|20 Foods That Will Increase Your Libido For Sex by Nobody: 5:05pm On Sep 05, 2018|
People often ignore the nutrition area of s*x drive. Due to the toxic nature of processed foods, our hormones may not flourish like it should.
Some people are not even aware that their low libido could be connected to what they eat, or what do they do not eat.
Below are 20 great foods you can add to your diet to spike up your libido and effectively increase your s*x drive:
Watermelon, aka ‘the new Viagra’, contains citrulline, an amino acid that relaxes blood vessels thereby increasing your s*x drive. There have been multiple attempts to introduce L-citrulline in natural health supplements.
Celery may not be the food of choice that you dream of when thinking s*x, but it is a great source food for sexual stimulation.
Celery contains the hormone androsterone, a naturally occurring steroid found in human sweat and urine which is released through perspiration.
It basically signals the brain centers in women to increase their sexual appetite when triggered. Celery is best eaten raw and should never be cooked.
Bananas contain the bromelain enzyme, that increases libido and reverses impotence in men.
Also, they are potent sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body’s overall energy levels.
Bromelain has also been reported to have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects.
Asparagus is high in the B vitamin folate that helps increase your production of histamine. The correct levels of histamine are important for increasing the sex drive in men and women.
Figs are excellent sources of amino acids that increase libido. They can also improve sexual stamina. Amino acids play a vital role in the normal sexual function and will help increase the level of nitric oxide in the body.
The fig is said to increase sexual stamina as well as having a sexual appearance, flavor and smell to heighten all our senses to improve our mood and let our libido rise from their slumber.
Packed with potassium, manganese, and antioxidants, this fruit also helps support proper pH levels in the body.
If you like it hot and spicy, this is for you. Chillies contain capsaicin, a chemical which also increases blood flow and triggers the release of mood-enhancing endorphins that naturally pump up your libido.
Chili peppers are also a heart-healthy food with potential to protect the heart.
Loaded with potassium, boost libido for both sexes. And they’re rich in folate which provides energy and stamina – both of which are important once your libido is restored.
The Aztecs referred to the avocado tree ahuacatl as a “testicle tree.” They contain vitamin B6 (a nutrient that increases male hormone production) and potassium (which helps regulate a woman’s thyroid gland), two elements that help increase libido in both men and women.
They contain omega-3 and fatty acids to help produce testosterone in men and provide the raw material for a man’s healthy production of hormones.
They also contain vitamins E and B2, magnesium and calcium. Additionally, the smell of almonds arouses passion in females and is known to be an aphrodisiac.
You can add to the s*xual ambiance by lighting some almond-scented candles to build up her mood.
Eat almonds raw, never roasted, sweetened or salted.
Eggs are rich in vitamins B6 and B5. These help balance hormone levels and fight stress, two things that are crucial to a healthy libido.
Eggs are also a symbol of fertility and rebirth. Taking raw eggs just prior to s*x is said to heighten libido and maximize energy levels.
All bird and fish eggs contain B6 and B5.
While you don’t want to be stinking of garlic during a passionate lip lock, garlic contains allicin, an ingredient that increases blood flow to the sexual organs
This trick doesn’t work overnight however as you need to consume it for about a month to reap its rewards.
Chocolate contains theobromine — an alkaloid — which is very similar to caffeine. It also contains phenylethylamine, a chemical that produces the feeling of “being in love.”
Modern-day foodies know raw cacao in its pure unadulterated form is a superfood. It has more antioxidants than green tea or red wine.
The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study that found, women who enjoyed a piece of chocolate every day had a more active sex life than those who didn’t.
In addition, dark chocolate has a massive amount of anti-oxidants, which are great for the body in general, as they help maintain the immune system.
