Ashwagandha is a well-known herb in Ayurveda for enhancing vitality, longevity, and general health. Additionally, it is used as a potent aphrodisiac to improve sexual health. A recent comprehensive study by Chauhan and colleagues aimed to assess if ashwagandha root extract can enhance adult male sexual health. The results showed that the perception of sexual well-being increased by a statistically significant amount when ashwagandha root extract supplementation was compared to a placebo. Additionally, ashwagandha supplementation resulted in a statistically significant rise in serum testosterone levels. The study suggested that ashwagandha increased individuals' serum testosterone levels and significantly improved their subjective experience of sexual well-being.
