L-arginine an amino acid found in many foods, such as dairy, meat, poultry, and fish, arginine is involved in the secretion of hormones, and the production of nitrous oxide, a substance the dilates blood vessels. Research supports its use for sexual dysfunction in women.
Ginkgo biloba enhances blood flow to the genitals and may be especially beneficial to women taking antidepressants.
Avena sativa (wild oat) can be used to treat conditions including headaches, depression, tension, insomnia, anxiety, and feelings of sadness. Wild oat is also a remedy for nerve pain and chronic fatigue.
Panax ginseng one of the herbs for female sex drive, is comprised of over 30 different, active glycosides that are thought to be responsible for its potential pro-sexual effects in men and women. In pre, peri, and post- menopausal women, Panax ginseng has been demonstrated, in combination, to improve sexual desire, satisfaction, and vaginal dryness.
Eurycoma longifolia Jack contains active components that have been reported to have aphrodisiac properties.
Tribulus terrestris is regarded as an aphrodisiac due to it’s ability to increase some sex hormones.
Choline plays a role in libido as genital sexual arousal depends on the integrity of the autonomic nerves, genital vascular beds, and the endocrine milieu.
Pantothenic Acid is essential to all life and to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, as well as for the synthesis of hormones[including sex and adrenal] and cholesterol.
