Good sex is crucial to a healthy relationship, but after a while, you might begin to realize that your body is not performing as well as it used to. Perhaps it could be ‘bad timing’, or perhaps your mind’s just not into it. Or maybe, your libido is decreased slightly. But don’t be alarmed! You can always improve your libido naturally with these suggestions.

 

Start Exercising Regularly
Exercising helps improve the blood flow in the body, and more importantly, your sexual organs. Furthermore, exercise is the body’s natural way to release the feel-good chemical in your body, endorphins, that will help release tension in your mind and body. This will also give an added boost to your self-esteem, which also improves your libido.

 

Watch Your Diet
You might wonder why your diet has anything to do with you sex drive, but the truth is – when your body lacks the right nutrients it needs to be healthy, your health starts to deteriorate, and so does your libido. Stay loyal to your intake of fruits and veggies, and don’t forget to look into vitamins and antioxidants that main good blood flow to the sex organs.

 

Try Aphrodisiacs
Magic potions do not exist, but natural aphrodisiacs do and they’re easily found in the supermarket. If you’re at the seafood counter of the market, look for oysters. They are known to promote love-inducing chemicals that contain antioxidants and trace elements necessary for sex. Pure chocolates are also natural aphrodisiacs that releases dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain and peaks during an orgasm. Better start stocking up on dark 90% chocolates now!

 

 Set The Mood
There’s no harm in indulging in some erotica as it creates arousing chemical changes in your brain that can increase desire. Dr Susan Kellogg-Spadt, Ph.D., codirector of the Pelvic and Sexual Health Institute in Philadephia reports that couples who discuss their sexual preferences report twice as many satisfying sexual encounters as opposed to those who are ‘all action’.
