      Jokes one them, I didn't need Ashwaghanda to feel this way.
      Though I do want a higher sex drive for the shits and giggles.

    DNA damage?

      The widely used medicinal herb Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) has been recently reported to cause liver damage. Withanone is a major metabolite of Ashwagandha. Withanone was found to cause DNA damage. Withanone forms adducts with amines and thiols.

      >The liver injury presented 2 to 12 weeks after starting ashwagandha with a cholestatic or mixed pattern of injury, jaundice and pruritus. Immunoallergic and autoimmune features were not prominent. Jaundice tended to be protracted but ultimately resolved without fatalities or chronic injury. Because commercial herbal preparations are often mixtures of herbs and nutritional products and can be mislabeled and contain unknown herbs and medications, it is not always clear whether the reported cases were due to ashwagandha and one of its components or to a contaminant. In several reported cases, however, the commercial product being taken was tested and found to have ashwagandha without other contaminants. Thus, clinically apparent liver injury attributable to ashwagandha appears to occur, but is rare.

      >Likelihood score: C (probable cause of clinically apparent liver injury).
      It's a nothingburger, I've been taking ash for over 3 months and had my bloodwork done last week, no sign of liver damage.

    I’ve been taking ashwagandha for 3 months now, every couple of days.
    My liver did seem to be affected, but I know that only because I have a bad liver inherited from my dad.
    The emotionless thing is real, took the edge off anxiety big time. This basically also improved my guitar playing.
    I’m less driven to do anything, it did turn me lazy.
    I didn’t knew about the dna damage and the liver damage.
    Also, my mom has thyroid problems that I might’ve inherited also.
    Finally found a good anxiety relief powder and it fucks with everything I’m weak at…

    For those of you thinking the emotionless side effect sounds cool, listen to this.
    >been taking ashwaganda for a year now
    >One day me and the gf were walking on the street
    >Cat comes out of no where and gets fucking splattered by a car
    >Immediately turn to horrified GF and say "Well, that's all folks!" in a bugs bunny voice
    >Get dumped later that night
    so yeah....just think twice before taking it.

      No wonder you got dumped. You used a Bugs Bunny voice instead of a Porky Pig voice with the stutter. Rookie mistake.

    Tried ashwauganda from Now Foods according to the dosage on the label for 03 months. It made me feel more relaxed, sleep slightly better. But it seems to affect my penis erection performance and sex-in-mind feelings negatively. I stopped taking them.
