Ashwagandha and Testosterone: Potent Adaptogenic Testosterone Booster and Cortisol Suppressant

973 ratings | 61271 views
In this video I discuss the relationship between ashwagandha and testosterone. Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) is a herbal supplement (commonly root powder or extract) widely used in the Indian herbal medicine, aka. Ayurveda. Indian herbal medicine claims that ashwagandha (which loosely translates to “the smell of horse”) would give its user the power of a horse. Though, obviously that’s just not true. Obviously, you will not turn into a super virile horse-man, but the true benefit is the connection between ashwagandha and testosterone. The herb has been shown to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, inflammation, and cortisol levels, improve sperm quality, increase or boost testosterone levels naturally, improve the quality of sleep, strengthen the immune system, and even balance blood lipids. Ashwagandha and testosterone work so great together that it's – in my opinion – the best natural testosterone booster supplement out there. The connection between Ashwagandha and testosterone is not that popular, however it’s well-researched, and has much more evidence behind its back than many of the more “popular” T-boosters Click here for Testro-X, which has high doses of Ashwagandha KSM 66: goo.gl/x5HmJH Follow Me On Social Media: Website: https://truthnutra.com/yt Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/truthnutra/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/truthnutra/ Personal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_christopherwalker/ Truth Nutra Products: Shop For Supplements - https://truthnutra.com/supplements Shop For Books - https://truthnutra.com/books Shop For Apparel - https://truthnutra.com/apparel Use code "YOUTUBE" For 10% Off!

I took a high dose over a week and suffered insomnia which in turn caused my anxiety to heighten! I've considered taking it again just to see if it was perhaps another cause for my insomnia, but it was the only change to my lifestyle

Interesting I have never seen that reported by anyone or in the research. What form was it?

Ashwagandha is NOT an adaptagen! The definition of an adaptagen is something that helps the body deal with stress WITHOUT side effects! He cites all these studies, but ignores the one by the University of Ruhuna in Sri Lankan that shows Ashwaganda causes low libido/erectile difficulties in rats. Another study by Mamidi and Thakar, Indian professors of Ayurvedic medicine, showed NO improvement in men with low libido/erectile difficulties after taking Ashwaganda. Yet another study showed that Ashwaganda works on the same part of the brain as Lorazepam which is known to cause low libido/erectile difficulties! Goggle "does Ashwagandha cause low libido". This stuff killed my libido and was starting to cause erectile difficulties. Talk about stress inducing! It also produced a brain fog and lethargy similar to the side effects of an antidepressant. If you've ever taken antidepressants you know the zombie-like effects I'm talking about. It happened so slowly (like the proverbial frog in boiling water) that I didn't notice it at first. I just thought I was getting old, so I kept taking it because it's the supplement du jour recommended by so many and touted to raise testosterone. I finally stopped taking it and after about 2 weeks my libido started to return. It's been about a month now and I'm glad to say that my libido is back, my erections are harder than ever and I bound out of bed with endless energy. The things that helped me recover were juicing watermelon (including the rind) and taking Tongkat Ali, Horny Goat Weed and Panax Giseng. I also take a low dose of Saw Palmetto (320 mg) because I used to have prostate cancer, but Saw Palmetto cured it. Contrary to what this guy says, Saw Palmetto doesn't lower DHT levels dramatically unless taken at high doses(over 700 mg per day,.) This regimen worked so well my wife asked if I had taken Viagra and I'm 60 years old! I feel like Jack Lalane, King Kong, Tony the tiger and Superman rolled into one! These guys won't tell you the truth about Ashwagandha because they market it and they poo poo Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettles because it's cheap unlike Ashwagandha!

Where in that study does it show a 40% increase in testosterone? I'm looking at the study as we speak and can not find this video referenced study result.

Testimony: I've been taking ashwaganda the last couple weeks. ( tincture put into capsules, because that stuff is FOUL) I'm a worn out stay at home mom with 4 kids, 5 years old and under. Adrenal fatigue is an understatement. This herb along with healthy eating, zoloft, and sleeping through the night is seriously changing my life. Herbs work a little more slowly than regular meds, but ashwaganda has done things i know that prescription meds could not.
Thank you for this video.

Just got some Ashwagandah in today. Seems to have a good amount of withanolides at 2.96mg per capsule. I’m going to keep track of any noticeable effects over the next 60days. I’m hoping to notice better sleep quality, stress reduction, and for those man reasons.

