Can Ashwagandha Improve Your Workout Performance in the Fitness Center?
In the working world, many people work indoors in air-conditioned (AC) environments. Such sedentary activities can negatively impact the body's health due to lack of movement. Therefore, efforts should be made to keep the body actively moving, and one way to achieve this is by exercising at the gym.
According to data from Zippia.com, the global fitness industry generates over $87 billion in revenue. Additionally, 39 percent of Americans are gym or fitness center members, and the fitness industry will increase by 171.75 percent by 2028. In Indonesia, the total revenue in the health and fitness industry shows an annual growth rate of 8.75% (CAGR 2022-2027), resulting in a projected market volume of US$13.20 million by 2027.
These figures demonstrate the significant interest people have in fitness. However, the working habit causes us to lack the necessary stamina to engage in strenuous physical activities. Many people choose not to exercise after a full day of work, even though they likely stay with cold air conditioning throughout the day. According to The Economic Times, prolonged exposure to air conditioning can make the body more susceptible to illnesses.
To prevent these issues and encourage physical activity, individuals should consider consuming a specific shaker drink, particularly one containing Ashwagandha. This ingredient has many benefits, especially for boosting stamina and strength. It can be particularly beneficial for gym activities as it can increase muscle size.
Researchers are continuously studying the efficacy of Ashwagandha in improving strength and muscle size. One study found that participants experienced increased speed and strength. Another study observed muscle power can improve and reduce cholesterol levels. Some participants reported better sleep, although this study did not compare ashwagandha consumption against a placebo.
Ashwagandha can be included as one of the components of a shaken drink. It can be consumed before engaging in demanding activities such as fitness training. Not only Ashwagandha, but several other ingredients can also enhance your stamina, thereby improving your performance at the fitness center: Water, Sucrose, Fructose, Salt, Citric and anhydrous, Raspberry FI012948N, Maltodextrin, Ascorbic Acid, Coffee Flavor, Red Beet NC1628, Aspartame, Ethyl Maltol, Lactium.
