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.
Cocoa has more antioxidants than green tea or red wine. 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?
Fish is among the foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids are the building blocks of sex hormones in men and women and help fight the buildup of plaque in the arteries, thereby improving circulation and increasing sensation. Omega-3 fatty acids help with sexual response, by helping to raise dopamine levels in the brain that trigger arousal.
Some other Omega-3 fatty acid rich food are mackerel, wild salmon, halibut, and sardines as well as flaxseed, nuts (ground nuts, cashew nuts) and oils (olive, soybean).
Warning! Don’t chew garlic minutes before a kissing session, you will ruin everything. But garlic contains allicin, which is thought to increase blood flow to sexual organs. You will need to chew garlic regularly to achieve the desired results. Garlic also increases nitric oxide production, which is a chemical in the body responsible for healthy erections.
Carrots contain high concentration of Vitamin A, which stimulates the epithelial tissue throughout the body, and this means also sexual organs.
Nuts e.g. pine nuts, ground nuts, cashew nuts are rich in zinc which stimulate the production of testosterone, and enhance sperm production in men. Nuts are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help prevent plaque accumulation in the arteries and improve blood flow throughout the body (including to the genitals).
Dates are fruits that are loaded with numerous vitamins and minerals that greatly improve physical stamina and thus sexual health.
Some nutritional suppliments are also available for feeding and powering the sex engine e.g. Moringa oleifera and Mondia whitei and herbs like Gingko Biloba, Ginseng among others. A future article will cover their usage and precautions since they are not to be used without proper knowledge about them. They are just too powerful and misuse could also be dangerous.
Feeding for sex may also be tailored to cover specific areas e.g. attain harder erections, improve sperm count, cure mild erectile dysfunction, combat women’s low libido etc
