If you want to put some sizzle back into your sex life, food can help you set the mood and fuel your fire…
What female wouldn’t want to eat food or foods that are good for women’s health?
Fast food or health food?
Is there nothing better than a romantic candle lit, home-cooked dinner for your libido?
Healthy food with food recipes to indulge your R-rated senses helping you to turn-up the heat…
“There’s a growing body of evidence that some of the vitamins and components in foods can enhance sexual function and sexual experience,” says Jennifer R. Berman, MD, the director of the Berman Women’s Wellness Center, in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Here are some of the aphrodisiac foods (and my own favorite food recipes) that have been major players for our “female libido“.
Arugula has been heralded as an arousal aid since the first century.
Today, research reveals the trace minerals and antioxidants packed into dark, leafy greens are essential for women libido…
As well as health because they help block absorption of some of the environmental contaminants thought to negatively impact our libido.
The Aztecs referred to avocados as, ahem, testicles, because of their physical shape.
But the scientific reason why avocados make sense as an aphrodisiac is they’re rich in unsaturated fats and low in saturated fat, making them good for your heart and arteries.
Anything that keeps the heart beating strong helps keep blood flowing to all the right places.
Topping my list of feisty foods, almonds have long been linked to increased passion, act as a sexual stimulant, and aid with fertility.
Like asparagus (another one of my favorite sexy foods), almonds are nutrient-dense and rich in several trace minerals important for sexual health and reproduction.
Almonds contain zinc, selenium and vitamin E.
“Zinc helps enhance libido and sexual desire,” says Dr. Berman. “We don’t really understand the mechanisms behind it, but we know it works.”
Figs are funny-shaped fruits with a long history of being a fertility booster, and they make an excellent aphrodisiac because they’re packed with soluble fiber and insoluble fiber.
Why is this important for your heart health?
High-fiber foods help fill you up, not out, so it’s easier to get abs with sexy bottom line or flat belly.
Strawberries say it all with the color red which is known to help stoke the fire!
A 2008 study found that men find women sexier if they’re wearing red, as opposed to cool colors such as blue or green.
Strawberries are also an excellent source of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps ward off birth defects in women.
According to a University of California, Berkley study, may be tied to high sperm counts in men.
Why not eat some dark-chocolate-dipped strawberries?
While we’re on the subject, there’s a reason we give chocolate on Valentine’s Day because chocolate is full of libido boosting methylxanthines.
Seafood, despite their slippery texture, oysters may be one of the most well-known aphrodisiac.
Oysters are also one of the best sources of libido-boosting zinc.
But other types of seafood can also act as aphrodisiacs. Oily fish like wild salmon and herring contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for a healthy heart.
Citrus or any member of this tropical fruit family is super-rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and folic acid—all of which are essential.
Enjoy a romantic salad that mixes-it-up with citrus, like pink grapefruit or mandarin oranges, and why not use a dressing made with lemon and lime?
