Sex life a little lacking? Spice things up with these five super foods that are also aphrodisiac foods:
1. Seeds & Nuts
Almonds and walnuts contain melatonin and other necessary healthy fats and nutrients that are required in the production of sex hormones.
Without these critical nutrients, one can experience depression and can negatively affect mood, desire, and focus.
Almonds are fertility boosters that have been described as a sexual stimulant but have also been found to reduce infertility and miscarriages.
These nutrient dense nuts also provide critical minerals such as selenium, zinc and provide a great source of vitamin E.
2. Citrus Fruits
Citrus fruits such as grapefruits, oranges and added lemon to your water can boost your confidence and performance in bed.
According to several studies, vitamin C has been found to improve overall sperm health in men and decrease the risk of infertility in both sexes.
Citrus fruits provide a boost to your cardiovascular system, but they are also packed with antioxidants and glucose for improved focus, enhanced mood and decreased impact of stress hormones that can kill an erection and the moment.
Berries can be one of the most sensual foods for both men and women. Strawberries contain high amounts of folate and vitamin C.
The powerful nutrients found in berries carry cardiovascular effects to enhance your thoughts, your actions, and your performance.
How creative you are with your berries may indicate how creative you are sexually.
Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries all make perfect teasers that can drive your partner over the edge. You can dip those berries in chocolate for added stimulation to your pleasure centers.
4. Dark Chocolate
Eating chocolate may be music to your ears and send you to a state of bliss.
Dark chocolate is a sensual food that can not only trigger the mood but also the brain chemicals needed for sex.
The brain chemical serotonin can directly produce feelings of pleasure. Dark chocolate also contains arginine and flavinols that can create a Viagra-like effect.
Avocados are one of the healthiest foods on the planet.
Avocados are loaded with healthy fats that will stimulate fat loss, balance hormones and pack a powerful aphrodisiac effect.
Avocados are a super food for your brain, heart and most importantly the blood vessels in the action areas.
