Ashwagandha stimulates immune system defences, helping to avoid numerous illnesses and restoring vitality and energy.
It is also used to stimulate libido, enhance sexual function and combat infertility, since it improves and revitalises sperm quality and also combat premature ejaculation.
It also plays a role in combating mental fatigue, reducing the harmful effects of stress and depression. Its relaxant and calming properties promote restful sleep and relaxation.
Ashwagandha: Detailed information
Ashwagandha, commonly known as Indian ginseng, is the most famous of the Ayurvedic medicinal plants. Its root has been used as a rasayana – a therapeutic agent for rejuvenation and lengthening lifespan – for more than 3,000 years.
Following the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, in India Ashwagandha root is used by men and women alike, and is widely prescribed by doctors for adults with low libido, to restore vitality and enhance sexual function.
It is prescribed due to its adaptogenic properties, which improve overall immunity and resistance to different types of mental and physical stress. In addition, unlike other stimulants such as caffeine, adaptogens have no side effects such as addiction, tolerance or sleep disorders.

It has a distinctive smell, and can grow up to two metres high, but the main part of the Ashwagandha is its root, which is divided into a long central stem and a mass of smaller, secondary roots.
