Superfoods to Increase your Libido

Girl Covered in Chocolate

A strong libido is something every man wants – and their women too! Many things affect our sex drive – age, health, stress, hormonal changes, and medication. Some of these are out of our control, but what we put into our bodies is. The saying you are what you eat is true. If you eat crap, you’ll feel like crap.

Superfoods can increase your sex drive and stave off impotence. Most of these foods contain vitamins and minerals that pump up your testosterone, an important hormone in healthy male and female sex drives. You may not like all of these foods, or they may clash with your diet, but there should be something for everyone on this list.

Bananas
This phallic fruit contains the enzyme Bromelain and B vitamins, ingredients to enhance your libido and provide energy.

Sweet Potatoes
Full of beta-carotene which your body transforms into vitamin A, helping to produce sex hormones.

Celery
This wondrous vegetable boosts androsterone, an aphrodisiac found in male perspriation.

Avocados
This sexy fruit contains high levels of folic acid which gives the body sexual energy. A high content of B6 acts as a hormone regulator.

Bee Pollen
Pollen’s role in nature is to fertilize, so it’s no surprise that bee pollen has the ability to boost sperm count. Get busy!

Spinach
Magnesium aplenty in this leafy green. This mineral helps produce testosterone, dopamine, and epinephrin. It also contains Folate, a B vitamin that helps in cell production.

Pomegranate
This fruit is full of nitric oxide which opens blood vesssels and increases blood flow throughout the entire body. If you find eating this fruit tedius, buy the juice in concentrate.

Eggs
Rich in vitamins B5 and B6, which help balance hormone levels and lower stress.

Fish
Full of omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA and EPA. These help increase dopamine levels in the brain that are connected to arousal. Shellfish contains zinc which helps produce testosterone. If you don’t like the taste, try a fish oil supplement.

Dark chocolate
Not only does chocolate taste good it  also contains phenylethylamine – a compound that releases the same endorphins triggered by sex that increase the feelings of attraction between two people. No wonder so many women love this sweet!

Pumpkin Seeds
This is one of the few foods that contain zinc, vital for testosterone production in men. They also contain the omega-3 fatty acids.
