Fight, flight, freeze, feed, and fornication, the 5 F’s, are affected by the main sex hormone for men called testosterone. Balancing testosterone will impact the feel-good hormones including dopamine and this increases self-confidence especially when it comes to sex.1✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1016/j.physbeh.2005.08.006

Studies now prove that targeted nutritional therapy works to balance testosterone levels due to age-related decline needed to increase libido, muscle mass strength for better energy.2✅ REFERENCE MayoClinic The age of evidence-based science is upon us, proving which herbs or nutrients work and those that are myth related.

Common causes of lowered sexual satisfaction

  • Testosterone reduction due to age leading to low libido and desire.5✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.2147/cia.s190
  • Erectile dysfunction or poor blood flow affecting ‘hardness’ and low powered orgasms or ejaculation.
  • Physical pain – erodes into energy, motivation, and sexual desire. Back, neck and knee pain are the most common.
  • Cortisol hormone output during anxiety and stress including the ‘pressure-to-perform’ including questions such as, “Can I get an erection, sustain it and orgasm?”, being solo and not having a partner or having an unexpected opportunity. Having a partner but sex is low or non-existent.
  • Poor physical and mental energy or stamina.
  • Certain health conditions including heart function, depression, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
  • Lifestyle extras including intake of alcohol, prescription drugs, recreational drugs, lack of exercise or lack of sleep.

Did you resonate with any of them? Don’t despair,we’ve got the hard stuff out the way. Now we get to look at the real science and how to get your satisfaction.

You need to know about the leaves and fruit from Tribulus (Tribulus terrestris). The best scientific research comes from Bulgarian studies focusing on the natural compound from Tribulus containing protodioscin. This natural steroidal saponinis responsible for positive effects on sexual performance, orgasmic function, heart disease, heart attacks,high blood pressure and inflammation in the muscles and joints.6✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1016/j.maturitas.2017.01.0117✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.4103/0973-7847.1255308✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.3109/19390211.2014.887602 9✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1196/annals.1397.04510✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1024/0300-9831/a000649 11✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.26402/jpp.2018.6.14 One study showed that Tribulus also reduced exercise fatigue and boosted testosterone, helping recovery and fatigue in 30 healthy males.12✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.3390/nu13113969

Interestingly when used, Tribulus doesn’t overstimulate testosterone, reducing the worry of steroidal side-effects, although further studies are needed using the correct pharmacological profiles of Tribulus and participants for future studies.13✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.3390/biom1005075214✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1016/j.maturitas.2017.01.01115✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE DOI: 10.1016/j.jep.2005.05.017

Psychological Impacts

Stress and anxiety affect sensual desire, physical blood flow and sexual performance boosting blood flow, without causing heart attacks, is the benefit choosing natural supplements over drugs.

Saffron flower stigmas stimulate the NO stimulation pathway to improve erection, cause vasodilation of the penile tissues to prevent erectile dysfunction and relaxes the muscles for better blood flow, but the big nod is that saffron also has a bearing on mood.29✅ REFERENCE: Nutraceutical

Specialised saffron extracts decrease heart rate while improving mood related depressive symptoms and increase resilience against the development of stress-related disorders – several of them linked to sexual performance.

Many pharmaceutical anti-depressants reduce libido however saffron reduces cortisol-stress- hormone levels. Balancing this powerful hormone with saffron is important for stronger erections and an sense of calm, deep sleep, balanced blood pressure and cholesterol.
