    Pomegranate Juice for Better Sex 

    Pomegranate
    The Greeks credited pomegranate with aphrodisiac qualities and now modern science is discovering why.

    New studies are showing a glass of pomegranate juice every day can increase men’s sex drive, ease erectile dysfunction and even increase sperm quality.

    The purple-coloured fruit has more anti-oxidants than red wine, green tea or blueberries, and is known to have excellent anti-aging properties, with benefits for everything from wrinkle- free glowing skin to better heart and circulatory health.

    But now the free radical action of the anti-oxidants is also proving a winner for improved sexual performance.

    Pomegranates for Erectile Dysfunction

    Nearly half of the men (47%) who drank a glass of pomegranate juice a day reported they got better erections, compared with only 32% in a placebo group, in an Los Angeles based randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind, crossover pilot study.

    Researchers from The Male Clinic, Beverly Hills, and University of California, Los Angeles said the findings are very encouraging as they suggest there is a non-invasive, non-drug way to potentially alleviate an issue that affects so many men.

    “For men with ED, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise. Drinking pomegranate juice daily could be an important addition to the diet in the management of this condition,” said co-author Harin Padma-Nathan from UCLA.

    (International Journal of Impotence Research, doi: 10.1038/sj.ijir.3901570).

    The results support an earlier study also showing the long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may help combat erectile dysfunction (Journal of Urology, July 2005).

    Pomegranates for Increased Sex Drive

    In another study, researchers asked 14 couples to perform a series of tasks after drinking pomegranate, orange or cranberry juice.

    These included asking the couples to kiss and showed them images of scantily-clad models of the opposite sex. The team at Mindlabs International, at Sussex University, found the couples kissed more passionately after drinking pomegranate juice, sending their vital signs soaring. The effect was significantly more noticeable in the men.

    Pomegranates for Sperm Health

    And in another research project, seven weeks of daily pomegranate juice enhanced the quality and mobility of sperm in male rats.

    The link between the antioxidant-rich juice and male fertility could see pomegranate seen as much more than a heart healthy food, if the new results published in Clinical Nutrition can be translated to humans.

    Also Good for Hot Flushes

    Pomegranate alleviates menopausal symptoms like hot flushes in mice and has been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Sept. 26, 2005).

    It’s also been shown to help support the body’s natural defences against Alzheimer’s disease, various cancers, coronary and heart diseases, arthritis and other chronic illnesses. It reduces plaque in the arteries, and reduces “bad” and raises “good” cholesterol.

    Other research reports suggest that pomegranate juice might help reduce the risk of breast cancer.

    Herbal Answer to Erectile Dysfunction

    Pomegranate juice is just one of a number of non invasive, non drug options for erectile dysfunction. Herbs like tribulus terrestris found in Herbal Ignite can also be beneficial.

    Hot Herbs for Valentines 

    The quest for the perfect aphrodisiac is as long as human history, and yet many sex experts – Dr Ruth among them – still say the most important sex organ is located between the ears – as in “it’s all in your mind.”

    Chocolate, oysters, avocado and honey have all had their place as romance boosters in 5000 years of folklore, although 20 years ago the FDA poured a cold shower on the whole idea of libido lifters as “unscientific.”

    However as the baby boomers reach 60 and notice things ain’t what they used to be in the bedroom, many are discovering that centuries of human experience can’t be dismissed as simple “anecdote”. Natural enhancement has been around since man walked upright, and natural sex boosters are coming out of the closet.

    So here’s our pick of A Lover’s Dozen of Sex Boosting Herbs to add an extra spark to Valentines Day for men and women. For info on where you can find health products containing some of these herbs, go to http://www.herbalignite.com.

    Tribulus Terrestris

    A testosterone enhancer from Europe which works for both men and women (in women it helps with menopause symptoms). Lifts performance and libido.

    Damiana

    South America shrub induces a testosterone effect and was used by the ancient Mayans as an aphrodisiac drink. Scientific effects recorded over 100 years ago.

    Guarana

    A stimulant also known as Brazilian cocoa and a national beverage there. Guarana increases energy and libido, helps with weight loss, soothes nerves and fights free radicals.

    Ginseng

    Used by North American Indians as a general tonic to give extra energy and strength. (Daniel Boone used to pick wild ginseng and sell it in New York.) Widely used to improve overall energy and vitality, particularly during times of fatigue or stress. Beneficial for diabetics as studies show it normalizes glucose levels after meals.

    Gingko Biloba

    Counters impotence. Ultrasound examinations of 60 impotent men who took ginkgo biloba herb showed improved penile blood circulation after six weeks. After six months, 50% of the patients had regained potency. Many other benefits including increases blood flow to the brain, reduces risk of heart attacks and stroke. Good for treating complications from diabetes, particularly nerve damage and eye problems. Ginko biloba may put the pep back lost as a result of taking anti-depressants.

    Horny Goat Weed Herb

    A performance enhancer and a libido and energy booster for both men and women.

    Saw Palmetto

    Excellent herb for prostate health, sexual functioning and desire. Shrinks the prostate, relieves the major symptoms of enlarged prostate – benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

    For Women

    Tong Kat Ali

    Also called Long Jack, an Asian forest extract with consistent performance boosting properties. Just watch out for insomnia as a possible side effect, so perhaps take it in the morning for good effects later in the day.

    Black Cohosh

    Popular as a natural alternative treatment for women’s menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flushes.

    Chaste Tree Berry

    Also known as Vitex, the Chaste berry well known since ancient times for treating “womens problems”. It is mentioned in Homer’s 6th century BC epic the Iliad and was known to “The Father of Medicine” Hippocrates in the 4th century. Chaste berries are used in treating PMS and menopause.

    Dong Quai

    Also known as Chinese angelica (and not related to the European Angelica) Dong is considered the ultimate, all-purpose woman’s tonic herb. It is used for almost every gynecological complaint from regulating the menstrual cycle to treating menopausal symptoms caused by hormonal changes, including dryness and hot flushes.

    Wild Yam

    Has progesterone-favourable effects on the body, because it contains a compound from which progesterone is made. Wild Yam extract helps regulate the estrogen /progesterone ratio, normalizing imbalance. Good for menopausal problems such as sleeplessness, hot flushes and vaginal dryness and for menstrual cramps. Topically applied progesterone creams can help with sexual health.

    The pioneer in the use of natural progesterone was Dr John Lee, who investigated natural progesterone in his book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause – The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone. Dr Lee coined the term “estrogen dominance” and was one of the first to show that synthetic hormones did not do what was claimed and could be harmful to health. His book lists recommended creams of guaranteed quality. Although Dr Lee died in 2003, his work is continued on his official website at John Lee MD (http://www.johnleemd.com/)
