Definition libido : the simple definition is sexual drive. If a man has low libido, that means he has a low sex drive. The definition in a woman is the same as in a man. A woman can have low or high libido which is influenced by hormones such as testosterone and other androgens, and also by neurotransmitters such as dopamine.
A natural solution
If you have low sex interest, consider using Passion Rx. Also consider LJ100, a potent extract of Tongkat ali.
I've experimented with a multitude of herbs and
supplements for the past 3 yrs. I'm a 50yr Asian male in great shape and no
serious health problems, but I've found that very few of these enhancements do
anything to enhance my sexual experience. A friend said he had tried something
called "The Black Ant" and had very strong erectile effects. I was skeptical
when I read the strange ingredients and was concerned that it may simply be a
front for some kind of drug. Since they are made in China are they subject to
any 'Truth In Advertising' regulations over there? Is there any way to assay
these capsules to find out what they really contain? I'm trying to avoid drugs
for sexual enhancement but it seems they are the only substance that have any
noticeable effects on me. Here is the list of ingredients in this product:**
BLACK ANT, helps treat rheumatoid arthritis, lumbago / back pain, increase
energy levels, decrease muscle pain after exercise, and enhance sexual potency.
It has a remarkable and lasting effect on hormonal activity, activates adrenal
gland, stimulates and improves body's immune system and improves sperm and fluid
production. Significantly increases sex desire (libido), induces and improves
erection for men and vaginal secretion for women. Regular usage has remarkable
rejuvenating effects. Ingredients: Polyrhachis vicina roger (Black Ant), Formica
Sanguinea, Ginseng (root) Hippocampi, Medlar, Proprietary Blend of Essential
Amino Acids and Trace Minerals. Here are typical packages of this product. You
can find these being sold on Amazon and eBay. After Googlizing the ingredients
it appears that the Roger & Sanguinea are types of ants, the Ginseng is a normal
herb, Hippocampi is ?, Medlar is Goji Berry?. I couldn't find any scientific
reference to this product nor any reference to it.I s something you could
evaluate for the public? I've never heard of ants containing any strong sexual
stimulating substance before, but I'm willing to try it as long as it isn't a
front for drugs.
There are many products made in China that include exotic names of plants, extracts of animals or insects, etc. Almost all of these are eventually found to be laced with some form of drug similar to Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, or others. In due time the FDA finds out about it and sends the company a warning letter. We are not familiar with this brand. The only way to know is to send it to a chemical lab to do a HPLC test.
Increasing it naturally
Increasing libido can be done by first reviewing the five major areas involved in human sexuality discussed below. Once you make sure there are no major mental or physical problems that are interfering with your sexual health, then increasing your desire and interest can be done with natural herbs and supplements.
Cause of no
or lack of
The cause in males is numerous and can range from mental to hormonal, neural, and also due to prescription medicines and even certain natural supplements. Certain pharmaceutical drugs such as chemotherapy drugs or blood pressure medicine or antidepressants can lead to no libido.
There are a few major cause of low libido in a man:
The causes of psychological lack of libido in men are numerous, and it is difficult to list them all, but most often low libido in man is related to depression, performance anxiety, marital stress or relationship problems, life crisis, financial difficulties, religious repression, or some type of mental illness. If a man has difficulty financially providing to his family, he will have low libido.
Due to low hormone levels or changes in such levels
Androgens, such as testosterone, are a major component of libido in a man. Testosterone levels decline about 1 percent each year in men, which may contribute to lower sexual function with aging. Replacement of androgens can be helpful in men with age related sexual dysfunction. Testosterone is available by prescription only. An over the counter hormones, such as DHEA, converts into testosterone and thus has a positive influence on sexuality in men. Pregnenolone is another over the counter hormone that may increase testosterone levels and thus enhance libido in a man.
I'm a 31 year old male whose testosterone level is
in the low end of the normal range and whose sex drive is fairly low. I've tried
several products usually containing yohimbe and I get two unpleasant side
effects. I was wondering if these side effects are common and if there is any
way to avoid them. Note that they happen even when I take a very small dose like
one quarter of the recommended dose. First, my scrotum feels "tight." It's hard
to explain but it feels kind of like a balloon with as much air as possible in
it without exploding. Second, after peeing, I get an uncomfortable feeling for
about 15 seconds and then gradually emit a little semen. I appreciate any
feedback you have.
