Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha’ is an ancient medicinal herb. It’s classified as an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body manage stress. Ashwagandha also provides numerous other benefits for your body and brain.

Ashwagandha is fairly well known in the world of women’s health, but it also offers great health benefits for men. Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and it is well-known for its rejuvenating and adaptogenic properties. It is effective in regulating hormones and the immune system, relieving stress, increasing energy levels and improving concentration.

 

Better sex drive as it is an aphrodisiac: Ashwagandha is an aphrodisiac as it has been long established in the history as one. The legendary ‘Kama Sutra’ also mentions the plant as one of the very powerful sexual stimulants. In fact, ashwagandha is one very common ingredient in herbal aphrodisiac products. When men start taking ashwagandha, the production of nitric oxide is stimulated in their bodies. As a result of this, the blood vessels that carry blood to the genitals are dilatated. This causes an increase in sexual desire and satisfaction.

 A testosterone booster: Testosterone is mainly a male hormone, although it is also present in women at lower levels and is responsible for the same important health benefits. Levels of testosterone typically reduce with age, but it can also be affected by life circumstances, such as chronic stress, at any age. Common signs of low testosterone include reduced sex drive, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, increased body fat, loss of muscle and bone mass, and mood changes. Ashwagandha has gained a solid reputation for boosting testosterone. Studies have shown that supplementation with ashwagandha in men led to a significant increase in testosterone levels, improved sperm quality, and higher antioxidant levels. 

 Reduces cortisol, a testosterone “stealer”: Cortisol, a stress hormone, is physiologically released in response to stress. This becomes problematic when stress is persistent and cortisol levels become chronically elevated. Both cortisol and testosterone are made from the same precursor in the body, therefore, if there is a high demand for cortisol it will have a negative impact on testosterone production. This explains how stress can affect your libido, energy, weight gain, and mood, as these are all health benefits of optimal testosterone levels. The good news is that ashwagandha can also reduce cortisol levels. Study shows that supplementation with the herb in chronically stressed adults significantly reduced their cortisol levels, compared to the control group. 

 Increase in sperm count: Ashwagandha is known to better libido in men and hence, it is only natural for the sperm count to go up. 

 Better endurance: Besides other factors that are related to sexual health directly, ashwagandha has also been proven to be good at bettering one’s physical performance. The reason behind this was ashwagandha’s anti-inflammatory and anti-stressor property. Other Benefits of Ashwagandha:
