Now while this may sound surprising, simply knowing which things to eat can take your sexual endurance off the charts. So if you’re planning to wow your lover the next time you get between the sheets, here are some of the best libido-boosting fares you should load up on as soon as you can…
Avocados aren’t just great for guacamole.
Considered by the ancient Aztecs as a fertility booster, avocados are extremely high in potassium and folic acid. These natural chemicals won’t just improve the production of testosterone in the body, but will also raise your endurance when doing, you know, a certain kind of “strenuous exercise.” Go for avocados that are plump and don’t have soft spots to get the most flavor out of them.
Don’t throw away the pumpkin seeds.
Make it a point to save those pumpkin seeds the next time you’re baking a pie or making a stew. Apart from being packed with zinc that can boost your sexual drive, these seeds are also high in niacin and vitamins B, C, E and K. Gather them on a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Coat them with a bit of olive oil and put in the oven until they turn brown. These roasted pumpkin seeds pair nicely with your favorite beer, too.
Be muy caliente by eating chilies.
Capsaicin is the natural compound that makes chili peppers spicy. Apart from giving your tongue a tingling burn with every bite, it also improves blood flow in your body that makes achieving a stable erection a breeze. Studies show that regularly consuming chilies also helps raise the body’s metabolism rate and keep the excess weight off as well.
Garlic ups your sex drive every time.
Now while garlic may not be the first thing that pops in your head when you think about aphrodisiacs, it’s actually one of the most effective ingredients that can raise your libido through the roof if eaten regularly. A compound in garlic called allicin promotes blood flow to your penis and maintains the elasticity of tissues that stretch during erection. Just make sure you’ve got a lot of breath mints on hand to avoid making your lover turn the other way when you lean in for a kiss.
Almonds are more than ingredients for trail mix.
Now while nuts in general are loaded with essential fatty acids that make achieving a stable erection a snap, almonds are discovered to have the highest concentration among all of them. You can use these crunchy delights as toppings for desserts or as delicious snacks when roasted with spices.
