Sexuality changes as women get older, but no need to let libido fade with it. Chronic health problems, prescription drugs and changes in hormones affect sexuality. Diet, stress, lack of sleep, depression and menopause can lower sex drive.
Whether or not the low libido is caused by medical problems, you may be able to increase the sexual desire with vitamins and food supplements. This is a proven method that works and women over 50 use every day. For men, there are equally proven and natural ways to treat erectile dysfunction.
Let’s start from vitamin A to vitamin E.
Women need vitamin A for reproduction and to keep healthy ovaries. If you do not get enough vitamin A, the production of sex hormones declines drastically. Eat vitamin A-rich foods such as fish, eggs, cheese, yogurt and green leafy vegetables like lettuces.
Vitamin B increases blood flow to the genitals. Vitamin B-3, or niacin, increases the blood flow to the extremities. When you don’t get enough vitamin B-3, problems with the digestive and nervous systems cause problems in your sex life. Get niacin from broccoli, yogurt, fish, chicken and lean meat. Vitamin B-1 increases energy and sex drive. Get vitamin B-1 from nuts, brown rice, whole grains, beans, pineapple and asparagus.
Vitamin C metabolizes in the adrenal glands, that produce sex hormones. It keeps the joints active, and the immune system strong. Vitamin C helps the blood to absorb iron, which helps the tissue form energy and transports oxygen in the blood to the organs, glands and tissues. Vitamin C found in oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, and tomatoes.
Vitamin D boosts the immune system and regulates your hormones. It strengthens the bones, keeping blood levels of calcium normal, and regulates the thyroid gland, which helps to balance sex hormones. The best source of vitamin D is sunlight (from 8 to 9 am), but you can also get it from the milk, egg yolks, liver, margarine, cod liver oil, mackerel, sardines, salmon, tuna, dark green vegetables, and some breads and cereals.
Vitamin E increases strength and endurance. It promotes fertility, protects cells and stops hot flashes. By poking a hole in a vitamin E capsule and use the content, you can rehydrate vaginal tissue and increase your sexual feelings. Foods with vitamin E include seeds, nuts, oils, spinach, whole grains, asparagus, carrots, apples, beef, seafood, celery and avocado.
