[Sponsored Content] KSM-66: Why Vertical Integration Matters

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root extract, has garnered significant attention over the past decade. According to the 2021 Herb Market Report, Ashwagandha ranks #7 in mainstream supplement channels and #4 in the Natural supplement sector, with consumers spending over $92 million in 2021. However, the increasing popularity of ashwagandha has caused supply chain strain, potentially leading to a growing demand-supply gap. To ensure consistency in the quality of an ingredient, it is crucial to collaborate with a supplier that manages the entire supply chain, from farm to finish.

At KSM-66, we tackle these challenges through our vertically integrated system, which guarantees quality control from seed to supplement. This holistic approach distinguishes our ashwagandha root extract in the market.

Sustainable Farming and Quality Control

Spanning across 1600 acres of organic fields, we employ sustainable practices in cultivating Ashwagandha. The tilling process commences in August, followed by the manual broadcasting of seeds. About fifty devoted workers oversee the crop’s health throughout the growth cycle. During the harvest season, a workforce of several hundred individuals meticulously collects roots, ensuring strict adherence to utilizing only roots to prevent common industry issues like adulteration with lower-cost leaf material.

Unique Extraction Process

Post-harvest, the roots undergo a detailed hand-crafted process involving washing, drying, and sorting. Subsequently, these roots are transported to our manufacturing facilities where we utilize a unique and environmentally friendly extraction process to produce the KSM-66 extract. Our facilities strictly adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and organic compliance standards, and hold over forty-three (43) certifications, guaranteeing stringent quality controls.

Testing for Purity and Safety

Within our laboratories, each stage of KSM-66 production undergoes comprehensive testing. From the raw roots to the final extract, we ensure purity, safety, and optimal concentrations of active compounds. Our testing protocols encompass microbial activity, heavy metal analysis, pesticide screening, and more, affirming our commitment to delivering the finest and the World’s Best Ashwagandha extract.

Tackling Botanical Adulteration

In an industry predominantly with botanicals that often fail to conform to their stated certificates of analysis, our vertical integration model stands out. By overseeing every facet of production, we guarantee that our botanicals remain true to their natural form, offering consumers the highest quality assurance.

This meticulous and integrated approach culminates in a product that significantly enhances consumers’ quality of life. KSM-66 transcends being a mere supplement; it embodies a promise of purity, potency, and ethical standards.

Commitment to Excellence and Future Outlook

Establishing a fully vertically integrated system demands immense dedication. However, this commitment ensures that our product consistently upholds the highest quality benchmarks. At KSM-66, we remain steadfast in our pursuit of delivering the World’s Best Ashwagandha, making substantial contributions to the wellness industry, and prioritizing consumer health above all else.
