Another reason to move to Israel.
So you can get Kosher vial of ginseng
That gives alot of endurance .
30yrs ago, before kosher, yes this
gives mucho endurance, no anxiety.
Helps alot with staying focused.


How long does it take for the benefits of ashwagandha to start kicking it? Can anxiety and depression start improving a lot after the first few days or it takes a few weeks?


Where can I buy Ashwagandha in Israel?

Dr. Reuven Rosenberg

I've been using it for 17 years in practice with usually excellent results.


Esther Rachel, I totally agree... except I ordered it from Amazon! lol
But the extra focus is completely true. I'll post the link to which one I get in a separate comment.


Chaim, I notice that I start to have more energy within an hour of taking it. I also take a teaspoon of coconut oil at the same time, so together they give me a serious supercharge. I feel that it gives me a constant level of just feel-good energy. It doesn't give a spike of energy like caffeine does, and it also doesn't leave you with a low after it wears off. It's a nice steady lift, and I also find that I feel very mentally clear when I take it. My mind just works better. What can I say? It's a really nice feeling.
About your second question, I'm not sure how long it takes for anxiety and depression symptoms to start improving. I think it just varies based on the severity of the person's symptoms. In my case, I can't remember exactly when my anxiety started to improve, but I would say definitely within a few months. Now I feel like if I were to stop taking it, I would likely go back to anxiety mode when I get overtired. If you start taking it, let me know how you're doing, and if you see any changes. Thanks for writing in!


Debra, I'm not sure - I get mine from Amazon! Here's what I order:

Now I see that they have a new label, but it's still the same ingredient. So I'm not sure if it's just better marketing they're trying to do, or whatever. Here's the new bottle:

Please let me know how you're doing if you start taking it!


Dr. Rosenberg, that's wonderful to hear, and so encouraging for our readers! Can you please elaborate on how you've seen it help your patients? Thanks so much!


I don't see any Kosher certification label on the bottle.


Kosher certification on the label?


Boroch, I'm not able to post a picture in the comment forum, so send me an email and I'll forward you the picture of the kosher certification I took from my bottle. It's OU certified. racheli@breslev.co.il

i have known the benefits of this herb for a long time and never tried it. I decided to have a go. My reason for taking it was to lower the inflamation in my body and also my blood sugar and blood pressure. My blood sugar went down and i started to feel lightheaded. My blood pressure has not changed. I started feeling a tightness in my chest but did not connect it to anything. I was not sure where it was coming from. I found my focus getting worse. In fact, I got lost on my way to the chiropractor and when I went to turn around on the interstate, I forgot to turn around. My thought process continued to deteriorate. I got to the point that I didn,t know what I was reading and was unable to study. Last night I decided to do a little more research. to begin, I found only the good side effects. Digging a little deeper, I found other people that have had the same problems and more. I didn't take any this morning and hope it will get out of my system soon. My husband is taking it with no problems. I have a tendency to have the rare side effects to meds and also herbs. Just thought it should be shared so that other people will know just incase they start having similar problems. Aside from those of us that are gifted at confusing the medical community, it is a good herb.


I'm so sorry to hear that, Lea! I have not heard of such side effects, but as you said, you are a rare one. lol I once told a woman about silica for tightening the skin, and she said she got palpitations. I take it every day with no side effects. It's interesting how people can react so differently to the same thing. Well, at least your husband is taking it. I hope he starts to feel a difference in his stress and energy level. Keep in touch!
