Did you know, “proper” (I don’t like that word) nutrition can reignite your sex drive?

Do you feel the pressure to “spice things up” in your love life because Valentine’s Day is around the corner?

What if I told you about the foods that will help you “rise to the occasion”?

These foods are known to increase energy, increase blood flow, support your endocrine/hormone system. You will want to focus on foods that supply magnesium and zinc for sperm and testosterone production. Many of these spices, herbs, and foods can increase your pheromone production—the hormone that makes you attractive to the other sex.

Can improve your sex life by aiding blood flow. Ginger is very heart-healthy!

Bananas

Are high in potassium and counteract foods high in sodium. Salty foods make you bloated and diminish blood flow to the genitals, which can make it more difficult to reach orgasm.

Red Wine

Contains a rich antioxidant profile that triggers nitric oxide production in the blood which relaxes artery walls and increases blood flow “down there.” Consuming in moderation is best.
