Naturally occurring substances can be used, to put some missing spice back into your sex life, and if the desire is strong, why not?

Natural Alternatives To Viagra


Aphrodisiacs and sexual stimulants found in nature, have been sought eagerly by humans as long as they have been around. Rhino horn, ginkgo biloba, and oysters are but a few old favourites, along with herbs, roots, potions, and anything else that can theoretically enhance pleasure. Today, as ever was, these kinds of sex aids are still popular.
Swedish soft drink called Nexcite is one of the newer varieties. Brought out in 2008, blue in colour, fruit-flavoured, containing carbonated water, that has within it the herbal aphrodisiac damiana, along with ginseng, guarana ,and schizandra as well as the caffeine normally found in a large coffee.
This concoction, almost natural, will certainly get your hormones racing, as would. a completely natural compound, found in Venezuela, containing, ground-up ants and termites, chili peppers, and fruits. Made by the Yequana tribe Dr Elroy Rodriguez, of Cornell University, found that it had similar ingredients to the Viagra tablets made byPfizer, but was far more effective, as he could personally attest to after the tribesmen sprinkled some of it on his food.
Apparently, this and plant derivatives, from the Caribbean Dominican Republic, said to be the equal of the Yequana mixture, are now being investigated, and it is hoped that more serious chemical research willhelp to uncover 'natural' Viagras that might even be more potent than the synthetic ones.
Rhodiola Rosea, which looks quite pretty, grows in arctic regions, and it is claimed that extracts from it can boost sexual desire, both for men and for women, as well as possibly helping to prevent premature ejaculation. Exactly how the extract affects sexuality is unknown, possibly working on the dopamine system, in the brain, a very important aspect of libido and sexual function.
The ancient remedy of Gingko Biloba, best known for the boosting of mental powers, is also employed, in leaf extract form, to treat impotence in men. The male ability to achieve, and maintain, an erection during sexual stimulation is said to be improved through this treatment, ginseng, like Viagra, enhancing nitric oxide production, helping to relax artery walls, more blood flow into the penis thus being achieved..
The aptly named Horny Goat Weed is a leafy plant which grows, usually at higher altitudes, and is thought to improve erectile dysfunction in men and libido in both sexes, though also consuming foods that naturally boost the libido is also recommended, new research suggesting that couples eating lots of strawberries and bananas perform well in the bedroom
Traditional aphrodisiacs such as chocolate and oysters no longer top the list of libido enhancing foods, but are being supplanted somewhat by fruits, especially grapes, though 'passion' fruit recommendations cited smearing bananas over each other, and dipping grapes in warm chocolate, from the navel, before eating them.
The Cape fruit concern did a survey, asking 500 couples how often they enjoyed sex, and about lifestyle and fruit, discovering that those couples in their 40s and 50s were most keen on fruity romping, 41% using fruit during lovemaking, mainly through boredom with cream, ice cream or chocolate.
Middle aged people, it seems, are more adventurous with bedroom antics, while young couples, in their 20s, appear to be missing out on extra sexual pleasure, because they rarely, if ever use fruit during sex.
Muira Puama is well known to Amazonian natives, who use it regularly for boosting their own energy and health. Recreationally used, in most cases, to increase sexual desire, this plant extract does improve symptoms of erectile dysfunction, perhaps the reason for the natives calling it ‘potency wood’, and the best thing about is that there are no known negative side effects.
It is only natural that potency should diminish with age, though the desire will never die, but your performance will undoubtedly suffer. Naturally occurring substances can be used, to put some missing spice back into your sex life, and if the desire is strong, why not? Pleasure always comes in waves through good sex, so being able to enjoy it for as long as possible will justify taking any help you might need. I freely admit that I take whatever help I can get.

Interesting to see fruits pass those you mentioned as traditional - oysters and such. Great article for sexual health information and natural sources for sexual aphrodisiacs.
