    there are absolutely no benefits in taking that herb, so why take it and waste your money, when simple multi-vitamins would be so much more helpful.??

    Withania somnifera, known commonly as ashwagandha,[2] Indian ginseng,[3] poison gooseberry,[3] or winter cherry[2] is a plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Several other species in the genus Withania are morphologically similar.[4] Although commonly used as a medicinal herb in Ayurvedic medicine, there is no conclusive clinical evidence that it is effective for treating any ailment

    Some supplements do have beneficial ingredients. Maybe a particular supplement doesn't help one person, but might help another person.

    The D.O.T. 5 panel only tests for specific drugs. Ash-whatever it is probably ain't one of them. But, you never know what else is in it. Just sayin'

    Ashesganda isn’t a drug tested drug and is extremely legal. Don’t worry about it. I use to buy it by the oz or half pound I forget, haven’t took it in a while. Or just get the organic India capsule version now. But it is a very good adaptogen and helps the body regulate physical and internal stress. Mainly what I do these days is Spirluina, Morniga powder, Hydrilla, ashwaganda on occasion, local honey. Lots of water. No meat no dairy.

    why are you concerned? Did you hear about the herb being a part of another illegal’s drug family tree?
