5. Ginger, Garlic, Onions:
To really get your juices flowing, pile on the garlic, leeks, onions, scallions and chives. Known as alliums, these powerful vegetables will give you the stamina that pharmaceuticals can only promise. There are religious sects that actually ban the consumption of these humble foods because they believe they feed desire. Containing chemical compounds that stimulate blood flow to the genital area, these vegetables causes intense feelings of arousal, resulting in a strong, enduring sex.
4. Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate’s benefits are well documented, including its ability to mimic the sensation of being in love. Few people will argue with the fact that chocolate makes one feel really good.
This is not just because of the taste and texture, it’s also thanks to a chemical in chocolate, called phenylethylamine (also called the “love chemical”), believed to produce the feeling of being in love. Research has also found that women who enjoyed a piece of chocolate every day had a more active sex life than those who didn’t.
Avocados help to increase both male and female libido as they are a great source of folic acid, which assists the body in metabolizing proteins and providing energy. Avocados are also rich in vitamin B6, which improves male hormone production, and potassium, which increases female libido by helping to regulate the woman’s thyroid gland.
This refreshing summer fruit is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that helps improve blood flow to the sexual organs. It’s like Nature’s Viagra – without the side effects. L-citrulline optimizes blood flow in the body by first converting to L-arginine and then to nitric oxide, which is involved in dilation of the blood vessels. Low levels of nitric oxide are associated with mental and physical fatigue and sexual dysfunction.
Oyster is the common name for a number of different families of salt-water bivalve molluscs that live in marine or brackish habitats. Moreover, it is said Oysters are high in zinc and can help boost libido.
