Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies to Reverse Infertility and Impotence

In Ayurveda, male and female fertility are treated differently. The study of aphrodisiacs in Ayurveda deals with issues of sexuality, spirituality, and fertility, and is one of the eight branches of Ayurvedic medicine.1,15

For women, reproductive organs must be nourished and pitta balanced. There are no clinical studies to support the use of any herbs for to treat female infertility, but several are recommended by Ayurvedic practitioners. One herb traditionally used for these purposes is the juice from the succulent plant aloe (Aloe vera). Other herbs typically used in Ayurveda to increase female fertility include ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and gotu kola (Centella asiatica).15

Modern research corroborates the effectiveness of some of the herbs traditionally used in Ayurveda to treat male infertility and impotence:

  • Ginseng. In two clinical trials involving a total of almost 135 men, those who took Korean red ginseng (Panax ginseng) had significantly better erectile function than those who took the placebo. The treated group in the smaller, better-designed 8-week study took 900 mg of Korean red ginseng 3 times a day.41
  • Shilajit. Clinical studies confirm that the use of shilajit, a mineral and herb substance traditionally used in Ayurveda for male fertility, significantly increases testosterone, sperm count, and sperm motility.42
