4 Ayurvedic Herbs that Promise Higher Libido & Better Sexual Life

Sexuality and intimacy are a natural and essential part of an individual’s life. In fact, they're among the 4 goals of life that are prescribed by Ayurveda - Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha. Sometimes, a variety of factors can cause a loss of libido and prevent you from enjoying a fulfilling sexual life. When that happens, there are certain herbs you can use to revitalise yourself.

According to Ayurveda, there are two branches of herbs:

  • Rasayana: Rejuvenative medicines that regenerate the tissues of the body, affecting the ojas and shukra dhatu indirectly

  • Vajikarana: These herbs work directly on the hormones and physical organs to improve the efficacy of ojas and the shukra dhatu.

The following herbs are beneficial for their rasayana and vajikarana properties and help bring your dormant libido back to life.

Ashwagandha:

This is an herb that helps rejuvenate the antioxidant enzymes of the body. It reduces the oxidative damages to the body and help regulate the sex hormones. It increases the flow of blood to the clitoris and other female sex organs, causing an intense sexual experience.

Shatavari:

This herb is considered a woman’s health tonic. It improves egg maturation and ovulation while soothing menopausal symptoms. It is a source of various minerals including zinc, manganese, cobalt, copper, potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Gokshura:

Commonly regarded as an aphrodisiac, Gokhsura has been found to affect hormone levels and increases the levels of Luteinizing hormone. It improves sexual interest and performance in men.

Shilajeet:

A word to the wise: These herbs may show results in the short term, but for long term results, it’s important to make changes to your diet and lifestyle. Eat healthy, exercise regularly, and stay stress free. When the body is healthy and the mind is balanced, you’ll notice that your sexual health will improve naturally.
