Have you lost your sexy sizzle? Let’s face it – there are so many challenges that get in the way of a satisfying sex life so you’re not alone if you feel your sex drive isn’t what it used to be. Even men and women who are young and physically healthy can have a low libido.
Some of the reasons for libido issues include stress, lack of adequate sleep, depression, anxiety, marital or relationship problems, life crisis, financial difficulties, problems at work, religious repression, feelings of guilt or shame, poor body image, or some forms of mental illness.
There are actually more similarities in libido arousal in men and women, than there are differences. Testosterone stimulates sex drive in men and women. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that has a similar influence in both sexes. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels in both sexes. Hormones such as DHEA and testosterone, found in men and women, can increase sex drive and sensation.
So if you have a low libido, don’t despair. The great news is that there are a number of natural libido enhancers that work effectively in women and men.
Oxytocin, the feel-good, “love hormone” is one. It is a natural hormone and neurotransmitter produced in the brain’s hypothalamus and plays an important role in the creation of intimacy and the stimulation of human bonding. Everyone needs oxytocin and everyone’s body was designed to release oxytocin. But it is common to have experienced stress and trauma to the point that the body’s natural ability to create oxytocin is depleted.
There are also several herbal libido enhancers that are becoming popular including maca, tongkat ali, horny goat weed, tribulus terrestris and yohimbe. Additional herbs and plant extracts include ashwagandha, avena sativa, Mucuna Pruriens, muira puama, and Rhodiola.
