The world of supplements is very intimidating and it seems every week there is a new ingredient popping up to help in what ails you. While some people actually like to research every single available ingredient many more would rather try a blend of proven ingredients and just be done with it. There are many cocktails available for all sorts of different ailments but what made libido booster is best?

Sexual activity and ‘maleness’ are often closely linked in our society but that’s not really fair. So many factors effect a man’s libido that are beyond his control. Testosterone is the major hormone behind male (and surprisingly female) desire and that does start to drop off slowly as we age. Other factors including your overall level of health, stress levels, energy levels, other medications you might be taking and all of the things you have to do in a day play a factor too. This is further complicated by the availability of prescription options now available but understandably not everyone wants to go that route.

Supplement blends can be a safe and effective for a large group of men wanting to boost their libidos. Like any other supplement they are generally considered to be safe but there are a few things you should be aware of. Ingredients in any supplement can have adverse reactions and side effects. You might be allergic to an ingredient, it might interact with another medication you are taking so it’s best to check with your doctor before starting any supplement. Of course also be honest with medical professionals about any supplements you are taking for any reason. For that reason we put together this guide to help you decide what to try and see what might work best for you!

Why use Male Libido boosters?

Having a good libido really is self defined. If you’re not happy with the frequency or
intensity of desire it’s up to you decide to do something about it! Here are the main
reasons you might want to try a male libido supplement.

  • They are well studied, more so than libido boosters for women
  • There is evidence to suggest they do in fact work
  • Ingredients within libido boosters target more than just sexual function
  • Stress hormones, low energy levels and mood are also targets of ingredients in these supplements so you might even find improvements outside the bedroom
  • Male supplements are the originals in the libido boosting market. That generally means the ingredients inside are targeted just for you. The ladies aren’t always so lucky in this department.
  • Since they are safe (check with your doctor and or pharmacist to be sure) and use well studied ingredients there really isn’t a reason not to try.

3 Myths About Male Libido Boosters

A lot has been said about male sexual function over the years dating back to ancient times. A lot of that stuff just isn’t true! When considering your options for libido boosters keep these myths in mind.

It’s more than just testosterone

It’s all about testosterone levels. It’s true that testosterone levels peak at about age 30 in men and decline at about 1% a year from there. This can effect your sexual function and levels of desire but it’s a more complicated set of factors for most men than just lower testosterone levels. Factors like stress, mental health, relationship issues and lifestyle factors all play a role in your libido as well. Often the ingredients in libido boosters target more of these factors than just testosterone.

Your ‘normal’ is up to you

There is no standard number or times a week or month you ‘should’ desire sexual activity. Everyone has a different set point and that can vary over time. Having a low libido is really defined by the specific person. If you and your partner are happy with the frequency of sexual activity then that’s fine. But if you feel there is a drop in your desire levels that you are not happy with then it might be time to investigate your options.

Not everyone needs a prescription

These supplements don’t work the same way that little blue pill does. While some ingredients do target blood flow let’s just say it’s not as immediate. Give any libido booster you try at least 30 days to see if it’s working for you.

3 Truths About Male Libido Boosters

There are medical reasons your libido might suffer

It’s worth being checked over by your doctor if your libido levels drop over a fairly short time period. Conditions like diabetes, obesity, kidney and liver disease can all cause a decrease in libido levels. Once serious medical issues have been ruled out you might find help from a commercially available libido supplement.

More is more

A multi pronged approach might be best. In addition to supplementation living a healthier lifestyle by limiting alcohol and drug consumption, getting enough sleep and getting active will also help with your libido over time. Many of the ingredients in supplements might help you in that department as well since they target things like energy and stress levels as well.

Supplements do work

It is possible to find a natural, safe option that works for you and your partner that actually works without resorting to prescription medication. With a multi-pronged approach you could find your stamina, desire level and other parts of your life greatly improved.

Key Ingredients in HIGH-QUALITY Male Libido Boosters:

In general you want to be aware of the ingredients in any supplement you are taking and the ingredients should be listed on the side. Also since you are spending your hard earned cash you want to make sure you are getting an effective dose of each of these ingredients and not just paying for a bunch of fillers and preservatives.
