WHAT MAKES LIPO-GANDHA THE BEST:
The most potent and effective Ashwaganda supplement due to our advanced liposomal delivery system.
Patent-pending ZEAL liposomal delivery technology with 7x more absorption and retention
Combines high-potency standardised Ashwagandha root extract with a full spectrum whole herb extract for the highest yield of actives
With added Astragin®, a natural Astragalus-derived absorption enhancer.
We introduced ZEAL liposomal delivery technology recently with the launch of Lipo-C, our market-leading liposomal vitamin C. Lipo-Gandha utilises the same liposomal technology to provide an ashwagandha supplement with superior absorption and retention.
ZEAL technology is unique since it’s the only liposomal delivery system shown by electron microscopy to produce true liposomal nanospheres that retain their liposomal bilayer structure in powder form. Liquid liposomals typically produce less stable, larger liposomes that are not of uniform size. Liposomes that are smaller and show uniformity ensure maximum bio‑efficacy, potency, and bio‑availability of active ingredients.

PROVEN SCOPE OF ACTION
In Ayurveda, ashwagandha is considered a Rasayana: a herbal preparation that promotes both physical and mental health. Rasayanas are considered tonics and are administered to people of all ages: from young children for preventative health measures to the middle-aged and elderly for supporting longevity. Among the Ayurvedic Rasayana herbs, ashwagandha is the most prized and widely used.
Ashwagandha is further classified into a subgroup of Rasayanas called Medhyarasayanas, “Medhya” referring to the mind and mental capacities. Ashwagandha proves its worth as a Medhya as used for the prevention and treatment of cognitive disorders such as senile dementia and Alzheimer’s, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.
On this note, there are dozens of studies that have demonstrated ashwagandha’s ability to slow, stop, and even reverse neuritic atrophy and synaptic loss, the primary culprits of cognitive impairments due to these neurodegenerative diseases.
Ashwagandha also boosts GABA (a crucial neuro-transmitter in the central nervous system) mimetic effects by promoting the formation of dendrites.
As a general tonic, ashwagandha is beneficial to the brain and nervous system as a whole, improving both memory and cognition in both acute and chronic cases.
It is important to note that ashwagandha is a calming adaptogen, so while there are other plants that may offer similar benefits, ashwagandha is best suited for those that are prone to anxiety or nervousness.
According to Dr. Michael Tierra, a world-renowned specialist in herbal medicine, “ashwagandha should be considered as the premiere herb for all negative conditions associated with aging”.
It is often administered as a libido enhancer for both men and women, and as a means to increase sperm count. It is also valued as a general longevity tonic.
Ashwagandha is a natural immune modulator, which makes it beneficial for both hyper and hypo-immune conditions. Ashwagandha is also commonly indicated for autoimmune conditions that affect the muscles and joints, such as rheumatoid arthritis. It is suggested that this plant actually inhibits the autoimmune response altogether.
Although contraindicated for hyperthyroid conditions, ashwagandha is beneficial to those with hypothyroid conditions.
The primary medicinal properties in ashwagandha are from certain steroidal alkaloids and lactones in a class of constituents called withanolides. These constituents act as crucial hormone precursors which the body is able to, as needed, convert into human physiological hormones. If there is an excess of a particular hormone in one’s body, these plant-based hormone precursors take up residency in the hormone receptive sites (without converting), actively blocking absorption.
Essentially, these constituents act as an endocrine neighbourhood watch – constantly observing, only acting when necessary. This action is the heart of the benefit of adaptogenic tonic herbs such as ashwagandha and ginseng.
They regulate important physiological processes, as needed, specific to the individual. In this way, ashwagandha allows us to adapt to a variety of heightened stressful situations, in effect both boosting stamina and extending the window through which we can handle stimuli before being sent into fight or flight.
