This can be very damaging to one’s sex life.
According to a research paper titled “Withania somnifera improves semen quality by combating oxidative stress and cell death and improving essential metal concentrations” by Lucknow based researchers from Indian Institute of Toxicology, C.S.M Medical University and Central Drug Research Institute “Ashwagandha improves sexual health and increases semen quality in men by halting the ageing process by reducing the pace of cell deaths and improving the overall mental condition of the person.”
The Cells die quicker and the body fails to reproduce them at the rate at which it is lost due to our bad lifestyles. Ashwagandha prevents the cells from running out and increases their life spans giving more time for the body to replace the lost cells and this help men retain their youth and vigour for a longer time.

Every food we consume starts by nourishing the Rasa dhatu and then move to the Rakta dhatu and so on. Only the most effective foods will reach Shukra dhatu. It is generally agreed that foods that nourish the Shukra dhatu or reproductive tissues will nourish all the other tissues on its way and hence is the most nutritious food we can consume.
