If you find you’re more eager to sleep than to have sex at night with your husband/wife, your sex drive may need a booster shot. But it doesn’t mean that you’re going to buy sexy clothes, fancy colognes and go to the gym to have an intense workout. All you need to do is to have this natural food into your diet that will rev up your sex drive. Here, is the list of foods that will boost your sex life.
The classic aphrodisiac! Research conducted by the American Chemical Society showed that oysters contain compounds that raise testosterone and estrogen levels.
This hormone boost can translate into heightened sexual desire and stamina. These slimy creatures are another source of zinc to help aid blood flow to the genitals in both genders.
No wonder that this fleshy green spear will boost your sex life because it looks like…well, you know what I mean…
This veggie’s phallic appearance no doubt has something to do with its legendary aphrodisiac status, but the goods are inside, too. Asparagus is rich in vitamin B6 and folate, both of which can boost arousal and orgasm.
And it also boasts vitamin E, which stimulates sex hormones in both men and women.
Nuts and Seeds
A very easy addition to any salad that can have your sex life rocketing from lukewarm to hot. Another healthy reminder. Don’t eat nuts if your allergic to it or else you’ll find yourself in the hospital.
Cashews and almonds are full of zinc, whilst walnuts are high in omega-3. This may make you instantly think of fish but the essential fatty acids found in omega-3 help with the sexual response by raising dopamine levels in the brain that trigger arousal. They’re also important for energy, memory, mood, and libido.
The name for this South American fruit derives from the Aztec language Nahuatl, in which it meant “testicle” – a name chosen for the fruit’s unusual shape.
Energy and a healthy libido are crucial for great sex, and avocados can give you both. They’re loaded with minerals, monounsaturated fats (the good kind that protects the heart and lowers cholesterol), and vitamin B6—all of which help keep your energy and sex drive up.
They’re also a top source of omega-3 fatty acids, which naturally boost your mood, making you more likely to feel ready for bedroom action.
Black raspberries are rich in Phytochemicals (which are chemical compounds occurring naturally in plants) which stimulate the brain, enhance the libido and increase your endurance.
It isn’t just the fruit that does this – you can either eat ten black raspberries OR a tablespoon of the seeds 1-2 hours before becoming intimate and these will help increase your lackluster sex drive.
Whereas chocolate is something that women will automatically reach for, men are more inclined to fancy a really nice juicy piece of steak. This is good because red meat is full of protein which naturally increases dopamine levels (the hormone that makes you feel SO GOOOOOD) meaning your steak dinner will turn you into a beast in the bedroom. RAWR!
Red meat is also an excellent source of Zinc (just like oysters), so, if you’re allergic to fish there are other ways of getting the blood flowing.
Chocolate is definitely a food substance that few people can resist. It’s sweet, rich flavor melts in the mouth and gives you that desired sugar hit when you’re having a down day, but did you know that dark chocolate contains phenethylamine (PEA) which is a chemical released in the brain when people fall in love AND it triggers the same endorphins that are released during sex (allowing your libido to be lifted).
No wonder Aztec ruler Montezuma was consuming up to 50 cups of (drinking) chocolate to increase his sex drive before an evening of copulation with his harem – it appears chocolate has been a powerful aphrodisiac for many centuries. That’s a lot of melted chocolate to drink, you better start drinking now and does anyone say chocolate fondue.
Poached, scrambled or fried, eggs are sure to rev you up after a long day at work.
They are full of protein, which keeps you going without packing on the calories.
They’re also an excellent source of amino acids, which combat certain types of heart ailments as well as erectile dysfunction.
Don’t forget to bring this mouth-watering dessert on your next picnic.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin B, which has been linked to high sperm counts in men. Thinking about going to La Presa Strawberry Farm in Baguio City.
Go one step further and coat them with chocolate, as it is full of libido-boosting methylxanthines. Ooh talking about “Dip and Eat”.
The nutrient citrulline, found in this juicy, and watery fruit can have a Viagra-like effect on the body as it boosts nitric oxide which relaxes the blood vessels.
This is the same effect that Viagra has to treat erectile dysfunction.
