Overview

Though there are many drug manufacturing companies that claim taking certain pills can help enhance your libido, the best libido enhancers are completely natural. Eating certain foods and spices and taking a yoga class are the best libido enhancers. Read on to discover how these natural aphrodisiacs (sexual stimulants) can help boost your libido.

Foods

According to TheFoodPaper.com and Forbes Magazine, there are certain foods known to enhance your libido. Avocados enhances male libido by increasing male hormone production while the potassium found in this food helps regulate female thyroid glands, which helps enhance the female libido. Bananas are a common aphrodisiac due to their phallic shape as well as the fact that bananas are rich with testosterone-producing vitamins. Asparagus also helps increase testosterone levels (which increases both male and female libido levels). TheFoodPaper.com reports that basil stimulates your sex drive and enhances female fertility. Forbes magazine reports that soy products can help women’s vaginal area remain lubricated, which enhances the sexual experience for men and women alike. Soy also helps the male prostate: a critical male sexual organ.

Spices

Adding spices like cumin, curry and cayenne pepper to your meals can provide your blood flow an instant boost that improves your libido. Chili peppers specifically improve your circulation. Cayenne pepper is a warming spice that increases your blood flow. You can add it to any dish as long as you do not suffer from indigestion. Curry is another spice that heats up your whole body, which can make your sexual organs more sensitive. Cumin is a warm spice that has traditionally been associated with enhancing your libido.

Yoga

Through different asanas (steady poses) and pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga can help you change the quality of your sex life. Yoga helps improve your sensitivity, which enhances your sensuality in and outside of the bedroom. Yogic breathing exercises help you overcome any anxiety you may have towards sex so that you can relax and enjoy the experience more fully. Being relaxed also helps you tune in to your partner’s sexual needs. In addition to relaxing you, yoga also helps you achieve better orgasms through strengthening your pelvic floor muscles and sexual organs. Yoga also helps you experiment with more sexual positions through the flexibility you gain from the practice. There are specific poses you can practice to enhance your libido, including the lotus position, plough pose, shoulder stand and headstand.
