Ashwagandha is an Indian Ayurvedic herb which is known to support a healthy immune system and to rebuild the body’s energy reserves. It also supports one’s endurance level, but the most noted property of Ashwagandha is its ability to literally train the body to adapt to stress, plus it’s also a mood stabilizer. Researchers have stated that Ashwagandha is comparable to powerful prescription drugs when it comes to treating stress, depression and anxiety.
Research shows that Ashwagandha also promotes anti-inflammatory, diuretic, sedative, anti-bacterial, and antifungal activities.

I’ve seen this mentioned in a few other places. What kind do think would be best to buy? I’ve seen tinctures, capsules and a bag of powder. Have you tried any yourself? Stress was always a problem for me, although I’ve largely dealt with it now, but maybe this will aid in my recovery.January 7, 2012 at 2:41 pm #70334

I’ve always taken this herb in a capsule form, but bagged powder would also be acceptable.
As far as trying it myself, I was taking it long before I contracted Candida, and after the cure I’ve continued to take it. My advice is to purchase and use it daily.

I’ve known ladies who’ve used ashwagandha with success for candida. I am aware of the successful use of capsules and tinctures. It really is personal preference – as long as the product contains the necessary active ingredient dosage, you should see results. Whole Foods has a good selection of ashwagandha products, and you can also find it online at zooscape.com here: http://www.zooscape.com/cgi-bin/maitred/GreenCanyon/questc100589
