WHAT IS ASHWA ULTRA
A premium combination of natural ingredients formulated to support your body in rebalancing and recovering from daytime physical and mental strain
• wake up more rejuvenated & recharged

• stronger immune system
INGREDIENTS & HOW THEY WORK
ASHWAGANDHA is an adaptogen plant that has been used in Asian Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Adaptogen plants help your body to deal better with physical and mental stress and fatigue, leading to improved mood and sleep, and better performance. Athletes and physically active people use ashwagandha for its anabolic effects – to speed up muscle repair after workouts and boost lean muscle growth.
TURMERIC, also called curcumin, is used to reduce muscle soreness and inflammation, contributing to faster recovery. Turmeric is one of the most researched natural medicines, with thousands of studies done on a wide range of its benefits. The immune boosting benefits of curcumin are especially important for athletes, older people and those who experience mental or physical strain during the day.
TART CHERRY extract is a rich source of natural melatonin, an antioxidant that plays the key role in sleep and energy regulation. In addition to supporting rejuvenating sleep, tart cherries can speed up recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage and improve physical endurance and performance.
MAGNESIUM is a key player in the production of muscle energy. The type of magnesium in this formula is magnesium glycinate – the most absorbable, and one of the rare types of magnesium that reaches the brain, where it has a calming effect. Glycine is an amino acid that promotes sleep and is often used as a gentle alternative to sleeping pills.

Is Ashwa Ultra suitable for older people?
Ashwagandha, the main ingredient in Ashwa Ultra, is an Indian medicinal plant traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine for improving health and longevity and for treating many diseases and difficulties associated with ageing.
In Western evidence-based medicine ashwagandha has a proven impact on improving memory and cognition for healthy older adults and those with mild cognitive impairment. One study carried out in 2020 investigated the effects of ashwagandha in fifty healthy people who were aged between 65-80 years. Those who received ashwaganda reported significant improvement in sleep, mental alertness and quality of life were compared to those who received a placebo.
Other natural ingredients in Ashwa Ultra have proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation are one of the most important causes of aging and age-related diseases. One study on tart cherry extract for older individuals observed significant improvements in their bone metabolism and age-related bone loss, whereas turmeric was found beneficial for improving blood flow and oxygen delivery in the brain of older men and women.

I already regularly take creatine/hmb/magnesium supplements - can i take Ashwa Ultra alongside those?
Yes! Taken in the right dosage, Ashwa Ultra will work alongside other supplements and vitamins to improve your physical and mental performance.
IF ALREADY TAKING MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS:
3 capsules of Ashwa Ultra provide 105mg of elemental magnesium. If you are taking another type of magnesium supplement alongside Ashwa Ultra please check the label to make sure to not exceed the recommended maximum of 400mg total (elemental) magnesium. Please note that each type of magnesium contains a different amount of elemental magnesium – if, for example, you take 500mg of magnesium citrate that will provide you with only 80mg of elemental magnesium. 500mg of magnesium oxide supplement will provide only about 12mg of elemental magnesium etc. Please always check the labels.
