Are Apples the Best Food for a Better Sex Life in Women?

[Music] the creation and promotion of female sexual dysfunction as a mental disorder seems like a textbook case of disease mongering by the pharmaceutical industry hearkening back to the first DSM psychiatry’s diagnosis manual which listed frigidity as a mental disorder along of course with homosexuality the latest manifestation is hypoactive sexual desire disorder a disease invented by drug companies it’s like when prozac was about to go off patent the company sponsored the creation of a new mental illness to market a drug called Seraphim which was simply prozac repacked in a pink capsule the condition previously known as shyness was branded as social anxiety disorders so they could get kids on paxil there are certainly women who are troubled by low libido but there’s no reliable scientific evidence that hypoactive sexual desire disorder is a real medical condition and women can get diagnosed with it even with a normal lab IDO a woman highly interested in sex just not for whatever reason with her current partner can still qualify for the diagnosis and the drug even a woman who is perfectly satisfied with her sex life may still qualify if her partner isn’t our story begins in 2009 when a drug company tried to get a failed antidepressant called the flibanserin approved to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder the only problem it didn’t work it was resubmitted again after more study and was still rejected as was the appeal but in 2015 the fda approved the drug what changed nothing about its efficacy it didn’t work any better what changed is that the drug company that bought it helped launch an astroturf fake grassroots advocacy group even the score which lobbied for approval under a feminist rubric men have their drugs why don’t women get any sex drugs which was exposed it’s kind of a bitter irony but hey within 48 hours of FDA approval the drug was sold for a cool billion in cash very satisfying for the drug company but what about the women who take the drug now sold as addyi not much the drug just doesn’t work as advertised yes it may stimulate monkeys to groom each other more but when researchers dug up the unpublished data about the drug and in clinical benefit was found to be marginal and the drug was found to have significant adverse side effects besides being ineffective it can be dangerous combining it with alcohol can cause dangerous hypotension and fainting problems so serious that the FDA put a black box warning on it as its most serious safety alert on the label that of course no one reads even without alcohol it can cause severe drops in blood pressure levels and cause a sudden a prolonged unconsciousness now serious side effects might be acceptable in some kind of cancer wonder drug or something but are entirely unacceptable in a drug given to healthy women for an invented condition are there any safe and natural solutions well there’s lots of studies undyed and men’s sexual health but what about women’s I’ve previously explored the evidence about women with high cholesterol levels reporting diminished sexual function across a number of dimensions this could explain why a more plant-based diet rich in a variety of whole plant foods might be effective in ameliorating sexual function issues in women as it does in men more whole grains beans vegetables and fruit and less meat dairy and sugar associated with a reduced risk of erectile dysfunction because of the anatomy and physiology of sexual responses are actually you know quite similar between the two can have a similar effect you can you can measure clitoral engorgement with fancy MRI techniques within minutes of exposure to a video and we know now that lubrication is all about blood flow to within the sexually aroused vagina it’s the hydrostatic pressure from all the additional pelvic blood flow that forces fluid to leak out onto the surface as the vaginal lubrication so how can we improve blood flow well the flavonoid phytonutrients in Cocoa can help open up arteries increasing pulse wave amplitude from this set baseline to this after drinking cocoa for four days and peaking at about 90 minutes after consumption so can that Valentine’s Day chocolate make a difference women who eat chocolate do tend to have higher female sexual function index scores but the effect disappeared once age was taken into account so despite all the potential biological mechanisms supporting a role for chocolate as an aphrodisiac food the study failed to show a benefit one would assume that chocolate could improve blood flow but remember that was with cocoa powder maybe the fat in sugar and chocolate counteracting the benefits what are some whole food sources of flavonoids well onions have a lot and indeed fresh onion juice enhances copulatory behavior in rats but for those of us less interested in increasing the percentage of ejaculating rats and looking for something other than onion juice for our hot date how about that Apple but there wasn’t that study addressing the potential correlation between daily apple consumption woman’s sexual function until now the title kind of gives it away but women were split into regular daily Apple consumers versus those consuming less than an apple a day and the hundreds of Apple eaters in the study scored significantly higher on the female sexual function index now note they only included women eating unn peeled apples because the phytonutrients are concentrated in the peel so we don’t know if there’s a link with peeled apples and this was just an observational study so further studies will be necessary to clarify the relationship between Apple in taken female sexuality however the present data can allow the development of future research for identifying new compounds and food supplements to use in female sexuality recovery or you can just try eating an apple [Music] you


