A systematic review assessing the effects of ashwagandha for anxiety and stress response included five randomized controlled human trials. An analysis of results indicated that ashwagandha intervention resulted in greater score improvements than placebo in outcomes shown on anxiety or stress scales, with no observed adverse events.
SHODEN® INDUSTRY-LEADING CONCENTRATION SUPPORTS A MORE RESTFUL NIGHT SLEEP
Shoden® Ashwagandha Extract Shoden is an extract derived from the leaves and roots of the ashwagandha plant. This multi-patented ashwagandha extract is distinguished by its industry-leading concentration of 35% withanolide glycosides. Shoden has been clinically studied for its adaptogenic role in the stress response and for support of a more restful night sleep. Additionally, studies designed specifically to assess the safety of Shoden resulted in no adverse or toxic effects. Company Name’s Ashwagandha Complete contains 240 mg of Shoden per the two-capsule daily dose.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in adults (N = 60) was designed to assess the stress-balancing effects and the potential mechanism of action of Shoden. Test subjects given 240 mg of Shoden daily for 60 days demonstrated reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol and the steroidal hormone DHEA-S. There was also an increase of testosterone in male participants. Although other potential mechanisms of action were not investigated, the results of this study suggested ashwagandha has an attenuating effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activity in stressed individuals.
Results from a randomized, controlled trial in adult males (N = 57) with moderate fatigue who were given Shoden daily for 16 weeks indicated significant improvements in salivary levels of the steroid hormones DHEA-S and testosterone, which typically decline with age. Additionally, although insignificant, self-reported improvements in fatigue, vigor, and sexual and psychological well-being were documented via questionnaire. No significant difference was recorded for salivary cortisol levels; however, it should be noted that in previous findings serum rather than salivary cortisol was assessed.
To ascertain the effect of Shoden on restorative sleep, healthy subjects (N = 150) were given 120 mg of Shoden daily for 6 weeks in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. The overall quality of sleep was evaluated using a weekly questionnaire and an assessment of parameters such as sleep latency, sleep efficiency, and total sleep time as measured by a wearable sleep actigraphy diagnostic monitoring device. A significant improvement of sleep measures that define non-restorative sleep were noted in the treatment group when compared to placebo, demonstrating the positive effect of Shoden on encouraging restful sleep
Take one capsule once or twice daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional.

VITAMIN B1: THIAMINE
This vitamin is called thiamine which helps support adrenal function and calms and maintains a healthy nervous system. Thiamin is a cofactor for the metabolism of carbohydrates into energy and plays a key role in nerve transmission. The best food sources include sunflower seeds, flax seeds, navy and black beans. Soaking and sprouting these sources makes the B1 more bioavailable to the body.The most bioactive form of supplemental thiamine is benfotiamine (S-benzoylthiamine O-monophosphate), a safe, fat-soluble analog of thiamine.One study showed that it not only raised blood and tissue levels of thiamine at least five times higher than the water-soluble salt, but it also remained bioavailable after oral administration up to 3.6 times longer than thiamine salt. B Strong provides 20 mg of thiamine HCL and 20 mg of benfotiamine.
VITAMIN B2: RIBOFLAVIN
This is riboflavin which is a key part of many metabolic functions in the body. It is one of many nutrients required to recycle glutathione, which is one of the most important antioxidants in the human body. From a chemical standpoint, what B2 does is facilitate the conversion of oxidized glutathione into reduced glutathione. The best food sources include grass-fed raw cheese, almonds, grass-fed beef & lamb, oily fish such as salmon and pasture-raised eggs. The best form of riboflavin is riboflavin 5’-phosphate sodium (R5P) which is the activated form that has the highest utilization rate in the body. B Strong contains 20 mg of R5P per serving.
VITAMIN B3: NIACIN
This is niacin which is important in energy production. Two unique forms of vitamin B3 (called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, or NADP) are essential for conversion of dietary proteins, fats and carbohydrates into usable energy. Niacin is also used to synthesize starch that can be stored in muscles and liver for eventual use as an energy source. The richest food sources are tuna, chicken, turkey, salmon and grass-fed beef. B Strong contains 130 mg of niacinamide and 10 mg of niacin.
