Most people are beginning to turn to herbs in order to cure certain ailments, improve well-being and increase sex drive. Can herbs really improve male libido? Oh yes! Herbs have been in use since time immemorial and many people would rather choose herbal remedies over orthodox medicines anytime.

Another question is "can herbs help increase a man’s libido to the same intensity he had when he was younger?" the answer might shock you but the truth is, herbs could help a man get back the same sex drive he had while he was younger.

Perhaps you are a man who still has a few wild oats to sow but your libido has suddenly reduced; there are different herbs that can be used to improve your libido. Herbs for male libido include:

  1. Yohimbe Bark

This herb is good for effectively increasing the male libido, because it helps the increase blood flow to the penis by stimulating the body’s nervous system. The downside of this herb is; it cannot be used without a doctor’s prescription and supervision. The reason is because it is known to cause high blood pressure in most of its users; it also increases the heart rate, nausea etc.

  1. Maca

This herb is an "organic tuber," it is quite an unusual plant because it grows in Peru in the high Andean plateaus (this plant grows at altitudes that is as high as 14,500 feet above see level) , it is also related to the potato family. This herb is can be used to increase male testosterone levels (especially in older men) and it also increases the natural production of quality semen and sperm.

  1. Damiana

This herb can be found in tropical America, and it is a very famous aphrodisiac and it has been used for centuries to increase libido. Damiana is perhaps the safest herb to consume; it increases the male sex drive remarkably.

  1. Ginseng

Ginseng is the most popular and "hip" herb used for improving male libido; it has the most powerful reputation for waking up the reproductive system. Ginseng contains a property known as "phytochemicals" which is known to reduce fatigue and increase stamina during sexual intercourse.

  1. Muira-Puama

Herbalists discovered that this herb can be used to tone the central nervous system of the body. Also known as "potency wood", this Brazilian tree is famous for its aphrodisiac properties.

  1. Kava Kava

This herb can also be used to treat nervousness and depression because it contains compounds known as "pyrones" which possess sedative and tranquilizing effects on its users. Depression is one of the major causes of libido loss in men, and as soon as you feel happy, your sex drive will come back in full swing.

Other herbs for male libido are:

  1. Horny goat weed

  2. Ashwagandha

  3. Saw palmetto

  4. Rhodiola

  5. Tongkat ali

  6. Mucuna pruriens

  7. Tribulus terrestris

  8. Chaste berry

  9. Ginkgo bilboa

  10. Acai fruit

  11. Chives

  12. Hops

Most of these herbs can be found in herbal supplement pills, tonics and teas, so the choice is yours.

There are many who will tell you that all impotence sufferers need to do is take part in a daily workout and their sexual health problems will disappear as if by magic. Sure the loss of weight that should result will help, assuming you have weight to lose. As will the extra energy experienced after establishing a regular exercise routine and of course you need to be able to find the time in your schedule to take part in regular exercise to gain any benefits. But exercise does not reverse the ageing process nor will it re open the tiny blood vessels that surround the erogenous zones which become clogged and often close-up with age. Without good blood flow into the groin area both men and women will find enjoying full sexual relations problematic. As we get older no matter how hard we try our body starts to falter. Until recently the only successful treatment for impotency or erectile dysfunction as it is medically referred to, has been the little blue pill available on prescription from your doctor. Not anymore, recent clinical trials have revealed a little known herb- Butea Superba has exactly the same effect of the body as the blue pill. Butea however is completely natural. In fact the success rate with Butea was actually higher than with prescription drugs. While clinical trials on prescription blue pill show sexual arousal improvement in around 50% of those tested. Butea Superba improved the sexual function of over 80% of all patients taking part in the clinical trials. The big secret behind these pills is an enzyme we all create naturally in our bodies called PDE5. Butea Superba inhibits the bodies production of PDE’s and in doing so increases the blood flow into the sex organs. As blood flows more freely into the erogenous zones you are more able to achieve full arousal. The additional upside for many of those tested on Butea Superba is that when PDE5 is not being produced arousal lasts longer, many patients reported achieving sufficient arousal levels to enjoy full sex two and three times. Available online under the brand name HealthyED Butea Superba is taken as a supplement each morning, unlike the little blue pill which has to be taken a specific time before any sexual encounter. There was unanimous agreement amongst those tested that taking Butea as a supplement rather than ‘on demand’, not only gave added confidence it also relieved performance induced stress. I hope this is helpful to anyone who may be suffering from any form of sexual performance anxiety.
