Ashwagandha capsules are a natural adaptogenic formula that is increasingly gaining ground in endurance sports. Increasing VO2max through improving stress response has proven to be the best strategy for long-term progress in most endurance sports - especially those requiring a high functional threshold.
Ashwagandha capsules have an impact both on the increase in power and VO2max. In one of the relevant studies, a group of healthy men gained significant muscle mass and body strength after taking 600mg of Ashwagandha a day for eight weeks. Based on the new discoveries, endurance athletes - cyclists, triathletes, swimmers, soccer players, runners - are increasingly opting for it. Another study conducted on a group of 50 healthy athletes showed that Ashwagandha capsules also significantly increase VO2max in the long run.
In addition to the above mentioned advantages, extensive research has shown that Ashwagandha capsules improve testosterone to cortisol ratio during sports activities (testosterone-cortisol ratio) and reduce muscle inflammation and fatigue. This relationship between stress and sex hormones is key to optimal strength and regeneration. Stress and sex hormones are derived from the same precursor, therefore, improving the stress response during exercise is a goal of every serious athlete. Chronically high levels of stress hormone also correlate with the presence of inflammatory parameters which, in turn, negatively affect both regeneration and the immune system.
