Five Herbs to Boost Energy and Build Muscle

When we want to build muscle mass or boost our energy levels, most of us instinctively reach for protein powders, shakes or energy drinks. But these are only one answer, and a partial one, too – in fact, many of these formulations contain artificial ingredients and have damaging side effects.

There are many herbs that promote strength and stimulate the process of muscle repair in an entirely natural way. Alongside a healthy and balanced diet and physical activity, these herbs allow us to meet our daily need for energy and strength. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, as well as clinical trials and research studies, have scientifically proven the effectiveness of herbs such as Ashwagandha, Shatavari and others in increasing vitality, muscle growth and muscle repair (Dr. Sneh Harshendra Sharma, 2012; Jameel Mohd. et al. 2012; Tavhare & Nishteshwar, 2015).

Here are five herbs that work to naturally boost your energy and build muscle mass:

Herb

English Name

How it works

Ashwagandha Root

Indian Winter Cherry or Indian Ginseng

Ashwagandha increases the red blood cell (RBC) count and Hemoglobin levels in your blood. This enables oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to reach everywhere in your body, nourishing your cells and promoting physical and mental growth of your body.

Ashwagandha also stimulates the process of tissue formation in your muscles, which aids in muscle growth and repair.

Shatavari Root

Wild Asparagus

 

Shatavari stimulates blood formation in the body and increases your red blood cell (RBC) count, which boosts your energy levels.

Shatavari also prevents tissue damage in the body through its antioxidant effect.

Safed Musli Root

Musli

Safed Musli nourishes the body and increases muscle strength through promoting tissue formation.

Salab Punja Root

Marsh Orchid

Salab Punja promotes the anabolic effect of tissue formation resulting in increased muscle mass. This helps in increasing body weight to promote strength.

Gokhru Fruit

Puncture Vine

Gokhru increases oxygen transport through blood to each cell of the body and improves blood circulation to nourish tissues, which results in a natural and sustained energy boost.

Clinical studies have also proven the effects of Gokhru fruit in improving the body’s ability to build muscle mass and strength. (Milašius et al, 2010). 

 

People looking to boost their energy levels and promote muscle growth and repair will greatly benefit from these herbs, which work in a sustained way to nourish your body. Ojasyaa, Devang’s herbal formulation for energy and strength, contains all five of these herbs without any added chemicals or preservatives. Best of all, there are no side effects – these herbs are the perfect companion for those who lead an active lifestyle to ensure sustained vitality, health and happiness!
