You don't have to rely on pharmaceuticals to pump your desire and sexual health. There are plenty of foods out there that are easily added to any diet that will give you a helping hand.

(Keep in mind we are talking about diet, not aphrodisiacs – although sometimes they can overlap).

Here are some examples…

 

1. MEAT

Yes, we want to reduce how much red meat we eat and take things in moderation. However, having a variety in your diet can give you carnitine and L-arginine (which improve blood flow), which is critical for sexual performance and satisfaction in both men and women. Zinc also aids in testosterone levels.

2. OYSTERS

Another source of zinc. You can get a boost in hormone production through oysters, clams, scallops, lobster, crab, etc.

3. SALMON

The all-powerful omega-3 fatty acids! It helps prevent the buildup of plaque in the arteries and therefore keep the blood pumping. Other options are tuna or halibut. However, if you are at risk of prostate cancer, best avoid this food.

4. NUT AND SEEDS

They pack a similar punch as the benefits of meat – with zinc and L-arginine. Try integrating these into your daily snacks…

  • walnuts (also great for omega-3s)
  • pumpkin seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • pecans
  • hazelnuts
  • peanuts

5. GROUND FLAX SEEDS

It’s not a seed you can munch on like the ones above. But it’s totally worth buying a bag. It’s a superfood rich in antioxidants and lignans as well as having chemicals with antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer properties.

This superfood is known for its rich antioxidant properties and for increasing blood flow to the sexual organs. Flax seeds keep you vibrant, as they contain lignans. These are estrogen-like chemicals that have antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer properties.

  • Add to a smoothie or cereal
  • Add a sprinkle to your salad
  • Mix in with meats
  • Mix with mustard or mayo on sandwiches
  • Put on fruit and yogurt
  • Use to thicken soups and sauces

6. APPLES

No, I’m NOT going to use the old, worn-out saying about doctors. What I will say is “quercetin.” It’s an antioxidant with many positives. In sex, it can control the symptoms of prostatitis and interstitial cystitis – which can cause pain and discomfort that utterly kills the libido.

If you’re sick of apples, you can also try onions, dark grapes, cherries, and berries.

7. GARLIC

Screw the bad breath! Garlic is an amazing food. It prevents high blood pressure and cholesterol as well as heart disease. It’s great for blood flow and immune aiding compounds.

8. RED WINE

This one is no surprise – but a glass or two of red wine can help people get in a frisky mood. It increases libido and vaginal wetness. It also contains quercetin. However, no more than a couple of glasses or it will have a negative effect.
