Review of aphrodisiac drugs and substances, list of ingredients and foods with aphrodisiac properties, for female and male adults

Are there male and female natural aphrodisiac herbal products that really work? There is a general suspicion in the modern Western mindset that plants, roots, herbs and other substances purported to enhance sexual passion or interest are barely -- if at all -- effective. Fortunately, research in this area is beginning to confirm some of the observations made by many shamans and herbal experts who, for centuries and millennia, have used roots, barks, leaves, herbs, various plants and animal parts of all sorts to enhance sexual experience and performance. Some of the observations of these shamans is now being confirmed by double blind, placebo-controlled studies. For instance, the herb maca is able to reverse SSRI induced sexual dysfunction. SSRI drugs such as Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil reduce sexual pleasure since they increase serotonin levels dampening erectile function and sensation.

Natural herbal aphrodisiacs review
There are quite a number of herbs and plant extracts that are excellent sexual enhancers and it is difficult to say which one is the best since different people respond to different ones. As medical science has given us a greater understanding of human sexuality and our own chemical processes that put us in the mood, research has uncovered how some well-known and not so well-known male and female aphrodisiacs actually work with our body chemistry to lead to arousal and excitement. Various substances of animal and plant origin have now been identified, allowing for testing and scientific understanding of their chemical composition and mechanisms of action. Many scientists casually dismiss the possibility that herbal aphrodisiacs are possible. How little do they know!

Powerful Natural Aphrodisiac for Men and Women, formulated by a medical doctor

These natural sex enhancers provide results that are most often felt by the third or fourth day of use. More than 80% of users are satisfied by the end the first week, with additional satisfaction by the end of the second week. Most people take a capsule in the morning at least a half hour before breakfast. Another capsule is taken the second day also in the morning. We suggest you skip the third day and resume the fourth day. From then on you can take this product as much as 2 days on, one day off, or as little as one or two days a week depending on your needs and response. Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D., best selling author of Natural Sex Boosters, is the medical doctor who formulated these products. His research staff tested various doses and extracts of dozens of powerful herbal male and female aphrodisiacs from a number or raw material suppliers to determine the ideal dose and combination for optimal aphrodisiac properties with the fewest side effects.

What is the best herbal sex aphrodisiac pill?
   Different people respond differently to such natural products, so it is difficult to pick the best herbal aphrodisiac. Formulas that combine several herbs are probably the best option, if the combination formula was done in an experienced manner.

Speed of onset, how quickly do they work?
Most Westerners would be surprised to find out that there are dozens of natural herbal and natural aphrodisiacs that enhance sexual drive and pleasure in both men and women, along with enhancing erections and providing more satisfying orgasms and climaxes. Some of these herbs are quite powerful. We know because we am familiar with several dozen of them. They not only enhance libido, but they enhance most aspects of the human sexual response, particularly if they are used in combination. These plant extracts, when used in combination, are just as good (actually, in our opinion, better) as Viagra or other drugs in helping with erectile function and boosting sexual stamina, libido, and performance. They may take a little longer to work-- for instance tongkat ali, horny goat weed, tribulus, maca, and mucuna pruriens sometimes take several days for the best results --  but when they actually start working, you are likely to be impressed.

Is there such a thing as an aphrodisiac food or recipe? Is there a reliable list? What about drinks?
No particular food enhances sexuality or can be considered a true aphrodisiac if the expectation is that results would be noticed right away, such as an hour or two. It is possible, though, that certain foods, such as fish or seafood, could be considered to have aphrodisiac qualities in the long run since fish provides long-chained fatty acids such as DHA and EPA found in fish oils. These fish oils could improve blood flow to the genital region and also have beneficial effects on seminal fluid and sperm. A diet with healthy foods could certainly be considered to have potential since in the long run those who are physically and mentally healthy are more likely to have optimal sexual function. They are likely to have excellent blood flow to the genital organs, and optimal hormone balance. Many herbs can be brewed as a tea and as such these could be considered aphrodisiac tea products. A homemade aphrodisiac drink can be made by adding certain powerful herbs to any kind of alcoholic or non alcoholic drink or liquid.

