Ashwagandha for Weight Gain
This time, I have come up with the results from the popular ayurvedic herb Ashwagandha. It is one of the most searched ayurvedic product for weight gain and there are many bloggers and influencers who had great words to share about it. And then, I knew I had to try it for sure.
I thought of getting the Ashwagandha capsules at first and I was about to buy them but then I changed my mind and decide to get it from a local store where they deal with ayurvedic plants and related products. The reason why I did that is that I felt, this will give me a better version of Ashwagandha at the best price. Thankfully, it did. Let us see how Ashwagandha side effects and weight gain.
It was my mom who bought me this pack of Ashwagandha powder from the store. When she reached home, she said that she has taken it a long time before for some of its benefits which she doesn’t remember now. Since the powdered form was not available then, she had to get it, clarify it in a 2-way process 3 times. The process of clarifying was actually surprising for me. she had to put it in the boiling milk for some time, then it was to be dried completely in the sunlight. This product was to be repeated for 3 times or so.
When I had a look at this package, it said that the Ashwagandha has been purified in cow’s milk as per Ayurveda.
N.B: Try to source the best ashwagandha you can get your hands own. Do not fall for the high price tags. Better to believe the word of mouth of other customers of a brand than to fall for the high price tags.
How I took Ashwagandha for Weight Gain:-
I use 2 teaspoons of Ashwagandha powder to a glass of milk (200ml). I used sugar on and off.
My Experience with Ashwagandha for Weight Gain:-
The powder seems to be just like Horlicks. The first day I took it, it even smelled like Horlicks for me. It is so bitter in taste. I took 2 teaspoons of the ashwagandha powder in a glass of milk. The packaging of this bottle asks to cook ashwagandha in the hot milk for some time. I tried it both ways in this course of 7 days. Cooking it for 2 minutes in the milk makes it easy to drink. Because in the other case, the powder settles in the bottom and does not get completely dissolved.
For the first two days, I stirred in a teaspoon of ghee as well. But then I took it with milk alone (since my lips are sensitive to oily things and develop cystic acne)
On the 7th day, I couldn’t take the Ashwagandha milk because we had to use the milk for some other purpose.
Tuesday – 50.5 kilograms
Wednesday – 51 kilograms
Thursday – 51.5 kilograms
Friday – 52 kilograms
Saturday – 51.5 kilograms
Sunday – 51 kilograms
Monday – 51.5 kilograms
In a course of 6 days, I gained 0.5 kgs by the end of it. You can see that I have reached 52 kilograms somewhere in the middle, which came out to be quite shocking to me. I weighed myself around 5 times just make sure my eyes are true!
Side-effects of Ashwagandha on me:
I never thought this could give me any sort of side effects. But it did. I had a bloated stomach for the initial 3 days. It was very difficult to handle this time it was sometimes painful as well. I have NEVER had an issue like this before, so I give all the credits to Ashwagandha 😛
