I love finding clinical trials that support why I choose the ingredients that we use in HerbWorks formulas. I’ve always loved KSM-66 ashwagandha and that is why we use it in our brain formula TianChi. Now a new clinical trial published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements give me another reason for loving it.
A double-blind randomized, placebo controlled trial has shown KSM-66 significantly improved immediate memory and cognitive functioning. Scientists hypothesized it works as a acetyl-choline-esterase inhibitor, meaning it helps the brain retain more acetylcholine. This allows the choline and other acetylcholine precursors in TianChi to work even better at helping the brain process information.
