Libido: A word that immediately grabs one's attention when mentioned. Despite the pioneering work of Sigmund Freud, who made sexuality a topic of discussion, there is still a taboo surrounding it. While Freud described libido as a purely sexual and driving energy source, Carl Gustav Jung de-sexualized the concept into a more general life force. In the modern Western world, the concept of libido, especially under the influence of commerce where "sex sells," has been reduced to merely the 'act' of sex. An aphrodisiac is an agent that is thought to immediately increase libido, but it is better to work towards long-term overall mental and physical health. That's why our product line focuses on promoting overall well-being.

Can you increase your libido by yourself?
On the Internet, stories fly around your ears about food and natural remedies that increase your libido. Vitamin D, for example, is nicknamed the "sex vitamin," but oysters, champagne and chocolate are also said to be natural aphrodisiacs. However, can you indeed increase your libido so easily by yourself? Vitamin D is a prohormone and it contributes to strong bones, healthy teeth, good muscle function and a healthy immune system. However, vitamin D indeed also plays a role in the production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Not surprisingly, vitamin D has been linked to increasing libido. Nor is the idea that oysters are an aphrodisiac out of the blue. After all, oysters are particularly rich in the mineral zinc, which is good for sperm quality and contributes to normal fertility. Furthermore, ashwagandha or Indian ginseng also has a beneficial effect on male fertility*, but both champagne and chocolate have never been scientifically proven to increase libido.
What is important for a healthy libido?
Aphrodisiacs do not always seem to do what is said about them, but fortunately, a healthy libido does not depend solely on aphrodisiac foods. You can increase your libido in many ways. Female, male or otherwise, your libido depends on such factors as age, health, climate, temperature, atmosphere, stress, blood flow, diet and lifestyle, among others. Want to boost your libido? If so, it may help to exercise or exercise more, as this increases blood flow and stimulates the production of hormones. Eating healthy is also important, as sugar, white pasta and other carbohydrates cause an increase in insulin: a hormone responsible for processing sugar, as well as a decrease in testosterone levels! Stress also causes an increase in insulin, so avoiding stress and ensuring a good night's sleep will also benefit your health.
Supplements, libido, woman, man & sex
To feel good sexually, sometimes you may want to increase your libido with the help of a supplement. Being a woman and feeling good sexually depends largely on your hormone levels, and these are much more subject to change in women than in men. Moreover, did you know that women also need testosterone to feel like sex? Therefore, using a birth control pill based on estrogen and progesterone can cause a lower libido, as these hormones negatively affect testosterone levels. You can increase or support libido with certain supplements because the nutrients in these supplements contribute to normal hormone levels and normal testosterone levels in the blood, such as zinc and vitamin B6, for example. Supplements can also contribute by boosting your energy metabolism, such as maca* or ginseng*, supporting blood circulation, such as arginine*, ginkgo biloba* and garlic* or by helping to increase balance, rest and relaxation, such as ashwagandha* and rhodiola*.
Examples of high-quality supplements for your energy, balance and libido include OysterMax® - Oyster Extract from Marine Health Foods, Fish eggs - Wild Caught from Ancestral Supplements and Daily Maca Plus for men or for women from MegaFood.
