Epimedium brevicornum

In Asia, these leaves have been used for treating fatigue and boosting sex drive since the 16th century. Despite its funny name, "horny goat weed" is a time-tested aphrodisiac that increases libido in men and women, and improves erectile function in men. While the exact way it works remains unknown, the plant has long been employed to revitalize sexual functioning, restore sexual fire, boost erectile function, and allay fatigue.

Panax ginseng

Panax ginseng is considered the king of all tonics and the most revered of all aphrodisiacs, and has been used for centuries to ease sexual fatigue and increase sexual vitality. Research has shown that ginseng contains a group of compounds known as ginsenosides that have been proven to enhance libido and performance in studies of both animals and humans. Researchers have succeeded in separating each of the ginsenoside components of Panax ginseng. One of these compounds was found to be responsible for assisting penile erection by directly inducing the vasodilatation and relaxation of corpus cavernosum.

Cordyceps sinensis

Cordyceps could be the next ginseng due to its reported effects on increasing energy levels, sex drive and athletic performance (you may remember mention of cordyceps a few years ago when Chinese athletes came from nowhere to break world records in swimming and running). In Asian herbal medicine, cordyceps is famous as an aphrodisiac. It is believed to alleviate fatigue, and improve physical endurance, enhance libido, and restore sexual function.

Lycium barbarum

Lycium barbarum is a famous Chinese medicine. Traditionally, it was regarded in Asia as a strength building and sexual potency food, and has been used as a strong sexual tonic. It is believed to boost sex drive by increasing production of testosterone, sperm quantity and quality. 

Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo is a popular herb for boosting blood flow to the brain (improving memory) and fingers, not many people realize it also boosts blood flow to the genitals. It relaxes blood vessels and enhances circulation to the peripheries to improve maintenance of an erection, even at a relatively low dose. It helps people with low sex drive, mental fatigue, poor memory, and stress, and would also benefit male smokers who tend to have less firm erections. Recent human clinical trial studies showed that Ginkgo biloba extract appears to be a safe and effective long-term remedy for sexual dysfunction.
