Health and nutrition occupies a central point of our lives and that includes sex life. For the body to perform its functionalities to the maximum, it must be healthy. Let us examine in summary some food types that can power our sex engine to the full.
This fruit is rich in Vitamin B6, which helps produce serotonin, a hormone that induces a good feeling in someone. Avocados are also loaded with vitamin E,which enhances circulation and potassium (which helps regulate a woman's thyroid gland), two elements that help increase libido in both men and women. Avocados also contain high levels of folic acid, which helps metabolize proteins, thus giving you more energy.
Banana is a fruit that contains the bromelain enzyme that increases libido and reverse impotence in men. (Now you know why Buganda men are so respected by their women!) Also, they are good sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body's overall energy levels.
Eggs are rich in vitamins B6 and B5. These help balance hormone levels and fight stress, two things that are crucial for a healthy libido. Eating raw chicken eggs just prior to sex is said to heighten libido and maximize energy levels. But all bird and fish eggs contain vitamin B6 and B5.
To some ancient cultures, Eggs are also a symbol of fertility and rebirth.
- Water melon
Water melon, according to research carried in Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center at Texas A&M University, has a Viagra-like effect upon the blood system. This cool refreshing fruit contains citrulline amino acid. Citruline is good for the cardiovascular system and helps relax the blood vessels and that may also increase sex drive.

It also contains a stimulating chemical known as phenylethlamine, a chemical with an amphetamine-like affect that temporarily mimics feelings of falling in love and the sense of excitement and well being. The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study that found, women who enjoyed a piece of chocolate every day had a more active and exciting sex life than those who didn't. After all, romantic women love chocolate, don’t they?
