Nearly finished with the capsules and I've seen no difference. Just after I purchased it I noticed this brand in one of the lead supermarket's vitamin isle, so I'm a bit sceptical about the quality.

This product works well for people with high anxiety issues. I personally find that I only need to take one tablet in the morning even though the recommended dosage for adult is 2 per day after meals. Would highly highly recommend this before any prescribed medication from doctors (i.e. antidepressants)

Been taking one capsule an hour before going to bed at night and it really relaxes me and puts me in a calm state. Too calming the first time a took it though, but I'm not complaining. No wonder it's called the "chill pill".

I felt calmer and more focused almost immediately when I took it as directed. Good lifestyle support in busy, stressful times.
22/11/2019, By Amori

28/04/2019, By Suné
These pills didn't do anything for me. Even after I stopped drinking them, I didn't feel anything different.
25/04/2019, By Shayal
I love this! I'm a huge stressor, it's calmed me down immensely without feeling sedated or drowsy like most stress and calming aids do. I highly recommend this product to anyone that suffers from stress, anxiety or is just an overthinker in general that just need to be calm, collected and think clearly.
17/04/2019, By Kelly
I do believe I'm sleeping better since I've been taking this. I can even nap during the day on weekends, which is not easy for me to do (day-time sleeping).
17/04/2019, By R
colloidal silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate---are these not carcinogens, is this product paraben free? RESEARCH PLEASE
16/04/2019, By Catherina
Excellent with anxiety and leveling hormone levels
11/04/2019, By Gerda
I'm giving this product by a Dr's suggestion for my almost 7 year old boy struggling with anxiety. It seems as though it does calm him down at nights, he sleeps better and grits less on his teeth while sleeping.
16/03/2019, By Lailah
I'm a firm believer in all Himalaya products. And this one hasn't let me down.
04/03/2019, By Candy
This product helped me when I was going through severe anxiety and stress, and all the Dr. wanted to do was put me on tranquillisers. Highly recommend this product!
03/03/2019, By Avril
Love their products
26/02/2019, By Bronwyn
What a wonderful, versatile supplement. I starting taking it for support for anxiety however this has even helped normalizing my hypothyroidism. The first natural product I've tried to ever do so.
11/02/2019, By Mrs D
Helps to keep the stress and anxiety at bay, I get stressed to a point where my stomach becomes inflammed and bloated. This product has really helped me keep calm I usually pair this with the sceletium and it works wonders.
10/02/2019, By Margaret
Really like this product
30/01/2019, By Noxy Poxy Pudding and Pie
Since I started taking this I feel really calm, really sleepy and maybe even a little stoned. I don't generally suffer from anxiety so that's not what I bought it for so I'm a little surprised by that.
22/01/2019, By pasc
Excellent product for anxiety. Two capsules a day is enough to help with symptoms.
02/01/2019, By Amanda
Dont drink this product if you have stomach ulcer!!!!!Very good product for my vriend,but i cant drink it with my ulcer.
31/12/2018, By Jackie
I take this morning and evening and it definitely relaxes me and helps me cope with stress. At night it helps me sleep.
30/12/2018, By Amanda
A must have,because it has so many benifits for the body!!And it works great.
24/11/2018, By Megan
The first day I was a bit sleepy, but after that my body got used to it and I just felt more calm. This is much better than the harsh addictive calming tablets doctors give you, and helps ease you into a relaxing evening that then helps you sleep better as well.
19/11/2018, By Nomthandi
Bought it because it kept showing up in my (own personal) research on combating PCOS. I'm now on my 2nd bottle because I noticed it helps to curb my cravings. I take it with other supplements.
05/11/2018, By Michelle
A lighter form of stress and anxiety relief. Much prefer it over other products out there as it doesn't leave me feeling sedated
02/11/2018, By Amy
Really great product! Works well & I can feel a difference when using the tablets.
29/10/2018, By Anonymous
This is an amazing product it really does deliver all the results it promises. No harmful effects. It's affordable. Do yourself a favour and check out the videos and information on Google YouTube about how great Ashwagandha is.
19/09/2018, By Jules
Purchased mainly for thyroid inflammation. Took one capsule daily felt no improvement. Must take two capsules daily, only felt an improvement with my thyroid a week after opening the second bottle and taking two capsules daily. .Sleep pattern far better than it was.

07/08/2018, By Veganshmegan
Been taking two tabs at night and they help put me to sleep. Ashwaganda is not a quick fix...but taken long term it has great benefits
20/07/2018, By Stacey
I highly recommend this product. I took it twice a day consecutively and saw the results within a week. I found that it helped me focus, feel in control and made sleeping easier.
11/06/2018, By Nat
Very effective product - I felt it a day after starting. Very calming. For me it was a bit too calming - because it is a sedative it can cause mild depression and lethargy in some individuals so beware. I will definitely take it during stressful times but not day to to day - just ended up feeling sleepy all day, low motivation and need something dopamine related/ stimulating to get me going like coffee. Some people report it as energizing though. My husband tried it too - he also slept very well and felt like he could get up easier in the mornings but after a week he also started feeling too tired etc Definitely worth a try and effective - just want people to know that it affects people differently.
07/06/2018, By Ron
Already recommended it to a friend! Its one of the products in my daily dose of supplements
07/06/2018, By Shakirah
I felt a difference after the first day. Feeling calmer and more clear-headed. I started using this along with Shatavari to balance hormones.
04/06/2018, By Kate
Felt the difference after the first day, really helps ability to calmly process and prioritise in times of exhaustion and stress. Also improves quality of sleep.

This is by FAR THE BEST calming and anti-stress help you can get out there! i am a completely new person!1 completely new! i have never been so calm in my life! i noticed a difference after 10 days, and would recommend it to anyone who suffers from high anxiety , and when life just gets to much, and you feel overwhelmed .

Best brand of ashwaganda that I've tried. 2 days and my sleep cycle went back to normal, generally a feeling of more calm and physically feel SO much better. Adrenal fatigue miracle treatment.

08/02/2018, By Nadia
09/11/2017, By King
I'm calmer, I feel relaxed almost all the time, and my energy is coming back bit by bit. What I like most about it is how it helps me deal with stress and conflict better than I normally would, overall this is a great product.

28/08/2017, By Ingrid
This is a repeat purchase and so far, I think it is living up to it's brief. Lots of stress and things happening in my world, and am a much calmer than I probably ought to be *-* :) Will keep taking this then!
13/08/2017, By Mandy
When my husband initially looked into Ashwaganda and list all its effects, I was skeptical. How could one product claim to do so much??
Well, I've been blown away! My husband is happier, his stress levels are down, his energy levels up and his immune system stronger then ever.
After a long day at work, he would previously get home exhausted and head straight to the couch for a nap. Now he walks through the door and heads straight out in to the garden to throw our kids in the air.
Aswaganda tablets have honestly made my husband, and therefore our family, a happier, healthier unit
05/07/2017, By Missy
When it comes to deadlines or even living a hectic lifestyle, I tend to over stress and of course it is naturally followed by getting sick. I have found that by using the ashwagandha tablets, not only do they act as a protection against the downs from high stress levels but they also ensure that you don't feel like you under a lot of pressure, feeling anxious or extremely stressed out.
11/01/2017, By Shari
This product does work and helps to reduce stress levels and keeps you feeling balanced.
19/08/2016, By chantel
i would recommend this to anyone who needs good quality products to work for you. this adaptogen gives you energy, helps you to focus, and keeps you stress-free.
