Top Aphrodisiac Herbs Enhancing Male Sex Drive
An increasing number of men are dissatisfied with their sex drive, with many suffering from erectile dysfunction ( E.D.), low libido and impotence. Many factors contribute to this decline in male potency, including overwork, stress, lack of sleep, and estrogens in the environment, among others.
Many of these men are turning to the natural herb alternatives to Viagra, Cialis and Levitra being touted on the Internet, tv infomercials, radio, or in print ads. Most, if not all these men's herbal supplements are overpriced and many contain yohimbe, an herb known to raise blood pressure.
Such products may also be weak, and a waste of the consumer's money. Though there are some that may work, they usually have short term results, not building libido for boosting desire, hot passion, stamina and performance in the long run.
Instead of the dissapointing fare of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra alternative pills, the male consumer needs libido enhancer herb supplements that are less likely to cause the unwanted side effects, and that also build libido to address the underlying causes.
Enter safe and effective aphrodisiac to rescue the male mojo. Aphrodisiacs have been around for thousands of years, being mentioned in in the ancient Ayurvedic texts of India, the Bible, and in Chinese medicine - to name a few.
Indian Ayurvedic medicine looks at aphrodisiacs as "increasing ojas", the sexual essence. Various Indian sexual pills therfore use spices and exotic like cloves,
nutmeg, saffron and ashwagandha.
Chinese have a saying... ..."weak kidney, weak sex." In their system of herbal medicine they use terms like "yin" and "yang". Most Chinese sexual tonics aim at increasing yang, although yin is important as a foundation for deep rejuvenation of exhausted kidneys.
Think of yin as cool, yang as warm. Since yin also needed as a deep foundation, many formulas use both yin and yang in them. The popular "horny goat weed" is yang for example, while licorice is yin.
The overall idea is to increase what the Chinese call "jing" or "ching", which is the sexual essence that is similar to the "ojas" of Indian medicine. Increasing kidney energy (jing) and also "chi", or overall "life force", boosts sex drive.
There are in other cultures like maca from Peru, damiana from Mexico, and tongkat ali from Malaysia. These are single herbs, not an herbal blend as used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine. And they work more on testosterone and nerves , instead of kidneys.
Androgens like testosterone are naturally occuring in small amounts in some Chinese animal preparations. Some increase the bodies own production of testosterone from the leydig cells of the testicles, which also contributes to robust sexual drive.
There are alternatives to the many overpriced, hyped, men's sex boosters with glitzy packaging. The male consumer has the luxury of reasonably priced, safe, time tested and effective products of ancient cultures.
