Did you know that your diet is related to your sex life? While there are a range of factors that determine if your intimacy is a 10/10, what you eat could affect your intimacy levels. Your mind, body, and soul are all connected, so it’s no surprise that what you put in your body could affect your most intimate moments.
Grab the melons
Does watermelon deliver Viagra-like effects to your blood vessels? Could it even aid with increasing libido? Fingers crossed! Arginine, an amino acid found in the red fruit, is a chemical that helps your blood vessels relax, promoting good blood flow.
Pile up the zinc
Almonds, and pumpkin seeds, and oysters, oh my! Zinc, also dubbed the ‘ultimate sex mineral,’ can boost libido, increase desire, and even keep testosterone levels in check!
Eliminate processed items
Decreased sexual function can be a result of a diet packed with fast food and trans fat. For men, it can restrict blood flow down there and lead to erectile dysfunction. The unhealthy fats also block ventricles, reducing oxygen to your sexual organs.
Eat more bananas
This yellow phallic fruit is considered an aphrodisiac. Bananas are filled with the bromeliad enzyme which enhan
ces libido, and they are great sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body’s energy levels.
You heard it! Consuming chocolate could boost your sex life. It’s full of methylxanthines, a stimulant that increases the body’s sensitivity, and contains ingredients such as phenylethylamine, which may boost serotonin and endorphin levels.
Choose leafy greens
Think spinach, arugula, kale, and swiss chard. These veggies may not sound too sexy, but these antioxidant-rich foods can help block unwanted toxins that can lower your libido. Asparagus is another folate-rich green veggie that can boost libido. Folate regulates histamine production, the chemical that is released during an orgasm.
Get some guac
In the Aztec language, Nahuatl, the word for avocados was the same as the word for testicles. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Avocados contain folic acid and vitamin b6, which can impact sex drive and make you want to try that tonight.
Go ahead, eat your way to a more fulfilling and satisfying life. You don’t have to be a fancy chef to incorporate some of these items into your daily diet. Who knows, your new passion and drive might even make Aphrodite blush.
