What the @#%&! is KSM-66?

Posted on August 27 2018

KSM-66 Ashwagandha® is a “keystone” ingredient for Inspired - that means it’s a compound we have personally tested, and found to work so well that we think of it as a core ingredient to build a product around.

It is one of the critical ingredients in Inspired's LGND, as well as the new 3MB3R, but what exactly is it, and why do we love it so much? Let's dive in! 




Ayurveda, translated to literally mean “life knowledge”, is the ancient study of longevity. For approximately 4,000 years, practitioners in the East have been using this incredible botanical to heal and improve health in a variety of ways.  In fact, throughout history, it has been commonly referred to as “life extender”.


Ancient Knowledge Meets Modern Science

In recent years, researchers have been studying Ashwagandha with great interest.

On the cutting edge of this research is Ixoreal, the manufacturers of KSM-66, the world's most potent ashwagandha extract. 

Dozens of studies have been conducted demonstrating the health promoting benefits of KSM-66, with 13 of these studies being randomized, double-blind clinical trials conducted on humans. This is a very big deal, because clinical trials are the scientific gold standard, and are very rare in the supplement industry. 

These clinical trials mean that KSM-66 is proven to provide you with the following benefits:

  • Reduces stress and anxiety, thereby improving quality of life. [1]
  • Improves male sexual function and testosterone production while still being perfectly safe for women. [2]
  • Enhances cardiorespiratory endurance, improving VO2 max in healthy athletic adults. [3]
  • KSM-66 promotes significant increases in muscle mass and strength making ashwagandha supplementation the ideal compliment to a resistance training program. [4]
  • KSM-66 improves female sexual function both mentally and physically. [5]
  • Promotes stress related related weight loss by lowering cortisol (a stress hormone) and improving thyroid function [6][10]
  • KSM-66 promotes improved cognitive function, enhancing both immediate and general memory, as well as improving executive function, attention, and information processing speed. [7]
  • Promotes powerful anti-aging effects by increasing telomerase activity which resulted in extended telomere length. Telomere length is considered the most  accurate marker of life extension. Ashwaghanda may extend life span up to 20 percent! [8][9]


Adapt and Overcome With Award Winning KSM-66

KSM-66 is a member of a very special class of herbs known as adaptogens. Adaptogens are natural compounds that have demonstrated a powerful ability to help the body adapt to stress and exert a normalizing effect on bodily functions.

This is incredibly important, as only by adapting to, and overcoming the stresses of modern life can you push your mind and body to achieve your goals.

That may sound bold, but think about this: the stresses of over training, a demanding career, difficult schooling, finances, political uncertainty and the like all add to the stress load on your body and mind.  

This chronic stress often leads to breakdown in performance, both physically and mentally. 

Inspired Nutra knows how incredibly beneficial KSM-66 is in keeping your body and mind performing flawlessly even in the face of the overwhelming stresses of modern society.

It’s why we love clinically proven KSM-66 and call it today's adaptogen.

And it is also why KSM-66 has been recognized across the world by being awarded several wellness industry accolades such as:
  • "Best Botanical Ingredient 2013" at Engredea/Natural Products Expo West, Anaheim

  • “Herbal Industry Leader”  by Society for Ethnopharmacology

  • “Innovative Ingredient of the year” by Panacea, Mumbai, India

  • "Product Innovation in Botanicals 2014" by Frost & Sullivan 


From the Lab to the Field
KSM-66 is used by some of the worlds top performers, from NFL athletes to Elite Crossfit competitors, to the world's top endurance and multi-sport athletes.
I am in constant search for the best fuel for my competition and recovery. I have been astounded at the effects that KSM-66 has brought to my program. Clinical trials are one thing, but real life race testimony is another. KSM-66 is now a must have for me and my athletes” Paul Romero, Adventure Racer of the Year and one of the world's top adventure race athletes 

The entire team at Inspired has personally used, and made great strides in performance thanks to KSM-66. 

I have personally seen my strength increase steadily over several months. After having a new addition to the family, sleep was all over the place, and stress was super high.  It was almost impossible to train with any consistency. As a result, I was short, cranky, and getting soft and flabby to be honest. When I started on LGND with KSM-66 my sleep quality improved, and I was more patient and just felt better is general. After 2 weeks I noticed when I looked in the mirror I was leaner and fuller, water retention was down and I felt stronger and had more energy when I was able to squeeze a workout in.  After 3 months, the results have just continued. In all honesty, LGND is the best natural product I have ever used.”  -Jerry T. 

I know that's an in-house testimonial, but it is 100 percent true. 

If stress has been sabotaging your results, and preventing you from getting to where you want to be, try KSM-66 Ashwagandha® in either LGND or the new 3MB3R.

Try LGND if you want to build serious lean muscle and drop fat while increasing performance with no stimulants, so you can stack with your favorite pre-workout or fat burner. 

Try 3MB3R if you want an intense energy and focus, while kicking up the lean muscle building and fat burning to the max.

    I am a naturopath and KSM-66 has indeed changed lives and brought happiness to so many of my patients. Lets not forget, ashwagandha is an adaptogen. It works differently on different people. For most of the world, KSM-66 would work wonders, but for a handful, there wont be any change. Nevertheless, I love KSM-66 Ashwagandha and prescribe it to every patient of mine.
