Popular stories and internet lore are full of details on natural aphrodisiacs, but are there foods and herbs that will actually stimulate feelings of arousal and romance? Can a home remedy stoke your libido in order to help restore your potency and your love life? Earth Clinic readers have the answers on natural aphrodisiacs that really work!
Chocolate, cayenne pepper, honey, oysters, caviar, and all sorts of other more or less food-like items have been touted as natural aphrodisiacs but results are not always good. Generally, the right aphrodisiac is a personal reaction, but please be careful about using products for improving virility that are touted as safe and natural. Even the famous Spanish Fly can be toxic to the body.
Home Remedies: Gingko biloba and ginseng can improve circulation, which can address potency issues in menu and improve stimulation in women. Our readers support the use of Vitamin E, Mauby Bark, Maca, and avocados as natural aphrodisiacs to promote your sex life.

[YEA] IM CURED OF IMPOTENCE AFTER 20 YEARS!!
I started smoking at a early age but quit when i was 19 after smoking for 8 years. I quit but had no idea that i would be suffering from occasional impotence that started in my 20s increased in my thirties & horribly in my forties. I never was a fan of hot or spicy seasoning. But after i read about garlic curing impotence i was willing to give it a shot. But i also combined it with cayenne powder, i took almost a teaspoon of each at about 6pm knowing that i would be making love with wife about 9 pm. Folks i was totally shocked, i havent performed like that since i was 2O & THAT WAS JUST THE FIRST DAY.
The secound day i wanted to try it with two other herbs so i took-2 hawthorne berries capsules- 2 grapeseed seed extract capsules- teaspoon of cayenne pepper & garlic powder (this also i found can be substituted with cayenne capsules & galic capsules from any health store & take 2 of each with the other 2 herbs with juice or water 3 hours before sexual activity! My erections & recovery after orgasms at age 47 great Thank god i suffer no more! ALL 4 HERBS TOGETHER WILL MASTER & DEFEAT ANY TYPE OF ERECTIONAL PROBLEM YOU HAVE WITHOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS YOU GET FROM ED MEDICATION. THANKS FOR STARTING THIS WEBSITE....

Is 100 % cacao baking chocolate edible just like regular chocolate ? Or you have to include in the baking recipe first ? I like the taste because it has no sugar. Thanks

[SIDE EFFECTS] Hi Joyce/Lisa: I hope you guys can help me with this one. After reading so much about Maca, I decided to try it. I am hypothyroid and am currently on meds. After a few days of using the Maca, I noticed a slight chest discomfort. I started to get really worried wondering what could have caused it but did not even associate it with the Maca. This went on for about a week until I had to go out of town and of course left without the Maca. Well, what do you know - Around day 2, I realized that the slight pain was gone. I then reflected on what I was doing different and then suddenly realized that the Maca was the only thing missing during this time. I stopped using it since then and the pain never returned. Any idea why this happened. I was really dissapointed that I cant use it anymore because it seems like such a superfood. Please advice. I am grateful. Thank you guys so much.

[YEA] I inadvertantly discovered a natural aphrodisiac a couple of days ago! I was shopping for sodas that did not contain corn syrup at Publix on Friday and came across mauby bark concentrate, made in Trinidad and Tobago, sitting at the bottom of the shelf next to Jamaican-made sodas. It looked interesting, was made with cane sugar, and was inexpensive ($4-5, something like that), so I bought it. Mixed some up when I got home with seltzer water and that night I had 2 sex dreams! One sex dream once in a while, no problem, but 2 sex dreams in one night is unheard of.. ha ha... Needless to say the effect has lasted and I was requesting some "action" from my husband today. I like it. It tastes like root beer. I gave some to my husband and he said it made him feel great, but he hasn't yet noticed the aphrodisiac effect. Maybe it's viagra for the ladies? FINALLY! Warning - each serving contains a lot of sugar, same as a Coke (42 grams), so just be careful about that.
This morning I searched google for more information on Mauby Bark and found it is a very popular drink in the Carribean and that is is "reported to be an aphrodisiac", but no one knows for sure. The only study done on it was for hypertension and apparently, when mixed with coconut milk, works.
Here's a good thread for more info for anyone interested: http://slakethirst.com/2005/04/17/mmmm-mauby/. The one I bought is called Matouk's Mauby Drink Concentrate, but it looks like there will be lots of other brands selling it too. Carribean and international markets will carry it.

[YEA] Hi, sometimes (i'm thinking with hormone flucuations and whatnot) I have a low libido. It can go for months at a time. I have found that taking vitamin e does a lot for my body. I've even heard it been called an aphrodisiac. If you have a low libido, try it out- I was taking 400 IU capsules 3x a day. Sometimes I'd take just 2 or one.. see what works for you!
[YEA] Just wanted to report in about vitamin e after reading about it on your website as an aphrodisiac (sp?). I usually take vitamin e (400, natural e, not synthetic) when I start to feel pms strike. I don't feel I need it until then. The interesting thing is that if I take it 15 to 30 minutes before... you know, errrrrr.... love making with my hubby, I find that it takes me a very short time to reach orgasm. Usually at this point in my cycle (1 week before my period) I get a little numb down there. But when I take vitamin E, things are hot, hot, hot! Ladies, let your friends know -- it really does work!
[YEA] I totally agree with the nurse from NYC - Vit E does seem to be an aphrodisiac! I put a few drops in with a plastic spoon nightly, & after a while was aware that my vagina felt & smelt healthy for a change. Suddenly, after four & a half weeks, I had an unexpected surge of libido which has shown no signs of abating. I'm so happy to have got back what used to be a very important part of me & which after a 4 year 'drought' I had become convinced had gone for ever. Tell everyone about it! Especially women post menopause (like me), who think loss of erotic feeling is something they just have to get used to. Incidentally, I was already on a very good high Vit E diet

[YEA] A nurse at my college health clinic told me about vitamin E for vaginal dryness. Let me tell you, it works wonders! I take 1 capsule 2x a day. I also think that it is a aphrodisiac. Well, maybe it's just me. Hope to hear back from other women about this!

[YEA] I have been taking Effexor the past year now and, like many others, discovered how much it lowered my sex drive. I did a little research and came upon Vitamin E supplementation. It definitely helps... so does a lot of strenous exercise!