Hey Chris, have you looked into Pine Pollen? Wondering if it has the same effects as ashwagandha?
John Oreilly (1 year ago)
I have been using Ashwagandha along with Holy Basil , Rhodiola and Ginseng for years and these Adaptogens are very effective for Sleep, Sex, Stress, Stamina, Endurance, Mental Clarity and fatigue!! When I first started taking Rhodiola I read how it gave you nonstop energy and helped with recovery and stamina but I was going through some sleep issues and I took it for the first time before work and it made me so tired that I felt like I took a sleeping pill. Then I realized how Adaptogens work with whatever you are facing at the moment . I know a lot of people that use Ashwagandha and it helps the sleep like a baby and at the same time gives them endurance and stamina at the gym! Thank God for these awesome plants that he gave us to help us get through the challenges and struggles we all face in this life
Genuine_user (9 months ago)
Do you find your body getting used to rhodiola? Do you cycle it? Thanks x

James (1 year ago)
Well I bought some liquid Ashwagandha a few weeks ago.  I take one dropper full in the afternoon with water. I can tell you one thing.  The morning "wood" you talked about is definitely back!  And during the middle of the night sometimes as well.

Christopher Walker (1 year ago)
Heck yeah!
Ba A (1 year ago)
Listen man I respect your reviews but regarding this herb for raising testosterone is incorrect. It's a misnomer to say there is Indian medicine, since it's been proven to be sheer quackery. After trying to introduce over a thousand of herbal remedies from these pseudoscience practitioners into the Western world, statistically a wide variety of herbs actually work. Thanks to real science and true medicine thru the years of testing and controlled observations have been able to discard the majority of these useless herbs. You need to qualify your sources before reaching definite conclusions.
James (1 year ago)
Has anyone even had an adverse reaction to liquid ashwagandha?
Daniel Rojo (22 days ago)
Yes, it causes impotence: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/12508132/
Rainbow Videos (22 days ago)
Nope...ashwagandha is a ayurvedic medicine which have little to no side effects. Ayurvedic medicines may or may not benefot you but will not cause you any harm

any side effects? plus going from 600-700 test wont make much difference especially already being in the healthy range

Ashwagandha causes low libido and erectile difficulties!
Nazrul Islam (3 months ago)
I am 29 and I have 345 ng/dL. Doctors are saying it is ok since it is in the range. But I lost my whole sex drive. and almost no muscle. just a skinny guy. Doctors rely on range, that's why they find no problem in such low T.
Lucas Young (4 months ago)
The healthy "range" of Testosterone is very wide and ambiguous. If you had levels at 600 your whole life and you take a dive in your 30's to 300, you will have low T symptoms while still being "in range" according to lab values.
sabretoothed99 (2 years ago)
When should you take it, before sleep? What if you have low morning cortisol?

Also if I am suffering from adrenal fatigue, how many mg, how often, and what time of day should I take it to get better?
Jose Vasconcelos (6 months ago)
Jamal Mirzada, try Melatonin. It will get you to sleep, because it's the hormone that does that. However, it will also lower your Cortisol when you take it.
Alan Bejarano (1 year ago)
Jamal Mirzada Look for the following: - Yogi Perfect Energy Tea (does have Ashwaghanda, l Theanine Gotu Kola and some other cortisol supressors) - Ginseng capsules (not the ones you swallow, but these are ginseng extract contained in a small tube, which you have to consume by a straw) Using those I managed to control my cortisol level. Note: cycle the ginseng every 2 months, for 2 weeks off.

Iamsambu that is because i already have low testosterone so my body is always stressed out. I know the reason for it....I am dealing with a pituitary adenoma similar to chris.
Iamsambu (1 year ago)
Jamal Mirzada i guess you dont. cortisol is a response for something being wrong. its your bodys anti inflammataroy and fight or flight hormone. For example when i was diagnosed with ibd (inflammatory bowel disease) my doctor gave me cortisol to help it in the shor term and it did. you have high cortisol because you have something causing it.

Chris can you do a video on adrenal fatigue?

Christopher Walker (2 years ago)
Yes definitely
CharlesTRose (2 years ago)
I've tried many herbs but not ashwaganda. I will now though! I love tongkat 100-1 at 1 gram per day. I recommended this to several friends and they all reported back that it turned them into a full sexual tyrannosaurus.
CharlesTRose (1 year ago)
Yes I took 3 bottles of the Jarrow KM-66 and didnt notice anything. I like Tongkat and Cistanche and Cordyceps.
Rodrigo P (1 year ago)
Charles, did you try ashwaganda already? what were your results?
Christopher Walker (2 years ago)
Yeah we did an article on Tongkat too, as some good research behind it as well - https://www.anabolicmen.com/tongkat-ali-testosterone/
