How does ashwagandha impact testosterone?

One study in older, overweight males demonstrated that 8 weeks of supplementation with ashwagandha extract increased levels of DHEA-S (a steroid hormone that helps make testosterone) and testosterone. Other limited studies have shown that supplementation is associated with improved muscle strength, increased muscle size, decreased body fat percentage, and improved semen quality. However, ashwagandha has not been evaluated by the FDA and further studies need to be done to better understand its effects and optimal dosing.
