Hi guys,


Considering the rave reviews here, I decided to add ashwagandha (Jarrow KSM-66) to my stack, i.e. fish oil, vit D3, Vit K2, NAC, spirulina.


It has been helpful in regards to anxiety and overthinking so I’d like to keep using it, however I encountered two side effects:


  • pimples (consider that I’ve never suffered from acne)

  • an increase in irritability, lower level of patience


Could it be related to ash’s effects on testosterone? What can I do to fix these issues? I’ve also read that extended use of ash could potentially lead to decrease in motivation, and anhedonia.


Did you experience this problem? Maybe should I pair ash with another adaptogen, or something “stimulating” such as B complex?


Thanks everybody!
