Los Angeles, CA—Supplementing with KSM-66 Ashwagandha root extract for eight weeks led to significant improvement in sleep quality parameters in both healthy and insomniac patients, in a new study published in theJournal of Ethnopharmacology.

The study looked at 80 patients in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, stratified, comparative clinical study. Those taking KSM-66 had improved measures of sleep onset latency, sleep efficiency, total sleep time, and waking after sleep onset.

This is the fourth clinical study demonstrating the effects of KSM-66 on sleep quality, according to a press release on the topic.

The paper is published in a prestigious journal and is a valuable contribution to the scientific literature. It substantiates the use of Ashwagandha root extract as an adaptogen that helps reduce anxiety and promote restful sleep.”
