3 natural libido boosters for men and women

Looking to enhance your sex life naturally? There are few natural herbs and vitamin that have been shown to help, and they might surprise you.

1. Maca (Lepidium meyenii) has been used in its native Peru to enhance vitality for centuries, and modern research found that 3.5 grams daily (a few capsules, or about a teaspoon) improved mood and sexual satisfaction in women. It has been shown to work for men too.

2. Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is better known for its libido and performance enhancing effects in men, but ginseng extract has been shown to improved sexual arousal in women as well.

3. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has been shown to improve mood and sexual activity in both men and women. The dose was a relatively high but very safe dose of 3000 mg daily, an orange contains about 80 mg so try a vitamin C supplement, unless you really LOVE oranges.
