Think eating healthy isn’t sexy?
Fruits, veggies and whole grains aren’t just for the birds; they’re for the bees, too.
According to an article on Mother Nature Network, foods that are good for your heart are also good for your sex life and the same foods that clog arteries and contribute to heart attacks also slow your roll in the hay.
Carrots, avocados, watermelon, greens (cooked without the fatback), nuts, figs, yams and spices like nutmeg and turmeric and other foods that help promote weight loss can also help boost your libido.
Further, foods with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, including, mackerel, salmon and wild salmon, enhance circulation and get blood flowing to all the critical places when you are ready to get busy.
Heavy foods like steak and greasy fried foods actually slow blood flow, which can contribute to erectile dysfunction (ED). They also contribute to obesity, another risk factor for ED.
“If the body is spending its time and energy cleaning itself constantly from these chemicals we put in it, it cannot begin to perform at its peak sexually,” Brian Clement, Ph.D., L.N.C., co-director of the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach and co-author with his wife of “7 Keys to Lifelong Sexual Vitality,” told Mother Nature Network.
“One-third of young marrieds have fertility problems today and instead of seeing men with performance problems at age 70 the way we did a few decades ago, we now see it at age 40,” Clement said. “Fifty percent of 40-year-old men cannot perform.”
And think you can compensate for a bad night with Viagra? That may not be your smartest move in the long run.
