What do a good sex life and good food have in common? Plenty it seems ! Scientists are delving into this area with increasing enthusiasm and they have every reason. The quality of sex for the average Westerner is on the wane. Sperm counts have never been so low since records were opened. Both partners seem to be so much more toxic these days that the organs (and the mind) are compromised. They are simply not getting enough nutrients. You-can't expect to live off \u201cfast foods\u201d, sandwich lunches and daily tots of alcohol, copious cups of coffee and snacking for those mid-morning and mid-afternoon cravings and then expect to turn on the performance of your life throughout the night. Examine your quality intake of the amino acid histamine if you expect "org-asm" to be a double-barrel word. Found in the glands of the penis and the clitoris, it needs careful replacing, but if you don't replace it after use, it could well let you both down. It is found in apples, pineapple, papaya, all nuts, sunflower seeds, spinach and cauliflower, so ask yourself if you are getting enough. It is also associated with mental tranquillity, but, like all good things in life, it has its opposite number - in excess it causes premature ejaculation. In balance, it is said to help unblock feelings of inadequacy, anger and guilt in a sexual relationship. Supplementation of histamine comes via one of the 10 essential amino acids, called histidine. Energy release to the body's muscles, including the heart, is closely linked with another amino acid (a non-essential) known as carnitine. It is actually made in the liver, but if yours has been a little "sorry for itself\u201d recently, supplementation can be obtained in powder, pill or capsule form. A dry vagina is helped by GLA capsules and flaxseed oil or capsules. Both are freely available. If you start taking them, include some vitamin E and selenium to avoid any possible free-radical oxidation. SEXUALITY can always be increased, the experts tell us. So there is never a need to feel inadequate. If, as a male, you feel outclassed, look to some extra zinc picolinatee and phenylalanine to generate extra libido. Over the centuries herbs have played an endearing and positive role in the battle between the sexes. If available in your country, I'd suggest adding a little damiana into your life, but it's not always available. So, next best, look to Siberian (or other) ginsengs, saffron, slippery elm, hops, sage, willow, scullcap - some choice names here. For more serious conditions, like impotence, saw palmetto is a good catch. For infertility (her) don quai and infertility (him) false unicorn - the names get even better! Frigidity stands to be melted by chick-weed, plantain and saffron. For other areas that may need attention: \tINCREASING DESIRE: phenylalanine, tyrosine, slipperv elm. \tDECREASING DESIRE: hops, sage, scullcap, willow. \tLOW SPERM COUNT: amino acid complex, ornithine, lysine. \tSTRESS\/WORRY: phenylalanine, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C. \tCLUMSY AT IT!: glycine, B complex and extra vitamin B6. \tHE WORRIES HE WONT MAKE IT: niacin, zinc, histidine, B6 (15 minutes before trying) \tPREMATURE EJACULTION: amino acid complex, magnesium \/ calcium complex and a diet that increases raw food intake daily. \tVAGINAL THRUSH: Tea tree oil Have a good night, and may your dreams come true.
