How to take ashwagandha capsule for health benefits? Should I wait 1 hr after breakfast and then take the capsule with water?

You should wait for 1 hr after breakfast and then take the capsule with water the lowest effective dose recorded is 300-500 mg daily. Again, it's best taken consistently and will work better the longer you take it over time. The therapeutic dose is 6,000 mg per day, divided into three doses of 2,000 mg.
