There’s no denying that sex is a very important part of your relationship. What happens in the bedroom (or wherever you choose to get a little frisky) is one of the best ways for you and your partner to reconnect, get intimate, and gain a little confidence. Plus, you can’t help but notice the other benefits of having sex such as keeping your hormones level, releasing stress, and that it is one hell of a workout. So, if you’re looking to boost your sex life and sex drive, there are several natural aphrodisiacs to do so. Luckily one of the easiest and tastiest ways to do that is all in what you eat. Here are seven foods that’ll get you going and feeling sexy in no time.
Honey is a great aphrodisiac for both men and women’s desire. Full of Vitamin B, honey supports testosterone and estrogen production. Throw a little honey on your biscuit or in your tea to get your desires burning.
When it comes to veggies, these green trees that are high in Vitamin C will get the blood flowing to your organs, which is perfect for a hot night in the bed. Having that blood circulating throughout your body can only mean improved sensitivity in all the right areas.
Before getting it on, pop a few figs in your mouth. Your man will go crazy as these enhance the emission of pheromones. Plus, they are tremendous stimulants of fertility if you’re looking to make an addition to the family.
If you’re looking for something that’ll spice up your love life, then look no further than the obvious ingredient that makes things h-o-t, hot. Chili peppers are known for making you sweat when they’re added to your meal, so why not use that to your advantage? These spicy ingredients contain a great amount of capsaicin, which releases chemicals to increase your heart rate. An increase in heart rate simulates arousal and gets your libido going.
This tasty fruit, whether whole or as a juice, is a great option if you’re looking for a sweet way to get your sex drive up. This delicious fruit is proven to improve blood flow, which ultimately increases sensitivity and can even improve erections. Heading to the store now, ladies?
Aside from the thought of trying to look sexy with your bright red lipstick on as you take a bite of that dark chocolate, this is your chance to put your sweet tooth to work. Dark chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine, which stimulates the same hormone your body releases during sex. It triggers something in your brain that gets your body feeling all types of ways. Head to the store and opt for a vegan, low sugar dark chocolate bar rather than the full caloric options (especially the milk chocolate kind).
While you may think we’re crazy by stating watermelon is a sex booster, think again. Although it is 92% water, the leftover 8% is far from just leftovers. That little percentage is packed with all kinds of vitamins that create a sex machine. This sweet fruit contains ingredients that can increase libido and have the same effects as Viagra by relaxing blood vessels and boosting nitric oxide.
