    I've read from several different sites that ashwagandha is a good supplement that supports adrenal health and T4 production. I've never heard Peat mention anything about it though. Is it useful or just a waist of time?

    I have a lot of experience with it. It has its uses but can increase serotonin quite dramatically for some. It is very anabolic (and possibly androgenic) and calming. Its worth a try but be cautious with the serotonin side effects.

    Peat said that it was cholinergic, therefore not something to be used often. I noticed that it slowed my cognition, speech the next morning. It was the opposite of a nootropic.

    Ashwagandha makes me apathetic, anhedonic, unemotional just like a zombie. The androgenic effects are relatively strong for example higher strength output, but it's just not worth it there are other better options which don't turn you in something which is not human anymore.

    It didn't really mater how strong the dosage is it's more like a hit or miss.

    Few weeks of taking it has been positive for me so take that for what it's worth. Worth trying and play with doseage as that matters !

    -Higher libido
    -Physical energy
    -More centered

    It seems extremely hit and miss with people. Those of you who have success what extracts do you use? What products?

    Thanks for all the insight guys. I decided to give it a shot a few days ago, haven't noticed anything substantial yet. Due to it's thyroid enhancing properties I did lay off the desiccated thyroid I've been taking, just until I know how it'll affect me.

    Took my first 600 mg dose and immediately feel apathy. Serotonin hits me too hard, good waste of money!

    Greetings, yeah I tried it and got inconsistent results myself. Don't know why, maybe the serotonin, but my desiccated thyroid works much better.

    It is a nightshade plant, like tobacco, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and others. Each of which has effects on acetylcholine. Ashwaganda is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor primarily, and effects 5ht1A, and 5ht2A as well. It’s purported to lower cortisol, and raise GABA but not the best herb for this. I didn’t like the effects, I did not use the KSM 66. It increased agitation for me.
