For some of us, reaching middle age status poses a new set of challenges. Aside from the fine lines and body aches, there is often a decrease in sexual desire in both sexes.

I have good news for you! Nature did not forget about our physical desires. These are just a few of the best herbs to increase sex drive.

So, if your sex drive has taken a detour, you MUST check out these natural ways to increase sex drive, and get your love life back on track!

Maca Root Extract

Maca root….. Where shall I begin? My adventures with Maca root and increased libido were….. accidental.

I heard that maca root could help women gain a curvier figure and decided to try it.

I am sad to report that I remained slim, so the curves never appeared for me.

However, during my 12 week trial of maca root for “body modification” I was very, very, very ready and willing to spend quality time in the bedroom.

I have never been so interested in sex, as I was during this 3 month span. (My partner was relieved when I stopped taking it.)

In order to use maca root for a boost in sexual desire, it should be taken in two daily 1500mg doses. This works for both men and women.

There’s is no need take more than 3000mg daily. It will not increase desire any further!

Maca root is not like an instantaneous “blue pill”. It may take several days of doses, before you see a marked difference in desire.

Give it a solid week, and I guarantee you will feel effects.

It’s like being bitten by a magical arousal bug.

Panax Ginseng Extract

Panax Ginseng is a great herbal supplement for both men and women looking to increase libido. Studies have shown to effectively treat ED (erectile dysfunction) in some men, increase stamina, and improve overall physical performance.

It is worth noting, that it may also help prevent premature ejaculation. (You’re welcome.)

For treatment of erectile dysfunction, or to simply boost sexual desire 900mg three times daily is recommended, for both men and women.

Results, may become apparent rather swiftly, as increased circulation to the genitals happens shortly after dosing. So if you are trying to get intimate on short notice, panax ginseng is an ideal enhancement.

Panax ginseng is relatively safe, but may increase the effects of caffeine and blood thinners, so use caution if you plan to try this remedy.


Yohimbe is an effective sexual enhancer for both men and women. It has been touted as “herbal Viagra”.

Yohimbe increases blood flow, which is thought to be the foundation of its effectiveness at treating ED. This increase in blood flow also has little affect on blood pressure making it safer than some pharmaceutical treatments.

The recommended dosage of a yohimbe regimen is 2.7 mg three times a day. It may be gradually increased up to 5.4 mg three times a day, if necessary for desired results.

Yohimbe is off limits for those with renal disease, however, so use caution if you suspect you may have renal issues and consult with a physician first.

Saffron Extract

Saffron extract has a unique usage in sexual dysfunction. For anyone experiencing loss of sexual desire, due to the use of anti-depressants, Saffron extract is the solution.

Studies have shown that for people taking antidepressants, such as Prozac, using saffron extract is an effective was to restore sexual satisfaction.

For the rest of the population, experiencing loss of libido due to hormonal factors, saffron does not usually offer much help in boosting desire.

Dosing saffron extract as a long term supplement should be done at a maximum of two 15mg doses twice daily

Keep The Spark, But Keep It Safe

Always consult your physician, pharmacist, or herbalist before beginning a new treatment regimen to discuss drug interactions, or health conditions you may have, that would adversely affect your health.

Rekindling the fire in the bedroom can be as important as communicating with your lover. Healthy relationships take work, mentally, emotionally, and physically to stay in prime running condition.

Utilizing the gifts that our planet has given us to aid in a healthy, happy sex life is a great way to take advantage of nature’s bounty. I hope you find the herbal solution to your love life’s obstacles!
