Ashwagandha, a key ingredient in our Absolu Plus is very widely utilized in Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine, and is deemed an adaptogen. Both the name and the term you will start to hear more and more because of it’s all-round effectiveness (you heard it here first!).
An adaptogen is a herb that protects the body from stress while it simultaneously helps the body address the effects of stress. It has been shown to decrease cortisol levels in people under chronic stress, restore healthy adrenal function, and normalize the sympathetic nervous system [1, 2]. Ashwagandha root extract, the afore mentioned potent ingredient in our Absolu Plus, is also used to treat sexual weakness, erectile dysfunction, and performance anxiety in men and has been recommended to improve diminished sexual desire in women and in all forms of sexual dysfunction [3–6], particularly where a depleted nervous system is playing a role. You can read more about the many beneficial effects of our wonder ingredient in our blog post on the matter. But you’re not here to read about cortisol or your nervous system, are you?
The Kama Sutra, one of the oldest surviving texts on human sexuality, mentions Ashwagandha in its literature as a potent sexual stimulant. Research indicates that the herb supports sexual health and vitality by, among other things, increasing blood flow and reducing bodily tension. Women taking Ashwagandha typically experience an increase in sexual desire and satisfaction.
Ashwagandha has had a great significance in Oriental medical schools of thought, especially in the ancient Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda, for many centuries. It had also been used by Native Americans and Africans. Extensive scriptures describing the Ashwagandha plant and its medicinal properties have been mentioned in both traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda.
“Many women experience sexual dysfunction where there are orgasm disorders and sexual difficulties. Ashwagandha [a prime ingredient in Transformitea Absolu Plus] is a herb known to improve the body’s physical and psychological condition” 
So, a scientific study was performed. The purpose of the study was to determine the efficacy (read: effectiveness) and safety of a high-concentration Ashwagandha root extract supplementation for improving sexual function in healthy females.
You see!! We really would do anything to keep our customers happy (some are VERRRY happy)!
In the pilot study, 50 study subjects were randomized to either (i) Ashwagandha-treated group or (ii) placebo- (starch-) treated group.
The subjects consumed either Ashwagandha or placebo capsules twice daily for 8 weeks. Sexual function was assessed using two scales, the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) Questionnaire and the Female Sexual Distress Scale (FSDS), and by the number of total and successful sexual encounters.
Results. The analysis indicates that treatment with a high concentrate of Ashwagandha root extract leads to significantly higher improvement, relative to placebo, in for “arousal”, “orgasm”, and “satisfaction” and more. And also wins on the FSDS score and the number of successful sexual encounters at the end of the treatment.
Conclusions. “This study demonstrated that oral administration of a high-concentration Ashwagandha root extract may improve sexual function in healthy women.”
And trust us, in scientific literature where you have to be very careful with what you say and publish, this truly is a Eureka-throwing-papers-in-the-air moment!
