How to Naturally Increase Your Sex Drive
Sure, medication can certainly enhance your sex drive and performance immensely. But what additional steps can be taken on your own in order to increase your drive in a more natural way?
It turns out, a healthy combination of medication and the keys listed below can result in libido heightened far beyond what either solution can provide alone. There are five keys to naturally increase your sex drive.
The correlation between weight loss and heightened sexual performance has been a popular topic in modern science. Earlier this year, Men’s Health, proved that weight loss facilitated the flow of blood to the penis, thereby leading to stronger erections. Similarly, last year, Health.com noted heightened sexual drive after a 5-10 weight loss in an experiment with middle-aged Australian men.
Only recently, however, has the science behind men’s sexual performance been bolstered with concrete scientific evidence. In a study by Mayo Clinic, men who exercised at least two and a half hours per week while incorporating a healthy diet saw a 15 percent increase in testosterone levels as well as a 46 percent decrease of hypogonadism, a common cause of low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Natural Food and Libido Supplements
It comes to no surprise that eating well does indeed impact the way your body functions. What is rather surprising, however, is that your blood flow is strongly connected with the amount of vitamins and antioxidants consumed. Eating five to nine fruits and vegetables daily can not only maintain good blood flow to the sex organs but also helps prevent certain chronic diseases. There are also natural supplements that are rumored to heighten sexual performance. Although there is little concrete evidence, Yohimbine has been used in Africa for many years as an aphrodisiac and is often considered a natural Viagra. On the other hand, Gingko Biloba has been scientifically proven to increase blood flow not only to sex organs, but also to the brain.
Consume in Moderation
Alcohol intake is somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy. People often drink to loosen up and to get more in a sexual mood. One or two drinks may indeed have this type of effect; however, over consumption often leads to impotence.
Smoking also impedes libido by restricting your blood flow. Blood has a hard time flowing to sex organs through narrow blood vessels caused by excessive smoking.
The keys listed above all have scientific backing that clearly describes how libido is increased. Massaging, on the other hand, is more of a mental tool to increase your or your partner’s sex drive. Especially when stressed, massaging is a great way to relax your body and mind. It often has arousing effects as well if done correctly.
Nothing is more powerful in physical performance than your mentality. The brain has the ability to control your body far greater than any substance you consume. Anxiety, stress or low self-esteem can have very negative impacts on your libido and sexual performance. Instead, confidence and optimism can provide you with the necessary natural supplement to perform at your best.
