Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera): Focus, Lower Stress, Higher Testosterone

This mighty Indian ginseng is gaining popularity in both the herbal community and the gym.

My own experiences with relaxing my back has caused me to stock up on this amazing herb.

Withania somnifera is a powerful antioxidant that helps to suppress free-radical production. In some studies, it has increased testosterone levels by up to 40%.

Flex Magazine recommends  a dosage of l,500-2,000mg three times per day with food, with one dose 30-60 minutes before workouts.
