With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, people are going to be on the lookout for products that can enhance their love lives. From toys to foods that promise to be aphrodisiacs, there are many products available that promise to boost the libido and assist lovers with bringing a little something extra to their sexy time.
Dietary supplements are not typically one’s first thought when looking to increase libido, but the right supplement can help bring about transformational change — both on the scale and in the bedroom. Valentine’s Day is an especially popular time for people to seek libido-boosting supplements. Typically deemed aphrodisiacs, after the love goddess Aphrodite, supplements such as ginseng, zinc, ginkgo biloba, and horny goat weed (no pun intended) have been linked to boosts between the sheets. However, often the scientific support for such aphrodisiacs can be weak, if not non-existent.
Beyond Slim, a health and wellness company that seeks to help people live healthier and happier lives has introduced a new supplement called ZipSlim. This supplement not only helps users lose more weight than dieting alone and improve energy levels but it has been found to boost libido as well. What sets their new supplement apart from its other libido-boosting cousins is its doctor-derived development and scientific support.
Look and feel better
It’s no secret that when you eat better, move your body, and, as a result, lose weight, you feel better all over. It’s common sense to assume then that your sex drive and performance in the bedroom will improve as well. Studies show that losing weight can cause testosterone levels to rise in both men and women, thereby improving their libido. When one is overweight or living an unhealthy lifestyle, sex can be the last thing on their mind. Obesity can cause other health issues, both physical and emotional that can quickly squash any sex drive. However, the various other ways weight loss can contribute to a libido boost can be surprising.
An unhealthy diet and obesity can lead to high cholesterol, causing build-up in the blood vessels and slowing blood flow to all areas of the body — including the parts you typically count on to have blood rushing to during intercourse. Obesity can slow everything down, leading to a sluggish malaise that leaves a lack of motivation for those more intimate moments. The effects of obesity on the libido are both physical and mental and can be challenging to overcome without help. Even if one wants to celebrate Valentine’s Day with their significant other in the bedroom, it can be a struggle to get over the various hurdles that an unhealthy lifestyle places in their path.
A better supplement for overall health
The company’s products include a combination of ingredients that studies have proven to help with the libido, including ashwagandha, an organic member of the nightshade family that grows in India and parts of the Middle East. Used in the traditional medicine of India called Ayurveda, ashwagandha has a long history among natural medicine devotees. The shrub is commonly used as an addition to supplements to combat stress, reduce swelling, and lower blood pressure, but it also has a positive effect on the libido. In fact, its effectiveness in increasing power, stamina, and testosterone production are so well known that it is a popular supplement for elite athletes.
“There are some amazing clinical studies on the power of ashwagandha and its direct effect on libido,” says Dr. Mark Drukcer M.D., the company’s Medical Director. “Our Ashwagandha is the best in the world. It’s organic KSM-66 from India.”
A noted aphrodisiac, ashwagandha is an ingredient in the company’s latest supplement, along with GreenSelect phytosome green tea, quercetin, ginger extract, and milk thistle extract. These ingredients, along with others, form the supplement’s Metabolic Activation Complex, helping with reduced stress, increased stamina, and more energy in the bedroom. “The quality of ingredients matters, and ours are the best. Couple that with a boost of energy and confidence, and you find losing weight becomes a full circle package for a better time in the bedroom,” says Rachel Kellogg, the company’s VP of Sales.
Products that boost libido are not all the same
There are many products on store shelves that claim to make you randier. Male enhancement pills and other sexual supplements offer promises of better sexual health but can often contain hidden ingredients that can be dangerous — if not deadly. “A lot of libido-boosting products for weight loss products are flat out not good for you,” says Kellogg.
Not all libido-boosting products are the same or made with overall health in mind. Some can contain hidden ingredients that could be dangerous for people, especially those with health concerns.
Dr. Drucker combines decades of traditional and alternative medicine knowledge into one effective product. He and his team are transparent about the ingredients that go into their supplements and care deeply about their products being safe and proven effective. Their latest supplement contains no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. In addition, they are gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, vegetarian, keto, and paleo-friendly. The focus for the company is to make their supplement a healthy way of boosting weight loss (and libido) as well as overall health.
“With our new supplement, you’re getting incredible results and peace of mind knowing what you are putting in your body is actually good for you,” explains Dr. Drucker.
Better health beyond Valentine’s Day
The company’s latest supplement offers a libido boost to give your love life that extra spark this Valentine’s Day and is a great addition to a healthy diet plan for the rest of the year. Being overweight can have a negative effect on several areas of one’s life, including the libido. The cultural and medical messages we receive daily all point to weight loss being the path to better overall health and happiness.
For those struggling with their weight, the mental toll that being unable to shed that excess weight can have can be devastating. Losing even a little weight can stimulate sex hormones, get the blood flowing to the pelvic areas, and — best of all — make you feel sexier. Through their innovative supplements, Dr. Drucker and his team help give people the tools they need to live healthier, happier lifestyles in the bedroom and beyond.
