Herbs & Foods For Men’s Health

There are a number of evidence-based herbs and foods which have been shown to support various aspects of male sexual function and reproductive health.

Hormonal Healing

When it comes to addressing the likes of erectile dysfunction, this is an area where I believe herbal medicine and evidence-based nutrition to be significantly superior to western-style approaches to treating the underlying pathophysiological disease processes which drive these health problems in the first place.

Again this is another area where herbal medicine is significantly superior to western medications and you can utilize many different herbs/foods in a single herbal remedy to address multiple different causes of [sexual dysfunction simultaneously

Cordyceps Sinensis is a fungal parasite on the larvae of Lepidoptera and has a long traditional history of being recommended as a tonic to enhance sexual function and improve reproductive health.


Cordyceps is a great choice of medicinal mushroom for sexual dysfunction conditions which are caused due to low energy and chronic fatigue. Cordyceps can help to enhance ATP production and animal studies have also found that cordyceps can stimulate testosterone biosynthesis.
