  • One thing people should realize about Zestra is that it is an oil-based product, and is therefore not condom-safe. The active ingredients in Zestra are:
    Borage seed oil, which is gamma linoleic acid, which helps the body produce prostaglandins. Borage seed oil is also a potent vasodilator and blood thinner.
    Evening primrose oil, which may have an effect on prostaglandin synthesis when taken internally, but has not been proven to do jack squat when applied externally.
    Angelica extract, which has been proven to cause skin irritation and phototoxic reactions.
    Coleus extract, which has not been proven to do anything whatsoever.
    Vitamin C, which might cause the old bajingo to be less wrinkly, but won't do a damn thing for the libido.
    Vitamin E, which can have a positive effect on sex drive when taken internally in combination with other vitamins, but won't do anything if rubbed on but soften skin.
    It's a rip-off.

  • Honestly, women would be better off if they made sure they were getting enough zinc, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E and Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids through food sources. All of these vitamins and minerals are key in maintaining a healthy sex drive and overall mood balance, and more than 70% of American women who have had one or more children are deficient in these exact vitamins and minerals. Food sources are more bioavailable than supplement pills, because conjugate enzymes found in the foods that contain them are required for the body to use them properly. Exercise is also a factor in maintaining mood balance and sex drive.
