I have been taking Apple Cider Vinegar for 2 weeks now results are great so for, I am 63 yrs. old I have way more energy and way more sex drive. Highly recommended. 3 oz a day.
I still can't believe that this remedy has helped me with my sex drive. Just last week my husband was telling me that I was turning into a 80 year old woman. Not to mention that my parents probably get it more than my husband. After taking ACV my husband can't keep me off of him I thought it would be crazy that it would be the Apple Cider Vinegar. I googled it and found this. I take 4 tablespoons mixed with a half of cup of water and 1 tablespoon of natural honey. Once a day tried it for the last week.
OMG ACV works to increase female libido!
There is no question that ACV works for me in the enhancement of my libido. I mix a tablespoon with honey and heat it up. It is a little intense but it is worth it. Totally sick of feeling asexual. This work better than anything.
(Just had to share because I came upon this remedy by accident.)
A very unexpected but welcome side effect I experienced when I started taking Chlorophyll drops. I initially started taking a daily dose in a large bottle of water because my blood pressure is so low; as a woman around period time, I was always completely wiped out and exhausted. I wondered if my iron was low, and that lead me to try chlorophyll, which is a blood builder. A week or two in, I saw a very drastic increase in my drive. Like, a huge increase. It came out of the blue and I can only attribute it to the drops. This stuff makes you feel not only energized but I feel like it really increases blood flow to every part of your body.
I have started taking Apple Cider Vinegar two days ago...And I am having a side effect that no one else so far has reported. My sex drive has doubled. As well as my energy has went through the roof. No weight yet but have only been taking it for a couple of days...Will update later...
I stumbled upon this, supposedly from UCLA and Univ. of Cal. Any earthclinic experiences out there?
"Pomegranate boosts sex drive and fights prostate cancer."
Luckily, I'm far from prostate cancer, but I can confirm that pomegranate juice indeed seemed to increase my sex drive.
"The new research incorporated 53 male subjects with libido problems. After a month, about 50 % of the subjects said that their sexual performances increased after consuming pomegranate juice."
"A quarter of litter of pomegranate juice daily raised the stability period of prostate cancer by 4 times, with such a significant effect... "
Ladies, I must be the lucky one. After 7 weeks post surgery I am going strong, but very carefully...of course. But Im going to share my vitamin protocol with you. I was horny after three weeks of surgery.(yes,.. i waited!!) I had lyposc hyst while keeping my ovaries. i had a severe prolapse from a hard labor 19 years ago..! I have always had a great sex drive and have been very good with how I approach my health. I am 42 and have been using apple cider vinegar and water as a supplement for twenty years. I eat very well with juicing my veggies and using coconut oil. But... for the sex drive I have been taking Fennugreek and saw palmetto for quite a while. I find that taking the saw palmetto seperately about an hour or so before I plan my attack is better. I also started adding dong quai with my fennugreek three weeks before my surgery for the added benefit of helping my hormones. Fennugreek, and dong quai are estro helpers and toners. Saw palmetto is more for the male prostate but is also a female toner and great for the libido. L arginnine is in all the sex supplements and I have also been using this for years as I am in the army and do alot of training with various aminos.
Daily I take Fennugreek and dong quai in the morning with my breakfast and in the afternoon when i come for lunch I take my saw palmetto. Now i must tell you that i take my supplements not for sex but because I will personnally NEVER take hormones because of my surgery. Thats just my creed and i am not a doctor but I am blessed with my health and happy I recoverered so well. I also take Kyrogreens everyday in my juice or shake and I have noted on the website" Earthclinic" that others have said that the Kyrogreens helped them with libido. Again, I take this supplement because it contains greens like kelp and wheatgrass ( yesssss..I am one of those...) not for the other. For extra stealth in the bedroom I take 2000 mg L arginnine plus 4 x.320mg saw palmetto if you're planning on sex within a couple of hours. I prefer to get my supplements from Swanson herbs as they carry good extracts and are almost as cheap as MOI. I hope this helps someone, I almost never blog but our health is our energy and we should treat ours bodies as blessed friends.. Give a hoot ...dont pollute..
sorry my english. I have the same experience. About 1 week on ACV (2 tablespoons) with baking soda (1/4 teaspoon) twice day, my sexual energy has doubled. I has a normal erection, after some years with probs about this concern.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I am a 48 year-old-woman, in menopause, and after taking ACV for a month I have had the same sexual side effect and much more energy. It ´s really incredible! Plus, I have cured my sinus infections at last!
Raspberry Ketones! I started taking these to see what the benefits might be, and the first thing I noticed was my sex drive became out of control! I was horny all the time! I bought the supplement in tablet form, and took the recommended dosage.
Maca really helped my libido!! Big time!!
Don't take ACV neat..it has to be diluted. I have started taking a tablespoon in 8 ounces of water and will see how it goes.
Lost libido, ability to have orgasm, and natural lubrication (and inability to lose weight, zero energy, focus, etc, etc) in '94 following mastectomy and chemo. Multitude of drs no help. During hospitalization for pancreatitis in Feb. '13 (20 days), I got b 12 injections for 7 days. Drs later decided I wasn't really deficient, but within days, I had surge of libido. Over next 6 months lost 50 lbs, rediscovered muscle and concentration, etc. Effect started dropping off. Taking oral 5000 mcg but weight loss hasn't picked up. Just started using patch. Libido is improving again. Orgasm too. Following paleo diet (stopped chronic sinusitis and psoriasis). Using many supplements recommended here including mg (great for restless legs but no effect on libido), maca , vit d, vco, Apple Cider Vinegar and more. They helped with many things but not libido. Will continue experimenting. Definitely feel b 12 caused my turn around. Wish my various drs were less hidebound. Shame to spend 20 years begging for help and one simple blood test revealed it.
