GoliAshwagandha Gummiesreview

We weren't sure what to expect from this hip/ancient ayurvedic herb of legend. But Goli Ashwagandha Gummies are pure adaptogenic magic.

Overall

Potent, active calm and subtle sense of well-being, both physically and mentally. These are honestly our favorite new gummies of 2021.

Effectiveness

Goli claims these are the "world's most powerful Ashwagandha gummies". We've tried several different brands and so far, these have been far and away the most potent.

Tastiness

Tastes like a Fruit Roll-Up with a hint of Lucky Charms 🤤

Bang For Buck

At $19 for 60 gummies, these are pretty affordable. It's cheaper to buy Ashwagandha pills, but where's the fun in that?

🚨 New gummy alert: Goli just released Superfruits Gummies!  We just ordered some, so we haven’t tried them yet, but we did a little writeup on them here!

👉 Also, heads up: get 15% off at checkout from Goli through June 30th!

Just launched into the galaxy in a striking blue bottle: Goli Ashwagandha Gummies! The first sister gummies to Goli’s now-legendary Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies.

There was plenty of speculation on the internet that Goli’s second offering would be a multivitamin, so the Ashwa gummy is a little out of left field!

But when we think about it for a second, it actually makes a lot of sense.

Both the Apple Cider Vinegar and the Ashwagandha gummies are focused on single ingredients that have a variety of potential benefits. In the case of ACV, these include appetite management, digestion help, energy support, and more.

In case you’re not familiar with this hip new/ancient adaptogenic herb of Ayurvedic legend, Ashwagandha has been popping up in everything from Four Sigmatic’s Mushroom Coffee to Moon Juice’s Cosmic Cream moisturizer.

Adaptogens are herbal or other plant-based supplements that are generally said to help your body resist stressors.  And Ashwagandha is the Queen Adaptogen herself.

Ashwagandha, Goli claims,

has been clinically proven to:

  • Help reduce stress and tension
  • Help promote memory and cognitive function
  • Support a healthy heart function
  • Support endurance, strength, muscle size
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Support sexual function
  • Support healthy weight management
  • Support immune health

Goli has partnered with one of the most premium Ashwagandha suppliers, KSM-66, and they’ve got a good rundown of clinical trials that have studied the various effects* of this multifacted herb.

Also included in this gummy is 12.5 micrograms of vitamin D2.  We’re not 100% sure why Goli chose this as the pairing here, but we’re always here for a vitamin D gummy.

First Impressions

We got the gummies!  It only took 2 weeks for them to arrive after we ordered them 😹, but that’s understandable: Goli is reportedly selling 200 bottles of these gummies per minute.

We’ll update this review once we’ve taken them regularly enough to get the full Ashwa Experience, but here’s our initial impressions:

These work.

Wow.  We really weren’t sure what to expect, given the multi-faceted potential effects of Ashwagandha.  Would we be energized?  Would we be chill?

Plus, our experience with the Calm Sweet Calm gummies was extremely subtle, if not unnoticeable.  So we kind of assumed it would also be hard to say if the Golis had any effect.

But within an hour or two of first taking these, we noticed a profound but gentle aura of relaxation.  We just felt good, both physically and mentally.

Relaxed, peaceful, like that feeling of accomplishment after a long day.  An overall feeling of well-being and active calmness.

If you have experience with supplements or herbs, you know there’s a pretty unmistakable sense of something working on you.  And for us, at least, the effect is extremely noticeable, without being overwhelming.

We’ve been taking these for a few weeks now, and the experience has been the same every time.  We’ll be able to articulate this a little better after we go through the whole bottle, but for now let’s just say:

Honestly, we’re kind of blown away by these!

Tasting Notes

The Goli Ashwagandha gummies are delicious.  There’s something about these that remind us of childhood, and it hit us like a bolt from the blue: these are pure Fruit Roll-Up in gummy form.

It’s kind of that generalized “berry” flavor, hitting the juicy and sweet notes with an underlying fruity tartness, ending with a faint aftertaste of pink Lucky Charms milk.

Goli vs. other Ashwagandha gummies

Funnily enough, HUM just released their Ashwagandha-based Calm Sweet Calm gummy a few days before Goli’s announcement!

Where Goli seems broadly focused on the multifacted nature of the potential effects, HUM is emphasizing the chill, augmenting their gummy with one of our all-time favorite amino acids: l-theanine.

And they’re not playing around: the Calm Sweet Calm gummies have 200mg of l-theanine, which is the most we’ve ever seen in a gummy!  Compare to Olly’s Goodbye Stress, with 50mg of l-theanine per serving.

Also, HUM is using Sensoril, another premium Ashwagandha supplier.  Sensoril Ashwagandha is extracted and formulated to contain >10% “withanolide glyocsides“, the most bio-active compounds in the roots and leaves of the plant.

This is a different approach than Goli & KSM-66.  Some people report that Sensoril Ashwa has a deeper calming effect due to the high withanolide content, whereas people report KSM-66 Ashwa as having a more “active”, stimulating quality.

It’s interesting to see how the different facets of this fascinating adaptogen play out between these two gummies!

You can read our review of the Hum Calm Sweet Calm review here, but spoiler alert: they didn’t seem to have much of a noticeable effect for us.

We also recently tried Grummies’ Ashwagandha gummies, which are also made with KSM-66 extract.  While we definitely noticed a similar effect from the KSM-66 (as opposed to the HUM), Grummies’ Ashwa gummies have only about 1/3 the amount of Ashwagandha per gummy, compared to Goli, and the effect was correspondingly subtler.  Plus, the Goli gummies are cheaper!

Goli’s claim of being the “world’s most powerful Ashwagandha gummies” has, so far, turned out to be true.

Our Recommendation

These were well worth the wait, and the hype.  We love these.  A lot.

Definitely pick some up if you’re at all on the fence, and we’d love to hear from you about what you think!

Once you get them, that is.  We mentioned above how Goli’s been selling these like crazy. In fact, the demand for these gummies is so insane that as of Jan 16, Goli had sold out of their first run!

You can still pre-order for the next round, which we actually recommend you do if you’re interested in trying these: otherwise who knows when you’ll be able to get your hands on some.

Update: the Ashwa gummies are back in stock as of Feb 20th!   We’ll see how long this run lasts 😹!

👉 Heads up: get 15% off from Goli with the code thegummygalaxy through June 30th 😘

    New gummies from Olly are always exciting, but their new Hello Happy Gummy Worms give us all kinds of reasons to get excited!

    Since Olly helped open the floodgates in the gummy vitamin cosmos in 2013, dozens of innovative gummy brands have been popping up nonstop.  Which means that Olly has had to up their game a little to stay on the cutting edge.

    So, while the gummiverse has been abuzz with Ashwagandha gummies lately, Olly dropped Hello Happy, a Saffron + Vitamin D gummy 🤯.
