Ashwagandha is one of my favorite testosterone boosters of all time and it has a very wide range of other uses than only boosting testosterone, for instance every time that I supplement with Ashwagandha I tend to see much more vivid dreams and it significantly improves the quality of my sleep.
I also always get the high T rush at the gym after taking Ashwagandha prior to workouts.
So is there any studies that show the testosterone booster effects of Ashwagandha?
1. Researchers at the ICMR Advanced Centre for Reverse Pharmacology in Traditional Medicine discovered that Ashwagandha decreases fat mass, increases lean muscle mass, and protects cardiovascular system in healthy individuals.
2. Three months of supplemeting with a 5g dose of Ashwagandha resulted in a nice 40% increase in serum testosterone, reports the Indian Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University.
3. Guru Nanak Dev University in India found out that athletes who supplemented with Ashwagandha significantly increased their sprint performance.
4. Ashwagandha extract has been shown to decrease cortisol levels significantly. Not a huge surprise, as this herb is one of the strongest adaptogens known to man.
