Ashwaganda is an herb native to India and is somewhat similar in use to another popular Asian herb – Ginseng. The Ashwaganda is like the Ginseng of India and it is a part of the nightshade family although it is not a poisonous variety. It is normally used to together with Ayurvedic medicine to treat stress related discomforts and hypertension. Since the herb is easily grown and cultivated in India, it is now being tapped to treat impotence and infertility in men. Ashwaganda is also known by its botanical name Withania somnifera and consists of glycosides, alkaloids, and withanolides.

Although it is grown mostly in India, making it an Eastern herb, it is used in both Eastern and Western medicine. It has been widely used for more than a thousand years. The dried roots and berries of the Ashwaganda are known to have a very slight effect on the gastrointestinal tract and the stomach. It’s basically the whole of the plant, although there were no studies done to find out what are the benefits of using the leaf. Usually, the herb’s roots are used in tea forming a liquid herbal extract, while it can be taken directly or as herbal capsules, powdered roots, or dried and crushed which can be mixed with food. Many manufacturers such as http://www.penispills.com sell the herb in these forms. The root of the herb itself is used to treat infertility in India. However, the Ashwaganda should not be taken as a daily supplement but as an aid when having difficulty. It should also be taken in a considerable amount of time only.

In China, it has been used as an astringent, sedative, a “yang” tonic, and for back and joint pains, nerve pains, arthritis, insomnia, neurasthenia, during recuperation, children with slow growth, aging, and an aphrodisiac. It is also used for its sexual relief and for treating infertility and impotence. The Ashwaganda is also said to strengthen the sperm and to increase the sexual experience based an Ayurvedic medicine.

The Ashwaganda is the most powerful of all the aphorodisiac herbs. It can help revive sexual drive or libido, increase and enhance overall strength making its user last longer in bed and to have a longer endurance. It also helps clear the mind since it is used to relieve stress and the strain of too much activity. It is also called the “adaptogenic” herb since it gets rid of the stress in your nerves making your body stronger and more adapted to stress. Since stress contributes a great deal in losing sexual appetite, the loss of stress also helps you restore your sexual energy. Your body can now produce the hormones that you need to help you function well –sexually and even mentally while having intercourse.

The reproductive and the respiratory system are also enhanced by taking this herb. This includes the treatment of impotence and infertility, as well as erectile problems and premature ejaculation. Although the herb is used to treat infertility, it should not be taken by pregnant women to prevent damages, especially to the child.
