The truth is that supplements in the form of herbs have been helping men last longer in bed for thousands of years. Chinese medicine has been around for at least 5,000 years.
The bottom line is that there are plenty of supplements for lasting longer in bed.
Mother earth has given us plenty of ways to naturally solve all kinds of ailments in our bodies, but westernized science and allopathic medicine has totally missed the boat – on purpose.
Most beneficial herbs are EXTREMELY cheap compared to drugs, and so the westernized medical establishment cannot make any money off of them.
Here’s where some guys will say, “but Mike, aren’t natural supplements pills too? What makes them different than drugs?”
The answer is simple when you answer the question, “where does the pill come from?”
Prescription drugs, like Viagra, are formulated inside a lab by chemists in white coats. They create compounds from thin air, test it on some rats, and after it’s successful, they sell it directly to you. Gross. No wonder they have so many side effects.
Natural supplements, however, are just that…herbs! If you’re scared of taking herbal supplements, here’s what you should do.
Go to Whole Foods or another natural market, go to the produce section, and buy these foods and herbs. They’re available for you, right there, all you have to do is reach out and grab it.
The problem with this approach is that it takes so much dang herbs to have the desired effects, there’s no way you’ll be able to get the recommended dose in one sitting. Eating handfuls of herbs is gross, and there’s no way you’ll be able to stomach it.
This is where supplements come into play. They make it easy for you to get all the nutritional benefits of eating herbs and vegetables – without all of the eating.
Just like food though, you want to make sure you buy the top-shelf products. Keep in mind that you should buy all supplements from a reliable source. There have been cases where contaminants have gotten into the herbal supplements because the cheaper companies tried to cut corners in order to make more money.
So what are the best supplements for lasting longer in bed? Which ones are known to work? First, understand that every guy is different. Everybody has a body that is a chemical and hormone making machine – an amazing, chemical making factory. The point is that what works for one guy may not work for another.
The best way to find the right supplements is to try these different herbs and see which ones work the best for you. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships, health, and fitness all affect which supplements will work well for you. It’s impossible for me to tell you exactly what supplements work, but I can point you in the right direction.
I’ve tried a lot of supplements, and have seen guys fall trap to snake oil salesmen, and now I’d like to share my knowledge with you so you can last longer.
There’s a ton of supplements you COULD try to last longer, but a lot of them are crap. Here is a list of the most highly effective supplements:
5-HTP supplements work by increasing the serotonin levels in the body, which elevates a person’s mood. Not only that, but it also helps you to sleep better. When you combine feeling better, with better sleep, what you get is one happy person! When a happy guy is well-rested and alert, guess what happens to his sex life? It gets much better! And you’ll last longer.
5-HTP is not found in any of our food. Your body creates 5-HTP from tryptophan, which is found in food, like tofu, cheese, lamb, fish, and of course….turkey. Tryptophan is notorious for being the chemical responsible for the post-Thanksgiving nap.
If you consume a lot of tryptophan, along with lots of sweets and meats, you will get sleepy…just like after Thanksgiving.
However, if you take 5-HTP as a supplement only, it will trigger tryptophan production in your body, which is much different than eating turkey. When your body creates tryptophan, you’ll relax but won’t get sleepy, which is great for lasting longer.
Tryptophan isn’t the chemical that makes you relax. Tryptophan is processed and then it creates serotonin from the 5-HTP. Serotonin is what we want because a lot of guys’ premature ejaculation comes from low serotonin.
Low serotonin is can be responsible for depression. This is why gross SSRI’s can be prescribed for PE (don’t do it).
5-HTP can treat a lot of problems for us humans who are suffering from low serotonin levels. These include depression, fibromyalgia, insomnia, migraines, and other headaches, obesity, and more. If you have any of these, 5-HTP is a great supplement to add to your stack.
As a supplement, 5-HTP is made from the seeds of an African plant called Griffonia simplicifolia. Just like I discussed earlier, you could sit around and eat this plant all day, but nobody’s got time for that.
Gingko Biloba is very popular in traditional Chinese medicine. It is used for a wide range of conditions, including erectile dysfunction. Gingko also seems to help with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, menopause, and vertigo. It has been shown to ease leg pain caused by clogged arteries, relieve PMS symptoms, and also mood changes. And it has been proven to increase energy in studies where they were treating multiple sclerosis, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
Ginkgo Biloba works by increasing blood flow throughout the body, and at the same time, protecting blood vessels from lesions which may result in the slowing down of blood circulation. It also acts as an antioxidant which can help you to keep your erection for a longer period of time.
It’s also used for memory and sharper thinking, although studies have only shown a modest boost in memory enhancement.
