Product Overview


Sexual health and Reproductive health is a very important component of overall health both physically and mentally.  Sexual and Reproductive health is linked to a healthy circulatory system (blood vessels), brain and nervous system, hormone system (endocrine glands), musculo-skeletal system and immune system.  Sexual desire is governed by multiple factors in women and men and is influenced by a person’s physical health (e.g. level of fitness, medical disorders, pain, etc.), psycho-emotional factors (e.g. upbringing, education, belief systems, mindset, mood, stress level, personal relationships and environmental factors), as well as hormones (e.g. testosterone, oestrogen, oxytocin, PEA and dopamine levels) and genetic factors.  Diet, nutritional deficiencies and exposure to toxic substances can also play a role.  Sugar diabetes, smoking, hardening of the arteries, pharmaceutical medication, chemotherapy, alcohol, street drugs (e.g. heroin, tik, cannabis, cocaine, etc) and infections like thrush (Candida), STI’s (sexually transmitted infections, HIV, AIDS) and influenza virus infections (amongst others) can all play a role affecting libido and sexual and reproductive health.  If a woman is experiencing sexual problems, or a decreased libido, or difficulty in falling pregnant (infertility), it is of utmost importance that she has a full medical check-up, including blood tests and if necessary psycho-emotional support, relationship counselling (involving both partners) and when appropriate, sex education.
