Ayurveda For Men’s Health And Care

How does Ayurveda Promote Men’s Health?

Is there anyone who wouldn’t desire a happy life? Of course, everyone desires it and life becomes worth living when it is a healthy one. Ayurveda, an ancient Indian medical practice, has a history of thousands of years. This practice is divided into eight sections:

Internal Medicine

According to Ayurveda, three pillars of a healthy lifestyle are a balanced diet, sleep, and sexual life. Sex is not merely physical mating but the unification of two bodies, minds, and souls; the process is transformative and has healing ability if managed appropriately.

For a balanced sex life, both men and women should have healthy organs. But when it comes to sexual health, most Indian men are not vocal about the issues they might be experiencing. In this modern era where erectile dysfunction has become a common problem, people need to gather knowledge about safe Ayurvedic medicine for men’s health.

The remarkable rise of men’s health concerns is often caused by stress and anxiety due to work pressure, traffic, modern-day professional and personal complex relationships, etc. According to a study performed by the Indian Journal of Psychiatry, one in five Indian males suffers from one or more sexual disorders.

Men’s reproductive system, like any other system of the human body, requires proper care and nourishment. Otherwise, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation would trouble a person.

The whole-body holistic approach of Indian ancient medicine treatment has many obvious benefits. It has no such side effects compared to modern synthetic drugs, such as Viagra. In most cases, ayurvedic medicine for men’s health contains herbs that strengthen and nourish the male reproductive system. Some of these herbs include:


Ashwagandha or Withania somnifera is widely used in Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It maximizes body ability, reduces stress, empowers the body to reserve, and sustain vital energy throughout the entire day. Also, it calms the mind by promoting sound sleep and improves the function of the adrenals.


Shatavari or Asparagus racemosus cools and nourishes the body, and strengthens the cells. It has qualities that promote fertility and maintain a healthy libido.


Kapikacchu, also known as Mucuna pruriens can nourish the nervous system, promote sexual energy, and tone both male and female reproductive organs.


Vidari or Ipomoea digitata acts as a sweet nutritive tonic that rejuvenates both body and mind. It improves the muscles and nerve tissues and promotes healthy lactation.


Licorice or Glycyrrhiza glabra is an herb that helps the male reproductive system to function properly, eliminates excess Kapha from the stomach and lungs, promotes healthy expectancy and proper lungs’ function, and calms the mucous membranes and stomach lining.

Along with taking medicine, if one starts maintaining the lifestyle advised by Ayurveda, the male reproductive system would show signs of improvement gradually. For a healthy reproductive system, Ayurveda suggests men to:

Have good sleep
Drink plenty of water
Maintain a sattvic diet
De-stress the mind

Bottom Line

Everyone should be conscious about self-care; the myth that self-care is only for women must be debunked. Like women, men are also a vital part of the family, and hence taking care of their body, mind, and soul is equally important. Ayurvedic medicines, a healthy lifestyle, meditation, and yoga are included in a holistic evidence-based medical practice that can help men achieve a joyful and fulfilled life.