Yohimbe comes from the bark of the West African evergreen and is also very popular in Chinese medicine. It is used for sexual dysfunction and acts as a powerful aphrodisiac, thereby improving sexual desire. It too increases blood flow to the genitals of both men and women.
The King of Minerals – zinc will help you last longer no matter what your health is like.
If you go to the gas station and check out a lot of the “herbal male enhancement” pills (which are all filled with sawdust, by the way), all of them have zinc in the ingredients, and for good reason.
You can get zinc naturally by eating aphrodisiac foods like oysters and red meat, but supplements provide a bigger dose in an easy package.
Zinc is also great for shooting bigger loads. When I was in the porn industry, zinc was my secret weapon for money shots. Sometimes I’d be having a lot of sex and wasn’t able to store up a lot of cum, so I’d just take zinc.
Pro tip about zinc, make sure you choose a zinc supplement that also has copper in it. Taking zinc makes your body use your copper to balance it out, so the more zinc you take, the more copper you need. Avoid copper deficiency by taking it with your zinc.
Other than that, zinc is an extremely safe supplement to take, and I suggest all men take it. It’ll help you in bed, and has also been shown to increase testosterone. And who doesn’t need a little more testosterone?
Tongkat Ali is also known as Eurycoma longifolia jack, or the Malaysian ginseng. It comes from the Malaysian rain forests. It too is very popular to help you to last longer in bed.
What it does is it stimulates the libido, increases semen quality, and even helps with muscle growth. Most of these effects are because it helps increase testosterone. When you increase testosterone, good things happen!
It also supports normal hormone levels in males.
Be careful when you purchase tongkat ali. The marketplace for it is full of retailers who give counterfeit formulas. Also, it was found by the Malaysian Drug Control Authority in 2006 that 100 products tested containing tongkat ali had 26% of them contaminated with very high levels of mercury.
The bottom line is that you should only purchase tongkat ali from reliable, quality merchants.
Fenugreek is a great herb if you want to naturally increase testosterone and your libido.
This is a Mediterranean herb that is used in many Indian dishes. It has been used to treat men’s sexual and prostate health.
In many studies, it has been known to significantly improve the natural testosterone levels in men, and also improve libido. It increases testosterone because it contains phytochemicals called saponins and sapogenins, which are credited with raising testosterone levels and improving libido.
There are several health benefits of this herb, especially for men noticing the negative effects of aging on their sex life. Other benefits are that it can help with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stabilizing metabolism, relieving heartburn and indigestion.
Most Indian grocery stores carry Fenugreek, but you might find it easier to take it orally as a supplement.
Herbs for High Levels of Nitric Oxide
An erection would not be possible if it were not for nitric oxide. Nitric oxide relaxes the blood vessels and allows them to widen so that more blood can come into the penis and give you a hard erection.
Nitric oxide declines as we age, and that is why herbs are a great way to go to help. The three herbs that are best known to increase nitric oxide in the body are Ginseng, Cnidium, and Horny Goat Weed.
Ginseng and Horny Goat Weed also raise levels of testosterone while Cnidium and Ginseng help to increase the blood flow to the genitals.
These are the best herbs, but if you want to really increase your nitric oxide, you’re gonna need this vegetable…
Beets – The King of NO
Hands down, the best supplement for increasing nitric oxide is the beet. Ask any endurance cyclist or cross country runner, all of the professionals drink beet juice like it’s water.
The reason why is that when it comes to the percentage of nitrates, nothing beats the beet. Beets not only have the most nitrates out of any vegetable, but they also have extremely high bioavailability, making this the best way to get nitric oxide in your body.
Beet juice is great for making you last longer because the nitrates will improve your blood flow everywhere. If athletes can take it and run more miles, you’ll be able to take it and have more sex, right?
My favorite way to get nitric oxide from beets is juicing. Eating beets takes too much time (and chewing), and the supplements don’t seem to work as well.
If you don’t juice vegetables, I highly recommend you start, right now.

Supplements for lasting longer in bed are great to take if you buy them from reputable distributors, but they are not a replacement for common sense and other factors. If you are overweight, losing weight should be one of your primary goals. Weight loss naturally raises testosterone levels too, as does not drinking alcohol.
P.S. Diet, supplements, and exercise are just one piece of the puzzle (your body).
It doesn’t matter how fit and healthy you are if your brain is not playing along. I know bodybuilders and fitness models who could replace Arnold in “Conan” who still deal with premature ejaculation.
Getting a strong erection, and keeping it up for long sex sessions without blowing your load, requires massive cooperation between your mind and body.
The relationship between your mind and body is incredibly complicated, and instead of giving you a bunch of psychology books to understand how it works, I’ve compiled all of the best tips for lasting longer into one place – The Best She Ever Had Online Academy.
