Yes, the topic you are about to read may sound cheesy but we can tell you for sure its real.
Sex is a serious business, and you need to prepare for it each time.
However, your choice of food may determine your performance level.
Aphrodisiacs are things that stimulate sexual desire or arouse
excitement within the body. Different kinds of foods or drinks can
jump-start this libido, and really spice things up in the bedroom. So,
whether it’s fuelling sexual desire, suppressing performance anxiety,
maintaining energy, or reducing any bloating that may kill the mood, these are some foods you should eat before sex.
Chocolate has long been thought to be an aphrodisiac. In the 1600s, it was considered such a powerful one that religious leaders
banned monks and nuns from consuming any! It contains the chemical PEA –
phenylethylamine, which creates a rush or feeling of euphoria. It
causes the release of dopamine,
which is the same chemical that is released during all sorts of “highs”
including orgasms, gambling, and drug use. Dark chocolate contains the
most. Other foods that also increase PEA are apples, tomatoes, almonds,
and cheddar cheese. The mere scent of almonds is supposed to increase women’s sex drive – with the added bonus of potentially improving heart health.
Avocados, Asparagus and Bananas
A weird trio, don’t you think? Some foods might be considered sexy
because they make us think erotic thoughts. Asparagus and avocados
resemble certain male attributes, so they might be an indirect way to
make your lover think of sex. Avocados are rich in stress-relieving B
vitamins, but they’re also a source of mono-unsaturated fat, which has
been shown to aid blood flow to the entire body. Avocados contain
nutrients, such as potassium, which help in boosting libido. They’re so high in folic acid,
they can quickly break down protein and give you that immediate,
long-lasting, and healthy energy boost you need for sexual stamina.
Asparagus is one of the best sources of folate in our diets. This B
vitamin helps maintain levels of oxygen in our blood and produces
healthy cells. It’s known to aid in focus, energy, and alertness. To
make sure your brain is mentally in the game, cultivate a keen sense of
focus by loading up on folate.
Banana flowers have a rather phallic shape, which might be why some
people consider them aphrodisiacs. Bananas, themselves, are thought to
be important for sex hormone production because they contain high levels of potassium and B vitamins.
Increasing research has suggested that watermelon can act like a
natural Viagra in the body. This, according to researchers, is because
of a nutrient called citrulline, which boosts nitric oxide and relaxes
the blood vessels, mirroring the effects of drugs used to treat erectile
dysfunction. And of course, women directly benefit too — any time
increased circulation comes into the picture, we’re talking more energy
and more pleasure-inducing endorphins.
Ginger and ginseng increase circulation – ginseng, in particular, is
thought to increase libido by exciting the central nervous system.
Cinnamon and nutmeg are also rumoured to stimulate sexual feelings. Some
additives are supposed to improve the taste of semen – cardamom,
peppermint, lemon and pineapple, for example, while garlic and onions
are thought to cause it to taste unpleasant.
Pumpkin seeds are nutritional superstars. You can thank their sources
of zinc and magnesium: two essential minerals are shown to boost
testosterone levels, especially when combined. The magnesium,
specifically, decreases inflammation in blood vessels, which then
increases blood flow and, subsequently, arousal. The seeds are also a
rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids that have been shown to boost
prostaglandin-hormone-like substances that play a key role in libido.
You’ll find you’ll be able to keep your sexual stamina up, if you’re not
trying to fake it.