  1. Apples have pesticides wich fck your hormones and that accounts for the data. Sexuality changes with all those poisons

  2. I live in a food desert so often apples are the only fruit I can reliably find and afford to buy. #TeamApple! ❀️?❀️

  3. Why don't they just take low levels of DHEA..5mg to 10 mg makes women libido skyrocket..You can find this on pubmed

  4. Dr. Greger is way off on this video..Apples will not restore a womans libido or desire..Food is a good start but most woman my age around 40-45 do great with DHEA…and Maca

  5. A YouTube user called β€œ TL;DR β€œ has a fantastically detailed series of videos about the drug flibanserin aka Addyi.

  6. increase protein to >2.5g/kg in a day (yes u heard that right…rda *3 pretty much), may require overeating calories (or even animal products if u want to go that far)
    add dha/epa supplement and/or chlorella (for a more wholesome mineral/essential fatty source)
    increase sodium
    decrease fat (but not too low…ull know what too low is when it makes u tired…best range is probably 35-60g fat a day or so)

    how u have some woman that wants to fuck more than anything else
    have fun~ i suppose

  7. Women just need to get with some meat eaters for that. Drop the submissive vegans. The bean farts dont promote romance.

  8. I had really high sex drive until 37 now at 38 it went way down only get urges after eating a lot of vegetables and protein. Why is that.

  9. The entire industry is perverted. If not sexually then for money.
    Its completely worthless yet premiums are mandatory lol lmfao.
    Its a shit show at best.

  10. Dear gooseberries, those side-effects of that libido enhancer sound like the same (side-)effects of a notorious "rape drug" I've heard about.

  11. Of course only feminism could get the FDA to approve a non effective and damaging drug without question. I'm sure the irony of this is goes over feminists heads as well.

  12. Most of you failed to notice he only presented one study that shows beneficial effects of apple consumption regarding sexual activity. That's not very conclusive at all.

  13. Hi! I remember Dr. Greger mentioning, in one of his Q&A videos from last year, 2 or 3 good books about vegan pregnancies and raising vegan children. I forget what books/authors they were and find myself pregnant now! I’ll take any suggestions he might have.. thank you!!

  14. Greetings ??‍♀️

    Dr. Greger,

    Can you give me some tips on how to cut industrial sugar consumption? I tried a couple of times to avoid it, but there were also a couple of times that I could not resist it. Everywhere are sugary temptations, on my way to work, at work, when I visit friends etc.

    Are there any tips on that topic?

  15. I thought older videos recommended apples for men, as women didn't get the same advantage from eating one.

    Dr. Greger, please put this down to an end
    Another video by Christpher Walker and phytic acid in oats, and other plant based sources

  17. So what will happen if I will eat two or three appels every day ?. OMG. Thank you so much for this Video.

  18. Good thing asexuality is becoming more widely accepted and understood as a real and valid orientation. ? As valid as homosexuality.

  19. Social-anxiety is a real diagnosis though, it's not just "shyness". Some people really do experience cold sweats, nausea, intense feelings of dread when told they're in or told they're going to be in a social situation.
    I don't support the use of SSRI's and its variants to "treat" it as there are many more natural ways of reducing it to near-zero permanently without the use of CBT.

  20. Oh my gosh, onion juice on a hot date… Leave it to Dr. Greger to make scientific studies both interesting and funny

  21. Whole food plant based diet is the best for a good libido, as it is for everything! I'd actually need something to lover my libido… this is going out of control sometimes! πŸ˜€ It's great to live healthy! πŸ˜‰

  22. The more science investigates and the more studies we do, the more in line Biblical scriptures prove themselves in alignment with man and diet.

  23. Horrifying how much the medical industry basically thrived off sexism (towards both women AND men), homophobia, manipulation, and lie lie lies.
