Boost Your Libido with 10 Sexy Superfoods

April 18th, 2024

For centuries, cultures around the world have touted various libido boosters found in nature.

Over time, the effectiveness of these libido enhancers has mostly been debunked by research. However, there are a handful that actually contain nutrients that can support sex drive and sexual function.

Read on to find out about ten superfoods that might add some zing to your sex life.

Oysters

Since the beginning of recorded history, raw oysters have been a reputed aphrodisiac.

Today, most people consider this notion to be the stuff of legends. Except…there is some real science behind this particular legend…because oysters are high in zinc.

The zinc content in oysters is relevant because zinc boosts testosterone production.

And testosterone impacts sexual desire and performance…for both men and women.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains powerful antioxidants called flavonoids. Flavonoids can improve circulation and promote relaxation…which makes it easier to get in the mood and have enjoyable sex.

Dark chocolate also contains phenylethylamine. Phenylethylamine stimulates endorphin production, resulting in enhanced pleasure and arousal.

Avocado

This delicious fruit contains large amounts of vitamin E, a nutrient that helps to support hormone production and circulation.

Avocado also contains high quantities of healthy fats. These fats support healthy levels of “good” cholesterol, which is essential for hormone synthesis.

Bananas

Bananas contain high quantities of potassium, vitamin B6, and manganese…nutrients that are important for energy production and hormone regulation.

Bananas also contain an enzyme called bromelain, which may help to increase testosterone levels.

Watermelon

Watermelon contains citrulline, an amino acid that can improve blood flow by increasing nitric oxide levels in the body. And blood flow is essential for arousal and sexual function.

Almonds

Almonds are packed with important nutrients like zinc and selenium that can support reproductive health and hormone production. Almonds also contain arginine, an amino acid that enhances blood flow and promotes relaxation.

Try dark chocolate-covered almonds to benefit from two sexy superfoods at once.

Asparagus

Asparagus is rich in folate, a B vitamin that increases histamine production. Histamine promotes blood vessel dilation and blood flow, with both being essential for arousal and sexual function.

Ginseng

Eastern cultures have used this herb for centuries to enhance libido and sexual performance. But does it really work? Recent research suggests that ginseng may increase testosterone levels and improve erectile function.

Maca

Maca root is from a Peruvian plant that has a longstanding reputation for its libido-enhancing properties. It’s also another ancient sexual remedy that may have a basis in science. In particular, Maca is believed to balance hormone levels, increase sexual desire, and improve stamina.

Fatty Fish

Salmon, mackerel, trout, and other fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for hormone production and circulation.

Omega-3 fatty acids may also improve mood and reduce inflammation, two factors that can influence libido.

Super Foods Can Help, But They May Not Be Enough

A healthy sex drive has everything to do with healthy hormone levels. Adding these superfoods to your diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly can all be beneficial in this regard.

But if these steps aren’t enough (which is often the case as people age), hormone replacement therapy can help to make up the deficit.
