8 Foods for a Better Sex Life
Yes, we all know that oysters are associated with the bedroom dance. But what other foods out there can help? Karaz’s Shahrazad scopes the grocery lists for easily accessible aphrodisiacs that will put a little more zing to your zang.
Avocados are great for your heart and arteries. They’re rich in the good kind of fats that keep your heart strong and pumping hard when you need blood to flow to all the right places.
Almonds are a nutrient-rich snack that packs all the right vitamins for a better sex life. For example, Zinc increases sexual desire and selenium and vitamin E are good for not only sexual health, but fertility as well.
Spinach and Greens
Spinach is crammed with magnesium, which dilates blood vessels and gets blood going to your privates. It’s great to get arousal going for both men and women and really, why not start working a good time while eating dinner?
Sweet tea is big in our region. Unfortunately, the sweet part doesn’t do us much good. What is good are the antioxidants found in tea that not only promotes blood flow for sex, but also for your brain. Tea enhances memory, puts you in a better mood and gives you more focus—all things you want to work during sex. Bonus? Tea, especially green tea or black tea, burns fat making you look and feel better.
Figs are well known for their fertility-related benefits and are full of the right kind of fibers needed for a healthier heart and sex life. The great thing about figs is also that they’re sweet, provide a boost of energy and are forgiving on your belly.
Citrus fruits are super vital for men because they’re full of antioxidants, vitamin C and folic acid—all things important for reproductive health.
Eggs are a staple of our diet, which is a blessing because eggs help balance hormone levels, stress levels and increase libido. Focus on the yolks and they’ll become your new best-friend for not only sex, but weight-loss as well.
Dark chocolate is a perfect ingredient to incorporate into your sex life. It is strongly associated with sex because dark chocolate contains phenylethylamine, which releases the same endorphins that are released by sex, and creates increased attraction between you and your partner. If you’re feeling super sexy, incorporate a kissing session with dark chocolate, and stimulate your partner with more ways than one!
