This is a slightly unusual review for us, in that we will actually be saying something good about a Goli product. Generally speaking the brand puts less than half the required doses in their combined ingredient products and are ultimately just selling a gummy that isn’t going to do very much. But, in the case of their straight forward Ashwagandha gummy we actually have the correct amount as clinically tested.
They’ve actually even gone above and beyond what’s needed in most cases, with Ashwgandha have been shown to be effective for improving sleep and mood at 300mg, whilst Goli Ashwagandha Gummies went for the 600mg that has been shown to be effective for these issues and for raising testosterone levels in men.
The price point is a little high for what it is, but the customer reviews of Goli Ashwagandha are pretty solid. About the only two complaints are that in hot weather the gummies get stuck together, suggesting that the storage they’re using or transport could be less than brilliant. And the sugar in them is a little bit on the high side, meaning they won’t be suitable for everyone. They do taste pretty good however.
The added vitamin D2 is a decent addition as well (we’d have rather seen D3, more on that later), seeing as a large part of the US population is deficient (some studies say up to 50-60%) and this can also cause low mood. Meaning that Golli have added something else in to increase the chances of them working for you.
There are better products for stress, sleep and hormone regulation of course, but at $15-20 a bottle Goli really isn’t a terrible option, if you only take a half dose and make them last a full month. As it has should be noted, that this is only a 2 weeks supply if you’re going for the full 600mg.
Meaning that they are a bit overpriced. Because if you’re spending $40 a month, then we’re getting into the territory of good combined supplements that will have the full dose of Ashwagandha along with a dozen or so correctly dosed ingredients, not just vitamin D2.
In this case, the product is good at what it claims to be. We’ll get into Ashwagandha itself a little further down our Goli Ashwagandha review, and the pros and cons. But, the product itself is decent, just a little expensive.
The most common complaint in negative Goli Ashwagandha Gummy reviews is that they’re too sweet or they simply don’t work. Which is to be expected as not all supplements are going to work for everyone and the severity of your issues will make a difference in how effective they are.
Of course, there are standard taste issues, but again not everyone is going to like the flavor. As for the overall rating of 4.3* out of 5 this does seem to be legitimate and as we’d expect it to be.
In terms of sources beyond Goli’s Amazon page, reddit was pretty bare in terms of reviews as was Goli’s other 3rd party pages like trustpilot when it came to people talking specifically about their ashwagandha products.
The reviews of goli ashwagandha on Walmart lined up with Amazon pretty well as did the smaller resellers, meaning that it’s relatively safe to assume that issues of, sugar, taste and it not working were the main complaints, but most people are in fact happy with the product and do seem to agree with Goli Ashwagandha Gummies benefits being what the company claims of improved stregnth, stress levels and sleep. There weasn't much mention around libido or memory, though.
The only other thing worth mentioning is there were some complaints of side effects from Goli Ashwagandha gummies, most commonly gastric distress, which lines up with known issues from the herb itself.
All in all
this isn’t a bad product from Goli, it will definitely do what it’s supposed
to which is more than we can say for pretty much everything else they sell.
But, it’s price point and 2 week bottles, make it off-putting.
This is a borderline deceptive practice with almost every other supplement company selling month long supplies for this price meaning we can’t really recommend Goli Ashwagandha gummies. If you’ve already bought them, then use them, the product is pretty good, but most people are probably better off saving themselves $20 and get a different brand that gives you a months supply for the same price.
Or going for a combined supplement like Prime Male (for people wanting ashwandha’s physical boost) or something like RestAgain (for people looking at it’s benefits for sleep.
Both still contain functional dosages of Ashwagandha and d3, but give you a host of other effective ingredients at around the same price point.
