Men and women often hold divergent views on many issues but one subject unites them. Good sex is cherished by women as it makes their juices flow and when their male partners are skilled, this can make them achieve orgasm. For the men, a gifted love mate adept at giving oral stimulation and riding them to the heavens is very much desired.

But often things could go south when a partner has a low libido, not-fit-for-purpose genitals, weak erection or a dry honey-pot.


However things shouldn’t be left to deteriorate; certain fruits have been found to help boost libido. Figs, bananas and avocados, for example, are considered libido-boosting foods and can be used as aphrodisiacs. They provide important vitamins and minerals that can increase blood flow to the genitals and promote a healthy sex life.

Eating chocolates, according to studies, promotes the release of phenylethylamine and serotonin into the body which helps lift moods.

Herb, as a source of lifting up spirits, has also been touted. Adding basil or garlic to dishes is highly recommended as their smell stimulates the senses while garlic, rich in allicin, helps increase blood flow.

Yohimbine, an alkaloid from the bark of the evergreen tree found in western and central Africa called the Pausinystalia johimbe, has also been known to work as a natural Viagra, helping maintain an erection, as well as, to enhance the quality of an erection.

Ekpo Ruth, a traditional medicine practitioner in Nigeria, recommends a natural drink with numerous benefits to health and wellbeing, noting that continuous intake will completely eradicate low libido, premature ejaculation and weak or poor erection.

Tiger nuts, dates, coconut and ginger are needed for the beverage.

This drink cannot withstand heat for more than one hour, that’s why it’s recommended to use cold water or ice to blend. One can still use normal water but make sure to refrigerate immediately after preparation to prevent it from going bad.

The drink should not exceed three days, so it’s prudent to make just enough to use for the three days.

– Another excellent recommended remedy that goes alongside the drink is Moringa leaves and whiskey

– Get a handful of moringa leaves, wash and pour inside half bottle of whisky or any gin, allow the leaves to infuse with the whiskey until the colour of the whisky turns to green, sieve and throw away the leaves.
