MediHerb® Introduces Ashwagandha Forte to Provide Patients with Support for Temporary Sleeplessness, Stress, and the Immune System
Palmyra, WI – (January 12, 2021) – MediHerb, an Australian herbal products leader exclusively distributed in the U.S. by Standard Process, has announced Ashwagandha Forte: a new product that works as a rejuvenating tonic for the body and mind. It contains Ashwagandha root that has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic herbal preparations to help support the body’s natural immune system, build strength, promote healthy sleep, encourage alertness, and support a sharp memory. It also provides one of the highest amounts of withanolides in the MediHerb product range.
“What makes Ashwagandha Forte different than other Ashwagandha supplements is our quality,” said Kerry Bone, co-founder of MediHerb. “MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte is backed by quality testing processes to ensure batch-to-batch consistency. Testing occurs at various stages of production and follows strict criteria, so you can be sure every bottle of MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte is of the highest quality, containing the important constituents: withanolides.”
MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte is a single-ingredient preparation of Withania somnifera, also known as “Ashwagandha” or “Indian Ginseng,” which has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic herbal preparations. Each tablet of Ashwagandha Forte provides the equivalent of 4 g of dry Ashwagandha root, and is standardized to provide 10 mg of withanolides — the key active components in this herb. As a single-ingredient preparation, Ashwagandha Forte allows for flexible dosing options.
Ashwagandha Forte may benefit patients:
In an independent test conducted by a licensed analytical laboratory, MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte and a range of top-selling health care professional herbal supplements in the United States were tested to ensure the total withanolides in mg per tablet/capsule met the claims on the label. Of the five products tested that claimed withanolides, four failed to meet their label claims while MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte exceeded its label claim. MediHerb Ashwagandha Forte claims 10 mg per tablet on the label; in the test, it was shown to contain 13.3 mg of withanolides.
“For thousands of years, Ashwagandha has been used to replenish the body’s vital reserves and support the body when it is faced with fatigue, physical, and mental stress,” said Bone. “I’m glad to see this product added to our offerings.”
Ashwagandha Forte — along with all products from Standard Process and MediHerb — is available for purchase by health care professionals at standardprocess.com.
