Nutritional supplements are classified as a food by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Supplements do not require the same rigorous testing, review and approval that drugs are required to go through. Therefore, the statements contained in this document regarding Ashwagandha have not been reviewed and approved by the FDA. However, significant research has been done on this product by many universities, public and private business. We at 5-Point Wellness, LLC desire to share information about Ashwagandha, in order to educate our clientele to make well informed decisions for themselves.