Blood vessel blockage or reduction in flow
Alterations in the flow of blood to and from the penis are thought to be a common cause of male erectile dysfunction, but not necessarily libido. For instance, medical conditions such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), high cholesterol, hypertension, or diabetes reduce blood flow to the penis and genital organs thus leading to difficulty with erection or genital swelling. Additional factors that can impede blood flow include penile injury, surgery in the pelvic or abdominal area, and sitting on a bicycle too long. Men who log several thousand miles a year on their mountain bikes suffer scrotal damage that could reduce their fertility.
Biochemical and physiological, changes in neurotransmitter levels
Some chemicals involved in the human sexual response and libido include dopamine, acetylcholine, and nitric oxide. Providing dopamine enhancers can improve lack of libido in men.
Certain medical conditions are the cause of low libido, performance, or enjoyment. These include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, and neurologic disorders, and insomnia.
Libido due to drugs, doctor prescribed medications
Drugs that interfere with libido or sexual function include some anti-hypertensives, SSRIs, sedatives, and beta-blockers. Alcohol's negative affect on libido increases with age. Smoking can reduce genital blood flow.
My son never regained his libido for now 3 years
following use of Luvox. Have you ever run across a case of this? Is Passion Rx
useful in treating this if you have treated it or is there a better treatment.
Medical doctors have been stumped about the cause.
Antidepressants, of the SSRI class can cause sexual dysfunction in a large percentage of patients. Luvox is fluvoxamine maleate, a medication in the class of SSRIs.
I have been fighting a low libido for years. I
currently take 10mg of Celexa a day coupled with 300mcg of Wellbutrin to fight a
family history of depression. I am now 55 years old but about 5 years ago my sex
drive got noticeably lower. My doctor prescribed Androgel creme and I take a
total of 4 pumps per day. My total testosterone level went from 200 to 700 but
the " free" levels hardly budged at 30. My sex drive got a bit better but was
still suffering. Three months ago I read that DHEA supplements may increase the
Free levels. Unfortunately I started reading WAY TOO MUCH. I began taking 25 MG
of DHEA per day and my "free" levels of testosterone has gone up to 90! I also
began taking 50 mg of pregnenolone a day because I read it was good for my
libido. At the same time I read that Progesterone Creme actually lowers estrogen
levels in men so I started rubbing an eight of a teaspoon on my testicles 5
times a week (800-1000mg). I also read about the health benefits of melatonin
and threw in 3mgs per day for good measure. After 3 months of this cocktail I
have no sex drive whatsoever, dead, kaput. Mentally and physically I feel great.
Sex is a distant memory. What have I done?
Excess use of hormones, medications and certain supplements, such as 5-HTP or 5HTP, can have a negative influence on sexual health.
How to boost libido
To boost libido naturally, one can take sexual herbal products. There are many herbs that work well but you need to be patient since it can take a few days or a week or two. The medical community is skeptical that there are herbs that have this effect, but they are plainly wrong. To boost libido try Passion Rx, mucuna pruriens, tribulus terreistris, catuaba or muira puama, LJ100, and ashwagandha.
Q. My husband is a recovering alcoholic who has been on the wagon now for 2 years. We met while he was drinking and at that time he had a very active libido and now it is almost non-existent. He sometimes has some problems with ED as well. He doesn't always get completely erect like before he quit. Most things I read say that alcoholics lack libido, but that was not true for him. He says he doesn't even think about sex very often. We tried an herbal remedy before that was supposed to help, but it made him shakey and that sensation is too much like the DT's. Is there something that you would recommend? Also, do you know why Alcohol would have the opposite effect on him as opposed to everyone else?
A. Most of the libido herbs can cause a jittery feeling if taking in higher dosages, Passion Rx with yohimbe is liked by many people when used at a dosage of a quarter or a third of a capsule. Prostate Power Rx does not seem to cause any overstimulation.
Can I max my libido
with natural herbs or do I need to take a pharmaceutical drug or hormone?
You can max libido by taking Passion Rx with yohimbe, LJ100, tongkat ali, mucuna pruriens, or a number of booster herbs, you don't need to take a medication or drug.
