As someone who suffers from cfs/cfids i was quite interested in the qualities of ashwagandha as an adaptogen [stress regulator].
I did some looking around and came across another adaptogen siberian ginseng. [not to be confused with other ginseng].
I have also read the following, ‘Diabetes melitis is a result of the inability to properly metabolize carbohydrates. The influence of Siberian ginseng on the body’s energy systems relates directly to carbohydrate metabolism. Brekhman writes that in the majority of cases, three doses daily can be expected to reduce blood sugar by 15-25mg percent. Patients reported increased well being, lessening of weakness and fatigue, and a reduction in thirst and itching, In severe cases, the herb has also been useful as an adjunct to insulin.’
I’m not sure how blood sugar is related to candida very curious about this. .
I’m also a bit worried because on my packet it says:
Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
Total Carbohydrate 737 mg <1%*
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) (Root) 1.0 g (1,000 mg) †
* Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
† Daily Value not established.
So does this supplement contain carbs and is it enough to be detrimental to candida recovery?! It’s a paltry 1% or less but better safe then sorry.
Would be interested in peoples thoughts on this supplement…
I think it could make a great addition to help combat stress which makes a massive difference in my cfs- i’m also trying different ashwagandha brands to see which gives me the most benefit.
gaea herbs- organic india- paradise herbs and oregons wild harvest are all the brands i am trying.
