Supplements of ashwagandha root extract may improve muscle strength, size, and recovery

Withania somnifera (ashwagandha) is a prominent herb in Ayurveda. A study conducted by Indian Researchers and published on Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition examines the possible effects of ashwagandha root extract consumption on muscle mass and strength in healthy young men engaged in resistance training.
The researchers recruited 57 young men between 18 and 50 and had limited experience in resistance training. They were randomly assigned to receive either placebo or supplements of ashwagandha root extract (600 mg per day, KSM-66 Ashwagandha) for eight weeks. All the men trained during the intervention period and improvements were recorded in both groups. However, significantly greater improvements were observed in the ashwagandha root group, said the researchers.
Participants in the ashwagandha root group displayed significantly greater increases in muscle strength on the bench-press exercise and the leg-extension exercise, they said.
In addition, testosterone levels were also significantly higher in the ashwagandha group, compared to the placebo group.
