Q. Is Viagra a good aphrodisiac drug?
A. Viagra improves erectile engorgement and erection but I would consider it to be a partial aphrodisiac drug since it does not have much of an effect on sensation of genital organs and libido.
Q. I am wondering if most aphrodisiac herbs such
as horny goat weed, damiana, tribulus, aframomum, and others such as in Passion
RX, affect hormones. are any of them safe for women on birth control? i am
certain many women are concern about this and need to know more, before being
comfortable using these supplements.
A. As long as the dosages of the aphrodisiac herbs are kept low, they should be fine with birth control pills but ask your doctor to make sure you have no major medical issues that would prevent you from using aphrodisiac herbs.
Q. Are there any supplements that dampen sexuality
and dampen the effects of aphrodisiac herbs?
A. Yes, 5-HTP
Hello, recently I happened to visit some web
sites advertising libido enhancing pill that contains polyrachis vicinia. It
turned out that the ingredient is actually a black mountain ant. Do you have any
idea or knowledge on the effect of this substance on health and/or libido? Is it
an aphrodisiac substance?
We have not come across polyrachis vicinia or black mountain ant research in terms of aphrodisiac benefit.
I've been using an aphrodisiac product called Provigro for the past three weeks. Each capsule contains Maca, Panax Ginseng,
Tongkat Ali, Barrenwort, L-Arginine, L-Lysine, Saw Palmetto, Velvet Bean. I've
been using this product for 3 weeks now (1x capsule 4 times a day for two weeks
and 1x capsule 2 times a day for 1 week). I've noticed a huge difference in my
mood: Much more aggressive, irritated, depressed, mood swings, restless, little
bit paranoid, huge energy spikes! I'm scared of further usage of this Provigro
product, I'm scared that this side-effects will get worse and worse! Which
aphrodisiac herb is the culprit for this awkward feeling? Is my hormones out of
balance now? Can or must I continue to use this product, will it get better? Or
should I leave it? Will Maca Root be able to restore my hormones to normal
balance and will this result in me feeling better again?
Aphrodisiac herbs or formulas should not be used daily, but rather every other day or 2 days on, one or more days off. Many of the herbs in Provigro, in combination or separately, can cause the overstimulation feelings you are experiencing.
I would like to ask some questions regarding the
herbs recommended for better sex. I was wondering which ones are the best to
start with, in case that you are female, cannot tolerate extra alertness because
of trouble sleeping, and know the problem is not due to a shortage of
testosterone. Reading all the information, i come to the conclusion that
ashwaganda or maybe also a low dose of damiana would be the best choice.
These are gentle sex herbs to begin with that may lead to better sex but they are not as potent and may take a few days or a week or two.

We have not seen human trials with asparagus extract in terms of sexual enhancement.
