KSM-66 Ashwagandha has attained organic certification in accordance with the National Organic Program (NOP) technical standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It has been certified as "100% Organic" and can be now utilized in organic supplements and foods seeking to claim an organic product.
"We're pleased to offer this organic certification as another advantage of KSM-66 Ashwagandha," said Kartikeya Baldwa, director for Ixoreal Biomed. "For companies waiting for an organic ashwagandha ingredient, KSM-66 is now compliant and available to manufacturers seeking the mind and body benefits of ashwagandha."
The certification was verified by OneCert Asia Agri Certification in compliance with the USDA standards. In addition to the U.S. standards, KSM-66 also meets requirements and is certified under the India organic program.
KSM-66 has been evaluated in five scientific studies with an additional two studies ongoing. These studies examine the role of KSM-66 for healthy stress management where it exhibits a normalizing effect against common physical, chemical and biological stressors.
In addition to being certified organic, KSM-66 is self-affirmed GRAS and is the only high-potency ashwagandha with a neutral, bitterless taste. Other ashwagandha extracts employ hydro-alcoholic extraction processes, yielding a rather bitter extract and detracting from its whole-herb character.
To learn more about KSM-66 Ashwagandha, representatives from Ixoreal Biomed will be hosting the new KSM-66 Rejuvenation and Stress-Relief Center (Booth #23055) during the SupplySide West Expo, November 7-8, in Las Vegas.
