécessitent pas d’être conservées au frais. Elles sont inodores et également sans goût, ce qui représente un avantage majeur par rapport aux autres formes.
    ⛔ Inconvénients : la gélule peut être légèrement plus chère que la poudre. Cependant, elle reste majoritairement moins chère que l’extrait liquide et la teinture.  
    👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Pour qui : pour tous, notamment en période de stress ou de fatigue.
        
  • La poudre  

    ✅ Avantages : les avantages de consommer de l'Ashwagandha en poudre incluent généralement un coût moins élevé et une capacité à mélanger la poudre avec d'autres aliments ou boissons (comme thé, café, shaker ou autre).  
    ⛔ Inconvénients : le goût est le principal inconvénient de l’Ashwagandha en poudre, puisqu’il peut ne pas plaire à tout le monde. De plus, concernant le dosage, il peut être plus difficile de mesurer une dose précise de poudre.  
    👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Pour qui : pour tout le monde, idéal pour les personnes ayant du mal à avaler les gélules.    

     
  • Liquid extract

    ✅ Advantages: Ashwagandha liquid extracts are generally concentrated in active ingredients and can therefore be taken in smaller doses than powder or capsules. What's more, they can be easily mixed with other liquids.
    Disadvantages: the price is often higher than other forms, and there may be differences in quality between different manufacturers. Also, like powder, the taste may not appeal to everyone.
    👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Who: like powder, liquid extracts are suitable for everyone, especially those who don't like capsules.  

 

Pensez à prendre en compte vos préférences personnelles, vos besoins ou vos allergies, pour choisir la meilleure forme d’Ashwagandha qui vous conviendra le mieux.

The brand

Before choosing a product, it is important to find out about the brand or supplier you have selected.

A trusted brand is one that is known for the quality of its products and its transparency, whether it be on the certificates of analysis or on the composition of its products.

Therefore, remember to check the labels to make sure that the product meets your needs in terms of dosage and ingredients. Customer reviews and organic certification can also be good indicators of trust and quality.  


By following all these criteria, you are on the right track to choose the best Ashwagandha, or at least the one that will best meet your expectations and the needs of your body.

How to consume Aswhagandha?

Nous l’évoquions plus haut, l’Ashwagandha est souvent préconisé en période de stress, pour les problèmes de sommeil, les sportifs ou encore pour retrouver la forme.  

 

Concerning the dosage, it depends of course on the product you choose. It is essential to follow the doses recommended by the manufacturer.   

 

Generally speaking, the recommended dose ranges from 500 to 1000 mg per day for capsules, and 1 to 2 teaspoons of powder per day. For Ashwagandha tinctures, however, it is important to follow the recommended doses, usually from a few drops to a few milliliters per day.  

 

Ashwagandha can be consumed at any time of the day. Some people may prefer to consume it in the morning to get the most out of its energizing effects, while others may prefer to consume it at night, especially to help them get a better night's sleep.  

 

Be careful, Ashwagandha can interact with certain medications, such as sleeping pills or thyroid regulating drugs. If you are concerned by the use of these drugs, consider consulting a health professional before using it in case of doubt. 

To conclude: what is the best Ashwagandha?

En résumé, l'Ashwagandha est une plante médicinale qui peut offrir de nombreux bienfaits pour l'organisme, tels que la réduction du stress, le soutien de la fonction immunitaire, ou encore la régulation du métabolisme énergétique.
