Ashwagandha to help with premature ejaculation

Question asked by


I would like to find a natural remedy for premature ejaculation. I read somewhere that ashwagandha might help men last during sex, along with some other benefits.

Do my findings hold any truth?

Ashwagandha is an herb used in Indian medicine. Can I use it to treat premature ejaculation and last longer?

For some, the promise of an all-natural solution to premature ejaculation sounds appealing, particularly when compared to medications and prescriptions.

Ashwagandha is often touted as a premature ejaculation treatment, but does it work?

Based on anecdotal evidence, the herb can show promising results, but the science is still out on whether ashwagandha is truly effective or if it mainly works as a placebo.

What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is an herb that is native to India and North Africa which has been used by the people of these regions for centuries.

Typically, Ashwagandha is ground into a fine powder to make it easier to absorb.

It is commonly used in Ayurveda, an alternative medicine system founded in India.

How Does Ashwagandha Work?

This plant is classified as an adaptogen, meaning that it mostly helps your body manage stress levels.

Several studies have shown its effectiveness at reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) levels, but there is limited clinical research.

Some other proposed benefits, include:

  • May improve testosterone levels
  • May help reduce inflammation and manage insulin levels
  • May act as a nootropic or help with cognitive function

Can Ashwagandha Help With Premature Ejaculation?

Because the herb may help regulate your body's hormonal production, it may help facilitate better sex for dysfunctions related to low testosterone.

However, based on research, ashwagandha alone isn't sufficient at treating any specific condition, including premature ejaculation.

One study related to the plant and erectile dysfunction showed that it doesn't have any better effects than a placebo.

Suffice to say, if you use ashwagandha powder and expect it to make you last longer in bed, it likely won't do anything.

There is limited to no research on how or if ashwagandha will help treat premature ejaculation. If you’re looking for something with proven clinical research there are many options for you.

Some include trying a male delay spray like Promescent, various exercises or techniques, and using thick condoms to prolong the time it takes to reach orgasm.

Studies have found mostly mild side effects, so if you’d like to try the herb for an alternative treatment option, that is not premature ejaculation, there are few risks.
