Improving Libido and sexual health involves more than just a few aphrodisiac herbs. Although these herbs will greatly increase your sexual desire, arousal, and improve function, it will not be a permanent solution unless combined with the proper foods, and the proper exercise.
Although some of the herbs mentioned here work relatively fast, it is very important to note that these herbs must be consumed daily, for a period of a few months to fully rejuvenate the reproductive system and achieve long-lasting results. These herbs are not the same as taking western pharmaceutical medicines like Viagra. These herbs nourish, rejuvenate, and restore the reproductive systems to a healthy state. In some cases, people are able to regain the sexual desire and abilities they had when much younger.
In Ayurvedic Medicine, the medicinal herbs mentioned below fall in a pharmacological category known as “rejuvenating”. They rejuvenate the entire body, counteract the effects of stress and improve health and vigor. In pharmacological terms, they can fall into the categories of adaptogens, anabolic agents, stimulants, aphrodisiacs, immuno-modulators, impotence Agents, and vasodilators.

Apart from the physiological benefits of Ashwagandha, it also helps reduce anxiety and stress (see study). When stressed out or anxious, vaginal lubrication may be hampered.
