Ayurveda is one of the most ancient and revered forms of medicine. Its history can be traced back over 5,000 years to the Indian and Himalayan regions of Asia. This form of traditional medicine emphasizes the importance of the balance of mind and body within an individual as well as balance and synergy with the environment. This balance can be obtained through herbal treatments, massage, meditation, healthy diet, and exercise.
Orgen Nutraceuticals supports this natural approach to healing the body and maintaining a healthy state by offering a line of supplements containing pure and potent herbal extracts that address a variety of health concerns.
A botanical is a plant or plant part valued for its medicinal or therapeutic properties, flavour, and/or scent.
Herbs are a subset of botanicals that includes vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace elements in natural balance. Products made from botanicals that are used to maintain or improve health may be called herbal products.
Herbal therapy is the practice of healing using naturally growing and minimally processed herbs, plants, and minerals.
Herbal products are made from natural botanicals and are safe for most people to consume.

Remember to always read any cautions, warnings, or contraindications that are written on the product's packaging prior to use.

Menopause is the term used to describe the end of a woman's reproductive years. It occurs after a woman has gone a full year without menstruating. The average age that a woman experiences menopause is 51.
The term "libido" is used to refer to a person's desire or drive for sexual activity.
Many men notice their libidos begin to decline in their mid 50’s to early 60’s. During this time men may notice a change in their erections- mainly the length of time required to reach an erection, the amount of
stimulation required to reach an erection, and finally the length of time the erection can be maintained. These physical changes can cause plenty of psychological distress, which can make libido decrease even
Women's libidos usually start to decrease at the onset of menopause. During menopause the ovaries will no longer release eggs, so the estrogen that is produced during that process will not be released. The overall decline in estrogen production is a major contributing factor in decreased libido. Other symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, fatigue, stress, and anxiety will further hinder a woman’s sexual appetite during this period in her life.
Yes! Natural herbs such as Damiana, Tongkat Ali, Velvet Bean, Maca, and Muira Puama have been used for centuries to increase libido and stimulate sexual desire. These ancient remedies are all used in our sexual health supplements, Pure Plaisir and Feminin Boost.
In addition to natural supplements, changing your lifestyle to eliminate unhealthy habits can also help. Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, drug use, and unhealthy eating habits can all play a role in deteriorating your libido. Getting rid of these habits will not only improve your libido, but also improve your general health and well-being.
