Many of you may be wondering what you can do to change your everyday diet and help your sex-drive, testosterone level, and overall sexual health. To answer that question we have compiled a small list of popular foods that offer some big benefits!
Scallops and Oysters
Scallops are one popular shell-fish that are full of zinc. As you may or may not know, zinc is crucial for the body to maintain proper sexual health. This mineral is very important to sperm production and fertility.
So if you are experiencing potency problems or low semen volume then your zinc level may be a bit low. Working scallops into your diet could help and your testosterone level may increase also!
Oysters are the classic aphrodisiac! Just within the last few years research shows compelling evidence that consuming this shell-fish could lead to an increase in sexual hormones. Again, this is yet another food that is high in zinc which explains why it is so sexually potent!
Oysters may help increase semen production and fertility.
Almonds in particular contain a lot of vitamin E and zinc which do great things for boosting the reproductive system.
Walnuts are also a good choice as they have large amounts of vital amino acids that will help your penis by increasing the body’s blood flow.
Both of these nuts are high in monounsaturated fats which are great for helping our testosterone levels stay high!
Yes, watermelon! This juicy fruit has certain nutrients such as citrulline which is known to act as natures Viagra!
Citrulline helps relax blood vessels and assists your body’s blood flow, thereby leading to heightened sexual sensitivity and stronger erections. Researchers believe that this natural chemical may have additional benefits that are yet to be discovered.
Who doesn’t like oatmeal? Now you have a reason to eat it anytime! Oatmeal contains large amounts L-arginine which helps your body relax its blood vessels, improving blood flow and ultimately leading to better erections!
That is why so many male enhancement supplements contain L-arginine as it’s very effective in treating ED.
Stay Fit for Higher Testosterone
There is more to maintaining your physical health than just eating right, you have to stay fit as well. It’s a known fact that physical exercise helps to maintain and even boost your testosterone levels; which has many benefits including keeping your libido strong!
Foods that are Bad for Your Sex-Drive and Erections
Below is a small list of foods that are known to essentially kill your ability to perform in the bedroom. While there are certainly other foods that can hurt your libido, the following list comprises the most common and the most sexually detrimental of them all!
Studies have shown that anything fried, although typically tastes great, are libido killers. It has been shown that hydrogenated fats lower your testosterone which thereby suppresses your sex-drive. So avoid those French fries and fish sticks if you want to be able to get it up later!
While many believe that soy has a lot of health benefits, it’s not very good at helping to maintain your sex-drive. Soy is actually a strong anti-aphrodisiac for men. It’s the phytoestrogens in the soy that are the cause of various sexual issues too such as ED, infertility, and man boobs.
Gin and Tonic
We all pretty much know that too much alcohol kills your ability to perform, but there’s something more about gin and tonic. The quinine in the tonic water is a known testosterone inhibitor and too much of the stuff can really mess up your game. Drink a little red wine to get the buzz going or even a beer or two would be better than gin and tonic!
Most of us do not frequent restaurants with licorice on the menu but it is worth mentioning that this food is bad for our woody. Licorice contains something called glycyrrhetinic acid which may lower your performance drastically. The next time you are at the movies and reach for the licorice at the snack bar, think again about what might happen after the movie!
