We will be listing 10 foods that boosts your libido and increases your sex drive. Make sure to include these foods to your grocery list and give some to your partner.
Known as one of the best foods for reproductive health, Soy has been used over centuries to improve sexual health and manage hormonal imbalance. Soy is known for its isoflavone compounds, which mimic the action of estrogen. Estrogen keeps the vaginal area lubricated to enhance sexual pleasure.
Tip: try using soy milk into your next smoothie.
Dark chocolate contains a compound called phenylethylamine, which was shown to release the same endorphins triggered by sex, according to a study in the Journal of the American Diabetic Association. Chocolate is a great aphrodisiac, and it contains magnesium, which can make you feel very relaxed.
Sweet Potato is rich in beta carotene, which feeds your body infertility-fighting vitamin A. Their sweet centers are rich in vitamin C, which produces anti-aging collagen, energy-boosting iron, and potassium, which is known to help fight high blood pressure (high BP is associated with a higher risk of erectile dysfunction).
Avocados are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats, libido-boosting vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin E, which is often called the “sex vitamin” due to its youth-boosting antioxidant properties and ability to increase oxygen and blood flow to your sexual regions.
Bananas are a great source of potassium, a critical nutrient for muscle contraction which is very important for good quality sex. Also, bananas naturally contain bromelain, which helps produce testosterone.
The protein in eggs can boost energy and focus. Plus, they’re a good source of vitamin B6, which helps balance your hormone levels and regulate libido.
Garlic is filled with allicin, an active compound that increases blood flow, making everything extra sensitive to touch. It also stimulates blood circulation for stronger erections and greater endurance in the bedroom.
Tip: if you’re worried about your breath after consuming raw garlic, try adding it to your cooked meals and oven dishes.
Watermelon contains the phytonutrient citrulline, which converts to arginine, an amino acid that relaxes blood vessels. Studies show watermelon may help improve blood flow to erectile tissue (present in the female clitoral area as well as the male penis), increasing arousal.
Walnuts are good sources of L-arginine. L-arginine keeps arteries flexible, dilates blood vessels, and improves blood flow, which is important for getting oxygen to the sex organs and strengthens erection in men.
Red grapes are a good source of boron, which is a mineral that helps stimulate the production of both estrogen and testosterone.
