Natural ways to spice up your sex life

Our libidos are complicated and influenced by changes in our mood, diet, weight, age, stress levels and environment — to name a few. There are a number of natural libido boosters that may be worth playing with! 

A Peruvian root that can be taken as a powder or in a supplement. Maca has been used traditionally for centuries as a natural aphrodisiac. A double-blind study in 2002 showed that a 12 week ingestion of maca increased the sexual libido in men versus those taking a placebo.
Plus it tastes like butterscotch so is a great thing to throw into smoothies, baking, or top onto yogurt. Be mindful that maca can influence estrogen levels and should not be taken by anyone with hormonal imbalance (unless you are being advised by your nutritionist/GP).

Panax Ginseng
Ginseng is an ancient herb that has been traditionally used for years due to its reported aphrodisiac properties. For women, it has been shown in studies to improve the libido of post-menopausal women after taking three 1g capsules every day for a fortnight and for men it is reported to help improve erectile function.

Stress can be a libido killer. Whether you are thinking about your to-do list, worrying about the future or unable to switch off from work — none of these thoughts are very sexy! So how can we de-stress to help us get in the mood?

Enter CBD, which has been shown to reduce anxiety and stress by working on serotonin (our happy hormone) receptors. Why not try our MEDAHUMAN’s RELAX drink which delivers 20mg of CBD alongside calming herbs such as chamomile and lavender?

Don’t forget the importance of good nutrition
While trying out some natural supplements may be effective for some, there is nothing more important than eating a well balanced diet. Ensuring you are maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, managing stress and getting adequate nutrients through your diet, will set you up for good health, and give you the foundations required to take charge of your libido!
