Everyone wishes to have a fulfilling sexual life. If this is the case, your desire for sexual activities should be on the ordinary side. Libido levels and sex urges varies between men and women. A low libido is not usually an issue, until it begins to influence your relationship and lifestyle.
However, if nothing is done, it can lead to tension, sexual dissatisfaction, disagreements, and a “Gbas Gbos” war, as we call it in Nigeria.
Furthermore, various factors such as stress, lifestyle, medicine, and hormone levels (testosterone and estrogen) during pregnancy/breastfeeding can all have an impact on one’s libido. It might also deteriorate with age.
How do I know if I have low libido?
It is simpler to recognize when your libido begins to diminish if you have previously been sexually active.
Because you will begin to have little to no sexual thinking or desire in sexual activities. You barely ever initiate sex or take pleasure in it. Perhaps you have a low libido that you’d want to increase; I’ll teach you one of the simplest and safest methods to do it.
However, we shall be focusing on aphrodisiacs. Aphrodisiacs are foods or substances, such as herbal treatments, that when consumed, boost sexual desire.
1. Nuts Combo
The nuts combo has been a relationship changer for countless Nigerians with low libido. It is natural, has no negative effects, and takes effect quickly. If you do not want to experience an increase in your sexual desire sooner rather than later, avoid this “manpower” drink.
Purchase 12 cup of dates, 1 cup of tiger nuts, and a small coconut from the vendors (aboki). Dates are very sweet. As a result, you’ll require the least quantity possible.
You may also add almond or walnut if you can get them. These nuts are incredible for increasing libido. If you purchased fresh tiger nuts and dates, you may begin processing them immediately. However,
- if they are dry, you must first wash them and then soak them in water overnight.
- Remove the coconut flesh by draining the nuts and breaking the coconut.
- Blend everything except the water, a little at a time, to make blending/grinding simpler.
- If you do not have a decent blender, you can grind it at the mill.
- Sieve the nut chaff to remove all but the milk.
- You may keep it in the fridge for approximately 24 days and consume a glass full of it when the time comes.
Some folks may dislike the milky juice because it is overly sweet. As a result, if you like spicy foods, you can add ginger or other spicy herbs.
Some have testified to its usefulness, while others have stated that they saw no or little difference. If you must take it, avoid taking any other medications. It may lessen its efficacy.
It also provides the following linked benefits:
- Improve nursing moms’ milk supply
- Improve sperm quality
- Treats male erection problems and premature ejaculation
2. Herbal treatments
Traditional medicine is growing more popular in Nigeria and other regions of Africa, even when it comes to increasing sexual desire.
Many people enjoy it since it is largely made up of herbs and other plants that are helpful to health in a variety of ways.
Some herbal medicines, for example, can heal illness, hormone imbalance, and improve libido all at the same time. As a result, it’s a good technique to kill two birds with one stone.
- Carpolobia (Cattle Stick).
Carpolobia comes in a variety of forms. Carpolobia alba, Carpolobia conradsiana, Carpolobia lutea, and other species are found across Africa.
The plant is popular in Nigeria and many other countries of Africa, including Gabon, South Africa, and Cameroon, for its capacity to increase libido.
The Igbo name it Agba, the Yoruba Egbo Oshunshun, the Ibibio Ikpafum, and Abekpok Ibuhu in Eket.
The herb can help with male infertility and enhance sexual performance. cattle stick can be consumed as a root decoction, herbal extracts, fermented, or mixed into locally produced alcohol.
It increases libido and treats a variety of health issues such as arthritis, aches, internal heat, and infections. It has anti-analgesic, anti-malarial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties, among many others.
In fact, utilizing the plant’s stem as a chewing stick will increase your sex desire. That is why it is so popular in herbal therapy and is so widely used.
- Clerodendrum capitatum (Glory bower).
Clerodendrum capitatum is another fascinating plant/herb that I will discuss in this essay. The potent plant can treat impotence, premature ejaculation, and boost libido.
It is popular among the Yoruba tribe, who name it feremomiin. Because of its capacity to increase sexual power, this is one of the most sought-after herbs.
One study on rabbits demonstrated the plant’s effectiveness for the aforementioned advantages. Furthermore, it is historically used to cure rheumatism, toothache, inflammation, diabetes mellitus, leprosy, hypertension, and many other disorders.
- Garcinia kola (bitter kola)
Chewing bitter kola is nothing new in Nigeria. Most guys, however, consume it just to increase their sexual urge and performance.
To utilize it for this course, chew it for at least 5 minutes before having sex. Its extract can also perform wonders when combined with other herbs/plants such as kola nut and uziza seeds.
3. Live a healthy lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle will not immediately increase your sexual desire, but it will assist to improve your overall performance. That is why, whatever you do, strive to live as healthily as possible. It is beneficial.
- Eat healthily: Add Aphrodisiacs to your meals, such as walnuts, avocados, dark chocolate, and so on, to get the essential nutrients they provide.
- Sleep enough: Stress and sleeplessness can deplete libido and negatively impact your sexual life. As a result, get as much sleep as you can.
- Exercise on a regular basis: Staying fit has several advantages. It aids in the maintenance of a healthy weight, has a favorable effect on hormones, and enhances circulation for increased arousal.
4. Take part in foreplay
According to statistics from a recent survey of 100 persons (50 men and 50 women), around 75% of males do not engage in foreplay.
What’s the hurry? This is a significant turn-on for most women. As a result, if your spouse complains about a lack of sex desire, you may be contributing to it.
Foreplay prepares your mind and body for sex. It is an excellent environment for increasing libido. According to a sex therapist I know, most guys are frightened about losing erections. So they aim to create things as soon as possible while yet maintaining quality.
Well, if you follow the advice above, I don’t think you have to worry about that. After all, they will naturally increase your libido with no side effects.
Although both men and women suffer from decreased libido, males are more aware of it. That is because their ego is centered there.
Fortunately, there are better and safer alternatives. You should not rely on Viagra or any other aphrodisiac because it is detrimental in the long run. Without it, your body may struggle to operate sexually.
You may also notice a drop in blood pressure when the blood vessels dilate. This might lead to a stroke, heart attack, or death.
When combined with some drugs, such as those containing nitrate, the consequences can be more catastrophic. So be cautious and be safe.
