Ashwagandha enhances athletes' endurance
Athletes who take 2 capsules with an extract of ashwagandha every day become fitter, according to a human study in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. Ashwagandha increases maximal oxygen uptake [VO2max], the most important predictor of endurance.
The researchers used KSM-66, a product of Ixoreal Biomed. The publication does not list Ixoreal as a sponsor, but despite this, supplement industry media quote Ixoreal extensively when reporting the new study. These quotes show that Ixoreal is well versed in what's in the scientific pipeline as far as KSM-66 is concerned.
