Cloves as an aphrodisiac: properties, preparation and dangers

Table des matières

Traditional medicines have used cloves as an aphrodisiac for centuries. They are believed to have numerous medicinal virtues, ranging from pain relief to the treatment of digestive disorders, bad breath and rheumatism. Cloves also have a reputation as an aphrodisiac, on a par with other products such as Viagra or Member XXL. Let’s take a look at the benefits of cloves for men.

Properties and benefits of cloves

The main active ingredient in cloves is eugenol, found in many mouthwashes and antiseptic products. This component is also present in certain anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve muscle and ligament inflammation. Cloves are also said to treat digestive disorders such as bloating or flatulence. What’s more, they are among the foods richest in antioxidants. Although no scientific study has formally confirmed these properties, the use of cloves in medicines available on the French market seems credible. As for cloves’ reputation as an aphrodisiac, this too is not scientifically proven. What can be said is that moderate consumption of cloves improves overall health, which can only be beneficial for sexual desire. As testosterone is the hormone par excellence for boosting libido, it’s possible that cloves have a positive effect on it. There is no scientific certainty on this subject, but a positive presumption as to their aphrodisiac nature.

Preparing and eating cloves

  • The easiest way to consume cloves and benefit from their aphrodisiac effect is to infuse them.
  • You can also incorporate cloves into your daily meals.
  • If you use cloves as an infusion, make sure you don’t exceed one cup a day.
  • For powdered cloves, it’s recommended not to exceed 0.1 to 0.3 grams per day.
  • When consumed as an essential oil, 2 ml is the maximum quantity not to be exceeded.

It is important to respect these doses to avoid undesirable effects. Cloves can have side effects, especially if overdosed. It is therefore advisable to consult a doctor before starting any clove-based treatment. Care should also be taken with essential oils, as they are often highly concentrated and can cause burns or irritation when applied directly to the skin in their untreated state.

Dangers and precautions when using cloves

Consumption of cloves is strictly inadvisable for :

  • Pregnant or breast-feeding women,
  • Children under twelve years of age.

In case of doubt or persistent libido problems, it is advisable to consult a sexologist. This health professional will be able to help you find the cause of your problems and suggest a suitable solution. Don’t hesitate to tell him/her about your clove consumption, so that he/she can take this into account in his/her diagnosis. In summary, while cloves have many health benefits, their effectiveness as an aphrodisiac has not been scientifically proven. However, their consumption can help to improve overall health and thus promote sexual desire. However, it is important to respect recommended doses and consult a doctor if in doubt.
