Sex drives ebb and flow – sometimes you just can’t get enough, and other times it’s the last thing on your mind. This is all completely normal. We all have our own rhythm and needs when it comes to sexual satisfaction. Often, it’s the little things that have the biggest impact on how ‘in the mood’ we’re feeling – feeling sluggish or tired can have a big effect on how sexual we feel.
If you’re looking for a little boost, you can use food to wake up your sexual appetite. Check out our sexy shopping list for foods that can help to get you in the mood.
Strawberries and raspberries
Packed full of zinc, strawberries and raspberries are great for getting you going. The Zinc can help with both vaginal self-lubrication and sperm production.
Great for sperm count and virality (nuts, sperm…there’s a joke in there somewhere). Plus they’re a great source of nutrients which will help you feel strong and healthy, which boosts your mood and gets your juices flowing…
Get a serotonin and endorphin boost from chocolate (dark chocolate’s best). These happy hormones will lift your mood. And better moods can contribute to an elevated sex drive.
Get a beautiful boost of folic acid and B6, which will super charge your libido. Folic acid is an energy source and B6 is a hormone stabiliser. So avocados not only help get you feeling frisky but give you the energy for bedroom antics too.
Full of amino acids and arginine, eating watermelon can contribute towards better vascular health. And that’s great news for improved erections, blood flow and increased libido.
Like watermelon, the arginine in almonds can contribute towards maintaining erections. And the healthy fats and protein contribute to overall wellness and energy. Better energy and health can increase sexual appetite.
Considered a natural aphrodisiac, a sprinkle of saffron can boost your sex drive.
Keeping on top of your hydration can really improve your sex life. Hydration is key to feeling healthier, more awake, and aids digestion which will have you feeling even sexier.
So get snacking, and treat your body like the sexy temple it is.
