So I have now written over 100 posts on this website and have successfully been experimenting with herbal and natural remedies to increase libido and overall health for many years now. I want to share with you a homemade tea I regularly use to help maintain healthy testosterone levels, relax and increase my libido levels.
Sounds to good to be true, right? Well this recipe does work and Ill explain why below.
This tea recipe can be used by anyone and is great especially if you are into bodybuilding or in a cutting phase due to it being packed with a large amount of nutrients without the need of heavy digestion.
Argentinian scientists from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry, University of Buenos Aires, studied Damiana, in addition to several other plant extracts, and found that it had potent aphrodisiac properties.
Their research confirmed that the plant is able to improve sexual dysfunction in men by relaxing the small muscles within the walls of the arteries of the penis. This is important because when the arteries are relaxed they widen and allow more blood to pass through them, which is what causes an erection.
It is important to remember that since Damiana is a naturally-occurring herb, its effectiveness as an aphrodisiac can be best ascertained only when it is used in moderation over a period of time.
Damiana even though with a lack of scientific studies had been used to help decrease anxiety and reduce stress levels. This is what makes it one of the most complete herbal teas and my favorite. Herbal fanatics also love to give Damiana a try due to it known ability to help increase the chances of having erotic dreams. I regularly use damiana tea and confess for its ability to improve the chances of having erotic dreams. Placebo or not ? The dreams occur so I cant complain. (Lucid erotic dreams with Damiana).
Note: If you cant find it in herbal form which is what I prefer. You can always try it in its liquid extract form (product link).
Bee pollen is one of nature’s complete foods as it is packed with all the nutrients our body needs. Due to these nutrients Bee pollen helps at increasing testosterone, reduces stress and improves sexual health. The vitamins, minerals and amino acids in bee pollen help to reduce stress, therefore it will also help at increasing testosterone production and libido. Due to it being packed with antioxidants and zinc it may also help increase sperm count, playing a major role in boosting fertility in men. Taking bee pollen will result in a healthier body and a greater sex life.
How to have bee pollen in tea
I use a bee pollen honey formula in tea which is a great way to help bring the healing properties into your body. The temperature that bee pollen would lose it’s beneficial properties is 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Food that has not been cooked or heated above 118 degree F is considered raw. All the enzymes will be present. Since boiling point is 212 degrees F, you will have to wait a short time for it to cool to get maximum results.

lemon juice has been shown to increase citrate levels in urine, a factor that discourages kidney stones from forming and helps with cleansing the kidneys. If you dont know alreay I love my traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). TCM teaches us that kidneys play vital role in sexual functioning as they store sexual energy. This is one major reason you should keep your kidneys healthy by consuming natural remedies such as lemon juice. For more information about TCM and kidney health check out this website (link).
Coconuts oil Is one of the best sources of fats men can consume. Health fats are needed to help the production of testosterone levels. Results from studies provides us with evidence that coconut oil is able to prevent oxidative stress in testicles thanks to its antioxidant effects, and therefore also preserve testosterone levels from oxidative damage. For more about this topic check out my post (Does coconut oil help with increasing testosterone production?).
Coconut oil has also scientifically been proven to increase metabolism within the body. The higher your resting basal metabolic rate is the more calories your body will burn throughout the day.
