Natural Supplements To Boost Your Libido

July 29, 2020

Sex drive is a strange thing in more ways than one, right? There may have been a time where you had had no problem getting a little friskier, but things can sometimes change as time passes. For some of us, things like taking a nap or simply getting the act over and done with can sometimes feel more important.

Sex drive can also depend on many other factors. Blaming it solely on age would not be the right thing to do. Compatibility with the partner, dietary intake, stress or depression, medication use, and body image issues also impact your sexual desire. If you feel like your libido could be a result of medication or hormonal issues, please consult your doctor. If not, then here is a brief overview of some natural supplements that help boost libido.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo biloba is an herbal supplement that is consumed in multiple forms. Research suggests that this herb works effectively as a natural aphrodisiac.  It is available online or in health food stores in the form of capsules, tablets, dried leaves, or liquid extracts.

It can improve the levels of nitric oxide in the blood. It, in turn, improves blood circulation through dilating the blood vessels. Thus, Ginkgo biloba is useful in treating different symptoms of low libido, erectile dysfunction, and other such instances of sexual dysfunction.

Maca

Maca, a kind of root vegetable found in South America, is also termed as Peruvian ginseng. In 2010, scientists carried out the research. According to it, it can enhance the libido of males. However, the result was not conclusive as it needed more research.

Are you going through the postmenopausal phase? Do you consume antidepressants every day? If yes, then the root of the maca plant has the potential to treat your sexual dysfunctions. A research of 2015 proved it.

Moreover, this natural supplement comes in 3 types. They are red, black and yellow. Black maca, the rarest one, can improve sexual desire and fertility. The red variety can enhance the sexual function in males.

It is a type of food and tastes sweet. Hence, it is safer to try than an artificial supplement. But you should keep a few things in mind.

  • You should avoid it if you have estrogen-sensitive conditions. Maca raises estrogen levels.
  • Ask your doctor about whether you should try Maca if you are having libido issues due to antidepressants.

Tribulus Terrestris

It is a Mediterranean fruit plant that is covered throughout its body with spines. Its other name is puncture vine. Apart from helping fix issues with low libido, the plant's root, leaf, and fruit are also used as medicine.

A study showed that 7.5 milligrams of Tribulus Terrestris extract are effective for female arousal disorder or sexual disinterest. According to this study, after four weeks, the ones who took the extract had a major improvement in sexual satisfaction, arousal, and desire. Though it was a small study involving only sixty participants, the results were pretty conducive.

CBD

Cannabidiol can be highly effective in boosting your sex life. It acts as an aphrodisiac. Smoking, vaping or eating cannabis cupcakes are great ways to tap into its aphrodisiac effects.

In the female reproductive tract, the CBD receptors are in the vulva, vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. All these parts play essential roles in the pain and pleasures of sex.

These receptors are also significant in improving libido and dealing with the inability to get orgasms. Even men suffering from erectile dysfunction can try Lazarus Naturals CBD.

Saffron

Multiple studies have suggested that the use of saffron tablets has led to an improvement in the condition of erectile dysfunction. It is also known to be effective in increasing sexual desire and satisfaction.

It is even known to be effective in increasing the libido in women who take an antidepressant called fluoxetine.

However, it is important to note that though saffron is known to be effective in improving sexual interests, it does not increase the chances of becoming pregnant or semen's viability. Even if you use saffron, do it only to increase sex drive.

Ginseng

Panax ginseng (popularly known as the Asian ginseng) is often termed as the king of herbs. It has shown promise in being effective in improving multiple areas of general wellbeing. One of its main functions lies in improving male libido.

In ancient Chinese medicine, ginseng has been mentioned as an aphrodisiac. It has been in use to treat sexual dysfunction and improve sexual behavior.

It might also raise libido in women undergoing menopause. There have been studies showing remarkable improvements in their sexual desire after taking three grams of ginseng every day.

Fenugreek 

The final entry to the list is a useful herb as both a supplement and cooking. Researchers have claimed that fenugreek can improve sex drive by a quarter.

A compound named saponin is present inside fenugreek seeds. According to the researchers, it acts as a stimulant in producing male sex hormones, including testosterone. 

In a study, sixty healthy men were given the herbal extract for six weeks. At the end of the period, all of them described that their sexual desires had increased considerably. More studies are required to prove this fact. However, the results seen in the studies done so far have been affirmative.

The Bottom Line

The natural supplements mentioned above have been proven to be effective in several trials. But these are not the only ways to help increase your libido. You should also try managing your stress and taking care of your health to get the best results. Lastly, don't forget to consult your healthcare provider before trying any of these natural supplements, or if you feel there has been a sudden change in your libido.
