KSM-66 Reduces Cortisol Levels, Stress

HYDERABAD, India—Ashwagandha (as KSM-66 from Ixoreal Biomed) significantly redcued  cortisol levels and stress on all measures in a recent study (Indian J Psychol Med. 2012;34(3)255-262).

The study concluded KSM-66 can be used to increase the resistance to  stress and improve the quality of life through enhancing sleep quality, productivity and mental calmness and relaxation.

KSM-66 is an herb extracted from Ashwagandha, a traditional Indian herb that has been cultivated and applied in ayurvedic medicine for centuries. KSM-66 has been clinically documented to  also enhance memory and cognition, increase endurance and strength, and improve sexual function health.

Conducted at Asha Hospital in Hyderabad, the study was a randomized and placebo-controlled trial with 64 participants who were normal and healthy, but each have a history of chronic stress. Throughout the study, an extensive battery of psychometric scales accessing different measures of stress were applied along with the effects it had on a participant.

"These results validate the benefits of KSM-66 Ashwagandha for healthy stress management," said Kartikeya Baldwa, director  for Ixoreal Biomed. "This study examined how KSM-66 functions as an adaptogen assisting the body in producing a normalizing effect for reducing stress and anxiety. The study used established stress assessment scales and serum cortisol levels as the focal measures. The group taking KSM-66 Ashwagandha supplements experienced a significant reduction in stress over 60 days when compared against a placebo group."

Ixoreal Biomed recently launched KSM-66 Advanced Ashwagandha in January for supplement, beverage and functional food manufacturers.
