The Best Snacks for Sexual Wellness
A peruvian herb used to restore hormonal imbalance and aid fertility, allowing you to feel less stress, and tap into your sexual energy. Mix a scoop of maca powder into your smoothies or grab a You Again Maca Cookie to satisfy your sweet tooth.
This is an Indian super herb, similar to Maca, used to increase sex drive, bolster the immune system, balance female hormones, and dampen the effects of PMS. Cliché in the best way, Phasey Sex Chocolate is a favorite.
Stress can interrupt signals between the brain and body leading to issues like erectile dysfunction. Adaptogenic herbs reduce and regulate stress by helping the body adapt to it. For a beverage boost, Emily recommends Heywell.
An upset stomach can be a major mood killer and an obstacle to feeling sexy. Eat foods that support your digestive health and keep you playtime ready — BelliWelli Bars are perfect for a grab-and-go fix.
