Ok, one more post today about articles that caught my eye in the news. This site here has become so vast that anytime I browse through diet and fitness topics in the headlines, there always seems to be a way to circle it back to things we discuss on here. We love being such an exhaustive resource, and hope our readers enjoy the content!
Anyway, I came across this article on GuyCounseling.com and it caught my eye because I’ve been reading up on the testosterone boosters we review on here as a means to increase your sex drive. It turns out there are other ways to give your libido a boost – Matcha green tea!
How Matcha Green Tea Boosts Your Sex Drive
Green tea is known to promote good health, boost your immune system, help you lose weight, and overall provide antioxidants to the body. But little did I know that it also can be a great aphrodisiac! However, not all green teas are equal in this regard, and Matcha green tea is the clear winner when it comes to drinking these herbs for their libido-increasing properties.
What Makes Matcha Different
This particular type of tea differs from other green tea in the way that the leaves are cultivated. As opposed to normal green tea from Camellia Sinensis, the tea bushes used to make Matcha are not exposed to the elements in the same way. Instead, they are covered by special cloths that help protect them from the sun, which is what gives its distinct (and delicious!) flavor.
After harvesting the leaves, they are then subjected to steam to ward off fermentation. They are then put into cold storage so that they can age, which further bolsters its unique taste. Because of all this differentiation in the cultivation process, it has a higher caffeine content than normal green tea, rivaling that of coffee.
What Makes Matcha an Aphrodisiac
The reason that this particular tea is great for sex drive is that of the vasodilation content. This is a natural process that relaxes the walls of the blood vessels, enlarging their diameter and improving circulation and reducing blood pressure. As you probably know, the sex organs are highly susceptible (and responsive) to increased blood flow. When circulation improves, men can experience longer-lasting and harder erections! As for women, it can also help balance estrogen levels for women, particularly helpful for women in menopause, and increase sexual interest.
Hey, I’m all for anything that will help me spice up my sex life! I’d already been following the advice we give on this site and drinking a lot of green tea because of the health benefits, but maybe now it is time for me to switch over to Matcha to get those same benefits and give my libido a little kick, too! Couple that with the Prime Male testosterone booster (review here) I’m already taking, and things are looking good in the bedroom for me!
It is said that the best time to drink this is about a half hour before you become intimate, so why not introduce a little bit of a tea ceremony with your partner later on tonight?
