Sensoril® is derived from a unique blend of both leaves and roots of the Withania somnifera plant to provide optimal efficacy and bioactive diversity. During this trial, Sensoril® showed significant improvement in both upper and lower-body strength in recreationally active men over a 12-week resistance training and supplementation period.

Subjects in the Sensoril® group significantly improved their squat strength by 90%, an increase in leg strength of more than 9 kg, compared to the placebo. There was also a 60% improvement upper body strength (as assessed by the bench press) by more than 4 kg.
