When we go through human history, food, drinks, and behaviors have had a reputation for making sex more attainable and pleasurable. Some of them were identified having qualities of increasing the libido, the sexual drive in men. These are known as aphrodisiacs.
An aphrodisiac is defined as a food or drug that arouses sexual instinct, brings on desire or increases sexual pleasure or performance and provide satisfaction.
Naturally, aphrodisiacs are myriad of pharmaceutical drugs available and marketed specifically for their libido-boosting effects.
However, people now prefer natural alternatives, which are identified by our forefathers and recommended by earlier physicians. They are generally safer and tend to have fewer side effects than their commercial counterparts.
An aphrodisiac is a substance that increases sex drive when consumed. Aphrodisiacs are distinct from substances that address fertility issues. Some aphrodisiacs are Musli, ashwagandha, nutmeg, saffron and drumstick to name a few used by our forefathers and passed on to the younger generations
