Men don’t like to talk about their loss of libido, it is a cultural tendency for men to mask their fears of illness out of discomfort or embarrassment. “When men lose interest in sex it scares them more than women — their masculinity is so linked to their sexuality that it is very threatening,” says Esther Perel, an author of Mating in Captivity.
It’s normal for men to become aware of a slow decrease in libido (sex drive) with age. The level of this decline varies, and most men continue to have at least some amount of sexual interest well into their 60s – 70s.
Loss of libido in men or withdrawn sexual desire is one of the biggest stresses in a marriage life – more than any other sexual dysfunction. Loss of libido also makes men unhappy about the rest of their lives.
Loss of sex drive is related to an underlying circumstance.
Stress and anxiety from the tension of daily life, relationship or family problems, depression, and mental disorders are the strongest factors that can affect sexual desire. Stress leads to a surge in adrenaline and cortisol, which can disrupt your body’s sex hormone levels.

Diseases such as diabetes; conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol; and HIV drugs, some hair-loss remedies, and other medications can negatively affect sexual desire.
Low testosterone levels usually suggest low sexual desire. Testosterone begins to drop 2 to 3 percent per year starting at age 30. Thirty-four percent of men have low testosterone by age 50. Other hormones can play a role, too, such as low levels of thyroid hormone or, rarely, high levels of prolactin, a hormone produced in a gland at the base of the brain.
Loss of libido is not something you have to live with. There is a great deal you can do to reclaim your sex drive and your happy attitude on life.
Specific lifestyle changes can help boost libido.
Taking off excess weight is very important.
Managing stress and relaxation practices are a must. Meditations will help you to relax and will teach your brain to stop it constant chat.
Certain foods – such as antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables or foods high in vitamin B – may help boost sexual stamina by increasing blood circulation.
Take minerals and vitamins, to help your body have a good stamina, high energy levels and healthy sex drive.
Zinc, is the ultimate sex mineral. To increase your testosterone, add zinc to your diet. Zinc blocks the enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen. A deficiency of zinc can result in a low sperm count and a weak sex drive.
Magnesium makes it more difficult for testosterone to latch onto proteins in the body. As a result, testosterone is distributed in the blood, helping to kick up your sex drive.
Vitamin B6 – nutrient that increases male hormone production.
Potassium – helps regulate a woman’s thyroid gland and helps increase libido in both men and women.
Vitamins B6 and B5. These help balance hormone levels and fight stress, two things that are crucial to a healthy libido.
Siberian Ginseng is a herbal remedy and one of the best adaptogenic agents that known to stimulate the immune system, increase energy and reduce fatigue, has anti-stress capabilities and raises blood-oxygen levels, increases cortisone levels and anti-inflammatory response, and it promotes improved cognitive and physical performance in human studies. All these properties are very much needed for good libido.
