More than a few of us experience various setbacks in the bedroom department – and that goes for both women and men. Erectile dysfunction can become a huge problem for men… but the loss of libido and sex drive is equally as likely to happen to women. Luckily modern medicine has started to regain some of the natural remedies we used to rely on before science took hold… That’s not to say we are back to using leeches; but rather that traditionally used ancient herbal treatments are being examined scientifically to find out how they work. Thus it is with Ashwagandha, which has various sexual benefits for men.
What is Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha is an Indian herb that has been used for various ailments for generations. Also sometimes called ‘Indian Ginseng’ it is a versatile herb that name translates to ‘a rejuvenator’, which goes some way to explaining the remarkable effects it can have both physically and on the libido.
How Does Ashwagandha Sexually Benefit Men?
To find out, we need to consider the most common sexual issues men have. Mainly ED and what specifically causes it. One of the predominant factors in performance is the stress level. When your body is stressed the blood vessels that pump blood to the penis when you are aroused constrict and tighten, making it much more difficult for a man to achieve and sustain an erection. Ashwagandha, according to the Times of India, was the subject of an experiment to prove this. The study consisted of subjects given daily doses of KSM – 66 Ashwagandha for 60 days, after which their cortisol levels fell by 27%. Since high cortisol levels indicate high stress held internally we can assume that this stress reduction also improved their erectile ability.
As well as being able to relax you and therefore increase your libido; Ashwagandha is proven to raise not only the testosterone levels in the body but also the bodies ability to absorb this critical compound. When testosterone is high libido is also higher. Lack of testosterone is also the reason for baldness and loss of muscle as men age, so a lot can be said for finding an all-natural substitute like Ashwagandha that won’t do damage to your body but might give you some serious sexual benefits.
As well as boosting testosterone and relaxing you, Ashwagandha can:
- Increase the sperm count in men.
- Reduce the symptoms faced by those with depression.
- Decrease inflammation and soothe pain
- Boost muscle mass production.
