Hot Herbs to Spice Up Your Sex Life!

Sexual health is a touchy subject, no doubt. But it’s also a big part of overall health and wellness, so I wanted to share some helpful natural health information from our friend Chris Kilham, “The Medicine Hunter.” Chris shared his list of top herbs for sexual health over on the FOX News Health Blog. So read up and get ready to crank up the romance.

Tongkat Ali
A Malaysian root found throughout Southeast Asia is finding its way into the bedroom. Alternatively known as pasak bumi, Tongkat Ali has been used by native rain forest tribes as a natural aphrodisiac for centuries. Thanks to new research, tongkat ali is emerging as one of the most promising natural intimacy aids ever studied. Check out what one satisfied Swanson customer had to say about Tongkat Ali: "My husband was losing interest in the bedroom area but after taking this product he is back to his old self and maybe even better!"

Rhodiola rosea is the premium choice to counteract the mental and physical effects of stress, which we all know can have a devastating impact on sexual health and romantic interest. This potent herb helps reduce levels of stress hormones while supporting levels of key brain chemicals involved in regulating mood. It makes sense that if your mood and stress levels are where they should be, you should feel back to normal in the bedroom, too. And while Tongkat Ali is more advantageous for men, Rhodiola is a perfect herb for both men and women.
Supercharge your sexual batteries for enhanced performance and pleasure with Yohimbe. This West African herb is world-renowned for its ability to promote male sexual function by supporting healthy circulation to the genital region. For many men, this is the biggest problem in the bedroom. Skeptical this odd-sounding herb really helps? Read this review: "I'm 44 and I tried this and I felt like I was 20 again. I took 3 pills a few hours before bed time and I was amazed after the 5th time that night. My girl was impressed."
Horny Goat Weed
Perhaps the best name ever coined or a sexual health supplement. But make no mistake—although it may have a funny name, horny goat weed is a serious herbal supplement. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 2,000 years, it is now available around the world to help invigorate male sexual vitality. In fact, it is one of the more popular male health products out there. (See how horny goat weed got its name.) “I suggest you already be home before you take this,” wrote one reviewer.
Even the name sounds powerful, doesn’t it? Maca! This intimacy enhancing herb actually dates back to a very powerful civilization, the Incas of Peru. Maca is another dual-purpose herb, supporting the sexual satisfaction and performance for both men and women. The Peruvian natives continue to rely on Maca for sexual support, but it’s now available worldwide for everyone’ delight.

Those are just five of “The Medicine Hunter’s” top ten herbs for sexual health. See the full list here.
