Have you ever felt like the greatest sex warrior ever only to falter midway just because your body ain’t able? Dehydration sets in, a random body part starts to cramp up and things can go downhill very quickly in the bedroom. Maybe its just sleep you need or maybe its the partner. Either way, you’re probably driving yourself into a ditch. Food can quickly come to the rescue and we have come up with a list of the top 10 foods that may help you in the bedroom.
Watermelon is recommended not only because it’s yummy, but it also has the capacity to heat things up in the bedroom. According to a well known professional health coach Lori L. Shemek, watermelon has the potential to increase libido in both males and females due to an amino acid called citrulline, and it may help to dilate blood vessels in some ways similar to Viagra.
Cinnamon as we all know, is this sweet and comforting spice that we use in many recipes we have on record. Little did we know that it can also be a key ingredient in adding some much-needed zest to your sex life. Just ask JJ Virgin, a famous nutritionist who championed the benefits of cinnamon by saying that cinnamon has the potential to reduce blood glucose levels because steady blood sugar equals sustained energy without spikes and crashes that can kill your mood in the bedroom.
History buffs would tell us that the Aztecs used to, we kid you not, refer avocados as, testicles. While it was merely a physical thing at the time, scientific research in modern times have shown why avocados make sense as an aphrodisiac. The rich unsaturated fats, low saturated fat content, and heart healthy oils help keep blood flowing to all the right places.
Almonds have long been purported to be a nut that stimulates sex all while aiding with fertility. They are rich in nutrients and include several trace minerals that are essential for sexual health and reproduction. The selenium, zinc, and vitamin E, help enhance libido and sexual desire.
Strawberries are excellent sources of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps decrease the chances of birth defects in women and may aid in higher sperm production in men. If you want to boost your libido on a Valentine’s Day, make sure you have enough strawberries in your refrigerator!
This one is a classic. Dspite their slimy texture, oysters may be the most well-known aphrodisiac. The enormous amount of zinc in them makes oysters a must in every libido-boosting eating program.
Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a chemical compound that can create feelings of happiness and euphoria by releasing dopamine, the neurotransmitter in the brain that increases during orgasms. It is also no surprise when studies after studies have shown that women who’ve consumed chocolate were more likely to have an increased libido than those who didn’t. That said, you got to pick the right chocolate and we recommend you stick to dark chocolate as it’s less processed and won’t pack on the pounds.
While garlic can do a number on your breath thanks to its pungent flavor, it has the ability to improve blood flow to organs, all thanks to its compound allicin. If you want a win-win food that provides you with health and sexual benefits, add garlic in your diet today. That said, make sure you wash your mouth after eating them as you really don’t want to scare off your partner with that pungent smell coming out of your mouth.
2. Cayenne Pepper
This steamy spice contains the ingredient capsaicin, which can increase heart rate, blood flow, perspiration, and metabolism. A little powder in your dish will easily increase temperatures and get you ready for that hot steady sex.
Spinach is a well known leafy green that is loaded with the compound folate, a water-soluble B vitamin that serves to help the body form red blood cells. It is a folate rich food that helps to improve circulation in your body, thereby helping you in the sex department. That said, it is suggested to make folic-rich foods, like spinach, a part of your daily diet to see results.
