So is it true that certain foods can help your sex life? Lets investigate…
Oysters are the classic food that are supposed to be an aphrodisiac, but why? They are packed full of zinc, a major component in the production of testosterone. They also contain D-aspartic acid a compound that releases sex hormones such as testosterone and oestrogen. So slurp them down and see if it works, I have to be honest they have never done much for me.
The next one that may be a surprise is pomegranate. Apparently pomegranate juice can help combat problems with not being able to get an erection. It is thought this may be due to the antioxidants that the juice is packed with. It appears these antioxidants can help with the circulatory function.
How about garlic? Its true, as long as you both have it of course so you can get over the obvious down sides. Garlic contains something called allicin, which increases both blood flow as well as libido. Not sure whether garlic bread with your lamb bhuna will do it though.
Pumpkin seeds are definitely good for us guys if you are hoping to be a father soon, again they are absolutely stuffed full of zinc, so have been show to hugely increase the sperm count.
Brazil nuts, full of selenium, which apparently prevents damage of sperm cells and helps to promote healthy swimmers.
Honey, of course the origin of honey moon is quite well known. Honey is rich in B vitamins, again needed to make testosterone, and as with the honey moon from Persian times, when newly weds would feast on honey, provides a steady release of energy and stamina… always helpful!