I was looking through cold showers, which led to cold thermogenesis. Tried cold showers as a lark. What an array of benefits. Better digestion, better skin, higher quality sleep, better energy and a completely unexpected side effect, better libido. Ladies, try this before you try hormones etc.
I lost my libido when I went on birth control pills, and after taking them for three months I switched to a non-hormonal copper IUD. After stopping, I waited six months and still experienced a very low sex drive (not as low as while on the pill, but still quite low). It was having a very negative affect on my sex life, so I looked into remedies and tried cayenne pepper. I am only posting this because the results were so profound. Within 20 minutes of taking it (I stirred it into some water) my sex drive skyrocketed and I experienced an amount of lubrication that I had very rarely experienced in the 9 months prior. I took it again for the next few days, and my libido remained high. It continued to increase for the next few weeks, although I stopped taking the cayenne. I am not sure what exactly the cayenne did, but I no longer suffer from decreased sex drive, and I have not taken cayenne in over a month. It somehow broke through the wall that was keeping me from arousal. I would say that it could be coincidental, but my libido literally began to improve dramatically 20 minutes after my first dose of cayenne, and has been consistently high since then.
I had the same experience. I am in perimenopause and have almost zero interest in sex. Probably 20-30 minutes after taking cayenne pepper, I wanted sex. Lubrication was greatly increased and the orgasm was unbelievable. I started taking 1/4 teaspoon twice a day-just started yesterday.
My energy has been really good and my achy knees and legs feel at least 90% better. I can't wait to see how I feel in a couple months.
I drank lemon balm, 30 drops on a half cup of water every day and was soooo horny! I wasn't dating so it wasn't good to be crawling on the walls fantasizing about every single good-looking men I saw on the street! LOL
Also, months after I stopped taking the lemon balm, I took apple cider vinegar, 3 tablespoons a day. Result: horny again :D
Apple Cider Vinegar
I also experienced a libido increase. I am 37, recovering alcoholic and drink 2 tbs of ACV per day, also 1 tbs of molasses per day. I have had trouble with low libido for 5 years and it has increased this past week by approximately 50 percent! Also energy has increased greatly!
Apple Cider Vinegar
How long does it take for the apple cider vinegar to start working in your system?
Being in my early 50's I've experienced a significant decrease in my libido over the past several years. Various factors can be attributed to it, age & increased stress, etc. Although a part of me doesn't miss the added distraction of testosterone, I decided to experiment with many different natural enhancers. Most have a general stimulating "edgy" effect which I don't care for. I recently started taking Hydrilla for an occasional food based Calcium and a surprising side effect has been with my libido. More so with erectile dysfunction than enhanced desire. It is considered a nuisance weed, but it is loaded with minerals, so it probably had something my body was lacking. It has a calming (calcium) effect as well.
EC: More information about Hydrilla on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrilla
What brand of chlorophyll drops did you used, and how many?
How much maca did you take? What type powder capsule or tincture? If powider was it red white or black maca..? How long before you noticed higher libido..? Thanks
Apple Cider Vinegar
How do you take it?? Straight or diluted in water??
Here are multiple remedies for increasing libido:
Scientist discovered that watermelon is high in citrulline. When the body discovers citrulline it converts it to arginine. This is an amino acid that does amazing things to the circulatory system. It also boost nitric oxide in the blood which is the same thing Viagra does. It relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow. All the benefits of Viagra, naturally. Note: Even higher concentrations are in the rind. Try blending the rind into smoothies!
- Dark Chocolate
People have talked about chocolate as an aphrodesiac for years. But recent studies have show why it can have effects similar to viagra for me. Chocolate contains flavonoids that increase the formation of endothelial nitric oxide. As you may know this is the same goal of viagra. It relaxes the vessels and improves blood flow to all of the ?important' areas of the human body.
- Hot Peppers
If you like spicy food then you are already headed in the right direction. Peppers like Cayenne and paprika contain Capsicum. This increases blood flow in the body tremendously. It also helps long term with heart health since capsaicin reduces platelet stickiness and helps relieve pain too. Spice up your food, spice up your love life!
Raisins have high amounts of arginine. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body. (WebMD)
- Cardamom (Elaichi)
Elaichi is a potent tonic and stimulant. It not only helps to strengthen the body it also fights sexual dysfunctions like premature ejaculation and impotency. Not only does it relieve the problem it also helps you feel energetic and last longer in bed. (the health site)
Low Libido Remedies
Are there any natural treatments to heighten male libido? There are several meds and illnesses on board that cant be changed.
@Elissa: Most natural treatments for low male libido is herbs or supplements to boost testosterone. There is a notable exception of the herb Yohimbine, which acts very much like Viagra or Cealis (these substances improve blood flow).
How any of these would effect the preconditions and meds you didn't mention specifically, don't know. The illnesses and meds themselves will obviously decrease male performance, so it would be advised to improve upon these conditions w/ a more holistic approach which would include healthy diet, supplements, and exercise. A nutrition counselor or chiropractor or naturalpathic doctor would certainly help improve overall health.
There is an abundance of testosterone boosting supplements on the market and advertisements everywhere now days. Look on the shelfs of any supercenter, grocer, healthfood store, or pharmacy. The more ingredience listed the better. Read all info on bottle and start w/ minimal doses.
As for something specific right now, I would recommend Avena Sativa (Wild Oats) as it increases tissue levels of testosterone, not production. Stinging Nettles works similar to A. S. But also supports prostate gland function (which improves male function). The minerals zinc & selenium are very important for male health.
