New Study Reveals Herb Boosts Sexual Desire and Satisfaction in Women

Ayurvedic herb ashwagandha improves sexual function in women, not just men.

In India, Ayurvedic doctors have long used ashwagandha to treat sexual dysfunction in men and women. In this study, 50 healthy, sexually active women age 21 to 50 who reported having sexual difficulties, took 300 mg of ashwagandha twice per day, or a placebo.

After eight weeks, compared to placebo, women taking ashwagandha reported greater improvement in physical and emotional measures including arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction.

Discussing the findings, doctors said earlier studies had found ashwagandha helped improve sexual function in men, but that this is the first placebo controlled trial to demonstrate significant positive effects on sexual function in women. Ashwagandha is a calming agent; an "adaptogen," doctors explained, that promotes body balance, particularly by increasing or decreasing key hormones to bring them to appropriate levels.

Ashwagandha Root

Known as “Ayurvedic Ginseng,” Ashwagandha supports stamina, endurance, and energy.
Who would benefit from this supplement? Those suffering from fatigue, stress, immune system problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, recovery from illness and auto-immune disorders. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, similar to ginseng, but it is less heating, “yang” or simulating than Panax ginseng.

Ashwagandha is known as the “Ayurvedic” Ginseng. It is indicated for the same types of conditions as Ginseng, but Ashwagandha is not heating, Yang or stimulating like Ginseng (Panax varieties). It is used preventatively for those who have difficulty replenishing the energy they expend, and want to avoid burn out. Burnout from unrelenting stress can take the form of immune breakdown (colds, flu), headaches, irritable bowel, blood sugar swings and any other genetic, predispositional or constitutional weakness. Ashwagandha gives additional life force or Chi to help adapt to the stresses at hand.

It can also be used as a restorative for those who have already burned out. Ashwagandha, as part of a rejuvenation treatment plan is effective in chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, debility, recovery from wasting diseases, chemotherapy and helps while one is in emotional recovery therapy.

Ashwagandha is also indicated specifically in autoimmune disorders. It helps immunity to self modulate. It also has an affinity to help chronic neuro-muscular disorders such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis (MS).
