I often find plastic-free items to stock based on what I look for myself and when trying to find a brand that creates great quality supplements that are made in the UK, has vegetarian casing AND is plastic-free - I had some pretty high criteria to tick off.
That's when I came across Wild Nutrition and their range of products are next level amazing and excel in all of these areas with their supplements coming in glass jars without a plastic seal and their aim is to have totally compostable packaging by 2020 - how good is that!
I am now stocking their range of FOOD-GROWN® supplements that pack in all the good stuff without the nasties that can be found in other brands.
KSM-66 ASHWAGANDHA PLUS
This KSM-66® Ashwagandha Plus provides 500mg of ashwagandha root with Food-Grown® Magnesium to support the body's resilience. Ashwagandha is an exceptional Indian herb traditionally used to support the body's resilience to physiological and psychological demand. KSM-66® Ashwagandha provides exceptional quality, organically certified ashwagandha without the use of solvents or alcohol during the extraction process. Over 11 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have been conducted on KSM-66® and supported its use in anxiety, depression and stress as well as statistically significant improvements in memory, cognition, immunity, sports endurance and recovery as well as promoting libido in both men and women.
"KSM" connotes the name of the geographical region in Rajasthan, India where the organic farms of ashwagandha are located. This is the place where best quality ashwagandha roots are grown/cultivated, rich in Phyto-actives. "66" connotes the number of attempts it took in developing this ingredient to its final shape today, in a time-span of 12 years of research and development.
KSM-66 contains >5% withanolides when quantified using HPLC. Therefore, 300 mg of KSM-66 would contain at least 15 mg of withanolides.
It's important to have the correct balance of withanolides. KSM-66's unique 'whole' formulation balances out the plant chemistry, ensuring withanolides content is never in excess.
While ashwagandha is a member of the nightshade (plant) family, the issue with nightshades for some people, is primarily in response to the steroidal lactones withanolides ‘A’. These are found in greater amounts in the leaves rather than the root. Therefore, by using just the root, there is a lower risk of cross-reactivity. Studies also emphasise the immune-supporting properties of ashwagandha via cortisol modulation.

WHY IS FOOD-GROWN® DIFFERENT?
Synthetic mega-doses of a specific vitamin that hit your gut in one go will always struggle to be absorbed in their entirety whereas FOOD-GROWN® supplements pass into your system with greater ease. You get the same benefits without the need for the brute force of 100mg of chemically isolated Riboflavin. For example, one study showed that FOOD-GROWN vitamin C was 1210% more bioavailable than isolated ascorbic acid*
Over 50 independent studies support our claims and many influential experts and practitioners place FOOD-GROWN® supplements as the most effective product of its kind. Then there are our customers and the clients of nutritional therapists who use our products because they feel and recognise the difference that FOOD-GROWN® supplements make to their health.

"We are the UK’s original maker of FOOD-GROWN® supplements and we're convinced that our approach to supplementation - that places greater emphasis on how nutrients are delivered into your system - is the best. While the market is flooded with high-dosage tablets of compacted white powders, FOOD-GROWN® supplements are made using a unique process in which we add and grow essential nutrients in real, raw food - which means that your body absorbs the nutrients just as they would a piece of fruit or vegetable."
