- It happens to just about everyone: your sex life ebbs and flows. Don’t be shy about telling your doctor what’s going on, but these dietary changes may help increase libido.
For women, low blood iron levels might dim your libido. But, taking too much at once (more than 20 mg) is hard to stomach. Try to spread it out during the day.
Men who have low libido often have other health conditions like high blood pressure or depression. However, some specific nutrients may help. The amino acid, L-arginine helps your body make nitric oxide, which has been shown to improve erections. Niacin is a B vitamin that raises your "good" cholesterol level and helps correct erectile dysfunction. Before trying the “little blue pill”, it may be better to try some of these dietary recommendations.
If you are low on sexual energy, talk to your doctor about your concerns. Your problems may simply stem from the lack of sleep (http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/prevention-15/vitamins/sex-drive-supplements ). The Nutrient Shake promotes weight loss and contains iron, L-arginine, and niacin; all good for someone who wants to increase libido.
