Foods to Boost Your Sex Life

Bananas, garlic, raisins and honey

William Shakespeare once said: let music be the food of love. What about the foods for sex drive? Let’s check out the following:

Bananas: Bananas offer a good source of potassium and B vitamins which are important for the production of sex hormones. Moreover, the presence of the enzyme bromelain helps boost libido. It also contains bufotenine, a chemical that stimulates the brain to increase happiness, self-confidence and sex drive. My favorite fruit is bananas and it is yummy and I eat regularly as they help digestion.

Asparagus; It is very rich in potassium, phosphorous, calcium, vitamin E to excite the urinary passages and increase hormone production. It is one the Chinese dishes that I enjoy very much.

Garlic: It contains high levels of allicin, a compound that can improve blood flow to the sexual organ. Allicin is only produced once garlic has been chopped as it is produced through an enzymes reaction. It is one of the ingredients commonly used in Chinese cuisine and you should eat more of it.

Oysters: According to a team of US and Italian chemists, shellfish like oysters, clams and mussels contain compounds that have been shown to be effective in releasing sexual hormones in humans. At the American Chemical Society meeting it was mentioned that there might be a scientific basis for the aphrodisiac properties in shellfish because the presence of compounds such as D-aspartic acid and NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) stimulate the secretion of testosterone and oestrogen in humans.

Ginseng: Apart from strengthening the heart, revitalizing the nervous system it also increases hormone production. I usually take a few slices to chew whenever I do long distance driving. It helps maintain my alertness on the road. Check out further health benefits of Ginseng (人参 renshen).

Honey: It is rich in aspartic acid, an important amino acid which is involved, particularly, in the rejuvenation of sex glands. There is always a jar of honey in our fridge. It is a delicious thirst quencher and when you drink regularly you can reduce the chances of getting cold and cough.

Raisins: Due to the presence of an amino acid called arginine raisins are known to stimulate libido, induce arousal and treat problems in erection. It is my favorite snack food. Ii is sweet and a delight to munch. And it is good for ocular and oral health. You can find more goodness in raisins by reading my article: Raisins - Health Benefits.

Pumpkin seeds: They contain zinc, an essential mineral for the production of testosterone in men and also helps sustain sexual desire in women.

You can get most of the natural foods easily. In addition to taking advantage of their aphrodisiac properties you should consume them regularly to maintain robust health and abundant energy.
