Ashwagandha Benefits for Men

Ashwagandha is an herb that men in Asia and India have relied upon for centuries for better stamina and improved sexual performance. This is what the herb is most known for, in terms of men’s health.

Ashwagandha And Men

Ashwagandha benefits men’s health in more ways than sexual health. It nourishes the brain in numerous ways, promoting clear thinking and improved mood. It seems to repair and rejuvenate the mind, even after the ravages of stress.

Because of this action directly on neurotransmitters in the brain, a man may be less anxious, less stressed — and therefore more relaxed during sexual activity.

This is believed to be the reason that it can sometimes help to alleviate those with premature ejaculation issues.

Ashwagandha has long been believed to also be an aphrodisiac.  Both men and women consume the herb for enhanced libido and performance.

Ashwagandha and Stress

The herb appears to enhance energy and stamina, while also has a calming effect on anxiety and stress.

It is interesting to note that ashwagandha’s nutrient and chemical structure is quite like the compounds found in Ginseng; but some studies have shown that ashwagandha is superior to the stress relief of Ginseng.

Ashwagandha and Ayurvedic Medicine

Ashwagandha has been prescribed by natural healers and Ayurvedic practitioners for many years. It is particularly helpful for physical and emotional stress, anxiety and exhaustion.

Current scientific research is showing hopeful applications for the treatment of mental health problems. Ashwagandha appears to support and normalize neurotransmitters in the brain in some individuals. (note: Never stop taking prescription drugs that you may be currently taking under the advice of a doctor without consulting them for advice.)

Ashwagandha Benefits for Men and Women

Another benefit  for both men and women? More restful and peaceful sleep. Again, this is because ashwagandha appears to improve the balance of naturally occurring brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.  Having healthy levels of these compounds in the brain has many health benefits — including better sleep.


As you can see, ashwagandha benefits for men go far beyond just sexual health. It may help to normalize blood pressure and cholesterol levels.  Ashwagandha promotes overall wellness in several body systems, helping to normalize the body’s reaction to stressors, both emotional and physical.
