Tackweed (Tribulus terrestris)
Tackweed is an ideal herb for every man, but it is especially important for sportsmen – it can stimulate muscle tissue growth and the burning of fats. It was also long believed that it can increase testosterone levels in men – by up to 30 percent – but unfortunately recent research has disproved that. However, it is a great herb for body cleansing and boosting immunity and libido.
Great yellow gentian (Gentiana lutea)
The great yellow gentian transfers sexual energy from the erotic to the emotional sphere. It helps against premature ejaculation and genital disorders that create ulcers (such as herpes).
Marjoram (Origanum majorana)
Marjoram is a harmonizing herb for men. It calms the mind and helps ‘keep it together.’ It also harmonizes the body’s energies. There is no better remedy for a broken heart than marjoram. Some cultures believe that marjoram mitigates both physical and psychical suffering during heartbreak and brings men happiness.
Magnolia-vine (Schizandra chinensis)
Magnolia-vine eliminates fatigue and is a great food supplement for hard-working men. It lifts the spirits and helps fight against depression. Interestingly enough, it also increases the sharpness of night vision, regenerates the liver and slows down the development of atherosclerosis.
Roman wormwood (Artemisia pontica)
Apart from being used to make absinthe and vermouth (because of this it is sometimes called ‘little absinthe’), it is also a great detoxifier and tonic for the body. It revitalizes one’s sexual energy, clears the blood, the liver, gallbladder and basically the whole digestive tract. It stimulates the flow of lymph throughout the body. Its better-known counterpart, absinthe wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), has very similar effects.
