Low male libido can be increased by taking certain male supplements. In the first part of the article we will be looking at libido in general, and then we will discuss the best natural libido enhancing products. They are: Ginseng, L-Arginine, Pycnogenol, and Ginkgo Biloba.
Let’s Discuss Low Libido
Male libido can be affected by other aspects the man’s health. Low libido can be caused by various factors. It’s not just your moods that can affect your libido, but your diet too. These are some of the major factors:
Bad eating habits
If you are affected by any of the factors mentioned above, the best thing you can do is to start taking positive steps to improve your health and lifestyle in those ways. Once these lifestyle factors are sorted out, you will be much more likely to be able to get your libido back on track. Once you have got to that point, you can then start to consider taking some natural supplements to enhance your libido.
One of the best natural male supplements to boost libido, L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid. It is started to be thought of as a natural way to get similar benefits otherwise obtained by taking Viagra.
What is the mechanism of action that Arginine employs to boost libido? L-Arginine converts into Nitric Oxide in the body. So where does Nitric Oxide come into all this? What Nitric Oxide does is it boosts blood flow around the body (including to the penis) by relaxing the muscles of the blood vessels. This makes erections more likely to occur.
What makes L-Arginine a much safer alternative to a drug like Viagra (which has some bad potential side effects) is that it is an amino acid and therefore a nutrient.
Aginine plus Pycnogenol
If you want to boost your libido even more, you can add Pycnogenol when you take your Arginine, and this will give you even more of a libido boost. Pycnogenol is a natural bark extract taken from a tree which grows only in the Les Landes de Gascogne area of southwest France. It has been shown that a 90% increase in male libido can be achieved when taking Pycnogenol with L-Arginine.
For 7,000 years, China has used Korean Ginseng as a natural sexual tonic. Ginseng is still prescribed by Chinese medical doctors as a treatment for low libido in both men and women.
Studies have indicated that Ginseng causes an increase in blood flow to the penis in men with erectile dysfunction. It has also demonstrated its ability to increase sperm count.
Ginkgo Biloba is a unique type of tree growing in China. Medical research done on men with narrowed arteries in their penises has shown that they are able to obtain much better erections after taking the herb Ginkgo Biloba. You can either drink Ginkgo Biloba as a tea, or take it as a supplement.
