If sex is starting to feel more like a chore than a treat, the culprit could be one of many things, like stress at work or those darn bills. Surprisingly, one of the fastest way to give your libido a boost is to change your diet. Here’s a handy little guide to the foods with frisky benefits.
Some fruits have way more than just nutritional value to offer you and your partner. Take watermelons for example. They contain an amino acid called citrulline that increases your sex drive by relaxing your blood vessels.
They’re packed with vitamin E, which your body uses to produce estrogen and other hormones that help with lubrication.
This one’s a no-brainer for sure, chocolate is the king of natural aphrodisiacs. It contains phenylethylamine, which is known as “the love chemical,” because it releases dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain and peaks during orgasms.
Their aroma is said to arouse passion, but technically speaking, scientists say that almonds provide high doses of vitamin E, magnesium and even fiber, which can help with hormone stimulation.
If you’re not using raw garlic when you cook, it’s time to add it to your seasoning lineup. Garlic contains allicin, which is thought to increase blood flow to sexual organs.
