On that note, I've seen a study that had senior citizens supplementing with 2 grams of vitamin C per day and it effectively lowered their cholesterol levels.certainly one of the cheapest ways is through vitamin C, and I know YJ is fond of orange juice as an easy method of obtaining it, as well as simple vitamin consumption... you can go heavy on the C, good threads about it around. eating small meals frequently... not wasting time in the gym is important, so if you haven't done that streamline your training to make it as efficient and productive as you can... sleep more, lower stress... other than that I'm not sure that there are too many other cost effective ways...?
Absolutely!agreed! I have been taking this for 6 months and have noticed an amazing difference in mood and anxiety.
http://www.ergo-log.com/ashwagandha-strength-lean-body-mass-fat-percentage.htmlIf healthy people take 3-5 ashwagandha capsules every day, their muscle strength and lean body mass increase and their fat percentage decreases. In addition, taking this herb, which is used in the ayurveda tradition, reduces the chance of cardiovascular disease. Researchers at the ICMR Advanced Centre for Reverse Pharmacology in Traditional Medicine discovered this.
http://www.ergo-log.com/human-study-ashwagandha-boosts-testosterone-level.htmlIf infertile men take three capsules containing Ashwagandha – Latin name Withania somnifera – every day for a couple of months, their testosterone level rises by 17 percent and their sperm cell concentration increases by 167 percent. Doctors at Mahalaxmi Clinic in Mumbai, India write about it in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4658772/This study reports that ashwagandha supplementation is associated with significant increases in muscle mass and strength and suggests that ashwagandha supplementation may be useful in conjunction with a resistance training program.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2996571/Withania somnifera may therefore be useful for generalized weakness and to improve speed and lower limb muscular strength and neuro-muscular co-ordination. Terminalia arjuna may prove useful to improve cardio-vascular endurance and lowering systolic blood pressure. Both drugs appear to be safe for young adults when given for mentioned dosage and duration.

http://ergo-log.com/daily-600-mg-ashwagandha-helps-resistance-trainers-build-more-muscle-and-lose-more-fat.htmlThe percentage of fat declined in both groups, but the ashwagandha users lost more than the members of the placebo group. The researchers used the bioelectrical impedance method to measure the fat percentage. [We have our doubts about the reliability of this method, as we also do about the method the researchers used to measure muscle mass.]
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3573577/The treatment group that was given the high-concentration full-spectrum Ashwagandha root extract exhibited a significant reduction (P<0.0001) in scores on all the stress-assessment scales on Day 60, relative to the placebo group. The serum cortisol levels were substantially reduced (P=0.0006) in the Ashwagandha group, relative to the placebo group. The adverse effects were mild in nature and were comparable in both the groups. No serious adverse events were reported.
http://mindandmuscle.net/articles/ashwagandha-2/The results seen here are likely due to a variety of effects of ashwagandha, but its adaptogenic properties probably played a major role in its ability to increase speed and strength. Ashwagandha has many beneficial effects that make it worthwhile for athletes to supplement with, and the direct ergogenic benefits shown here make it an even more valuble addition to the supplement plan of any athlete
I have KSM 66 from Jarrows formulas. It’s an effective product. Definitely worth an 8 week run. Jarrows is 300 mg per cap with 120 caps per bottle. 600 mg is an effective dosewhat does everything think does it have to be the true KSM-66 or generic? also what is the best amount of mg to intake daily?
