Eating the Right Foods to Boost Your Libido

Posted by on April 21, 2019 in Food, Drink & Nutrition, Health with 0 Comments

All humans want a life that's pleasurable, right? That includes, of course, sexual pleasure. Over the years, humans have researched several ways to boost their sexual experiences, including by eating the right foods. Scientists have worked for years to learn which foods to eat to boost libido and improve stamina and sexual performance.

The Best Foods for a Stamina Boost

One thing that may help boost your sexual stamina is a heart-healthy diet, as this can improve your circulation. Better circulation can improve sexual response in men and women alike, and of course, enhance general stamina. This is especially true for erectile response in men.

For a healthy heart, and by extension, a healthy sex life, you should eat a diet that's rich in the following circulation-boosting foods:

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Fiber
  • Whole grains
  • Healthy oils such as olive oil or sunflower oil
  • Nuts
  • Seafood
  • Legumes

People who follow this diet also have a much lower risk of metabolic syndrome, which is a risk factor for erectile dysfunction. Men with metabolic syndrome are almost twice as likely as men without metabolic syndrome to experience erectile dysfunction.

Libido-Boosting Foods

Libido-boosting foods are often referred to as aphrodisiacs. They are named this because of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love. Take oysters, for example. Often considered to be a powerful aphrodisiac, they could boost the libido due to high zinc content. Zinc, a mineral we need to function well day to day, also helps to regulate levels of testosterone, an essential male sex hormone.

Of course, oysters aren’t the only food you can eat to get a zinc boost, and they are definitely an acquired taste! You may want to try these instead:

  • Lobster
  • Red meats
  • Crab
  • Cereal (fortified with zinc, of course)
  • Pine nuts

Other possible libido-boosting foods include fenugreek, maca, and ginseng (Asian and American). More scientific research is needed to prove the impact of these foods, but you may find they offer a welcome boost.

Erection-Maintaining Foods

Erectile dysfunction affects tens of millions of men across the United States. Contributing factors include problems with circulation, nerve damage, stress and anxiety, or side effects of medications.

Flavonoid-rich foods can reduce the risk of ED. Fruits are great sources, but other foods include:

  • Hot peppers
  • Red wine
  • Cocoa products
  • Tea

Other foods that aren't rich in flavonoids, but that have been proven to help with ED include beets (rich in nitrates), watermelon (rich in i-citrulline) and foods that contain nitric oxide.

Other Factors

It's worth noting that while the right nutrition can definitely help with sexual performance, there are lots of other factors that can have an impact. If you're stressed, for example, this can limit your libido, or you may just not be in the mood for a while. That's okay, too!
