When Is The Best Time To Take Ashwagandha?
What is the best time to take ashwagandha is a pretty common question.
Depending on how you respond to the herb, a "best time" to take ashwagandha is subjective. However we don't suggest taking it right before bed or later at night.
Depending on how much ashwagandha per day you take, it can impact how much you take and when you take it.
For most people, morning and afternoon, preferably with a meal is usually the best time to takeashwagandha.
Taking ashwagandha in the morning
Taking ashwagandha in the morning is common and probably the most popular time for most users to take it. It's suggested to take it with breakfast or a snack.
The morning is a good time as it helps with being consistent to take it first thing in the morning and you don't have to think about it the rest of the day.
There are also effects related to lowering cortisol that can be beneficial for morning time dosing.
It can also help with morning energy levels, brainpower, and productivity.
Taking ashwagandha in the afternoon
Taking ashwagandha only in the afternoon is a good option for those who don't need or want to take it in the morning or evening.
Depending on how you respond, if it gives you an energy boost, can be great to have with lunch. Especially after your morning coffee has worn off.
Taking ashwagandha in the evening
This is probably the least common or advised time to take ashwagandha because most people feel a boost in their energy levels and mental awareness after taking it.
If you're one of those people, this can lead to not being able to fall asleep on time.
However some people do report feeling drowsier after taking ashwagandha, so take this advice as simple guidance and do what feels best for you.
Taking ashwagandha twice per day
Taking ashwagandha twice per day is also a common practice.
Though it's suggested that people who are supplementing with ashwagandha for the first time or are beginners, ease their way into taking more.
Taking one serving in the morning with breakfast and one in the afternoon with lunch can be good for spreading out the effects more evenly throughout the day.
The best time of day to take ashwagandha is different for every individual
People can have subjective reactions and experiences with ashwagandha that are unique.
Also depending on your lifestyle and your schedule, it can impact the best time to supplement with it.
People who works morning shifts vs evening shifts for example, have different sleeping schedules and productivity cycles.
There are common similarities that people tend to feel but the individual should decide for themselves what the best timings are for them personally to take ashwagandha.
