Ashwagandha Gummies Vs. Pills - What's The Difference?


Ashwagandha Gummies are a delicious way to get your daily dose of the superstar stress-relieving herb known as Ashwagandha. But perhaps you're curious as to how they differ from more traditional forms of supplements like pills or capsules?


In this article, we’ll be covering the main differences between Ashwagandha Gummies and capsules and the benefits of both so that you can feel confident in choosing the right supplement for your unique health journey!




Ashwagandha Capsules/Pills



Ashwagandha powder has a pungent, bitter flavor. For many people, capsules tend to have a higher potency than gummies as it allows them to take a higher dose since taste (or texture) isn’t a concern when you’re swallowing a pill. 

If you're passionate about only using an Organic Ashwagandha supplement, then our Ashwagandha capsules are the right choice for you since they contain 100% UDAF Organic Ashwagandha. 

We've also taken it a step further with added BioPerine (Organic Black Pepper Extract), a powerful bioenhancer shown to maximize absorption, making our Organic Ashwagandha root extract the best Ashwagandha supplement on the market for stress relief, better sleep, and inner peace! [1]

Our Ashwagandha capsules are made from pullulan, which is derived from a vegan starch known as amylose. They are incredibly easy to swallow, with zero aftertaste. 




Ashwagandha Gummies



Ashwagandha gummies offer many of the same benefits as Ashwagandha root capsules, but some people find them more convenient to take, especially if they struggle to swallow pills. Plus, they're a delicious treat you’ll look forward to every day, making it easier to ensure you take them consistently. 

Our Ashwagandha Gummy supplement is also made with pectin, a type of soluble fiber (instead of animal-based gelatin like many other gummy vitamins). 

Pectin has a range of health benefits too. It’s rich in soluble fiber, which may improve satiety, reduce belly fat and assist in the reduction of the “bad” cholesterol known as LDL while supporting a healthy gut microbiome! [2] [3]  [4]

The quantity of sugar found in gummy vitamins tends to be minimal compared to the average daily allowance. But if you're trying to avoid blood sugar spikes or you suffer from diabetes, Ashwagandha pills would be the better choice for you. 

Our Ashwagandha Gummy supplement contains a less potent dose of Ashwagandha extract per serving compared to our Ashwagandha capsules; however, it contains Vitamin D and Zinc for additional health-boosting benefits. 

So if you're also looking to support your immune function as well as reduce stress levels, then our Ashwagandha gummy vitamin with extra Vitamin D and Zinc is a perfect choice!



What should you look for in a gummy vitamin supplement?


  • No high fructose corn syrup: High fructose corn syrup consumption may be linked to the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, insulin resistance, high triglyceride levels, and metabolic syndrome. [5] [6]
  • No artificial colors or flavors: Studies have suggested a link between certain artificial food coloring and various health issues. [7]
  • Gelatin-free ingredients if you’re plant-based.
  • Standardized herbal extracts and bioavailable vitamins: Just because gummies are a tasty option doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be getting a potent dose of the herbal extracts and nutrients you need for maximum results!


At NutriRise, we have a wide range of top-quality gummies, all of which are free from gelatin, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial coloring and flavors to help you live a healthier lifestyle. 




What are the health benefits of Ashwagandha?



Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It's classified as an adaptogenic herb, which means it provides your body with resiliency to cope better with both psychological and physiological stressors. 

Adaptogens seem to work by helping to regulate the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis to support a balanced circadian rhythm for sustained energy throughout the day, stress relief, and better sleep. [8]

Used for thousands of years in the ancient Indian medicine paradigm known as Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is considered a rejuvenating herb or “Rasayana” thanks to its nourishing and restorative effect on so many bodily systems, including the thyroid and adrenal glands.

Sometimes it's also called Indian Ginseng; even though it isn’t related to the ginseng family, it likely gets this name thanks to its energizing properties. [9]

Here are some of the main research-backed benefits you could expect from Ashwagandha: 

  1. Lowered levels of the stress hormone cortisol [10]
  2. Reduced symptoms of stress and anxiety [10]
  3. It may improve low thyroid function [11]
  4. Improved sleep duration and sleep quality [12]
  5. Enhanced sperm health [13]
  6. Increased testosterone levels [14]
  7. Enhanced focus and cognitive function [15]


Everyone has their own unique needs and preferences, so we hope you are feeling more empowered to choose the right dietary supplement for your personal health journey!
