When you’re deep in a fertility journey, sex can be…unsexy! To get the ovulation fire going, here are 3 nutrients you can have to improve your moods & blood flow (you as in both you & your partner)
1st: B Vitamins: Almost all B vitamins have a big role in energy production. But specifically, B6, B9 and B12. With the kind of lifestyle most folks lead today, they’re both brain-fried & physically exhausted at the end of a day. Too tired to enjoy sex. These 3 B vitamins carry oxygen to your tissues, release extra glucose as fuel for your muscles, & produce serotonin and dopamine which make you feel good, energetic & motivated.
2nd is Zinc: While we all know zinc is needed for sperm health, what you may not be aware of is that supplementing with zinc can increase testosterone in BOTH men & women, leading to greater sexual desire, satisfaction & vaginal lubrication.
Final one I’d recommend is arginine. Arginine produces nitric oxide which dilates blood vessels and improves blood flow. If the man has mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, arginine could be your answer.
A final point: You must speak to your fertility practitioner on the kind of supplement you will need & their dosage. Please don’t self-dose.
