Everything that can be summed up as good sex depends to a great extent on your body’s blood circulation, which is made or marred by the food that you consume. Food that facilitates the proper pumping of blood in the body adds to your sexual prowess.
The following is a list of 10 foods to boost your sex drive hence enhance your libido. These sex-friendly platters will help you reach the ‘Big O’ more often.
1. Green Leafy Vegetables
Believe me or not when i say that spinach is a natural Viagra. It is proven that green leafy vegetables have their own sexual benefits. The reason is clear, green leafy veggies are rich in Vitamin E, one of the major sex hormones producing catalyst in the body. Green leafy vegetables are also rich in manganese responsible for producing female hormone estrogen. It is proven that magnesium deficiency affects woman’s fertility levels. If we talk about men, green leafy vegetables contains zinc which is vital for sperm production and libido.
Rich in vitamin B, bananas are great to convert carbohydrates into energy which is good for bedroom life. Bananas also improve the body’s ability to produce sex hormones i.e. testosterone. I would suggest to have bananas 1-2 hours before the action.
3. Natural Seeds
Many natural seeds like soybeans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax-seeds or chickpeas Seeds helps in improving sexual hormones. One tablespoon of flax-seed a day can increase the testosterone levels in our body as they are highly rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. If Omega 3 fatty acid level drops in the body, it directly affects hormone levels which further lead to poor sex drive. Who can deny the benefits of pumpkin seeds which contain zine responsible for producing testosterone.
4. Olive Oil
Olive Oil is an answer to orgasm problems in women, which triggers testosterone hormone production. A lack of this hormone can lead to lack of desire and sexual pleasure and an inability to achieve an orgasm. So, be liberal with monounsaturated fats like olive oil.
5. Sea Food
If you are a non-vegetarian or love oyster & fish then sea food will help you enhance your sex drive. Fish is highly rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which helps your metabolism and keep you hale & hearty. It is also proven that these enhances dopamine hormone which lights up the brain’s pleasure system. Apart from dopamine it also includes Vitamin B responsible for fertility. On the other hand Oysters are the richest source of zinc which enhances the prostate grand thus boost testosterone production in men.
6. Dark chocolates
If you believe on studies than you will be amused to know that women eating dark chocolates daily are having sexually satisfying lives than those who don’t eat dark chocolates. There is a scientific reason behind this study. It states that Phenethylamine (a chemical present in chocolates) keeps the body relaxed and pleasurably intoxicated. Dark chocolates also help in releasing stress busting serotonin, mood boosting stuff which makes human’s desire sexual contacts. It’s time to fall in love with chocolates again and forget the weight related issues for now.
7. Add Nuts In Your Diet
Including nuts in your daily diet can do wonders for your sex drive. Add walnuts, almonds, groundnuts, pistachios etc. in your daily diet to improve your energy levels & stamina. No wonder stamina is the primary factory behind satisfying sex life.
If you learn something from Arab world, then you will notice that regular use of garlic can improve your sexual prowess. Although, you have to freshen up your breath before the action.

Vitamin C rich foods are important for sexual gratifications. Human body requires vitamin C to tune the sexual organs properly. As per recent tests done in Sweden a daily dose of 500-1,000 mg of vitamin C can increase sperm quality and count. Fruits such as strawberries, kiwi or any other citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C.
10. Specific Spices
