Withania / Ashwaghanda

Latin Name: Withani somnifera

Withania increases vitality, energy, endurance and stamina.

Withania is an adaptogen, which helps the body cope with stress, increases stamina and acts as a General tonic. 

'Withania also supports the nervous system promoting a calm state of mind.  According to herbalist Michael Tierra, Withania is ‘the most potent tonic aphrodisiacs in the entire botanical kingdom’

The hormone testosterone is found in both men and women, however, at higher levels in men.   Loss of libido for both genders and erectile dysfunction (ED) in men can be associated with reduced testosterone levels associated with age or conditions that cause hormonal imbalances. 

Studies have shown that anxiety, mental stress and depression can reduce libido and cause ED.  Studies have demonstrated that Withania can stimulate production of Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a precursor to testosterone.  Through case studies and clinical trials it can be shown that Withania is also a proven stress reliever and an effective treatment in both anxiety and depression.  '
