Happy, healthy relationships can bring us so much joy; and when your body and mind are in healthy, harmonious balance, you’ll find you enjoy greater harmony in your relationship too. Good sexual health is a big part of an overall healthy relationship, and health-conscious couples will know that the best way to keep the passion alive is with natural products that are also created with love. We’ve picked out some of our top natural naughty-and-nice hormonal balancers and libido-boosters – some of them might surprise you! Plus we have a yummy, aphrodisiac-packed hot chocolate recipe to sweeten the deal.
Maca is one of the world’s best-known natural aphrodisiacs. This tasty superfood increases stamina and enhances libido in both men and women. Maca was revered in ancient Incan culture for its aphrodisiac properties, and today it’s also known as a hormonal balancer; a great addition to daily shakes and smoothies.
Grab Some Garlic
Yes really! Pungent garlic is the seasoning we all tend to tactfully avoid on dinner-dates; however, it’s a great source of allicin, which boosts the circulation and has also been linked to better sexual performance for men.
Chocolate & Kisses
There’s nothing like sharing a bit of chocolate with your sweetheart – and the good news is, this sweet indulgence is a great natural aphrodisiac too. Real, raw organic chocolate (made with the superfood cacao rather than processed cocoa) has great mood-boosting and antioxidant properties. Plus it’s a natural source of PEA (phenyl ethylamine), the feel-good chemical your body releases when you fall in love!
Keep Stress in Check
Feeling stressed out can seriously affect your sex drive, as your body starts to feel the physical and emotional effects of stress and tension. Make time to meditate or practice yoga to relieve stress, and give your body some natural support with a herbal adaptogen.
Get Going with Ginkgo
Ginkgo biloba is a natural energy-boosting supplement that enhances the circulation, helping to combat impotence in men and promote greater stamina in both partners.
