LIBIDO-BOOSTING FOODS To Spice Up Your Drive

Libido-Boosting Foods to Spice Up Your Drive
@couplegoals
Food is medicine. We can’t stress that enough here at Amé. For us, it’s never about eating less, or very little, or stressing about eating 100% clean 100% of the time. That’s exhausting, stressful, and just not practical. We believe in well-rounded diets that allow us to live a little. Anything in moderation, right? That’s the key.
However, food still holds power — especially whole, nutrient-rich, organic, natural foods. Food can prevent disease, help heal sickness, promote longevity and a youthful appearance, and even make us feel a little extra “in the mood.” When we are feeling low energy and low confidence, we turn to food to help us turn things around — and the same applies as a little help for a low libido. Here are some of our favorite tasty things that can help us kick up our sex drive when our libido is in a lull.

Watermelon 

This juicy fruit is ultra hydrating (hello, glowy skin), contains even more lycopene than tomatoes, and is also a great source of L-citrulline. Both of these phytonutrients have been shown to have Viagra-like effects when it comes to relaxing blood vessels so that blood has a smoother time flowing to, ahem, certain regions. Better blood flow to our nether regions means enhanced excitement, and an easier time reaching climax for both parties.

Oysters

We’ve always heard that oysters are an aphrodisiac, and may have attributed that to its delicate and briny soft flesh or anatomically feminine look, but it’s much more than that. Oysters are nature’s highest form of zinc, and this nutrient has been shown to improve libido and sex drive for those with ED issues. Get this sexy treat for your next date night in for a good shuck at home.

Chocolate

We’re all in luck to find out that this delicious, antioxidant-loaded treat is indeed an aphrodisiac. It’s shown to boost not only sex drive, but pleasure and satisfaction too. The darker the better, so skip the creamy, sugary options.

Spinach

Maybe Pop-eye was really onto something with this powerful green: It’s rich in magnesium, a necessary mineral that not only helps us relax (after all, we gotta chill to get comfortably in the mood), but also helps to decrease inflammation in the blood vessels. We’re all hyper-aware that blood flow is the main character in the movie that is sexual arousal, so upping your intake of this superfood can help us in a multitude of ways, including between the sheets.

Hot Peppers

Spicy foods, like hot peppers, increase metabolism and stimulate endorphins, aka our feel-good hormones. This makes us sweat, plumps up our skin and lips, and quickens our heart rate. Sound sexy yet? And of course, all of this leads to improved blood flow … You get the picture.

Ginger

Studies show that ginger improves artery health, and blood flow is really our theme here. It also promotes digestion and immunity, which are vital health factors for a healthy, sexy life. Try a ginger shot, grate it into your salads, or blend into your smoothies a few times a week.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain myosin, an amino acid known to be essential for muscular contractions, which are a major component of the all-powerful female orgasm. They also impact prostate health — so any gentlemen readers, stock up! Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of tryptophan, which helps with the production of serotonin in the brain — another feel-good hormone to aid in our feel-good bedroom activities.

If low libido is a serious issue, we always recommend you talk to your doctor. However, these delicious, whole, healthy foods can deliver a major punch, especially when heeded regularly. They are packed with nutritional value of all kinds, so start here and see what happens … it’s time to snack your way to satisfaction.
