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)
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
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..
