Superfoods For A Sexy time

  • Maca Root {Found in November’s Box}
  • Shilajit {Found in April’s Box}
  • Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed) – The story behind this herbal supplement is every bit as good as its name. As legend has it, a goat herder somewhere in the high elevations of China noticed some peculiar behavior in his flock. But the behavior only came about at certain times. The goat herder couldn’t figure it out. So he studied the flock until he discovered the secret. The goats became overly sexually excited whenever they fed on a particular patch of flowering plants. The patch of pasture, composed of 25 species of herbaceous plants in the family Berberidaceae, was the secret behind the mysterious behavior of the herder’s horny goats. Thus, for the past 2,000 years, it has been known in herbal supplement guides as Horny Goat Weed.
  • Rhodiola rosea is the premium choice to counteract the mental and physical effects of stress, which we all know can have a devastating impact on sexual health and romantic interest. This potent herb helps reduce levels of stress hormones while supporting levels of key brain chemicals involved in regulating mood. It makes sense that if your mood and stress levels are where they should be, you should feel back to normal in the bedroom, too.
