Phytotherapy used in Romania for aphrodisiac purposes in men:
The aphrodisiac virtues of humoral mediators derived from plants (phytotherapy) and used in Romania as pleasure stimulants have been known since antiquity, as substances that increase sexual performance and fertility. The human body, by its constitution, accepts and responds much better to phytotherapeutic products than to aphrodisiac medications, which are synthetic chemical products.
The mentioned phytotherapeutic arsenal is found in the components of plants (seeds, roots, leaves) in the form of phytoandrogens.
Phytotherapeutic remedies are, from a biochemical point of view, levorotatory isomeric molecules, their assimilation by the human body being direct, that is, it is achieved without additional metabolic effort. These remedies improve the quality of the male sexual act, by increasing the libido and stimulating the erection, due to their content in active principles, especially alkaloids and sexual hormones (Treaty of Clinical Sexology).
