Natural Viagra: Foods that Boost Libido – Part 3

November 7, 2011

natural viagraI have already written two articles on the exciting topic of natural Viagra. In these two articles, I mentioned that there is a direct link between the food you eat, and your performance level in the bedroom. Thus far, I have outlined ten different foods that boost libido and help increase sex drive. These foods are readily available at your local grocery store, so I encourage you to include them in your diet. In today’s article, I will reveal five additional foods that boost libido. Here they are:

Garlic

Garlic can leave a strong smell in your mouth, but its libido boosting potential is worth the temporary bad breath. I highly recommend garlic to couples who have been in a long term relationship, and do not mind a garlic smelling breath from their partners. Garlic is classified among foods that boost libido, because it contains high levels of allicin, an ingredient that is known to increase the flow of blood through your genitals. The higher the blood flow, the stronger the male’s erection. If the strong smell of the garlic is a deterrent, you should consider taking garlic capsules instead.

Maca

For those who do not know what maca is, I suggest you research it further. Maca has long been used to boost libido and overall energy. It has been recognized in many cultures as an aphrodisiac, and a natural way of enhancing sexual performance. As such, maca is also known as Peruvian Ginseng, even though it doesn’t belong to the Ginseng family. Maca comes in three main types: red, yellow, and black. Based on scientific studies, black maca appears to deliver the best results, as it augments sperm count significantly. The yellow and red maca have less notable effects.

Pumpkin Seeds

According to research, pumpkin seeds are excellent natural libido boosters. Contrary to garlic, pumpkin seeds have a delicious taste, and they add both texture and a nutrient rich flavor to many dishes. Pumpkin seeds help boost libido because they contain a very high level of zinc, helping prevent testosterone deficiency in the body. As men age, their natural production of zinc diminishes gradually. This decrease in zinc production is often followed by lackluster sexual performances, and in some cases, prostate enlargement. The zinc contained in the pumpkin seeds helps increase sperm volume. Women should also consume pumpkin seeds, as these seeds foster vaginal lubrication, and increase female libido.

Dark Chocolate

Have you ever wondered why women are big fans of dark chocolate? Dark chocolate is rich in theobromine and phenylethylamine. Theobromine is an alkaloid that is similar to caffeine, while phenylethylamine is a chemical that creates the euphoric feeling of being in love. Moreover, dark chocolate contains high levels of antioxidants, great for a healthier immune system.

Chilies

Chilies are also part of foods that boost libido, because they contain capsaicin, a chemical known to release endorphins. Endorphins are hormones directly linked to sex drive and libido.

Foods that Boost Libido – Final Words

Foods that boost libido are neither expensive nor scarce. If you include the majority of these foods in your daily diet, you should see a notable increase in sex drive and overall happiness. Besides the five foods I’ve noted in this article, there are many more foods that increase libido. You should be aware of all of them.

Best of luck.
