Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) lowers stress
As one of the most common reasons of declining sex drive and poor sexual performance is stress, the plant of Ashwagandha can help reduce stress levels, to start with. When the stress levels are high, so is the blood pressure. When the blood pressure is high, it restricts blood flow to all the arteries, hence, becoming one of the leading causes of impotence. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, that is, it strengthens the adrenal glands and improves our fight-or-flight reactions.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) boosts sex drive, as it is an Aphrodisiac
Withania Somnifera (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, Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) is one very common ingredient in herbal aphrodisiac products. When men start taking Withania Somnifera (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 dilated. This causes an increase in sexual desire and satisfaction.
It raises testosterone
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) has been proven to raise the levels of Testosterone significantly. As men age, the production of Testosterone decreases in their bodies significantly. In fact, it is said that the level of testosterone drops by 0.4 to 2 per cent in men after the age of 30 every year.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) helps in the production of testosterone. It increases the serum levels of the luteinising hormone and testosterone and revitalises the natural balance of sexual hormones in men.
