We are pleased to present our new Supercritical Organic Ashwagandha. Tattva's
Herbs' Ashwagandha combines the wisdom of Mother Nature with the very latest
technology known as supercritical extraction. This state of the art technology
delivers a very pure extract that is both full spectrum and extremely
concentrated at the same time. It is so pure that you can actually smell the
qualities of the original herb in the extract, and you are greeted with this
aroma when you open a bottle. It is sweet and powerful. There is simply no other
extraction method so effective that you can actually smell the purity, fragrance
and essence of the herb. This is a testimony to the great care that goes into
the selection of the herbs and the supercritical extraction process itself. To
give you an idea of the potency and concentration of the extract, we can often
use as much as 200 to 250 pounds of fresh herbs to produce just one pound of
supercritical extract. All of the herbs are grown on organic farms and selected
with the greatest of care. The supercritical process produces an exceptionally
broad representation of the herbs' active constituents, which oftentimes
traditional methods of extraction cannot even begin to extract. Furthermore, the
supercritical process does not use any chemical solvents at all. Instead, it
utilizes safe and environmentally friendly carbon dioxide, the same carbon
dioxide that is found in your sparkling water.
Finally, the supercritical extract, post-supercritical extract (PSE) (a
water-soluble extract), and the raw whole herb are combined to create our herbal
formula. The finished product is superior in terms of both freshness and breadth
of active constituents. It delivers the full spectrum of the herbs with a
potency that cannot be surpassed. In addition, all of the herbs are
independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminates. The result is an
exquisite formula that delivers simplicity, purity and incredible potency all at
Supplement Uses: Ashwagandha is sometimes
referred to as Indian Ginseng (see study below). It has rejuvenative properties
that produce energy, which in turn helps the body to calm down and sleep. Thus
it helps the body address a stress-related condition rather than masking it with
Recent research points out that Ashwagandha may be the best herb to take to
maintain normal adrenal levels. Caffeine, nicotine, processed foods and
processed sugar all take their toll on the adrenal glands and leave the victim
fatigued, depressed and often bewildered as to what to do with themselves.
One of the special properties of Ashwagandha is that it will enhance Ojas.
In Sanskrit, Ojas literally means "vigor" and according to Ayurvedic theory, is
the most subtle, refined level of the physical body and, in fact, is its
essential energy. Ojas is the sap of one's life energy and is the end result of
healthy food which is properly digested. It is responsible for a healthy immune
system, reproductive processes, physical strength, lustrous complexion, clarity
of mind and sense of well-being. It allows consciousness to flow within the
body. With decreased ojas, we are less in touch with ourselves and more prone to
weakness, fatigue and to experiencing a sense of disharmony. Ojas depletion can
be caused by stress. Ashwagandha is known to relieve the body from these
stress-related weaknesses by specializing in the building of ojas and
rejuvenating the body, thus maintaining a healthy balance of physical energies.
Ashwagandha can also be a natural training aid and its use is becoming popular
in sports and athletics. When you train hard, you walk a very fine line between
overtraining and training just enough. Even in perfect circumstances, training
by itself is a stress on the body. To get the maximum performance from your
muscles, you require just the right amount of training coupled with appropriate
rest and recovery periods. Overtraining means too much cortisol which leads to
the consumption of muscle protein by the body and thus performance suffers.
Endurance athletes who train heavily, such as long-distance runners and
cyclists, are very prone to infections, as excess cortisol produced in response
to the heavy training load suppresses the immune system. It can also lead to
muscle and tendon tears because the muscles are weakened due to protein loss
under the influence of cortisol.

Safety: As with all dietary or herbal supplements, you should inform your
