How to Take Our Ashwagandha Spagyric Tincture

We get a lot of questions regarding how to take our Ashwagandha tincture. We’re here to answer your questions! 

(Check out the video below if you would rather listen to founder Jeff Johnson talk about it.)


Q: First of all, what is the proper method of consumption? 

A: We recommend putting it under your tongue for just a moment before swallowing. This is the the most effective method for rapid absorption into your system. If you don’t enjoy the taste, it’s ok to put it in a beverage, water, tea, smoothie, etc. just incorporate a little bit more than you would normally take under the tongue.


Q: How much should you take?

A: It varies from person to person, but we suggest starting with 1/3 to 1/4 dropper full 1-2 times per day for day time use. If you are using it before bed to promote restful sleep, start off with 1/2 dropper full, and if you feel like you need more try two 1/2 droppers. Be aware that if you're extra sensitive it is possible to take too much and have it over stimulate you, making it actually more difficult to sleep. If that is your case you may want to take even less than a half dropper. So start small, listen to your body, and increase as needed. 


Q: When should you take it? 

A: You can take it in the morning, throughout the day, and in the evening. If you are prone to anxiety, have a lot of stress in your life, we suggest daytime usage. If you want to sleep like an angel, or a baby, or even a baby angel, take some shortly before bed. If you have all of those things, take it in the morning and the evening! Some prefer to use our Hero’s Blend in the morning, as it can be more energizing and focusing.


Q: What if you're sensitive to alcohol?

A: Try putting it in hot tea or coffee (above170°f) in the morning, or in a small amount of hot water any time of day and the heat will quickly evaporate the alcohol.

The answer is a bit complicated. Some of the western literature advises against taking Ashwagandha while pregnant or breastfeeding; however in India’s tradition of Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is recommended to pregnant and nursing mothers to grow a healthy and strong baby, and to assist the mother. That being said, as we are not licensed healthcare practitioners, we suggest speaking with your midwife or nurse/physician. We are happy to discuss Ashwagandha with your health provider, if you like, to answer any specific questions.

Same question as above, I would love to know if this is safe for breastfeeding moms!


Is this safe to take if you’re a breastfeeding mama?
