Not “In the Mood”? Try This
People talk about sexual dysfunction like it’s something that primarily affects men.
Newsflash! As you get older, women are just as likely to experience problems as their partners.
I’ve always said that your love life shouldn’t come with an expiration date–but that means that BOTH partners need to be up for the task.
A few weeks ago I shared with you the single nutrient that can help men get and maintain an erection.
Now it’s your turn, ladies.
Just like the men, making sure you’re getting enough of just ONE nutrient could unleash your inner tigress once again.
Last week I let the men in on a little secret: A key nutrient necessary for getting and maintaining an erection is the sunshine vitamin—vitamin D.
Vitamin D is just as important for female sexual function.
In a recent study, 47 women with either all-out vitamin D deficiency (less than 2 ng/mL) or with vitamin D insufficiency (20-30 ng/mL) supplemented with vitamin D for six months.
The women took a questionnaire that evaluated their libido and depressive symptoms.
At the start of the study, those who were vitamin D deficient scored much lower on sexual function—and much higher on scores of depression—than the women who just had insufficient vitamin D.
But after supplementing with vitamin D for six months, ALL of the participants experienced improvements in sexual desire. And those with vitamin D deficiency improved total sexual function scores, as well as scores for sexual satisfaction and orgasm.
They also had a decrease in depression scores.
These are exciting results… but it’s important to note that they didn’t occur overnight.
You can’t pop a vitamin D supplement or spend one morning in the sun and expect to see a magical libido boost.
But unlike any instant-gratification drugs, taking the time to boost your vitamin D levels can actually help fix the underlying problem that led to your libido issues to begin with.
Doing so will help ensure that you’re in the mood and ready to go whenever the moment strikes.
No drugs necessary.
To a brighter day,
