If you think your sexual desire is low or you find yourself too stressed to have sex, that all you can think of is sleep, sleep and sleep, you don’t really have to run to a Doctor! All it takes is to add some foods to your diet in order to boost your libido.
YOU MIGHT SAY WHAT?
ADD STRAWBERRIES TO YOUR DIET: Good circulation is thought to be crucial for sexual functioning in both men and women, and strawberries are rich in antioxidants that benefit your heart and arteries. They’re rich in vitamin C, which along with antioxidants, has been linked to higher sperm counts in men. Try dipping the berries in dark chocolate, which contains methylxanthines that may activate the libido.
AVOCADO: Avocadoes are rich in vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties, potassium, and vitamin B6, which may prevent or delay heart disease and promote better blood flow. They’re also a good source of heart-healthy mono unsaturated fats. Anything that helps your heart and circulation can also be critical for a healthy sex life. Men with heart disease are twice as likely to have erectile dysfunction because both conditions can result from artery damage.
WATERMELON: Although not as organ-specific as drugs that treat men’s erectile dysfunction, watermelon may help improve blood flow to erectile tissue (present in the female clit¬oral area as well as the male penis), increasing arousal.
BANANAS: Bananas contain the bromelain enzyme, which is believed to increase libido and reverse impotence in men. Additionally, they are good sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body’s overall energy levels.
Coffee and chocolate are both great to eat beforehand. Both foods are considered aphrodisiacs because they produce positive mood States, release endorphins, provide energy (caffeine), and increase physical endurance.
Wine and other forms of alcoholic drinks may help people to relax, but since alcohol is a depressant, it makes some people feel depressed, and others feel so relaxed they want to fall asleep. Alcohol also sometimes impairs sexual performance in some men.
Eggs are high 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. Some people will eat raw chicken eggs just prior to sex to increase libido and maximise energy level.
