Summary of Libido and Sexual Health

Primary Information, Benefits, Effects, and Important Facts

These supplements may affect various aspects of sexuality, namely sexual desire (libido), the enjoyment of sex (satisfaction), and sexual function/wellness (erections, lubrication, pain).

Supplements that affect sexuality may do so through altering the levels and signaling of hormones related to sexual desire such as testosterone and estrogens, and progesterone. They may have indirect actions due to their affects on fatigue, depression, and stress, or may affect sexual function through enabling vasodilation, both in male and female sex organs.
