(NaturalNews) For many women, it may be hard to believe a man would ever lose his interest in sex. In fact, if a man does lose his libido, it is a sign that something is wrong. Barring physical illness, injury, or prescription medications, the primary reasons a man may no longer be interested in sex are clinical depression and stress. Listed below are three ways for a man to regain his libido.

Diet is crucial for male sexual health

Many men eat a terrible diet of junk and fast foods. This may be due to laziness, but often it is due to a lack of time or a lack of cooking skills. With the advent of the Internet, there are many cooking videos and blogs geared to men. Many body builders and fitness experts show men how easy and fast it is to prepare nutritionally balanced and delicious meals themselves.

A nutritious diet contains a healthy balance of lean proteins, healthy fats, and simple carbohydrates. Lean proteins can come from animal sources like grass fed meats, free range eggs, and raw dairy products. They can also come from vegan sources such as beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Healthy fats include coconuts and coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, nuts, raw butter, and small amounts of animal fat. The best sources of carbohydrates are a variety of vegetables and fruits. Whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa may be included for extra calories.

Exercise helps release male sex hormones

Exercise improves blood circulation to the entire body, delivers nutrients where they are needed, and releases endorphins. Endorphins are brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. They reduce the brain's perception of pain, enhance the body's immune response, regulate the appetite, elevate the mood, and release sex hormones.

Fitness experts recommend working out six days a week for an hour each day. This may be difficult for beginning athletes, so it is important to work up to this level of activity. Consistency is key. Once a workout seems easy, it is time to add more intensity to it.

Herbs can help increase male libido

The June 2008 issue of Psychiatry included an article called "Sexual Desire Disorders" by Keith A. Montgomery, MD. The author stated that sexual dysfunction often goes unreported because physicians are uncomfortable asking questions about patients' sexual health.

Two herbs were mentioned specifically in this article to help men increase their libido. These herbs were yohimbe and ginseng.

The Journal of Urology (1998) describes yohimbe as a "reasonable therapeutic option for erectile dysfunction." Yohimbe has been clinically proven to be more effective than a placebo in correcting erectile dysfunction in men.

Ginseng has been heralded as a male aphrodisiac since the Shen dynasty in ancient China. In 2008, a team of researchers sought to find definitive conclusions regarding Korean red ginseng as an herbal aid for erectile dysfunction and male sexual libido.

The researchers threw out poorly performed clinical studies, and reviewed only placebo-controlled, randomized, cross-matched, and where possible, double-blind studies. Of these, the researchers concluded that red ginseng did have a positive effect on male sexual desire and function. The researchers were hesitant to recommend ginseng wholeheartedly simply because the number of participants in the studies was low.
