A guy with a sex problem has his pick of meds — and a constant barrage of commercials reminding him of all the choices.
Ladies, don’t feel too left out on this one. Those drugs come with more bad news than the daily paper — and guys who take them face headaches, vision loss, and more. They even risk getting a painful erection that could require a scalpel to fix.
Well, ladies, you’ve got a much better option that could restore your ability to get busy in the bedroom.
In a “gold-standard” study — double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, the works — an herbal remedy known as ashwagandha was shown to boost sexual function in women in just about every measure.
Over eight weeks, 300 mg of ashwagandha root extract taken twice a day helped otherwise healthy women improve their overall scores on a standard questionnaire known as the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI).
This isn’t just some vague survey. It gets so specific that it’s hard not to blush when answering it. It’s so detailed that we know exactly how — and where — ashwagandha helps improve sexual function in women.
Now, according to the study, it won’t necessarily increase your sexual desire — so you don’t have to worry about transforming into a raving sex maniac at the first sight of a full moon. But once you’re already “in the moment,” it can boost your arousal, increasing lubrication AND your ability to orgasm. With all these improvements, it’s easy to see why the survey found a boost in one other key area: satisfaction.
There have been plenty of studies showing how ashwagandha can help the fellas in the boom boom room, but this is the first time that it’s been scientifically demonstrated to also work on women.
Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in India, and this latest cutting-edge science shows once again that the ancients knew more than all of today’s big drug companies put together. It’s also been used successfully to lift your spirits and help you manage stress and get a good night’s sleep — all of which certainly could make it easier to get “in the mood.”
Along with ashwagandha supplements, make sure your body is getting enough zinc, an essential trace mineral that men and women alike need for proper sexual function.
It’s found highest in oysters, which have been used as aphrodisiacs for centuries.
