Top 5 Supplements for Better Sex


DHEA is a hormone that is naturally produced by the adrenal glands in both men and women, and when it comes to supplementation, most people turn to it for its ability to help build lean muscle mass and fight fat accumulation. The effects are so strong, in fact, that the NCAA has banned DHEA supplements.

DHEA levels in men typically begin to decline after the age of 30, which also marks the age when they start to experience the effects of those hormonal imbalances including loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. And the good news is that, as long as you’re not a collegiate athlete, you can safely take DHEA to normalize those hormone levels and give your sex life an all-natural boost.

5. Vitamin D

It is estimated that up to 90% of the American population has some degree of Vitamin D deficiency, especially those with darker skin or who live in colder climates and experience less sun exposure throughout the year. As a result, many processed foods are regularly fortified with Vitamin D, as experts understand the nutrient’s ability to prevent bone loss, prevent cancer, fight heart disease and enhance the immune system. What the experts don’t say, however, is that Vitamin D is also instrumental in maintaining testosterone levels in men.

My advice for men with low testosterone: You can try every other supplement mentioned here, but if your Vitamin D levels are low, your testosterone levels will stay low, too. To increase your levels (and make sure everything’s working properly in the sack), I would recommend avoiding fortified packaged foods and would, instead, suggest getting 20 minutes of direct sunlight daily. When that’s not possible, supplement with 5,000 IUs of Vitamin D3. A 2011 study published in the journal Hormone and Metabolic Research showed that similar vitamin D supplementation naturally boosted testosterone levels in overweight men by up to 30 percent.
