Take Control of Your Mental Health with a Better Mood + Less Stress and Irritability

A recent study revealed that occasional anxiousness and stress are higher than ever on the list of reasons people take supplements. Not surprising, right?   

We’re all looking for ways to take the edge off these days…to feel better equipped to weather life’s challenges and simply feel good! Many of us do that with regular exercise, getting adequate sleep, and eating well, all of which can make a big difference. And many have already tried popular herbs like ashwagandha…but didn’t experience the relief they had hoped for. But there is hope! Ashwagandha, like so many herbs, works best when paired with complementary nutrients—especially those with solid clinical backing. Thanks to the research team at Whitaker Nutrition, that precise combination now exists, and it’s something we can all count on each day to achieve the peace and mental calm we crave.

What we mean when we say Beyond

Introducing Beyond Ashwagandha, a once-daily supplement that goes well beyond traditional ashwagandha supplements for more complete and reliable relief from life’s many stressors. Beyond Ashwagandha starts with clinically validated Sensoril® Ashwagandha, which is the superior form of this stress-relieving wonder plant. We then added two stress-fighting companions: Mood-brightening Clear’Saff™ saffron and calming L-theanine, for stress relief, an overall improvement of mood and well-being, increased mental acuity, better sleep, and so much more. We think it’s the perfect mood-boosting trifecta!

Only Beyond Ashwagandha combines these three premium herbs to bring you all of these benefits:

  • Support for mood health
  • Improved overall emotional well-being
  • Decrease in elevated levels of stress, nervous tension
  • Reduced fatigue and irritability due to stress
  • Support for healthy sleep quality
  • Balanced healthy serum cortisol levels
  • Better mood and help with reducing occasional anxiousness
  • Support for a relaxed mind

When ordinary stress relief just won't do

You may have read the news, ashwagandha sales are through the roof! And for good reason. Many have discovered this adaptogenic herb has multiple big-time benefits. But just any old ashwagandha is not good enough for our standards. We insisted on Sensoril Ashwagandha because it’s a key ingredient that’s been evaluated in multiple human clinical trials and possesses some of the highest levels of stress-fighting “bioactives” currently available—far exceeding those of conventional root-only ashwagandha extracts.

Thanks to these bioactives, Sensoril Ashwagandha tackles the underlying sources of stress by helping maintain healthy cortisol levels and alleviating emotional symptoms including occasional anxiousness and fatigue. Bottom line: It will help your entire body physically feel better—from head to toe.

Don’t let life get in the way of…living!

Life can throw a lot our way, making us stressed, moody, and anxious. That’s where saffron comes in, which has been used traditionally for many centuries for its numerous health benefits. Beyond Ashwagandha includes the very highest quality version of this fragrant jewel of an herb, clinically validated Clear'Saff saffron extract. We chose it for its well-researched ability to improve stress, fatigue, and occasional anxiousness. And, as a bonus, it also helps support your sleep, cardiovascular, and eye health.

Keep calm and carry on

Finally, we included one of nature's most effective natural relaxants, L-theanine, found in green tea and some mushrooms, but otherwise rarely found in nature. It works by raising your body's levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid, commonly known as GABA, and higher GABA levels mean higher alpha-wave activity in the brain—which is exactly what you need to stay calm yet focused. In addition to a large body of laboratory evidence, a recent human clinical trial showed subjects consuming L-theanine were more relaxed and able to respond to stress.

We’ve got a lot of choices when it comes to maintaining good health, and it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the options. Beyond Ashwagandha was created to make reducing stress as stress free as possible. Three stress-busting ingredients with impeccable science and quality backing them, all in one easy-to-take vegetarian capsule a day. There’s no easier decision to make when it comes to living a less stressful, more rewarding life.

Science and Quality

Ashwagandha helps you cope with stress

As an adaptogenic herb, ashwagandha helps your body adapt in times of stress. Sensoril Ashwagandha has been shown in a clinical study to reduce occasional anxiousness while also balancing healthy cortisol levels—the key “stress hormone” that can cause chain reactions in your body and have far-reaching effects.

Participants in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study saw a reduction in serum cortisol levels, stress, anxiousness, fatigue, and irritability due to stress, after just 60 days. Plus, an improvement in sleep quality, physical mobility, mood, and concentration with extended use. Sensoril also showed support for healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides, and more.1

Saffron for less stress, better mood and better sleep

Saffron is a popular Middle Eastern herb with strong antioxidant properties. It’s derived from the herb Crocus sativus and has been used as a dye and flavoring agent for many centuries. There are several studies showing its support for mood health, starting in just one week after supplementation.

In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 128 healthy subjects with self-reported low mood were asked to assess the efficacy of saffron on mood, stress, and sleep quality. Subjects took either 22 mg saffron, 28 mg saffron, or placebo daily for 4 weeks. (Beyond Ashwagandha has 30 mg.) After 4 weeks of 28 mg of saffron supplementation, tension, fatigue, vigor/energy, and total mood disturbance were significantly improved compared to the placebo. Bottom line? Saffron supplementation is effective in improving low mood and stress in otherwise healthy adults.2

L-theanine for a relaxed, yet alert mind

In a recent study, participants were evaluated on the effect of 50 mg L-theanine (Beyond Ashwagandha has 200 mg.) in increasing activity in the alpha frequency band (alpha-1), which is associated with less stress and anxiousness. Using electroencephalography (EEG) readings, participants showed a greater increase in alpha-1 activity across time in the L-theanine condition relative to placebo. Altogether L-theanine was shown to contribute to a relaxed, yet alert feeling at rest.3
