There are a variety of things that you can do to naturally boost your libido. If your sex drive is lacking, you and your partner are sure to notice.
This could be because of low testosterone levels in your body. If you are experiencing irritable male syndrome (IMS), hair loss, weight gain, fatigue, low sex drive, and many other things it may be because of low T levels. This is not the end of the world as there are many things that you can do to increase your sex drive. Still be careful as low T levels can lead to cardiovascular disease. Testosterone is very important for your sex drive, so you will want to make sure that your T levels are where they are supposed to be. It is not always a medical problem, so there are many natural remedies out there to help you improve your sex drive. Here are just a few natural remedies to help enhance your sex life.
Try certain fruits
There’s not a lot of science behind some fruits helping to raise your sex drive, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Bananas, avocados, and figs are just some examples of fruits that people believe boost libido. It doesn’t hurt to start eating these foods, especially since they are full of important vitamins and minerals. If you are eating the right vitamins and minerals you can also improve blood flow. By improving blood flow, you will be able to last longer in the bedroom.
Try eating chocolate
Although there is no scientific evidence to support that chocolate is a hormonal aphrodisiac, it is psychological one. When someone eats chocolate, especially from their lover, they tend to find it more appealing, and they release endorphins, or “feel good hormones.” Whether you two have a chocolaty dessert or you feed your partner truffles in bed, it is sure to be that something extra that you will both love.
Try these herbs
When you and your partner sit down for a romantic dinner, try adding basil or garlic to your dish. Much like the fruits, there isn’t a lot of science to back up their libido increasing qualities, but can it hurt to try? Basil can stimulate the senses of your partner and lead to an easier arousal. Garlic can help to increase blood flow, and as stated above this can help in the bedroom. There is also talk that these two herbs may help men with erectile dysfunction.
This is an alkaloid found in bark of the West African evergreen, and it can be used as a natural Viagra. There have been studies that this can help to keep an erection and it can improve the quality of the erection. This is not saying that it is an equivalent to Viagra, but there is potential for the alkaloid to be used in the bedroom.
The way you feel about yourself can affect your sex life. If you are unhealthy or do not exercise, it can cause you to have a poor image of yourself. This can translate into the bedroom and keep you from enjoying sex. You should be focusing on the pleasure that you get from sex, not on what you think is wrong with you. This will also help your partner as your sex drive will increase.
Keep your drinking under control
When it comes to drinking, whether it be on a date, or just at home with your significant other, you should keep your drinking under control. It is suggested that you only have one glass of wine or two beers, if you want to be intimate. The alcohol can help to ease your mind when it comes to sex, but too much can cause an uncomfortable experience, I mean you don’t want to be throwing up in her closet, right? On top of that terrible image, alcohol can affect erectile dysfunction. It can also keep you from orgasming.
Stress is one of the leading causes of low T levels. Even if you are extremely healthy, it is really important that you keep your stress levels low. It is good for your overall health as well as your sex drive. Try not to use sex as a stress relief too often, as your partner may not be thrilled with this approach. Try other approaches like playing sports, going to the gym, or any other physical activity to release stress.
Get enough sleep
You need to get enough sleep to keep your testosterone levels up. If you are too busy for sleep, then you are probably also too busy to have a good sex life. Sex includes making your partner happy, and if you are too tired, then the sex will probably be lacking. If you are exhausted your sex drive will go down, and that is no good for you or your partner. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep every night so that you can perform adequately in your life and in your bedroom. Getting enough sleep is important for your overall health. Make sure that you are making sleep a priority in your life.
Pay attention to your relationship
If you and your partner are angry, you are less likely to have sex. It is important to put your relationship at the top of the list to keep you both happy. If you have unresolved conflicts, this will harm your sexual relationship. Once your sexual relationship is on the rocks, your emotional one will be too. Make sure that you are paying just as much attention to your emotional relationship as you are to your sexual relationship.
Talk to your physician
Even if you only want to use natural remedies to increase your sex drive, you should still consult your physician. There are many reasons why your sex drive may have lowered, so you really should consult a professional, even if you only want to take a natural approach. They will be able to help you if it is something more serious.