Q. Well, ive been experiencing problems with
libido for a long time, and studing the most as I can to find out the answer. I
already tried hormones like testosterone, hcg, dhea and also herbs like tribulus
terrestris, and also
vitamins from a to z. I eat lot of stuff of different kind. The only thing that could make a difference was yohimbine, but not enough. I just need to take one pill of it in the beginning of the day and in the night I can feel pleasure.
A. It is impossible to predict which herbal product will work in any individual. Passion Rx is quite popular for libido lifting but other herbs could be tried such as tongkat ali or mucuna pruriens.
Q. I am a 21 yr old woman with low libido. I am
looking for something that can help with the inability to become aroused and
that is safe for nursing mothers. Do you have anything that could help a woman
with low libido?
A. Many of the sex herbs could help, it is difficult to know which one would help low libido in any particular person. As to the safety while nursing, we are not aware of studies done with aphrodisiac herbs for low libido that have looked into the safety issue while nursing. However, most herbs for low libido are taken only 3 or 4 days a week.
Q. Dandelion root is not mentioned as a libido enhancer -- that being said, without dandelion root I have no or low libido.
I read an article about DHEA and got scared i really do not know what to do .I am 44 yrs old, i do not smoke or drink, or ever used drugs, but lately i am so stressed and sleeping average 4 to 5 hours per night anyway, my libido is decreasing so bad and lately i started taking Viagra pills, you have erection but you still have low libido. i fell like i am doing something that is not giving me pleasure. i was not like that in the past! i bought a DHEA 50 mg but i did not have courage to take it after reading Dr. Sahelian's web page (side effects) anyway i am planning to start with 5mg do you think it will cause increasing libido? Would you think 5 mg it is a good dose to start?
How long do other libido enhancement drugs take to
leave your system? I am interested in your product but note that combining can
be dangerous. I'm taking an enhancer for females which includes Pregnenolone and
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) which were specifically mentioned as not to
combine. How long before I can safely take your product?
Stopping the hormones for 2 days before taking a sexual herbal supplement should be fine.
My bottle of passion Rx with Yohimbe arrived today. I
am 73 years old, extremely fit and am in excellent health (also confirmed by
blood tests and medicals) and the only medicine that I take is LEVOTHROXINE
0.1mg for a low thyroid. I use penile injections as I cannot sustain an erection
during intercourse. Sine my wife passed away 4 years ago, I have a low libido
and also find it very difficult to ejaculate. The reason for purchasing your
product is to increase libido and more importantly, to increase sensitivity with
a view to be able to ejaculate. I understand that this may be due to
psychological factors but perhaps with increased sensitivity, I am hoping be
able to overcome the problem. I will start by taking a half a capsule for 2 days
on and then a day off. I will only use the injections on the day that I do not
take the product. Would you agree with the above 2 points?
We cannot advise on how to take a product since that is the role of your physician, but this seems to be a reasonable approach as long as your health care provider approves.
I am 52 years old an take Viagra but my my libedo is
low i take 150mg Avapro for high blood pressure but if you have something that
will work on my libedo i would appreciate.
Avapro (irbesartan) is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. It may be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents. The interaction of this blood pressure medication with herbal remedies for libido enhancement are not clear.
Greetings from Dubai.
General Questions For lack of libido, Premature ejaculation due to Psychological
reasons and physical debility what is better Passion Rx or Set of Natural Sex
booster? What are the other health benefits of Natural Sex Booster Is Passion Rx
with Yohembine far better or marginally better than just Passion Rx? For how
long ( months )can be taken? Is it a SOS pill or regularly taking pill? Shipping
Questions. I want the suppliments in Dubai. Do you have record of sucessfully
delivering the suppliments in UAE / Dubai by Global Express ? My son is studying
in USA and will come to Dubai in future holidays , can the suppliments be
delivered their But in this case the packing should be such that it does not
mention Sex Suppliment etc to save me from embarresment in front of my son.
The combination of several products in Natural Sex Boosters works better, Passion Rx is more potent with yohimbe than regular passion. These pills can be taken as many months or years as you wish as long as you take a week break each month. It takes several days after beginning the pills to notice a major benefit. The packaging would not say anything about sex, will ask the shipping dept to let you know about Dubai shipping.
