Certain foods have been shown to increase libido and even improve sex pleasure. These foods not only make you want to have sex, but they also aid in the stimulation and enhancement of sexual performance by interacting with internal body processes. A decline in the couple’s sex life has put a lot of relationships on the rocks. While some are considering giving up, others have turned to prayer and spiritual activities to help them get back on track. Sometimes all it takes is a simple stroll into the kitchen or the supermarket to find yourself on the road to sexual redemption. Isn’t it wonderful to learn that certain foods can help you improve your sexual relationship?
In general, eating a well-balanced diet and making it a lifestyle can help you maintain a hot sex life while also stabilizing your overall health. Fortunately, food scientists have discovered specific foods that aid in the release of hormones linked to sex drive and performance in the body. To be honest, it would take a lot more than mood music and whispering sweet nothings into your partner’s ears for the night to go perfectly. Here are some foods that can boost your libido, improve your sex life, and even improve your overall health.
Ahem!! Yes, oysters can put you in a good mood. This could be due to their high levels of zinc, which provides stamina and aids cell metabolism. Oysters are well-known aphrodisiacs because they increase both testosterone and estrogen levels, which can only mean better sexual performance for both parties. Your sex life is about to skyrocket if oysters are a regular item on your plate – don’t fasten your seat belt.
Garlic contains a high amount of allicin, which increases blood flow and, interestingly, does not exclude the underneath regions. Because the blood vessels in the penis are typically thin, it’s easy for them to become clogged. Garlic is a natural blood thinner, which may help with blood circulation and erection stability. What’s not to like about tools that are more erect and have more enduring power? This strong-smelling herb will leave a pungent trail behind it, so proceed with caution. So keep a mint on hand or take it with your partner well before bedtime.
Let’s just say that if you’re lacking in sex drive, a glass of red wine won’t help you out. Ladies, you might be interested to know that red wine increases lubrication and increases sexual desire, according to research. The quercetin in red wine appears to boost sexual response. Moderation is key, as it is with everything else. More than two glasses of wine per day will degrade your sexual performance and ruin your sex life in the long run. To get the party started, share a glass or two of red wine with your partner.
Walnuts’ L-arginine helps to keep arteries flexible, which improves blood flow in the body. Have we stressed enough how important it is for you to have enough oxygen and blood in your sex organs in order to have great sex? So, while watching TV or just ‘gisting,’ why not have walnuts with your boo? You won’t be gisting for long because your libido won’t allow you to say much. Wink!
Chocolates have long been a romantic way to express your love for your partner. There’s also a way to kill two birds with one stone. Chocolates can help your partner’s sex drive while also meeting their emotional needs. The key, however, is to obtain the antioxidants found in chocolates, and you don’t need a lot of chocolate to do so. With a bar of single dark chocolate, you can literally get high on your partner, thanks to the high cocoa content, which releases dopamine and endorphins (feel-good hormones). Allow yourself to be seduced by chocolate for that perfect night of sex.
The priapic appearance of this food clearly gave us a hint from nature. It not only looks the part, but it also has a high potassium content, which boosts testosterone production. This has been shown to improve both the male and female sex lives. Bananas also aid muscle contractions, which should not be overlooked if great sex is desired. It’s never felt so good to go bananas.
Watermelons have been around for a long time and are well-known for their ability to refresh and hydrate our bodies. Who’d have guessed that this energizing beverage contains a high amount of citrulline, which relaxes blood vessels and improves sexual arousal? Watermelons contain more lycopene than Viagra, and the function of Viagra is well understood. How else can you set the tone for the rest of the night and your sex life than by downing some watermelon juice and compensating your body with fluids, which you’ll be needing a lot of soon?
The best part is that each of these foods is readily available and does not necessitate a trip to the far reaches of the globe in search of some obscure recipe. Between the sheets, experiment with these foods and get jiggy with them.
