Even worthy efforts to eat a whole-foods diet can leave us short of certain nutrients, and nutrient deficiencies can contribute to a variety of health issues, including decreased libido. Supplementing with a good multivitamin, vitamin D, and fish oil can be helpful for everyone, while adding zinc, B vitamins, flavonoids, and certain herbs to your routine can support a healthy libido.

Zinc and B vitamin supplements are generally safe and can benefit most people, but your healthcare practitioner can test blood, urine, or saliva to ascertain the best approach for you. Herbs such as ashwagandha, shatavari, Tribulus, and shilajit can be useful, but because many herbs work collaboratively or can interact with other medications, it’s highly recommended to partner with a licensed herbalist to receive a personalized selection.
