Tribulus Terrestris Extract Can Give You Big Muscles and Big Libido!

Tribulus Terrestris Extract is a famous herb in the bodybuilding realm. I know this first hand. Well, not first hand- but maybe second. :)

My neighbor, in college, was a bodybuilder. Every Friday we would gather to play a round of poker or two. During my poker attempts, I couldn’t help but stare at his plethora of supplements on the counter. Tribulus Terrestris was one of them. He swore it made a difference. For his muscles, that is. I didn’t ask about libido. :)

I know you aren’t here to learn about gaining muscle strength, so let’s cut to the chase.

Benefits Of Tribulus Terrestris

There are a few. One huge benefit is that it stimulates testosterone in both men and women. Why is this important? Because higher testosterone levels lead to a higher sex drive. Here are a few more:

Well, it depends on what results you are trying to achieve. Bigger muscles = inconclusive. Libido = A good probability!

Tribulus Terrestris Reviews

Damiana Tea May Not Be The Answer To Low Libido!

Damiana Tea. I’m not going to lie, when I heard Damiana comes in tea form … I was excited! I’m a sucker for herbal teas. I’ll do anything to avoid swallowing pills. Coined as the “lovers tea,” this peeked my interest.

So I investigated…

What Is Damiana?

Damiana Tea is native to Central and South America. It’s sometimes referred to as Mexican Damiana. It comes in tea, herb, and extract form. It’s most widely used to increase libido and is sometimes referred to as “natures aphrodisiac.”

Sounds good to me…

Damiana Tea comes from a shrub. The shrub flowers into these beautiful yellow flowers that are then used for their aphrodisiac abilities. The leaves are then dried and made into tea. You can buy Damiana seeds and start the process right in your own backyard.

This herb helps with other ailments, as well …

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Menstrual Problems
  • Impotence
  • Stress
  • Prostate Problems

Sounds good, right? Unfortunately, I found some pretty bad side effects of Damiana… 

Damiana Side Effects

I vow to always tell the truth. I’m not going to lie “Damiana Tea” is a search term that is in demand. The buzz is out on this libido increasing tea.

Unfortunately, I won’t try it…

Investigating Damiana side effects made me hesitate to order it. Why use something that has a 50/50 chance of increasing libido and with a slew of side effects? Especially when there are great herbs that are void of side effects!

Here are complaints and side effects of Damiana …

  • Headaches
  • Insomnia (Due To Caffeine)
  • Liver damage
  • Hard on the stomach
  • Makes you jittery
  • MAO Inhibitor
  • Can’t take while pregnant
  • Sore Breasts (This could be due to your breasts increasing in size)

The above statement is only my opinion. If you chose to give it a try, drink the tea 2-3 times a day for maximum benefits.

Interesting Facts

  1. I had to throw this one in. Damiana was once thought of as a herbal marijuana. The “high” was similar to that of pot.
  2. Rumor has it that this may be a good herb to take to increase your bust size. Hence why a side effect is sore breasts.
  3. Though I won’t drink the tea, my husband I will have a small glass of damiana liqueur after dinner. Mostly on nights that we are going to be intimate. This liqueur is from Mexico and has been used for centuries to increase desire in women. LOL! Well….it does have an arousing effect. I experience non of the above side effects with the liquor.

  • Likelihood of internal bleeding
  • Allergic reaction

Top 10 Herbs For Libido!

Top 10 Herbs For Libido!

Herbs for libido do work! I won’t bore you with any herbal definitions or Chinese Chi, but I am a huge fan of herbs for several reasons:

  • They come from mother nature
  • Little to no side effects (for most)
  • Relatively inexpensive (compared to drugs like Viagra)
  • They are not merely a band-aid for the problem. Herbs work with your body to fix the problem.

There was a time in my life when I would pill pop. If I had a headache, I would reach for a bottle of Advil. My belief in western medicine was pretty high. That’s changed. I’m glad about that switch because our earth produces so many natural remedies. Yes, even for low libido. So…bring on the herbs!

Ummm…hands down. The proof is in thousands of reviews by individuals, just like you. They do help boost libido. Again, everyone is different. I might think that a certain aphrodisiac herb is the holy grail, all while you don’t feel  a thing!

Viagra is becoming a thing of the past. Viagra only delivers one benefit…a hard erection. However, libido herbs help with multiple sexual problems. If you find a herb that works it can increase libido, help with erectile dysfunction, and heighten your orgasm.

Different bodies…different responses. Play around with these sexual herbs.

Have You Had Your Maca Root Today?

Maca Root is a superfood and super libido booster! I have a tendency to get way too excited about Maca. I think you’ll see why…

Maca came into my life years ago. Long before our libido boosting journey. I’m a self proclaimed health nut. I grew up on lentils and brussel sprouts; I suppose I was groomed to eat healthily.

Anyway, I read about the incredible health benefits of Maca and knew that I had to incorporate it into my diet. Unfortunately, I had to stop using it…but more on that later.

