#Lowlibido is often related to multiple factors such as:
While some of these reasons are easy to fix, there’s no magic pill for low libido and the first thing to do is to identify the cause to find the solution.
Balance your hormones Our hormonal system is very complex. If you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance including fatigue, poor mood, low libido, trouble sleeping, weight gain, dry skin, wrinkles, hot flashes, or vaginal dryness - consider having your hormones tested.
Gut Microbiota It’s hard to feel sexy when you’re bloated, gassy, or your belly aches. Find the root cause. Also, your gut produces hormones and neurotransmitters that influence libido such as dopamine and serotonin
Exercise Thirty minutes of strength exercise dramatically improves dopamine and libido.
Nutrition deficiencies Check for: omega 3, zinc, magnesium, selenium, vitamins A, D, E Check for: Cholesterol. It’s vital for hormone production. If you are vegan/vegetarian or taking statins, make sure you are getting enough cholesterol in your diet.
Eliminate stress & processed sugars It causes chronic inflammation, chronic cortisol production, adrenal fatigue, insuline resistance, gut dysbiosis, decreased serotonin, dopamine, and testosterone.
Use herbs wisely Herbs have been used for centuries as aphrodisiacs, but herbs can do more than enhance sexual desire. They can help set the mood, increase your libido and sexual pleasure.
Saw palmetto For both men and women. Women commonly complain of lack of energy, low libido, and menstrual problems like PMS and cramps; all of which can be helped by saw palmetto.
Vitex - One of my favorites to increase women’s sex drive is vitex agnus-castus. It also relieves PMS and menopause symptoms.
L-arginine Converts to nitric oxide (NO). NO, causes vasodilation, which promotes circulation and increased circulation to the genital region.
Red ginseng Several studies have observed that red ginseng is more effective than a placebo at improving erectile function
Fenugreek This herb appears to contain compounds that the body can use to make sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone.
