Ashwagandha Root Extract May Improve Sexual Dysfunction in Women

Women with sexual dysfunction experience orgasm disorder and sexual difficulties. A recent study suggests that supplements of ashwagandha root extract may improve sexual function in healthy women.


Participants in the study included 50 women between the ages of 21 and 50 who were given 300 mg of high-concentration ashwagandha root extract or a placebo twice daily for eight weeks. The researchers measured sexual function via the Female Sexual Function Index Questionnaire (FSFI) and the Female Sexual Distress Scale (FSDS).


At the conclusion of the study, the ashwagandha root group had significantly greater improvement in the FSFI total score compared with the placebo group. Supplementation was also found to be associated with improvements in arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction.


Researchers from Trupti Hospital and Santati Fertility Center, BVDU Dental College & Hospital, and NSHM Knowledge Campus, all in India, conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on October 4, 2015, in BioMed Research International.


Previous studies suggest that ashwagandha may help with memory, cognitive function and brain health, increase strength, and help with sexual dysfunctions. The best way to consume ashwagandha is by taking a high quality supplement.
