Ashwagandha Increases Male Fertility and Testosterone Levels
For men, ashwagandha may have reproductive benefits. By normalising reproductive hormone levels, ashwagandha has been proven to considerably enhance sperm quality in infertile males. One study found that 14% of male patients' partners fell pregnant after the study. Separately, in an ashwagandha stress trial, researchers discovered that the herb boosted testosterone levels in male but not female subjects. Another study on the effect of ashwagandha on muscle strength in men found a considerable increase in testosterone.
