6 Proven Ways To Boost Your Libido Naturally
Does your sex drive need a boost?
With spring coming (AKA mating season in the animal world), it is not only time for spring cleaning and body cleansing, but also for strengthening and renewing your relationship with your love.
Though it is not all about sex, sex is a vital component of a relationship, creating a beautiful physical connection. Moreover, sex in general is great for destressing and orgasms in particular are known to release oxytocin, which fights stress hormones. But if you are in the cycle of everyday stress, enjoyable sex and orgasms can be difficult.
If you are looking for natural ways to increase your libido for loving connections with your partner and for your personal health, here are 6 powerful tips you can try:
Believe it or not, self-care and ‘me time’ is crucial for your sex-drive. Women in particular tend to be constantly worrying about others. Providing for your family, children, friends and performing at work may consume your mind and you may easily forget about yourself. When this happens, sex can become a chore.
Make sure to take time for yourself: take a bath with epsom salt and essential oils for relaxation, exercise for healthy blood flow, journal for emotional release and meditate for balance. If your partner is dealing with low sex-drive, encourage him or her to take time for self-care regularly.
Maca may just be the number one most potent herb out there to boost your libido and hormonal health in general. One tablespoon of maca in your smoothies or raw desserts can go a long way with powerful benefits. You can also take it as a supplement.
3. DHEA Hormone
DHEA is an anti-aging vitality hormone. It is absolutely essential for healthy energy levels, mood and libido. However, starting in your mid-20s, your DHEA levels start to decline and become significantly lower by your 40s or 50s. Low DHEA levels can lead to fatigue and lower sex-drive. Get tested and if your DHEA levels are low, get a good quality supplement.
Ashwagandha is another powerful herb that is fantastic for hormonal health. It helps your body to adapt to stress by balancing cortisol and to rebuild your vitality and sex drive. You can try to supplement with ashwagandha, but you may also want to try our Organifi Green Juice which contains a healthy amount of this herb and other remedying benefits.
5. Get Off The Pill
Hormonal birth control actually has many unwanted short-term and long-term side effects. One of these side effects can be less frequent sexual activity, arousal, pleasure, orgasm and difficulty with lubrication. By choosing a hormone-free form of birth control such as condoms or natural planning, you can increase your sex-drive as well.
6. Watch Your Diet
Your diet actually affects your libido as well. Sugar, grains, dairy and conventional meat are the top foods that can sabotage your sex-drive. Choose a processed-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, mostly plant-based diet with lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Choose gluten-free grains and opt for pseudograins like quinoa and amaranth if you can. If you eat meat, choose organic grass-fed varieties. Eliminate or significantly reduce your consumption of dairy and eggs and if you must, choose organic.
Following these six powerful steps can significantly increase your libido and can also do some magic on your physical and emotional health.
