It can even steal our libido. Eventually too much stress can lead you to avoid romantic times with your partner – which can hurt intimacy, trust and emotional connection.
There have been many studies linking high anxiety with low sex drive.
A 2010 study of pre-menopausal women, age 18 and older, reported that stress was the culprit for 60% of them. Plus, in a study with un-medicated depressive women, 70% were reported to experience a lack of interest in sex due to their depression.Anxiety can make your libido sluggish for many reasons. First, it is tough to feel sexy when you’re caught up with worries and not feeling so good about life. Second, anxiety messes with your hormones – and hormones help keep your libido feeling perky. Third, anxiety is exhausting – and this low level of energy makes it harder to rile up the feisty energy needed for a healthy sex life.
So, what do you do to inspire wanting to do it more often?
Here’s some helpful holistic libido-boosting supplements.
While some things are impossible to replace once they’re taken away from you – your sex drive isn’t necessarily one of them. Sorry anxiety, but we’re taking back control of this one.
By incorporating the supplements above into your daily routine, you can get your body on the right track – and your libido back in the right direction!
