Did you know that traditional plants have been used for centuries to enhance libido and sexual function and increase sexual pleasure.† It's a safe, natural way for men to invigorate their virility and women to enliven their sexuality.†
Of course, men and women differ in their approaches to sensuality and require different kinds of natural support.
In the Hot Plants® for Her supplement, for example, every ingredient was specifically selected to help women cope with stress, increase energy, and improve sexual satisfaction.† In the Hot Plants® for Him supplement, ingredients have been scientifically shown to increase sexual desire, support sexual function, and boost the male libido.†
Let's start with a look at the herbal ingredients in each, and how they support a healthy sex life.†
Spice up the Romance Season with Hot Plants for Her
Hot Plants® for Her features the ingredients maca, ashwagandha, rhodiola, eleuthero, and catuaba.
Alkaloids, natural chemicals, isolated from the maca root appear to be the clockwork that makes maca tick. These alkaloids act upon the hypothalamus - a small gland in the brain - boosting energy levels and encouraging the body to produce sex hormones.†
Studies show ashwagandha supports red blood cell formation (important for overall energy) and stress resistance - And we all know what a mood-killer stress can be!† In fact, in one study, physical endurance doubled in participants who'd been given extracts of this impressive herb.†
Rhodiola has been used for a long time - the earliest records go back to Ancient Greece, circa 77CE, although it was traditionally used more often in Scandinavia and Russia. Rhodiola seems to act an adaptogen, helping the endocrine system adapt to environmental stresses.† In one clinical study, it improved energy levels in 64% of participants.† In another, it supported healthy reproductive cycles in over 60% of participants.†
Extract of eleuthero bark has long been used in Asia for boosting energy levels and supporting endurance.† Eleuthero appears to help the body adapt to stress by supporting healthy adrenal gland function.†
Catuaba (Erythroxylum catuaba), a common tree found in South America from Brazil to Peru, is in the same genus as the coco plant. Its bark has been consumed for centuries - first by the indigenous culture, and then by later immigrants - for sexual support in both women and men.†
Make your Love Stronger with Hot Plants for Him
As in the Hot Plants for Her formula, the ingredients in Hot Plants® for Him supplements have been used for generations by many traditional cultures and are now being validated by Western science and research.
Maca is not just for the ladies. In a double-blind placebo controlled clinical study of maca extract, men showed improved sexual desire after 8 weeks of use.†
Derived from the bark of an African tree, Pausinystalia yohimbe has been used for over 70 years to support male sexual health and is known to support microvascular health in men.† (Keep in mind that "microvascular" is just another way of saying very small blood vessels," most of which happen to be located in the extremities of the body.) Further scientific research has demonstrated that yohimbine is associated with support of male sexual function.†
Like maca, rhodiola has also been clinically researched for support of male sexual health.† In an open study, 26 of 35 men noted substantial improved support of sexual function, after three months of daily use.†
- Horny Goat Weed
The herb's common name pretty much says it all - Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium sagittatum) has natural compounds with androgenic/anti-estrogenic properties.† Secreted by the adrenals and/or testes, (depending on the sex) androgens promote physical vigor and increased libido in men and women.†
- Panax Ginseng
Like maca, ginseng appears to support the hypothalamus-pituitary axis, and that can benefit healthy sexual function.† Aside from its traditional use, a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, showed that 60% of male patients using panax ginseng reported support for sexual function.†
- Tongkat Ali
A tall, slender shrub-like tree native to the steamy jungle slopes of Malaysia, Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) has a history of use that has recently caught the attention of Western science and modern researchers. Tongkat Ali appears to support healthy male sexual drive possibly through adaptogenic properties, like those found in ginseng and rhodiola.†
