Ashwagandha, Withania somnifera, is the main herb in Ayurvedic male reproductive system formulas. It is to Ayurveda what ginseng is to Chinese medicine. For the most part, fertility or lack of fertility in men is considered to be a pitta problem: toxins cause heat and destroy both sperm count and virility so the first step to improvement is reduction of pitta, which leads to less inflammation. However, ashwagandha has many other medicinal actions, including libido, stamina, and cancer treatment. Ashwagandha is an important source of phytosteroids.

   

Ashwagandha Extract, 2 oz.
Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha holds a premier place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It is both a rasayana herb, meaning one that aids the quality of life and longevity, as well as an adaptogen, an herb that improves our ability to cope with stress. This herb has a multitude of uses but to understand how research of prized Indian herbs is conducted, it is useful to consider how well an herb protects the patient from damaging changes when exposed to chemical, metallic, or radioactive hazards and how successfully the herb protects against free radicals. Ashwagandha is very high on the list of such valuable herbs, but it is most often used to improve male potency and endurance.
