When we talk about Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha aces the list of essential herbs. Being used for over thousands of years, this evergreen shrub is known for its wide-ranging benefits and has become popular outside of Ayurveda.

Fun fact: The name “ashwagandha” describes the smell of its root, which translates to “like a horse” and refers to its potential ability to increase strength and vitality.

1. Supports aspects of sex drive

Ashwagandha is considered an aphrodisiac, which can be effective for low libido. The Ashwagandha root also helps support physical as well as emotional aspects of sexual health such as arousal, stimulation, and satisfaction.

2. Relieves stress and anxiety

When we’re stressed, there’s an increase in cortisol levels in our body (aka fight or flight hormone). Higher levels can also negatively impact sexual desire, impact quality of sleep, and energy in general. Well known for its stress and anxiety-relieving properties, several studies have shown that Ashwagandha can help support the body’s response to stress and significantly improve sleep quality.

3. Helps benefit performance

Ashwagandha supplements can be efficient in improving athletic performance. Another study observed an increase in endurance and energy. So, if you’re someone who wants to focus on enhancing physical performance, ashwagandha can be of help!

What side effects can you expect?In some cases, large doses can lead to an upset stomach or nausea, though they’re often short-lived. Don’t take Ashwagandha supplements in any form if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding or have an autoimmune disease. For more detailed information and instructions, please follow the label.
