Men and WOMEN: Herbs to Rev Up Your Sexual Libido

I'm reading The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook by James Duke Ph.D. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in health, healing and herbs.

I knew I had a good post topic when I came across the herbs that have been used for centuries to to increase sexual energy for both men and WOMEN. Some of these are on the shelf of your grocery store. Pregnant and nursing mothers should research thoroughly before ingesting ANY of these.

I like to take many of my herbs as a hot cup of tea. I find the tea ritual soothing. I bought a package of unbleached cotton tea bags/pouches at a healthfood store. Fill with the desired herb and pull the draw string. Afterwards, the bag can be washed, emptied and re-used.

I picked 3 of the most readily available herbs from a list of fifteen.

FENNEL

The easiest dosage option is to crush 1 to 2 tsp of fennel seeds (that you can buy in the herbs and seasoning section at the grocery store) and put in a cup of hot water to infuse into a tea, then drink up Do this 3x per day and then make a run to Victoria's Secret


GINGER

Either make a tea with 2 teaspoons of powdered ginger root once daily, OR take one standardized 450-550 mg capsule daily. You can also use lots of fresh ginger root in a stir-fry.


GINKGO

I take this to ward off Alzheimers. BUT, after taking 60 to 120 mg of gingko extract twice a day, 91% of women and 76% of men reported a higher libido, improved erection and lubrication, and better orgasms. You can find these capsules in the vitamin supplement section of the grocery or healthfood store. Stick to the recommended dosage. MORE IS NOT BETTER in this case.


Live healthy and have fun

    Never heard that about Ginkgo but then again I've never read up on it. Sounds interesting
Yes, I had no idea that I was killing two birds with one stone. With ginkgo, I'll not only be purring sexually, but I'll REMEMBER who I had sex with!

....your welcome My juicer arrived. I tripled your recipe because some days I don't have the energy to do the work of juicing and I can store juice up to 3 days. It was delicious! Thanks
