Top 5 Supplements for Dating in 2018


1. Phenibut - for relaxation and stress-reduction

Phenibut is a Nootropic supplement developed in the 1960s to assist with stress reduction and cognitive enhancement. One of the top benefits of Phenibut is its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation, without drowsiness.[1] People often use Phenibut to help make them feel more sociable and open, and it's our supplement of choice for getting into the dating world. Not to be taken lightly, this supplement requires a strict regime to avoid developing tolerance or dependence.[2]   Unlike the other supplements on this list, Phenibut’s best-known benefit is not its effect on libido or vitality. Rather, most people use this supplement as a way to help reduce stress and promote feelings of relaxation. These alone are beneficial in the dating world, which can be very stressful. However, there are also a growing number of reports on the internet indicating that this amazing supplement may also help improve libido. This is not hard to fathom since a healthy libido is so closely tied to feeling relaxed and comfortable.  

2. Tribulus Terrestris - powerful libido enhancer for men

Tribulus terrestris is a plant used in Ayurveda for its benefits on vitality and libido. The roots of this plant are known to support a healthy libido, without affecting testosterone levels, making it a preferred supplement for many people.[3] It is mostly used by men but can be taken by women too. Animal studies have shown that it can act as a potent adaptogen – helping the body to better adapt to and cope with stress.[4]   The active compounds in Tribulus terrestris are called saponins, but the plant extract is packed with numerous secondary beneficial phytochemicals. Tribulus is definitely up there with the top supplements for dating available today, as a potent libido and vitality enhancer. Secondary benefits may include support for healthy organs and a healthy circulatory system.  

3. Icariin - an Ancient Chinese remedy for Vitality

Long used as an ingredient in traditional remedies for sexual health, Icariin (Horny Goat Weed) is extracted from a species of plant known as Yin Yang Hou in China. It is a common component in Chinese remedies for vitality, longevity, and sexual health.[5] Icariin is a potent enhancer of sexual vitality and has physiological effects on PDE5 inhibition which allow it to support male sexual vitality.[6]   PDE5 inhibitors allow for greater blood flow through smooth muscle cells, something that is very important for supporting a healthy circulatory system as well as sexual vitality and libido. Icariin supplements are recommended for singles as well as for couples looking for something new and exciting.  

4. Maca Root - the Peruvian Power Supplement

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is another well-known natural aphrodisiac supplement, originally grown in the high mountains of Peru. The root of this plant contains the highest concentration of active components and is sought after as a dietary supplement today.[7] Maca supplements are known to improve libido in both men and women without affecting hormone levels. It has been used in Peru for hundreds, if not thousands, of years for its effects on sexual vitality and general well-being. There is research coming out which suggests that Maca may have a host of secondary health benefits – for example, acting as a neuroprotector, supporting healthy bones, and even supporting healthy cognitive function and memory.[8] There is definitely room for more research into this interesting supplement, and it is one of our favourites for 2018!

5. Yohimbine HCl - The African Aphrodisiac Bark

A compound that is found in the Central African Yohimbe tree, Yohimbine helps to improve libido and sexual vitality without affecting hormone levels.[9] Furthermore, it helps to support a healthy metabolism and may reduce appetite.[10] A great supplement to take for anybody who is active and healthy and looking to get back in the dating scene. Couples also use Yohimbine HCl as an aphrodisiac and mood-enhancing supplement.   Yohimbine is powerful and certainly gets the job done. In addition to its aphrodisiac effects, this supplement also acts as a powerfully energizing compound, helping to improve physical and mental energy levels and to support a healthy metabolism. People who are working out love using this supplement for its energizing and metabolism-supporting benefits. However, it interacts with a large number of medications and needs to be used responsibly.
