Foods that improve sexual performance should be included in every healthy adults’ diet.
Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body. The relationship between hormones and cells mirrors that of keys and doors (hormones being the keys). Nutrients and minerals give us what we need to synthesise every hormone in the body from insulin to dopamine and everything in between. What happens when someone that you live with loses their keys? They can’t get in. Right. Make sense? Good.
Add these foods to your diet to help support your sexual hormones!
Walnuts improve the shape, movement and vitality of sperm in men.
Strawberries and raspberries have high levels of zinc, which is beneficial for both male and female genders. For women, zinc makes it easier for the body to prepare for sex, hormonally, while in men, it is needed to control healthy levels of testosterone.
Avocados are full of folic acid and vitamin B6. Folic acid fills you with energy and b6 stabilizes your hormones.
Watermelon can boost libido and strengthen the erections in men. It is abundant in l-citrulline, which is an amino acid that increases nitric oxide for more vascularity.
Saffron is a natural aphrodisiac that will improve your sex drive as well as your sexual performance. It is rich in zinc and other essential minerals that help increase blood flow to sexual organs, boosts mood and is also a proven anti-depressant.
Dark chocolate will make your brain release serotonin (the happy hormone). It doesn’t necessarily help improve your actual libido, but it will improve your mood in preparation for the big moment!
Steak is full of (guess what!) zinc (!), vitamin, iron and protein. All of which are needed for men and women to keep up healthy libidos.
I hope that these foods that help improve sex and sexual performance bring come
good lovin’ into your life!
