Libido and sexual performance are not taken for granted. They are affected by a lot of things, such as sleep, mental health, deficiencies, hormones, sporting effort…
It is imperative to address all the disorders in the above mentioned categories in order to hope for a real improvement in libido and sexual health. However, some specific nootropics and adaptogenic plants can help you to improve it. We will see in this article which ones, and through which mechanisms of action.
1. Nootropics and libido : the best ones
Nootropic compounds can help with sexual function.
For example, all nootropics that help with depression or sleep problems will indirectly improve your libido, as these are important factors for good sexual health. These are therefore some kind of positive “side” effects, but not the main function sought in these products.
Other nootropics, which act on GABA receptors for example, such as Phenibut, can help to relax, disinhibit and improve sexual desire and libido. They allow you to “decompress” and break down certain barriers, a bit like alcohol, but without the negative effects.
Finally, there is a notropic that is particularly effective for libido and erectile dysfunction : Sulbutiamine, which is a synthetic form of vitamin B1. Sulbutiamine has interesting effects on libido, as it increases the levels of thiamine and thiamine pyrophosphate in the brain much more than thiamine itself.
Thiamine, or vitamin B1 helps in balancing sex hormones in the body which can impact the erection positively and boosts sexual desire by improving mood. Sulbutiamine also helps to improve the brain’s ability to send signals through the nervous system to your penis regarding an erection. So it’s a very good nootropic to use against erectile dysfunction.

2. Adaptogenic plants and libido
Adaptogenic plants can be really useful to help with libido or erection problems. Some of them will most likely get your morning woods back, you just need to find out which one !
According to holistic nutritionist Priscilla Soler, “Adaptogens are the queens of herbal medicines for restoring health, vitality, immunity, resistance and longevity“. Their name says it all : they adapt. They don’t serve a single purpose, but rather identify what your body needs and adapt to it to restore a balance.
Adaptogenic plants therefore allow the body to find points of anchorage and balance, especially in terms of hormones and hormone levels. This is why they help regulate libido and sexual desire. They are therefore also very useful for sportsmen and women, especially those who are looking to improve their muscle mass or performance.
Here are the best adaptogenic plants for libido:
- Ashwagandha : Ashwagandha helps to increase testosterone levels. And although not everyone is affected in the same way, there has been an improvement of up to 15% in normal testosterone levels. This is why this plant can largely help the men deficient in testosterone to increase their libido and their sexual performances.
- Shilajit : Shilajit stimulates libido and sexual performance. How ? Because fulvic acid, the main component of Shilajit (our Shilajit contains 50% acid fulvic) regulates the abnormal secretion of thyroid hormone through its ability to regulate cyclic nucleotides at the cellular level. This will therefore stimulate the secretion of androgenic hormones, such as testosterone, and thus facilitate libido, erection and muscle building. Shilajit also stimulates blood circulation, wich can improve erections.
- Tribulus Terrestris : Tribulus acts by stimulating vasodilatation and the natural production of testosterone, the main male sex hormone. Its main active compound is saponin. It induces the production of testosterone. Tribulus increases libido, via a transient increase in testosterone levels, helps erection due to the vasodilating action of protodioscin and increases fertility . It stimulates sperm production (spermatogenesis) in men. For women, it promotes the improvement of ovulation. These effects contribute to fertility.
