Health Benefits for Men
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) is believed to have many health benefits, particularly in managing stress. In studies, ashwagandha supplementation has been found to substantially reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) is also believed to have many health benefits specifically for men and men’s sexual health.
Testosterone is a hormone in men that is associated with sex drive. It also affects the way men store fat in the body, bone and muscle mass, and sperm production.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) has been shown to boost testosterone levels in men. In one study, healthy men who took ashwagandha extract for eight weeks showed significant changes in testosterone levels, improved vitality, and lower fatigue.
Another study found that men taking ashwagandha while on a weight-lifting program had five times higher levels of testosterone than men who did not take the supplement, improving both muscle mass and strength.
Enhanced Sexual Pleasure
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) is said to possess aphrodisiac-like qualities, enhancing sexual desire. Ongoing stress is a common cause of declining sex drive and poor sexual performance. Research shows that ashwagandha offers stress relief, which can affect sex drive and the ability to relax enough to enhance desire and pleasure.
Additionally, Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) helps boost testosterone levels, which may help increase sexual desire and drive.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) may help boost fertility in men. Recent research shows that ashwagandha is effective at boosting both sperm count and sperm motility (movement) in men experiencing infertility.
