Low libido and sex drive are among the most concerning health issues. Improper dietary habits, excess work pressure and stress coming from deadlines, exhaustion, and sedentary lifestyles due to desk jobs worsen the problem day by day. Due to these issues, people have less time for themselves and their partners.

This does not only affect their relationships, but it also has a severe impact on their overall health and well-being. With Ayurveda, one can increase his/her libido and sex drive naturally and improve his/her overall sexual health and quality of life. Read ahead to discover the tips and tricks to do so effectively:

What Causes Low Libido?

As per Ayurvedic medicine, having a low libido and sex drive is a consequence of an imbalanced Vata Dosha. An aggravated Vata can hamper the function of the brain, muscles, blood vessels, hormones, and sexual organs. This harms one’s sexual health and function

People often resort to conventional prescription medications to help alleviate this condition. But those drugs end up worsening their sexual function and performance further by causing adverse side effects such as-

  • Severe headaches,
  • Flushing,
  • Indigestion,
  • Back pain,
  • Blurred vision,
  • Partial or complete hearing or vision loss (in severe cases).

Besides them, chronic health conditions like diabetes and chronic pain can seriously damage one’s sex drive. High blood pressure can significantly lower the levels of sex hormones in the body. 

Effective Ways to Boost Libido and Sex Drive Naturally

Ayurvedic medicine work as natural remedies to boost libido and improve overall sexual health. Some natural ways include-

Consuming almonds (raw or mixed with milk) can be immensely effective for helping with impotence and improving sex drive. Eating 8-10 unroasted almonds for breakfast can be immensely beneficial. They can even be soaked overnight to be eaten (with the skin peeled off) the next morning. However, their number and consumption depend on one’s age and dietary regime. 

Dates are highly-strengthening food that can increase one’s endurance, improve vitality, and restore libido. Eating a date daily can induce calmness, alleviate fatigue, and improve the body’s energy levels. Furthermore, a soup made of boiled drumstick flowers can alleviate functional sterility in both males and females.

Avocados, also known as butter fruit or butternuts, are a rich source of good fats (poly and monounsaturated fats). They are essential for improving cardiac health and blood flow to vital organs. This helps increase sex drive among both males and females. A similar effect is achieved by consuming watermelons. They are rich in phytonutrient citrulline, the substance that helps relax blood vessels and improve blood circulation.

Saffron is another important Ayurvedic spice for enhancing one’s libido. Besides being revered for its flavor and spice, this spice is also known as a libido-enhancer. This is because it is rich in antioxidants that help improve sex drive and prevent sexual health issues like ED among males.

In addition to these, one must eat home-cooked, nutritious, balanced, and well-spaced meals at regular intervals. Avoid harmful foods like oily, greasy, fried, fatty, sugary, salty, junk, processed, and preserved items, and replace them with a balanced and healthy meal. Including ghee (clarified butter) and milk/buttermilk in the diet can also go a long way in enhancing libido and overall sexual health.

Vital Ayurvedic Herbs for Improving Libido

One of the eight specialties of Ayurvedic medicine is Vajikaran therapy. This therapy revitalizes all the elements of the body, restores bodily balance, and ensures a healthy progeny. 

It consists of certain foods, spices, and important herbs that help boost libido; enhance sexual performance, function, and experience; and increase sexual strength, energy, stamina, and endurance. Some of the vital herbs for boosting sex drive include:

  • Ashwagandha- consuming its powdered roots helps boost longevity, reduce stress and fatigue, and alleviate conditions like erectile dysfunction (ED).
  • Shatavari- helps boost blood circulation in the vital organs, reduce stress, calm the mind, and alleviate sexual problems like ED.
  • Safed Musli- being rich in antioxidants, its regular consumption induces sex drive and reduces stress.
  • Kapikachhu- it helps intensify the overall sexual experience and endurance, enhances testosterone levels, reduces stress and anxiety, and maintains a healthy nervous system.
  • Gokshura- just a spoonful of this herb can significantly improve the production of testosterone among males and reduce the risk of issues like ED and delayed/premature ejaculation.
  • Kaunch beej- it acts as a natural aphrodisiac, improves sex drive and energy, stimulates blood flow to the vital organs, and reduces physiological stress.
  • Tulsi (basil) – it contains arginine compounds (amino acids) that are essential components of proteins. Hence, the daily consumption of basil can help enhance libido in males and prevent infertility. 

All these herbs can help a person reach their sexual peak in a natural, safe, and holistic manner.

Ayurvedic Formulation for Boosting Libido

Ayurvedic medicines like the Kameshwar modaka are immensely effective for enhancing libido, endurance, stamina, sexual performance, and overall sexual function and health. This formulation consists of effective herbal ingredients including Amalaki, bibhitaka, haritaki, jeeraka, ghrita (clarified butter/ghee), Madhu (honey), and most importantly, bhanga/Vijaya.

All of these ingredients directly influence the brain’s regions responsible for sexual function and help enhance one’s sexual desire, strength, energy, vitality, and vigor. Kameshwar modaka further strengthens the muscles and raises the body’s core energy levels to reduce the risk of sexual health issues arising in the future and alleviate the existing conditions like delayed/premature ejaculation and ED.

Besides consuming the above-mentioned foods, herbs, and Ayurvedic medicines, it is also important to include regular exercise in one’s daily routine. Physical and mental fitness is essential to keep a person stress free and enhance libido levels since stress is one of the most prominent reasons behind low libido. Regular workouts, yoga, and meditation can also reduce the risk of sexual health issues.

While it is crucial to implement the right dietary and lifestyle habits, it is also important to get the right Ayurvedic consultation for oneself. Because diet regimes, lifestyles, and herbal/medicinal prescriptions vary individually.
