It's nearly Valentine's Day, and love is in the air! It's easy to get swept up in all the red hearts and Cupids, but Valentine's Day can remind us of more than just candy and cards. Digging through to the deeper meaning, Valentine's Day presents a welcome opportunity to deepen and strengthen your relationship with your partner.


Intimacy is at the core of a strong relationship. If one partner is having difficulties with intimacy, it can bring an imbalance to the relationship and lead to stress, arguments, and more. But did you know that problems relating to intimacy are often rooted in your physiology? Underlying issues like hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, or chronic inflammation can actually be the source of these problems. It's not a matter of attraction or interest; instead, it all comes back to health.


If you are concerned about problems with intimacy, Rejuvé can help you maintain a healthy, loving relationship. Dr. Tang can perform a comprehensive evaluation, including blood tests for hormone and vitamin deficiencies, that can help identify potential trouble spots. Rejuvé offers solutions including bioidentical hormones and quality supplements that can help your body regain balance.


Another option that helps many patients concerned with intimacy are supplements that are designed to strengthen the libido. Below, we discuss two formulas -- one specially designed for women, the other for men -- that have helped patients revitalize their relationships.

The Biology of Desire
One of the hormones that plays a key role in intimacy is oxytocin, which is sometimes called names like the "love hormone" or the "happy hormone." Oxytocin can help increase levels of desire and arousal. It's essentially a bonding hormone, and its release enhances feelings of closeness. For example, new mothers release oxytocin when they breastfeed their infants, but also when they hear them cry. Though the situation that stimulates the response is different, the result is the same -- a release of oxytocin, and feelings of attachment and closeness. 
Oxytocin has a complex relationship with other hormones in your body, making it important  to perform comprehensive hormone testing to understand how it fits in to your physiology. Estrogen, thyroid hormones, and dopamine all stimulate the production of oxytocin, but these decrease with age, leading to a decrease in oxytocin. Oxytocin levels can also be affected by stress, menopause, depression, and many diseases including hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, and Parkinson's disease. Oxytocin interacts with both testosterone and estrogen, which is yet another reason why it is implicated in intimacy -- both in helping forge relationships, but also, when oxytocin levels wane, why closeness may be more difficult. Particularly for those considering hormone replacement, correctly balancing these with oxytocin is key.
New research is showing that oxytocin deficiency is related to a number of chronic health problems, and oxytocin therapy is being tested as a treatment for health issues from headaches to sexual dysfunction. Balancing oxytocin levels with progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, and thyroid hormones can help support your personal health and your relationship health.

A Natural Supplement for Women

The supplement includes a complex blend of nutraceutical and herbal ingredients, including wild yam, damiana, standardized tribulis, epimedium (h. goat weed), red clover, urtica dioca, Korean ginseng, deer antler, gingko biloba, DIM, and DHEA. These naturally and safely enhance natural testosterone production, optimization of testosterone and estrogen metabolism, an increased blood flow, and adrenal support.

  Supporting Men's Sexual Health


If women's sexuality is described as complex, men's sexuality is almost always characterized as simple. That's why it can be especially disheartening if you feel that your sexual desire and function are not where you want them to be. 


Rather than turning to those "little blue pills," Rejuvé recommends the natural supplement LibidoStim-M. This supplement includes unique ingredients that help support men's health. 


A key ingredient in LibidoStim-M is Tongkat ali (Eurycoma longifolia), which helps maintain normal testosterone levels, helps boost mood and energy, and is important for supporting sexual desire and fertility (in terms of sperm concentration and motility). Tongkat ali works by affecting the luteinizing hormone. This ingredient is especially effective because it is highly specific as to which hormone derivatives it affects: It works to increase testosterone, but not 5a-dihydrotestosterone, which could cause conversion to estrogen. Tongkat ali also helps to increase free testosterone (FT) over bound testosterone (BT). BT is not bioavailable and in high levels may be associated with prostate cancer.

LibidoStim-M is also formulated with other high-grade herbal and nutraceutical ingredients, including epimedium sagittatum (H. Goat Weed), DIM, chrysin, ginkgo biloba, and muira puama. It's a proven, natural way for men to regain their sexual performance and desire.
