Bolster Your Sex Life Naturally – Part 2/2

By Yohanan Burket

Natural ways of bolstering sexual desire and performance have become popular, largely because of the failure of pharmaceutical drugs and their usual side-effects. Another factor is the huge cost of taking pharmaceutical drugs.

What is not commonly known is that you don’t need to take a pill to solve any problems. There are already solutions available that are found in common foods. Also, one must be careful to avoid certain foods and avoid sugar as much as possible. The certain foods are processed foods, in general. For men, anything containing soy is bad news because it has an “estrogenizing” effect. Thus, avoiding almost all processed food is a necessity. Instead, buy all your food in the produce and meat departments.

Recent research into the efficacy of various herbs and nutrients has uncovered some interesting facts. One is that L-Arginine, the commonly recommended amino acid for erectile dysfunction, does not work as well for men over 50. It has been discovered that another amino acid, L-Citrulline, is better at producing nitrous oxide in men over 50, enabling them to get an erection more easily. Both of these amino acids are found in watermelon.

Natural Sex Herbs and Amino Acids

The list below shows some common herbs found in the most effective sex enhancement preparations:

There is also the need to produce more nitrous oxide, and one or both of the following amino acids are incorporated in the best sex enhancement formulations:

  • L-Citrulline, a precursor to L-Arginine
  • L-Arginine

In my opinion, the formulations could be made even stronger, as I’ve found that Maca is enhanced with Muira puama root (Ptychopetalum olacoides), just as Tribulus Terrestris is enhanced with the addition of Yohimbe bark (Pausinystalia yohimbe).

Dosage and timing of the dosage is very important. For maximum results, the sex enhancement formula should be taken about one and one-half hours beforehand. If the dosage of EACH ingredient is not adequate, you’re wasting your money. Here are my recommendations:

Formula 1

Formula 2

Formula 3

Formula 4

Maca root:
5 x 300 mg
Yohimbe bark:
Refer to label on bottle.
Fo Ti (Ho Shou Wu):
4 x 610mg

Catuaba bark (Erythroxylum catuaba):
5 x 465mg

Muira Puama:
4 x 500mg
Tribulus Terrestris
3 x 625 mg
Horny Goat weed:
2 x 1000 mg

Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia): 3 x 500 mg

L-Arginine : 2 x 900 mg L-Arginine : 2 x 900 mg L-Arginine : 2 x 900 mg L-Arginine : 2 x 900 mg
L-Citrulline : 1 x 760 mg L-Citrulline : 1 x 760 mg L-Citrulline : 1 x 760 mg L-Citrulline : 1 x 760 mg
Zinc with copper:
30 mg/2 mg
Zinc with copper:
30 mg/2 mg
Zinc with copper:
30 mg/2 mg
Zinc with copper:
30 mg/2 mg

Men, try the suggested formulas to see which one is best for you. Purchase the items shown in the table separately; forget about commercial formulations as most are useless. You can find these items on my Ailments A-E tab under Erectile dysfunction on The direct link is

You can try them in various combinations to see what suits you. The Catuaba bark is quite good and is not only an aphrodisiac, but also a vasodilator. The Muira Puama herb is called potent wood by South Americans. Tongkat Ali powder tastes horrible, so you would want to get it in capsules or tablets only.

Potent Impulse for Men captionOut of the Box Remedies has prepared a formula called Potent Impulse for Men that contains some of the ingredients listed above. Click on the picture to land on the ordering page.

Bodybuilding Supplements

L-Arginine powderLately, the bodybuilding supplements are including the same nutrients used in sex enhancement formulas to boost testosterone and nitrous oxide levels. It seems the two go together, just like sex enhancement and anti-aging formulas. The advantage of taking bodybuilding supplements is that you can purchase large quantities of nutrients at relatively low cost, compared to the over-priced and highly touted sex enhancement supplements. Most of the so-called sex enhancement supplements do not work at all because the amounts of active ingredients added is woefully inadequate. Some sex enhancement formulas have nothing but Fenugreek in them. Although Fenugreek helps somewhat (25% improved libido), it is not comparable to the formulations listed above.

Modern bodybuilding supplements make use of L-Arginine, L-Citrulline, and Tribulus Terrestris. The Tribulus Terrestris herb is noted for increasing testosterone, a must for increasing strength.

Anti-aging Herbs

Ho Shou WuThe premier anti-aging herb of the far east is called Ho Shou Wu (or He Shou Wu) in Chinese. Imported into the U.S., the name morphs into “Fo Ti”. To make sure that you are getting the right herb, check the Latin name: Polygonum Multiflorum.

There is a story in China of a 58-year-old man who was unable to produce children with his wife until he started taking Ho Shou Wu. The herb is also said to return hair color from gray or white to its original color. The shape of the Ho Shou Wu root is very telling – see photo. I can vouch for its aphrodisiac effect. So the same nutrients found in this herb not only enhance sex, but also promote longevity, as can be evidenced by the long-lived Taoists of the Himalayas who take it regularly. It would not surprise me if Ho Shou Wu also contributed to athletic prowess.

Foods that Promote Sexual Prowess

Watermelon is loaded with L-Arginine and L-Citrulline, both nitrous oxide boosters for men who want to be “hard”. Also good for nitrous oxide production are beets. So sprinkle some Fenugreek seeds on your beets for supper, men! Also important is a source of zinc: I prefer shelled pumpkin seeds and blackstrap molasses.

Best Sensual Herbs for Women

Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit

I’ve noticed that Muira Puama puts stress at bay, giving a feeling of well-being. Another good aphrodisiac herb to take is Ashwaghanda, which is a tonic for the adrenal gland. In general, I would recommend taking various aphrodisiac herbs, such as Maca and Catuaba, to see which one works best for you.

I’ve read that spraying magnesium on private parts or taking a magnesium bath is stimulating for women.  See writings by Doctor Marc Sircus on magnesium.

    The 30mg of Zinc that you suggest is elemental Zinc? I presume, the ratio between zinc and copper is more important than the quantity…
