Hormones control just about every function of the human body. From sleep, to hunger, to mood, and yes, your sex drive. Your libido, or desire to get frisky, is heavily driven by progesterone, estrogen and in women, a small amount of testosterone. When these hormones are balanced and working in unison, your libido is firing, and your sex life is satisfying and enjoyable. When an imbalance occurs, you may notice a diminished sex drive, vaginal dryness and even pain with sex. 

While some women may not think a decreased desire for sex is a big deal, it is. It signals a deeper issue. Not wanting sex or feeling intimacy is a symptom of something else going on. Hormonal imbalances like estrogen dominance, low progesterone and PCOS can all cause your libido to take a hike. (2)

Unfortunately, many doctors have resorted to birth control to “balance” hormones and correct any symptoms resulting from imbalanced hormones. However, the opposite is true. In fact, the hormones in birth control pills suppress our body’s production of estrogen and progesterone. They flood our bodies with artificial forms of estrogen and progesterone, shutting off our own production, preventing ovulation, thinning the uterine lining, which all leads to imbalance issues such as estrogen dominance. (3)

The underlying answer to balanced hormones is through proper diet, exercise, stress management and supplementation. Adopt a diet free of added sugars, gluten, and dairy. These add stress to the gut microbiome, as well as the detoxification and elimination pathways of the body. Instead, add plenty of vegetables, quality proteins and healthy fats. If your diet is low in fat, your hormones may be suffering as a result. Adding in the right kinds of fats – omega 3’s and omega 6’s- make your hormones happy. Try incorporating fats from sources like nuts, seeds, fish, avocado, olives, and coconut. Fats help reduce inflammation which plays a role in fostering a healthy sex drive. 

In addition, certain adaptogens have been shown to boost libido naturally. Stress, energy levels, and exercise can all impact your desire for sex. One such herb, maca root, has been shown to help boost sexual desire. It’s adaptogen effects also include improving mood and increasing overall vitality. It’s ability to regulate cortisol and support adrenal function also fosters a healthy libido. (1)

This was a huge reason why we decided to include maca root in our hormone balancing supplement Baseline+.

Baseline+ was designed to support and regulate healthy female hormones. With ingredients to promote progesterone production, regulate and metabolism estrogen, and replenish vitamins and minerals, Baseline+ not only helps balance hormones, but it gives back when hormonal imbalances threaten to take away. One of those being our innate sexual desire and ability for intimacy. Baseline+ includes 150mg of maca root per serving. Studies have shown 150 -300mg per day of maca root to be effective in boosting libido.
