Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an herb that is extensively used in Ayurveda, the traditional health care system in India.  Ashwagandha is used as a general tonic and "adaptogen", helping the body adapt to stress.  An adaptogen has the ability to calm and relax you- then give you the energy level you need. In addition, Ashwagandha has been shown to possess significant antioxidant activity as well as an ability to support a healthy immune system.

Several studies have reportedly shown it to greatly boost the immune system, increasing white blood cell production, helping to ward off illness and disease. These studies have demonstrated that Ashwagandha contains compounds that possess strong anti-oxidant properties. It is known to inhibit anxiety and improve energy, reduce stress and help you sleep.

Since Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, it improves overall health and stamina which leads to better sexual performance. The adaptogenic aspect of the herb also can partly explain why it may lead to increased semen production, alleviate infertility and increase sperm count. It has also been traditionally used as an aphrodisiac. Furthermore since the herb has a tendency to calm an individual due to its impact on the nervous system, the resulting calm feeling tends to elevate a person's mood and aid in general sexual desire and performance.
