MACA ROOT TO BALANCE HORMONES AND REGULATE FERTILITY
Kourtney’s guide to her ‘favorite herbs for when we need a little kick in the pants’ starts with maca root, which, according to Poosh, ‘acts as an ovarian tonic, balances hormone levels and helps to regulate fertility’.
The article recommends putting the root in a smoothie or coffee because ‘the powder has a somewhat sweet, caramelly flavor’.
While the powder form is the most popular, different types of maca in yellow, black and red colors also come in capsule, pull, liquor and extract forms.
HORNY GOAT WEED TO TACKLE ERECTILE DISFUNCTION
In the article Kardashian dubbed epimedium extract, ‘also lovingly known as, ehem, horny goat weed,’ the ‘tried and true option’ for enhancing sexy time
Let’s not forget epimedium extract, which Kourtney’s blog notes is ‘also lovingly known as horny goat weed’.
It’s apparently a ‘classic in the great book of sexuality-enhancing herbs’ and was originally used in traditional Chinese medicine for managing erectile dysfunction.
If you haven’t heard of it before the Kardashian is here to tell you that this ‘tried and true option’ most commonly comes in supplement form and will optimize blood flow.
‘We need optimal blood flow to feel that sensitivity that causes us to react, contract, and reach our own version of climax,’ the article read.
The extract can also be purchased as a powder or tea.
RED CLOVER TO BOOST SEXUAL DESIRE
On her site the 42-year-old Kardashian dubbed red clover ‘the powerful little botanical’ that ‘can help with sexual desire (and with) getting and staying turned on’.
The hormone-balancing herb is dark-pink-looking flower most often steeped in tea and ‘even regulates collagen synthesis, as a bonus’.
‘Menopausal women suffering from dryness due to a major dip in estrogen’ can especially benefit from red clover.

TRIBULUS TO INCREASE PLEASURE
Tribulus – the ‘spiny plant with cute little flowers’ – was a Kardashian favorite for ‘making sexy time not only more appealing but even more pleasurable’.
The plant is an aphrodisiac sold as a supplement and its powers include ‘negating some of those mood-killing effects’ of taking oral contraceptives.
It also boosts testosterone but ladies are not to shy away. Poosh states that ‘testosterone is not limited to males; it has an important role in females as well, sexual desire being one of them’.
TONGKAT ALI TO HELP MEN WITH THEIR SEX DRIVE
The list went on to recommend tongkat ali for boosting ‘both sex drive and desire, notably in men but also in women suffering from low androgen levels’.
The herb comes from a shrubby tree native to Southeast Asia and is sold in capsule, elixir and powder form.
It’s also known to boost testosterone levels, ‘aka our slightly more aggressively sexual hormone’.
Yes, testosterone is the hormone is ‘responsible for the shift at puberty causing breakouts and pubic hair’ but it can also ‘boost both sex drive in desire, notably in men but also in women’.
PINE POLLEN FOR IMPROVED STAMINA AND ENDURANCE
Kardashian rounded out the list with pine pollen, ‘which is known for increasing libido and stamina and is great for regular endurance training’.
The article said the prickly herb ‘easy to find online or harvest in nature if you happen to live near many pine trees’.

At the end of the piece Kardashian cheekily added: ‘Some of our favorite endurance training just happens to be in the bedroom.’
The closing line to the article Kardashian shared on her Instagram story last night was seemingly timed perfectly with the barely-there bikini she flaunted just hours earlier as she posed for a series of mirror selfies while on vacation with her boyfriend.
The posts came the same day Barker, 45, boarded his first flight since surviving a deadly plane crash in 2008.
Barker posted a photo of himself holding his reality star girlfriend in front of Kylie Jenner’s jet after safely touching down.
‘With you anything is possible,’ he captioned the photo.
Reacting to the Instagram post Kourtney sweetly wrote in the comments section of the photo: ‘Anything and everything with you (heart emoji).’
A slew of other celebs showed their support for the couple in the comments section, with Khloe Kardashian chiming in: ‘Love conquers ALL.’
Kim Kardashian remarked: ‘THE CUTEST EVER.’
The couple have since been spotted kissing and splashing around a pool together at Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Cabo San Lucas.
