Knowing how to increase libido in men can also be a benefit to women. Men with low libidos might still be intimate but may lose interest in sex. If a male has a low libido, it can put extra stress on a relationship to the point of destroying it. The partner of a man with a low libido may even blame themselves for their lack of sex. Most men will have an active libido well into their eighties, if not, something will have to be done if he has an interest in sexual activity.
- Choose your foods wisely. Garlic is a great food for a man's libido. Garlic has high levels of Allicin, Allicin increases blood flow throughout the body which will help wake your member up. Cook with garlic, toss garlic on top of salads and make sure you use a dressing that also contains garlic. Also keep some breath fresheners close by for intimate moments. Eat foods rich in the mineral zinc such as nuts, pumpkin seeds, wheat germ and dark chocolate. Foods rich in zinc will raise a male's testosterone levels, higher testosterone levels will equal a higher libido.
- Get physically active. The more active a male is, the more sexually active he will want to be. An in-shape male's body has more testosterone moving freely through it which will keep him in the mood for sex. Make time for you and your partner to workout together, it'll be a great way to get both of your libidos going in the right direction.
- Drink more water. Water transports nutrients throughout your system and is essential for all of your bodily functions. Dehydration will decrease hormone production, especially testosterone which is a libido hormone. Drink more than the recommended eight glasses of water per day.
- Rest. Get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Your eight hours should be in one lump, not five hours one night and eleven hours the next night. Sex hormones are produced while you sleep. If possible retire early and go for nine or ten hours of sleep a night.
Warning, garlic is one of nature's antibacterial foods. Make sure you eat yogurt if you are going to eat large amounts of garlic. The acidophilus in yogurt will help replenish the good bacteria in your body that might get flushed out by the garlic.
