Fenugreek! Did you know its an Aphrodisiac?

January 14, 2020

Scientific studies show Fenugreek enhances sexual desire and sexual function in both men and women!

I continue the dialogue today on aphrodisiac foods and in particular drilling down on one called Fenugreek. Fenugreek is a plant native to Asia and the Mediterranean regions and used in Asian and middle Eastern regions as a foodstuff for years – for centuries as a taste enhancer in salads and other dishes due to its flavorful effect, and also for the well-kept secrets of its libido and sexual desire enhancing properties.

One of the features of Fenugreek that’s important is this: not only is it is alleged to have aphrodisiac benefits, but has been shown in scientific studies to improve testosterone levels in men and improving sexual desire and libido, as well as enhancing estrogen and testosterone levels in women to improve sexual function and sexual desire.

But before you go out and buy a bucket of this stuff, make certain that you talk with your healthcare professional  – is right for you, is it safe for you and is what you need to get a little jump start on your on your sexual attitude.

Where do you get it? Well, it is actually an ingredient in many supplements that are sold for sexual enhancement and you can get it at health food stores in bulk, and you can buy it online, probably even get it on Amazon!
