Sexual Health Week 2020 is going down with the actual heat  First, let’s define the terms. Libido simply means sexual desire or sex drive. An aphrodisiac is a food or drug that arouses sexual desire and increases pleasure or performance.

What causes low sex drive?

So, what exactly causes a low sex drive in the first place? Low sexual desire can be caused by a variety of things such as:

  • Stress and fatigue

  • Low testosterone

  • Certain prescription medications

  • Depression

  • Alcohol & drug use

  • Too little or too much exercise

  • Relationship problems

  • Chronic health conditions

  • Hormonal changes, etc.

Depending on the cause, there are a number of natural and medical treatment methods for low libido.

  • Certain fruits such as bananas, strawberries, almonds, avocados & oysters.

  • Chocolate

  • Herbs such as basil, garlic & ginger

Lifestyle Changes for Treatment
