Sex Drive Nutrition

How much and what you eat has a huge impact on your sexual health. If you find you’re more eager to sleep than have sex on an daily basis, your sex drive may need a booster shot. All it takes is adding these key foods into your diet to boost libido and get back in the mood:

  • Asparagus, Spinach & Broccoli: these 3 horn dogs are a potent source of magnesium & vitamin C, which both help dilate blood vessels & create better blood flow to the important parts.
  • Eggs: rich in vitamins B6 and B5, which help balance hormone levels, ease stress and are important for a healthy libido. In addition, they’re a good source for the amino acid L-arginine, which has been shown effective in treating erectile dysfunction. A couple of eggs will rev you up after a long day so you can go the distance in the dark.
  • Fatty Fish: what’s good for your heart is good for your love life, oily coldwater fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, and tuna should feature heavily into your weekly meal rotation. The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA found in fish help to raise dopamine levels in the brain that trigger arousal. Fatty fish also contain that same magic amino acid as eggs: L-arginine.
  • Oysters: Famous for their reputation as the ultimate aphrodisiac, oysters hold more zinc than most any other food. Zinc enhances libido by helping with testosterone production – higher levels of the hormone are linked to an increase in sexual desire. Zinc is also crucial to healthy sperm production and blood circulation.

And my personal favourite..

  • Red Wine & Steak: the antioxidants in red wine trigger the production of nitric oxide in the blood, increasing blood flow to the genitals. Just limit yourselves to a glass or two – more alcohol than that can put a damper on sexual performance. However there is a catch, you must choose lean red meat – lean cuts are another great sources of zinc, the mineral that curbs production of a hormone called prolactin, which at high levels can cause sexual dysfunction.
