More men are facing the problem of low sex drive than popular culture ever stops to realize. The traditional perception is that any man will have sex any time anywhere and will find no problems igniting the engines red-hot, so to speak. It is such a hidden problem and it accounts for quite a number of divorces that are going on even at this very moment.
According to Private Practicing Nutritionist, Nyombi Ivan Wycliffe in Kampala, it often happens that you might be having low sex drive or libido due to lifestyle related factors and improper diet. A few changes in the food you eat can bring about a great change in your libido and make you enjoy great sex without the use of synthetic drugs like Viagra.
It is essential for you to understand that your overall health is important for a good sex drive and that your male libido does not act in isolation.
The first and the most important aspect for having great sex is good blood circulation. Having good circulation is critical for getting rock hard erections. When you get sexually excited your brain sends signals to the body to send/allow more blood to the genitals. As such when the circulation is good, the blood flow to the genitals can be enhanced instantly leading to stronger erections. Therefore it is important that you eat foods that boost blood circulation.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to boost your libido, energy, and passion without relying on anything artificial, chemicals or even illegal drugs. Nature has given us plenty of commonly-known foods that can help.
Tomatoes – They contain powerful antioxidant that boosts prostrate health, which improves virility in men. They are also delicious raw, in soup, as sauce, and more. They are best eaten raw.
Walnuts and Almonds – Nuts and whole grains, in general, contain argenine. Argenine is important to blood flow, especially during arousal. Nuts, seeds, and grains are also rich in essential fatty acids which are crucial in the production of hormones for both men and women.
Peppers – Capsaicin, the compound in peppers that give them their taste, increases heart rate, dilates blood vessels, and releases endorphins. They literally spice up your love life. Just don’t go sprinkling cayenne on your special someone though.
Garlic – These overly fragrant cloves may not seem like the best thing to eat for passion, but the allicin in garlic, onions, shallots, and leeks increases blood flow and keeps the heart healthy for sexual activities. If you’re worried about the smell, use it well before things get intimate.
Ginger – This spice increases blood flow and testosterone production. Even the scent alone is enough to send blood flowing. It, like peppers, can have a warming effect on the body.
Bananas – Bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins which boost energy levels. They also contain the enzyme Bromelain which can be found in pineapple too and gives men a boost to the libido. B complex vitamins help in reducing stress, which is a big libido killer. Make sure you get more of these to get better and firmer erections. Other examples include; Peanuts, Dairy, Green Vegetables, Soybeans and Seeds.
Avocado – This buttery fruit is rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin B6—both increase male hormone production. Avocado also contains potassium, which helps regulate the thyroid gland in women, a gland directly tied to energy and reaction to hormones.
Asparagus [Doodo] – These suggestive stalks are rich in folate, a B vitamin linked to a healthy sex drive.
Pumpkin Seeds – The often discarded seeds of this orange gourd are rich in zinc, which keeps the male sex organs healthy and productive. They also taste pretty fantastic and are a healthier snack option.
Watermelon – This sweet, summery melon contains lycopene and helps relax the blood vessels to improve blood flow.
Beans and Legumes – Beans, peas, and lentils contain zinc. Zinc is important for adrenal function and is tied to our sense of smell so those pheromones can flow more freely between you and your love.
Libido naturally lags when the body isn’t getting all the nutrition it needs and it must focus on self-preservation over reproduction.
Deficiencies in vitamins and minerals can create fatigue, depression, and low energy levels that get in the way of passion. Eating well, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising regularly will also make a big difference in your sex life. Turn back to nature and the foods you know.
