Natural aphrodisiacs to help keep the cadence going.

Natural aphrodisiacs to help keep the cadence going.

23rd Aug 2022

What is an aphrodisiac? Thank you for asking. It is a nutrient that increases desire, sexual attraction, and pleasure.

Enough said. What are we throwing down the hatch? Obvious first choice are oysters. Even the tilt of your head back, ever so slightly is enough to get those tongues wagging. Oysters are filled to the brim with zinc, which can improve testosterone production and increase blood-flow to the prostate area. The same goes for our ladies, we need zinc for healthy hormone production.

Maca root is touted for helping us root – pun intended (we had to). Maca helps increase fertility and sperm production. You can add this in powder-form to your morning smoothie and then perhaps by afternoon, you could be having a sexy siesta.

Pomegranate has been shown to increase testosterone levels in both males and females. Yes, women need a smidge of testosterone for reproductive health. It is also a powerful antioxidant that can help combat stress, which often interferes at playtime so, start tossing these seeds that are packed full of fun into your salads immediately.

And of course, if you can't fit all of this in your diet, we are here to help! With our Libido for Him supplement.
