Spinach is considered an excellent source of nutrients. It is rich in healthy compounds like carotenoids, flavonoids, vitamin C, vitamin E, and more. These components can help fight free radicals, support metabolism, and inflammation, and help to curb appetite by promoting the secretion of satiety hormones. As these activities are linked to metabolic disorders, regular consumption of spinach could help prevent metabolic issues like obesity, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and even cancer.

The beauty of ashwagandha's healing ability comes from the primary active natural substances in the plant known as withanolides. Withanolides are responsible for the anti-stress and anti-inflammatory properties of ashwagandha, and their concentration is highest in the roots.

For this reason, NutriRise uses only the roots of the ashwagandha plant. Containing the optimal concentration of the withanolides for adrenal and thyroid support and stress relief.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that has many proven health benefits, including:

  • Antioxidant properties
  • Natural stress reliever
  • Lowers cortisol levels for reduced anxiety
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Supports the immune system
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Supports brain function and helps prevent degeneration
  • Helps normalize blood sugar
  • Improves cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Enhances testosterone levels in men

Ashwagandha is an “adaptogenic” herb, meaning it helps your body adapt to stressful situations more healthily. It contains a compound called withanolides that decreases the chemical called tribulin in the brain. This chemical is responsible for feelings of anxiety. It also reduces the release of cortisol by your adrenal glands, lessening the sense of stress. Ashwagandha supplements can significantly improve chronic stress symptoms.

While you should check with your doctor before beginning any new herbal supplement, clinical research shows that daily supplementation is necessary to provide the desired reduction of stress and anxiety. Most studies last for two to three months and include consistent daily supplementation for best results.

In research studies, ashwagandha is generally well tolerated by most people. Since this herb has been used for thousands of years in ayurvedic medicine, its use and interaction with the human body are well documented. Excessive doses, such as taking multiple servings per day, may result in digestive problems like diarrhea, nausea, or even vomiting. For this reason, we recommend sticking with the suggested recommendations on the bottle and not exceeding this dose. Remember, more isn’t always better!

Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for healthy people without medical conditions. However, unless instructed by your doctor, do not take ashwagandha if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Or have hyperthyroidism

It can also interact with some medications. If you are taking medicine for diabetes, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, psychiatric disorders, or any immunosuppressant, please contact your doctor or pharmacist before taking an ashwagandha product.

Ashwagandha extract takes some time to begin working. Some individuals start to experience results in as little as two weeks. Others may take a month or longer to notice a difference. Most clinical research studies last one to three months minimum. We recommend consistently using ashwagandha for at least two months for best results. Remember that consistency is key. Try to take it every day at the same time, so you get in the habit and don’t forget.
No! Quite the opposite! The beauty of ashwagandha is that it helps your body create a healthier stress response. Stress and cortisol levels are two factors that lead to weight gain. When your body is stressed, your insulin levels are naturally higher to keep your body fueled. Insulin shuts off your fat-burning capability. As ashwagandha creates a healthier stress response in the body, many people find their fat-burning capability increases as insulin levels return to normal! Lowering stress levels can help you lose weight, so it’s a win-win!
There isn’t a right or wrong time to take ashwagandha. We recommend taking your dose once per day, but you can take them in the morning or evening if you prefer, as long as you are consistent and take them daily. That is the most crucial part. If you choose, you could take one in the morning and one in the evening, as long as you don’t forget!
One of the valued aspects of Ashwagandha is its stress reduction and anti-anxiety properties, which lead to improved sleep quality. Taking Ashwagandha and sedatives together might result in sleepiness and drowsiness. Therefore it’s advised to consult your healthcare professional before starting an Ashwagandha supplement if you are taking sedatives.
Yes. Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine as an adaptogenic herb. Known for its rejuvenating effects on the body, it helps strengthen the immune system and regulate hormones, reduces stress levels, and increases energy levels and general vitality.

Vitamin D2, is obtained from plant-based sources, and therefore it is vegetarian/vegan friendly. Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin because it is naturally produced within the body when exposed to the sun. However, depending on where in the world you live, or if you wear sunscreen, you are probably not producing the required amounts of vitamin D to support your health. Vitamin D is fundamental for your bones & joints, as it can interrupt and control inflammatory pathways in general. 

Vitamin D plays an important role in energy, mood, and sleep. Low vitamin D levels in the blood are directly related to depression and poor sleep, with lower sleep quantity and quality.

Zinc is vital for processes like cell growth and differentiation, antioxidant defense, anti-inflammatory support, collagen synthesis, and even the expression of hormone receptors like testosterone receptors, which play roles in both men's & women’s health. The body cannot store zinc, and we need to obtain it from dietary sources. People who do not have the appropriate amounts of zinc can have severe immune dysfunctions. Zinc is necessary for the proper function of vitamin D receptors - therefore, taking them combined in a supplement is very beneficial to overall health. 

Zinc is also fundamental for brain health, as it modulates neuronal activity, and it has been shown to reduce and prevent depressive symptoms.

Some medications and supplements can interact with ashwagandha. For safety, it’s essential to talk with a pharmacist or doctor who understands herbal supplement interactions to determine if ashwagandha is right for you. 

Some potential interactions include:

  • Any type of sedative
  • Blood thinners (for example, if you’re on treatment for atrial fibrillation or a blood clot)
  • Thyroid medications
  • Immune system suppressing medications
  • Blood pressure medication
  • Anxiety medications

Combining ashwagandha capsules with other herbal supplements such as kava, valerian, or St. John's Wort may cause excessive drowsiness and make tasks like driving or other activities dangerous.
