Hello Harry

A child will easily take powder rather than capsule. Give him three grams of Ashwagandha powder with milk twice a day. Ashwagandha is a good body tonic and its helps in the treatment of body weakness. You should use ashwagandha regularly for almost two to three months to get best results.

Hello Rahul

Over masturbation is the most common cause of sexual problems in males. Repeated masturbation causes premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and many such problems. So we advise you to avoid masturbation and start with the regular course of Butea Superba Gel and Kohinoor Gold. These are herbal medicines and can be used safely for three months to get satisfactory results,. We recommend a regular three months course for best results. Further queries are welcome.