What Is Maca?

The Maca herb is a Peruvian root vegetable grown in the Andes Mountains. The Maca plant is so powerful compared to other root vegetables.


Maca Root is grown in such harsh conditions that it sucks up minerals from the earth just to survive. We ingest the root and all those earthly minerals. So, we reap the benefits of the harsh Andes conditions.

The Peruvians grow it and consume it. They use it for every ailment/disease known. Reminds me of the Windex bottle in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Got a cut? Spray Windex on it. Fortunately, Maca is much more realistic than Windex. :)

Benefits of Maca

Maca extract is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It helps regulate our bodily functions. Take a look:

  • Boost Energy
  • Helps With Sleep
  • Regulates Menstruation Cycles
  • Regulates Menopausal Symptoms
  • Helps Adrenal Gland Function
  • Helps With Stress And Anxiety
  • Give You Greater Stamina
  • Balances Hormones
  • Increases Womanly Curves

What about Libido?

Maca Libido

Maca is the mecca of libido boosting herbs. It contains sterols that are believed to block the production of estrogen and boost testosterone. This leads to both men and women (yes women produce testosterone) feeling hornier…I mean more sexual. Speaking of the reproductive area, it also helps with infertility and erectile dysfunction.

Maca is an extraordinary sex enhancing agent; it will rock your world!

Maca Root Side Effects

I’m pleased to say that the side effects are minimal. I mentioned that this herb increases curves. This is why I had to quite taking it. Great for those who are not already curvy, but not for those of us curvier ladies. Or those who have a tendency to be curvy. Here are other side effects of Maca:

  • Increased Appetite
  • Bloating
  • Cramping Around Menstrual Period
  • Possible Insomnia (If taken too much)
  • Increased Heart rate

Maca Warning

Always consult a doctor before using. Especially if, you have thyroid disease, allergies to Maca, kidney disease, or liver disease.

Maca Dosage

Start Small!! The Maca Powder is the best form of the supplement. If consuming the Maca supplement in powder form, stick to 1 tablespoonful/day. Be sure to cycle the herb. Take Maca Four days on and 3 days off. Take an entire week off every month. Tolerance kicks in if you do not cycle!

I don’t have any specific Maca recipes. I would blend it into my morning green drink. It needs honey to sweeten it up!!! It is extremely fibrous and thick so blend, blend, blend!

Maca Reviews Or Results

  • “My erections come much easier than before.”
  • “Last longer in the bedroom.”
  • “Seeing great results taking Horney Goat Weed With Maca!”

Where Can I get Maca Root?

Great News! You can buy maca root online easily:

Could Tongkat Ali Be The Next Best Sex Herb?


Tongkat Ali is potent stuff. I had no idea what to expect from this libido herb, but was quite surprised at the outcome.


What Is Tongkat Ali?

I first heard about it on the Dr. Oz show. Dr. Oz was super excited to introduce this sexual stimulant to his audience. He said that it works, and it works well!

Tongkat Ali is a root of a tropical tree from Malaysia. It’s sometimes referred to as LONGJACK and proven to boost libido.

Did I just say proven?

Yes, clinically proven for that matter. In fact, when given to the rat population, rats had more sex. More sex and more togetherness. I know we are not even closely related to the rat species, but this study proved the herbs effectiveness.

Tongkat Ali Benefits

This libido boosting herb has been referred to as many things:

  • “The tree that cures a hundred diseases.”
  • “Natures Viagra”
  • “Asian Viagra”

With all that said, I knew the benefits list was going to be semi-long!

  • Energy Booster
  • Boost Sexual Desire
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Increase Sexual Desire
  • Possible Cancer Fighting Agent
  • Stamina
  • Increases Sensations
  • Ups Performance
  • Gets Blood Flow Moving
  • Increases Testosterone

So why isn’t everyone taking it, you ask?

Tongkat Ali Side Effects

Tongkat is easily misused. Proper dosage is key to reaping the benefits, and leaving the side affects behind. If you notice any of the following side effects, it’s time to adjust your dosage.

  1. Increased Body Temperature
  2. Restlessness
  3. Agressive Behavior
  4. Irritable

What Can you do the prevent this? Start small, more is not necessarily better. The recommended dose is 100mg/day for men and 80mg/day for women. Make sure you cycle on and off this herb. Such as, 2 days on 1 day off.

Skip all coffees and teas and go straight to the extracts. Pure Tongkat Ali Extract is the most potent form of the herb. Be sure that the company discloses the ratio to you and that the supplier gets it from Indonesia!

Some libido herbs start working after a few weeks, however, LongJack begins to work after 3 days! Yes, my husband noticed a difference in as little as 5 days. Really truly unbelievable for a libido herb.

Tongkat Ali Reviews

Ummmmm…yes! After trying multiple libido herbs, I found that Tongkat Ali works the best for my body. I noticed, my husband noticed, and everyone was happy. Here are what others are saying:

  • “I take it with Horny Goat Weed for maximum effect.”
