Sure, flowers and chocolates are nice, but if you really want to give a great Valentines gift, might I suggest upping your game in the lovemaking department? The best think about a Valentine’s gift of increased sexual performance, is that it is a gift that will last for months and years after February 14, 2017 has come and gone.

So, why should you take lovemaking advice from  AdaptoGenie?  Well, I have been around for centuries and I have witnessed hundreds of so-called performance enhancers.  And while there may be any number of things that have been classified as aphrodisiacs and/or bedroom boosters, I happen to know the ones that have stood the test of time and have proven to be the most effective.  Why adaptogens to fix your intimacy issues?  For many people, low libido is a direct result of hormonal imbalance, such as low testosterone in men.  Exposure to certain chemicals and poor diet can affect one’s sexual desire and ability to perform.  For this reason, supplementing with natural products can be critical. Adaptogens not only aid the body in holistically adapting to various exposures and stress, but they also help improve circulation, warm the body, and correct underlying hormonal imbalances. In short, they can restore desire and improve performance.


Let me share with you 4 adaptogens that are AdaptoGenie certified to make you a better lover.  (Could this be called adaptogenic 4play?)


  1. Ashwagandha – Used traditional in Ayurvedic medicine to boost libido and fertility in both men and women, ashwagandha has actually been proven in scientific studies to increase vitality, fertility and sex drive.  In one study, researchers concluded that Ashwagandha was found to effectively reduce oxidative stress and thereby solidify its traditional use as a sexual tonic for men.
  2. Maca – Maca is an Andean root that resembles a radish or a turnip and has traditionally been used to balance hormones and boost libido.  Recently, analytical chemists discovered two previously unknown groups of novel compounds in maca, the macamides and macaenes. And though these compounds occur in very small quantities, their effect is significant. Experiments with animals show these two groups of compounds to be very powerful sex and energy enhancers. In the experiments, frequency of copulation and stamina increased radically as the quantities of macamides and macaenes in the diet increased.
  3. Rhodiola – A perennial plant that grows in artic regions of the world, Rhodiola can boost sexual desire in both men and women. At a recent meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, Philip R. Muskin, MD, professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University, and chair of the APA scientific program committee said the following about rhodiola, “Rhodiola appears to have a beneficial effect in enhancing sexual function, it improves satisfaction, pleasure, erections, response to orgasms.”
  4. Eleuthero – Eleuthero not only improves libido but also enhances fertility in both men and women.  With improved sexual fertility comes an enhancement in sexual drive. In addition, the herb also contains estrogens, which are important in controlling menopausal symptoms and hot flashes. Menopausal women often have low sex drives and many health experts recommend the use of eleuthero for libido enhancement.


So there you have it folks, start taking your adaptogens and be a better lover!  This year don’t give a Valentines gift, BE a Valentines gift!