Are there any nuts or seeds that are considered aphrodisiacs? What about a fruit?
   There may be. We are not aware of any nuts or seeds, when ingested, lead to a sexual enhancing effect within an hour or two. But, we will keep searching for such a seed or nut. We have not come across an aphrodisiac fruit that leads to a quick sexual enhancement.

What about spices in the kitchen?
There appears to be some research supporting certain spices as male and female aphrodisiacs. One study in rodents found nutmeg and clove to have sexual improving benefits. Saffron and nutmeg should also be considered. Some even think garlic and ginger could be helpful for erectile dysfunction or as a treatment for impotence.

The effect of saffron, Crocus sativus stigma, extract and its constituents, safranal and crocin on sexual behaviors in normal male rats.
Phytomedicine. 2007.

Comparing prescription impotence and aphrodisiac drugs
There are quite a number of natural aphrodisiac herbs that are quite effective in improving sexuality in both men and women. Even though many cultures for centuries have known about local plants, roots, barks, herbs that stimulate sexual passion, most doctors in the US have little clue on how potent some of these herbs or combinations can be. Natural aphrodisiac herbs work slower than drugs and that may be one reason. As Americans we like pills that give an immediate effect. We want to take an impotence drug like Viagra and get a quick response in an hour or two. Most take 2 or 3 days to begin to work and their effects improve over time, but there are some herbs or combinations that work quicker. Although Viagra and its cousins Cialis and Levitra work very well for erectile function, they have little effect on sensation or libido and they hardly work in women. Natural aphrodisiac herbs generally are not as potent and quick in terms of stimulating an erection, but with time they can be as good as the drugs. Most people prefer the overall sexual enhancement that comes from the herbs in terms of the whole package -- sensation, libido, intensity of orgasms, climaxes, lubrication, and erection. Herbs also have the advantage of causing fewer side effects.

The drug sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer) and, more recently, tadalafil (Cialis, Lilly-Icos) and vardenafil (Levitra, Bayer), have adverse effects with include hypotension, tachycardia, headache, flushing, blurred vision, dyspepsia, and musculoskeletal pain.

Do you consider Cialis and Viagra aphrodisiac drugs?
   Levitra, Cialis and Viagra are partial aphrodisiac drugs. They are very effective in providing strong erections, but they have little effect on sexual desire or libido, and they don't enhance genital sensation.

Aphrodisiac for woman, Are they effective in women, ladies?
Most herbal aphrodisiacs work for a woman as well as a man, including muira puama, tongkat ali, tribulus terrestris extract, maca, and horny goat weed. Mucuna pruriens and LJ100 are other herbal aphrodisiacs for a woman.
In our experience, we have found these natural herbs to be effective in both men and women.

Yes, we do believe horny goat weed, muira puama, tongkat ali, tribulus terrestris, and many other herbs are good and proven male and female aphrodisiac plants. Nature has provided us with many aphrodisiac herbs and plants, and there are countless sexual enhancing plants in nature that have not yet been discovered. Maca is a good aphrodisiac, but there are more potent ones such as yohimbe and tongkat ali that work in men and women. Turnera diffusa is weak compared to the others.

Potent aphrodisiacs
There are several natural aphrodisiacs that are potent, including tribulus terrrestris, tongkat ali, catuaba, muira puama, horny goat weed, mucuna pruriens, and others. Each person has their own preference and while one natural aphrodisiac may work for one person, another individual may notice side effects and not find the herb helpful. Sometimes a combination of herbs can be more potent or effective than single herbs alone.

Do you know of any Asian or Chinese aphrodisiac herbs or plants?
   The Chinese have many aphrodisiac herbs including cnidium, horny goat weed, codonopsis, cistanches, etc. In Asia, particularly in India, Ayurvedic doctors use ashwagandha and mucuna pruriens for better sex.

Essential oil
A friend of mine claims she has an aphrodisiac essential oil that she can rub on the body. She also sells  aphrodisiac aromatherapy products. Do they work?
   Perhaps there is such an aphrodisiac essential oil, we are not familiar with any. As to aphrodisiac aromatherapy products, again we are not familiar with them but it is possible that some people who are very sensitive to fragrances may find a slight benefit. A person who has a sensitive sense of smell could respond to a particular scent or perfume ad be aroused by the person who is wearing a fragrance that appeals to them.
