Foods and your Sex drive!

People don’t really realise how much food can help with different areas of their life. I therefore feel it’s only right that I share the knowledge I come across with you.

I was actually eating some dinner when this article came to my attention and found it to be quite a coincidence that I was eating at least 4 out of the 6 foods listed (pretty great right LOL)

I’m sure there’s a lot more foods that could be listed but we’ll start with these 6 and if there’s an interest in the subject I’ll do some more research and come back with some juicy info (no pun intended)

Below are some foods that you may want to involve in your diet, not only for the extra “boost” but also for their other health benefits.

ENJOY!

1. Salmon: Wild caught salmon is a great source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that help maintain the fluidity of our cell membranes. They keep our cardiovascular systems healthy by reducing inflammation, preventing excessive blood clotting, and keeping fats in the blood at healthy levels.

2. Avocado: They’re anti-inflammatory, so they support a healthy cardiovascular system and blood sugar regulation. In addition, they’re high in fiber and rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, the fat-soluble vitamin K, folate, and B vitamins. They’re also a source of high-quality protein.

3. Watermelon: Watermelon is rich in a chemical called citrulline that helps make nitric oxide, which dilates blood vessels. It also contains the phytonutrient lycopene and beta-carotene, which act as antioxidants, protecting our cells.

4. Nuts: Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans are a good source of L-arginine which gets converted into nitric oxide. Walnuts also contain a plant-based omega 3 fat that’s necessary for a healthy cardiovascular system.

5.  Leafy Greens: Fresh spinach, kale, collards, arugula, mustard greens, as well as herbs like parsley and oregano contain high amounts of chlorophyll, which is purifying to the blood and helps to increase blood flow. Some, like kale, also contain essential fatty acids like omega 3 and 6. They’re a rich source of vitamins, including the fat-soluble A and K, and C, as well as minerals that keep the body rich in alkaline and improve energy levels.

6. Seeds: Seeds such as pumpkin and sesame are rich in zinc, as well as additional essential nutrients.
