For a Yummier Sex Life and on Tumeric, see a clip of their thoughts:

Ashwagandha and Shatavri are champs here as they build up your core energy to the point that you can choose what happens with your inner power: In and up as spiritual power, stabilized in body/mind as a deep systemic restorative, or down and out as sexual power! One Energy, three directions- your choice!”

Turmeric is the best herb I know to simultaneously build blood, clean blood and move blood. Exercise is about getting your body moving, and Turmeric is a bit like exercise in a capsule.”
