Isn’t it funny how we always blame stress and pressures from work and family when we’re not in the mood for some action? Sure, these factors can affect your sex drive, but did you know that your lifestyle can also affect your lack of libido? And when it comes to lifestyle, what you eat has a lot to do with it.
Many people have heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” And, in fact, if you eat too many sweets and processed food, it is most likely seen in your physical body, such as your skin, your hair, and even your weight. On the other hand, your skin will glow, and you’ll feel healthier when you eat a balanced, nutritious meal.
So what’s the point of all this? The truth is, what you eat can also affect your sex drive. You’ve probably heard about oysters as aphrodisiacs, which means they can you in the mood when you eat a bucket full of them, but are sex foods limited to these little shelled wonders alone?
If you have a “creative” mind, you’ll probably laugh at the sight of avocados. Just for additional information, did you know that Aztecs referred to them as “testicles?”
Well, just look at its physical shape, and you’ll know why the Aztec people had dirty minds in those ancient times.
Anyway, there is a scientific basis why avocado is among the best foods that can boost your sex life.
It is rich in unsaturated fat and low in saturated fat which is good for your heart and arteries. This means that your heart will continue to beat strongly and keep the blood flowing in the right places, including your area down there.
Whether you eat it as it is or add in your favorite dishes, avocado is truly an effective aphrodisiac.
The truth is it can be difficult to understand how certain foods can affect your sex drive.
But whatever the reasons behind it, there are foods that are meant to make your guy stand up, so stop questioning and just enjoy them. An example of this is almonds.
Almonds are among the foods that can increase passion, act as a sexual stimulant and help you in case you want your wife to have that bun in the oven.
It is rich in zinc, selenium and vitamin E – minerals that are important for sexual health and reproduction. Zinc in particular is also known for boosting your sex drive and sexual desire and thankfully, almonds are rich in that.
Simply add them to salads, your favorite recipes, or sprinkle them generously on your baked goods. You’ll love their crunchy texture and subtle sweetness, too.
Red flowers, red lipstick, red dresses and even Valentine’s Day are all symbolized by the color red. There’s always something about red that can turn anything from sorry to sexy.
In fact, a 2008 study found that men find women sexier if they are wearing anything red – but not the whole red ensemble from head to toe. Just generous amounts of red will do.
If you’re looking for the easiest way to incorporate red in sex, then simply buy strawberries. They are an excellent source of folic acid and B vitamins, which helps lower the risk of birth defects.
At the same time, a study was conducted by University of California, Berkeley, and found out that strawberries can also be a good way to increase your sperm count.
Aside from this, what can be more sensuous than making your own chocolate-dipped strawberries in one of your date nights? Aside from the fact that they’re yummy, they’re also full of libido-boosting methylxanthines, which can put you and your girl in the mood in no time.
Isn’t it amazing how people from thousands of years ago discovered sex superfoods, even without the right tools to find out what exactly causes it? An example of this is the humble clove.
For centuries, this sex superfood has been used by Indians to treat male sexual dysfunction.
And if you’re not too convinced,a study was published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine where researchers found out that clove extracts increased the sexual activity of normal male rats,
which can be pretty much safe to say that it can do the same for you even if you’re not a rat.
If you’re thinking of adding this in your daily diet, don’t worry, this superfood is so versatile. Brew it in hot apple cider, add it in your favorite exotic dish, sprinkle it on top of your chai tea latte, you name it. Cloves are so easy to work with. Oh, and if you love Mexican food, don’t forget to combine powdered cloves with cumin and cinnamon. Now that is one tasty aphrodisiac.
In tropical countries, watermelon is one of the favorite fruits during summer. It’s sweet, it’s tasty and yes, it’s 92 percent water, which is perfect to quench your thirst.
But did you know that the remaining 8 percent is jam-packed with important nutrients you need for optimal sexual health?
According to the researchers at the Texas A&M University Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center, watermelon contains a phytonutrient called “citruline,” which your body converts to arginine. This amino acid is essential in boosting nitric oxide levels in your body to relax the blood vessels and improve the blood flow down there. Just to emphasize, proper blood flow is needed to be able to get your man up and keep it that way for as long as you want.
The best way to eat it? As it is, of course. Or you can make your own watermelon smoothies, too.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s true. You’re going to need all the energy you can get to keep you recharged for the rest of the day, including what’s going to happen that night.
And one of the best foods you should include in your breakfast meal is eggs.
It doesn’t matter if you eat it poached, scrambled, fried, sunny-side up or deviled. The important thing you should know about eggs is that it is high in protein, an important source of stamina, which you’ll need when you have your sexy sessions later on. Eggs are also a good source of L-arginine, an amino acid that can help improve the blood flow down there and is shown to treat erectile dysfunction and various heart conditions.
Don’t worry. Eggs are low in calories and full of protein, so you don’t have to worry about gaining weight.
Don’t you even wonder why Asian men and women look like they haven’t aged a bit? For sure you’ve seen Japanese porn.
Doesn’t it bother you how some old men can still make it that far and that big while humping a 20-year old girl? Well, aside from their tea lifestyle, Asians are particularly fond of ginseng.
According to the researchers at the University of Hawaii, taking ginseng supplement can significantly increase your libido in just one month. 68% of the respondents also reported a significant increase in their sex drive. And just in case you haven’t noticed, most male enhancement supplements contain ginseng because of its libido-boosting benefits.
A piece of advice. Don’t settle with anything you see with “ginseng” in it. Most energy drinks that have “ginseng” on the label also has tons of chemicals and sugar in it as well, which is not very sexy at all. Plus, it can add up to your bulging belly, too, which is also not a turn-on.
History will tell you about the many accomplishments of the kings of the ancient times. However, it won’t tell you what they are eating, right?
Just in case you weren’t informed, King Henry VII and other ancient Asians, both rulers and ordinary people alike, used ginger for medicinal purposes. Why is that?
It was later discovered that ginger helps in the circulation, which eventually boosts your libido. If you want to enjoy this benefit, you can have it raw, in supplement form or add it to your favorite recipe or drink. Aside from that, ginger is an excellent defense during the cold and flu season. You don’t want to have a runny nose during sex, right?
Aru-what? Well, dear men, it’s a-ru-gu-la and believe it or not, it is one of the oldest and most effective arousal aids man has used since the dinosaurs left the Earth and the homo creatures start to emerge.
These dark, leafy greens are essential for your sexual health, thanks to the traces of minerals and antioxidants that are packed in it.
In return, arugula helps your body block the absorption of environmental contaminants that can affect your sex drive in a really bad way. So after a long, stressful day at work, eating arugula or adding it on your favorite dish will help, especially when your girl steps out of the shower and naked because she’s so in the mood for some action.
Aside from these libido-boosting foods, did you know that there is a pill that can also help you with your sex drive? If you’re not a kitchen guy and your girlfriend doesn’t love you enough to cook for you – which is not a good sign, by the way – then take ProSolution Pills. These little pills are packed with new and improved ingredients, such as Korean ginseng and butea superba, both proven to give you fuller and harder erections.
