What is Libido? Can you have more of it?

Libido is loosely defined as sex drive.  Originally (from the latin) it was defined as 'desire' or 'lust'.

With the advent of drugs like Viagra, the term has come to represent the sexual performance of the male.  Alas, there is no 'Viagra' for women.

In reality the sex drive is determined by a number of factors.  Despite the fact that psychological and social factors play a large part, the bottom line is that we are discussing the physical activity of both the man and the woman.

You should be aware that your sex drive is also affected by your age (testosterone and all hormone levels decline with age), your medical condition and (perhaps more importantly) by medications you may be taking.  We always urge you to read the information from the pharmacist listing the side effects of all your drugs. 

One of the more important ways to improve your libido is by the use of Essential Fatty acids (prostaglandin precursors).  Prostaglandin was first isolated from seminal fluid (from the prostate gland) in 1935 by a Swedish physiologist (bet you didn't know that).

Since that time the investigation into these active hormone-like lipid compounds has been very intense.  One effect of prostaglandins is the regulation of contraction and relaxation of smooth muscle tissue.  For this reason fish oil has been widely promoted for heart health.  We encourage the use of Ultra Omega-Linic because it includes the omega 6 as well as the omega 3
preformed long chain essential Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids.    The 'side effects' of taking Ultra Omega-Linic include a healthy heart, a healthy brain, less trouble with arthritis, shiny hair, glowing skin, and a healthy 'libido'.

A number of herbs are said to provide a 'natural' alternative to viagra.  One discussion I read said that a particular herb was a good alternative - provided you spent lots of money to buy the very pure form, and you took lots of it.  Another discussion stated that no herbs do what Viagra does.  But what if you don't want to take the drug?

We have 2 herbal products that merit your consideration.  PhytoAmore capsules and PhytoAmore Oil.  The oil is suitable for full body massage, yet gentle enough for sensitive areas.  What could be more exciting than that?  The capsules should be taken daily, as well as 2 hours before intimacy.

And feedback from those who have used it (men & women) has been - well - very satisfactory. 

These approaches are a lot more fun with better 'side effects' for men and women.
