This adaptagenic blend focuses on sexual and reproductive health, reducing anxiety and stress to help couples to experience heightened physical and emotional excitement and overall amorous feelings. Herbal ingredients in this recipe include:
St John’s Wort –
Taking St. John’s Wort has been linked with increasing the amount of serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a feel-good chemical in the brain that people with depression are often low in. Some antidepressants work by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. Low levels of the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone can dampen libido. Biologically, it’s the surge of estrogen starting at the end of your period that shifts you into sexual mode. After a few days, an egg gets released and starts screaming to be fertilized. At this point, sex is definitely more interesting. Along with estrogen, women also have a smaller amount of the male hormone testosterone, nature’s way of making you sexually aggressive enough to get that egg fertilized.
Damiana – It's leaf had traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac by the Mayan people. The contemporary people of Central America still rely on damiana today for its usefulness in supporting a healthy libido. It has been well known among southwestern cultures as a sexuality tonic because the stimulation of the herb brings oxygen to the genital area. Damiana also increases energy levels; most often libido is low when we just have no excess energy to expend. Damiana has a dual effect. It can work quickly to stimulate the genital area by enriching the oxygen supply. Long-term use can improve sexual fitness and performance. Traditionally damiana was known as a men’s herb used for premature ejaculation and impotence. However, herbalists know this herb to be highly beneficial for women as well. This herb brings about desire and invites the mind to relax and “go with the flow.” This is helpful for busy people who can’t seem to get out of their head long enough to enjoy a sexual experience. It has also been proven to help women achieve the ability to orgasm due to the quieting of the mind. Damiana helps one to overcome sexual impotence and low libido due to its potential testosterone-like action.
Red Raspberry Leaf – Raspberry leaf, particularly the wild variety is very high in calcium. The leaves have a soothing uterine tonic and hence a very effective fertility herb.
Ashwagandha – Ashwagandha is a herb from the Ayurvedic system and is known for its apoptogenic qualities, this means that it strengthens the systems of the body against stress and everyday life. Apart from being a general tonic, it is an aphrodisiac, known for its ability to balance the male and female sex hormones. Ashwagandha has been traditionally considered an aphrodisiac. The legendary ‘Kama Sutra’ also mentions the plant as one of the very powerful sexual stimulants. When men start taking ashwagandha, the production of nitric oxide is stimulated in their bodies. As a result of this, the blood vessels that carry blood to the genitals are dilatated. This causes an increase in sexual desire and satisfaction. Ashwagandha has become a common form of treatment for loss of libido and even for erectile dysfunction. For men, it is said to bring "the strength of the stallion" to a man, enhancing his sexual staying power and libido. If there is a depletion of energy, it is known for nourishing male energy and is used to treat impotence. It helps to increase semen production, and improves the quality of sperm, therefore it is used to treat infertility in men.
Ginkgo – This herb is seen as an aphrodisiac because of its capacity to boost circulation and increase blood flow to the genitals. Ginkgo also lowers the stress hormone cortisol and enhances the production of testosterone, making this an excellent herb to use for performance related anxiety. By lowering sex related inhibitions and easing stress, Ginkgo can help to create the right mood for love. Ginkgo improves memory and concentration by allowing more blood to flow freely around the brain.
