9. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
- Medicinal Use: High Blood Pressure, Low Testosterone
People can see Ashwagandha in the wilds of India. However, people cultivate it all over the world. It is one of the most popular herbal medicines within the Ayurvedic Medicine world. This is basically Ancient Indian medicine. We have seen it remain popular for hundreds of years in the herbal community. Therefore, one assumed Ashwagandha has some true medicinal use.
Although there is not really enough evidence to prove it can reduce stress, anxiety, or depression; it depends on who you ask about it. The plant has shown that it can lower blood pressure and has helped some men boost testosterone and thus boost fertility. If this is the case, and one has stress or depression due to problems in these areas, then they would no longer deal with this if those problems can be helped.