VITAMIN B5: PANTOTHENIC ACID
The most studied role of pantothenic acid in health support is its incorporation into a molecule called Coenzyme A (CoA). This molecule is arguably on the short list of the most important chemicals needed to sustain life. CoA occupies a central place in energy metabolism, acting to allow carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to be burned as fuel sources.B5 is also responsible for the production of sex and stress-related hormones including testosterone. Studies show B5 also promotes healthy skin with the ability to reduce signs of skin aging such as redness and skin spots. The best food sources include mushrooms, oily fish like salmon & trout and grass-fed raw cheese. The most common way this is supplemented is a form called pyridoxine HCl. The best supplemental form is pyridoxal-5’phosphate (P5P). In patients receiving pyridoxine HCl, only 33 percent responded with an increase in plasma pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (P5P); however, the level increased in all of the patients receiving P5P. B Strong Contains the BioActive P5P.
Vitamin B6 assists in the balancing of sodium and potassium as well as promoting red blood cell production. It is linked to cardiovascular health by decreasing the formation of homocysteine. Pyridoxine helps balance hormonal changes in women and aids the immune system. Lack of pyridoxine may cause anemia, nerve damage, seizures, skin problems, and sores in the mouth. It is required for the production of major neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. This is why it is implicated in the treatment of depression and anxiety.
VITAMIN B7: BIOTIN
Vitamin B7, more commonly known as biotin, helps support adrenal function, help calm and maintain a healthy nervous system, and are necessary for key metabolic processes. Biotin is nicknamed “the beauty vitamin,” because of its association with healthy hair, skin and nails. It may help people with diabetes control high blood glucose levels, too. This B vitamin is especially important during pregnancy because it’s vital for normal growth of the baby. B Strong contains 400 mcg of Biotin per serving.
VITAMIN B9: FOLATE
Bioactive forms include folinic acid, calcium folinate and methyl-folate. Never purchase folic acid Synthetic folic acid supplements are not natural forms and can be very toxic for certain individuals. 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is the most active form of folate and is especially important for individuals with MTHFR gene mutations. Folate deficiency is believed to be the most common vitamin deficiency in the world due to food processing, food selection, genetic polymorphisms (MTHFR) and intestinal disorders. In this formula, 5-MTHF is provided as Quatrefolic—the glucosamine salt of 5-MTHF. In vitro and in vivo studies have proven that Quatrefolic has greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. Folate is stored in small amounts in red blood cells (RBC), and RBC folate has been shown to be higher after supplementation with 5-MTHF compared to folic acid and placebo. Likewise, patients given 5 mg of 5-MTHF experienced plasma levels of 5-MTHF 700% greater than patients given folic acid . In B Strong, folate is provided as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), which bypasses metabolic steps to folate bioactivity. This is the safest and most effective form. B Strong provides 400 mcg per serving.
Always choose methyl-cobalamin and not cyanocobalamin. Methyl-Cobalamin is the most bioactive form of B12 that the body needs. This is essential for recycling homocysteine and the formation of methyl donors involved in cardiovascular function, sleep, blood cell formation, and nerve function. Most vitamin B12 supplements contain cyanocobalamin; however, the liver must first "detoxify" the cyanide molecule and attach a methyl group to form methylcobalamin from the cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is already in the biologically active, tissue-ready form. Human urinary excretion of methylcobalamin is about one-third that of a similar dose of cyanocobalamin, indicating substantially greater tissue retention. B Strong contains 400 mcg of methylcobalamin.
Choline is utilized by the body in a variety of ways including aiding nerve signaling, maintenance of cell membranes, transporting triglycerides from the liver, and as a constituent of nervous system tissues in early brain development. Choline is also a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter vital to nerve and muscle function, and a component of lecithin, which is critical to normal liver metabolism. Without adequate dietary intake of choline, there is a higher-than-normal risk of chronic liver damage and eventual liver failure. Choline is vital in forming very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) in the liver, which helps transport fat from that organ to cells throughout the body. Although VLDL is considered a "bad" form of cholesterol because high levels indicate an abundance of circulating triglycerides, if VLDL levels fall too low, fat will begin to accumulate in the liver. B Strong contains 30 mg of choline.
