Botanical extracts must always be standardized to ensure reliable, consistent results for users. The first active compounds discovered in ashwagandha were withanolides. Recently, a derivative group of withanolides, called sitoindosides, were identified and appear to be responsible for much of the herb’s anti-stress and anti-anxiety activities. AOR’s Gandha-600 is standardized for both withanolides and sitoindosides.
Just one capsule daily provides the recommended dosage: 600mg of a potent 10:1 extract.
