women do not have the same luxury as their male counterparts because of how their
A woman’s menstrual cycle, coupled with different hormones at play, can affect a
woman’s sex drive. Despite the fact that women are advised not to take the same libido-
boosting supplements that men do, they can instead turn to food as there are some that
are known to improve sex drive in both men and women.
Today, I am going to highlight some foods that may boost a woman’s libido.
1. Ginkgo Biloba

Panax ginseng is an herb that was predominantly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine
and for good reasons. It actually brings a lot of health benefits.
It one study, a group of women that were given Panax ginseng supplements shows
remarkable improvements in their libido and the said supplement was also documented
to help fight sexual dysfunction than the women in the placebo group.
Saffron is an expensive spice but it is one of the best when it comes to giving more
flavor to your foods. That being said, there are some studies that suggest that this
particular spice can help improve sexual arousal, though more research would have to
be conducted in order to document its improvement in sexual desire (if any).
Fenugreek’s effects in helping libido have been well-documented in men, but women
can certainly get some of the benefits as well. It can be used as an additive to your
foods or it can also be taken in supplement form as well.
5. Red Wine
Aside from the fact that red wine is known to give a lot of health benefits, it is also used
as a means to improve female libido too.
6. Dark Chocolate
Women really love chocolate and for good reasons. Aside from it being so delicious and
can be added to just about anything, dark chocolate, in particular, contains polyphenols
which can help produce aphrodisiac effects.
This drink contains caffeine which not only helps boost energy levels in both men and
women, but its effects can also help relax the mind and body, allowing you to improve
your sexual desire and performance.
However, if you are the type of person that gets the jitters or is anxious after consuming
coffee, then I suggest that you take something else instead.
9. Saw Palmetto
Mostly taken in supplement form, there are some studies that indicate Saw Palmetto’s
positive effects on increasing men’s and women’s libido.
10. Raw Oysters
One of the most popular aphrodisiacs out there, raw oysters contains a lot of minerals
that can help boost your sex drive.
