Is your libido a bit fishy?

I've been reading lately about something I'm doing right for my libido. Didn't even know it. Well, I knew these things had a lot of health benefits, but didn't realize they may be playing a big role in the slow increase of my va-va-voom this past year.

Every single night I take one fish oil capsule (1000 mg), and one Vitamin E capsule (400 I.U.). I actually have the whole family on these, as a part of my kids' healing journeys.

I couldn't help but notice a title like, "The Orgasmic Diet" by Marrena Lindberg. Still have not read it, but one of the big pushes within its pages is fish oil. The oil contains a dopamine, which is a great encouragement for the Not-Tonight-Dear's.

And why the Vitamin E? It is very helpful for vaginal dryness. This may not be a factor for many of you, but this 37-year-old body is just doesn't care to keep up like it used to.

So, there you go. Take two pills and call me in the morning to tell me about all the great sex.

**you will not have an immediate increase in libido, so don't come back moaning - remember, slow and steady wins the race (insert other fortune cookie contents here)**

Huh, we've both been taking Fish Oil for a while, but so far it's only Michael that has gotten all the effects. LOL But then again, he does discredit the whole "I just had a freaking baby!" as an excuse for not feeling in the mood. LOL

Dang, I have an unopen bottle of fish oil in the pantry. And to think all I had to do was walk to the kitchen cabinet instead of spending 25 bucks on rechargeable batteries.
