Beauty and healthy

Since time immemorial, men have employed a variety of plants to increase their sexual potency, performance and desire. However, men aren’t the only ones who benefit. Women, too, can suffer from a flagging sex drive, and the use of herbs in women for this purpose is well-documented. In most cases, the same herbs that help men will also increase a woman’s libido. Here are some of the most popular ones.

Hot Peppers
Few people realize that hot peppers have benefits other than making food spicy. Among these are its uncanny ability to enhance sexual desire due to improved blood flow to the genitals. When blood is not being adequately supplied to the vaginal area, there is little sensitivity, so it’s not as easy to feel turned on. Even if you like the idea of having sex, your body may simply not be getting the message. Proper blood flow is also important for lubrication. Without it, sex can be painful or uncomfortable. To reap the rewards of hot peppers, all you have to do is add them to your food.

Tongkat Ali
This hardy Southeast Asian tree has been used traditionally to enhance men’s sex drive and virility. The herb has equally powerful effects on women because it raises levels of free testosterone in the blood. Even in women, more testosterone equals more sexual interest, sensitivity and responsiveness. Tongkat Ali is widely available as both a standardized extract and a whole herb powder. Some people recommend that this herb be taken in three-week cycles for maximum benefit.

Damiana
Damiana was traditionally used by the Aztecs and has long been considered to be a women’s herb. One of the ways it works to enhance libido is by increasing the delivery of blood to the vaginal region, much like hot peppers do. However, the herb also has mood-enhancing properties. It has been shown to decrease the negative effects of stress, relax tense muscles and impart feelings of calmness.

Shatavari
This ancient Indian herb is a common sight in decorative plantings. Also called asparagus fern, shatavari is coveted for its roots. It is used extensively by women under the system of traditional Indian medicine known as Ayurveda. Shatavari is said to enhance vaginal moisture, improve fertility and supply the female reproductive system with nourishment. You can find shatavari in a capsuled supplement form, but it can also be freshly dug from the soil and made into a tea. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it. Shatavari also increases prolactin levels, which suppress libido considerably in large amounts.

Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Today, it’s most well-known benefits are memory enhancement and improved cognitive function. However, it also increases libido in women through the exact same method. Ginkgo is a vasodilator, a substance that opens up the blood vessels and allows greater volumes of blood to flow through the body. This leads to improves oxygen delivery to both ends of your body. The brain is heavily involved in sexual arousal, so more oxygen makes it more effective at thinking of and reacting to arousing things. With more oxygen downstairs, you get far more sensitivity and better orgasms.
