#1 – Fenugreek

Fenugreek seeds are used as a spice in Indian, African and Arabic food. Past studies have shown it to have a positive effect on blood sugar maintenance in diabetics and its cholesterol-lowering effects for those with high cholesterol and high triglycerides. Fenugreek seeds are rich in a chemical compound known as saponins. According to a study in Phytotherapy Research(1), one of the common saponins found in fenugreek is diosgenin, a steroid-like precursor for the synthesis of a number of sex hormones.

  • 82% of the men in the study reported an increased libido.
  • 63% reported improved sexual performance.
  • 67% reported improved sexual recovery time.
  • 82% reported increased general energy levels.

#2 – L-Arginine

L-arginine is a chemical building block called “an amino acid.” It’s necessary for the body to make proteins. L-arginine is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. L-arginine has been used to improve the immune system as well as for heart and blood vessel conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. A study published in International Journal of Impotence Research(2) also found L-arginine helps improve erection quality, by relaxing and widening the blood vessels in the penile tissues. In fact, it’s so effective, it’s also a treatment option for men suffering from erectile dysfunction.

#3 – Avena Sativa (Green Oats)

Avena Sativa is a sexual booster for both men and women. It works by freeing up testosterone that gets stuck to various compounds in the body.  As we age, the bounding-up of testosterone gets worse.  Bound testosterone is not as effective as free testosterone in heightening sexual thoughts and pleasure in both men and women. Although it’s been found that women need higher doses of avena sativa, it’s been found that 68-70 percent of men and approximately 76 percent of women saw increases in libido and sexual pleasure.
