Can Ginkgo Biloba Spice Up Our Love Life?

Jan. 27, 2016
Dear Cathy:
My husband of 10 years and I are both in our middle 50s and we are always seeking new things to spice up our love life. Since the herb, Ginkgo Biloba, is a blood thinner that helps with circulation, can it help our relationship in the love making department?  Spicing Up Love Life, Georgia.

Dear Spicing Up Love Life:

Yes it can, however, like Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba is a blood thinner, which means you can’t mix it with other medications and even be careful mixing it with vitamin supplements and other herbs. 

If you ever have a health emergency, you need to make sure the doctor know you are on this blood thinner so that they can treat you accordingly -- otherwise you can bleed out from a wound.

So if you are taking any kind of medication, either over-the-counter or prescribed, you want to skip using this herb. Sixty-percent of people over age 65 are on at least 5 medications so again if you are on any medications, you want to skip this herb. 

If you are healthy overall, then it can be a good herb to take. It especially helps with ED in men since many men today suffer from ED. Since this herb is good for circulation, it will help your hair grow, with memory issues, and a whole array of other issues.

You don’t have to take it every day for it to be effective so think about taking the herb every 3 or 4 days and it still should be able to help you spice up your love life.
