So I received my KSM66 from NutraBio today and am eager to see its benefits as I am a bit of a stressball at times. I have never tried dosing this by itself and had a question on when to actually take it. The directions state to take it between meals, and Examine.com states to take it with food. Does it make a big difference on when I take it? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
Does it make a big difference on when I take it?
I’d say no. Typically, the dosing for KSM-66 is recommended as 300mg in the morning and 300mg at night, although 600mg at one time with a meal in the middle day isn’t a big deal.
It’s important to note that KSM-66 is the “energizing” standardization of ashwagandha, so after trying it out for a few days and you find that this is true for you, maybe skip dosing before bedtime.
Ohh okay, was not aware of the energizing standardization, thanks Dan! Makes sense to hit the 600mg at lunch then. Thanks for the info brother!
It’s a great adaptogen - enjoy! And to clarify energizing, I do mean in contrast to the more “sedative” Sensoril, definitely not a stimulatory effect like from caffeine, etc. You might also like dosing all 600mg in the morning alongside a meal, just play with the dosing.
Does dosing time for something like Rhodiola matter as well?
well its a 600mg tablet, so a one and done deal! I will try it out around breakfast to start and see how it goes, thanks!
Rhodiola does have acute anti-fatigue benefits, which can make bedtime dosing unideal.
I take it after i get off of 12 hour shifts so that i don’t just die as soon as i get home.
