It’s widely known that maintaining a healthy daily diet will have a huge impact on all facets of our health. From increasing our mental focus to becoming more physically fit, the foods we put into our bodies change how we act, feel and look. In addition to these mental and physical changes, did you know the foods we eat can also increase our sexual drive and prowess? Foods not only provide our bodies with the essential vitamins and nutrients we as human beings need to survive, but they can actually make us better lovers. One could argue that foods that increase the body’s circulation are directly related to improving ones love life, especially for men. Increased circulation leads to better erectile response in men.
With the upcoming holidays many wonder, is Turkey healthy? Here are some ‘fast facts’ on this popular main dish*:
- Dark turkey meat typically contains more vitamins and minerals than white turkey meat but also more fat and calories.
- Removing the skin of a turkey also removes much of the fat content.
- Pasture-raised turkeys typically have higher omega-3 content than factory-farmed turkeys.
Eating foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids helps to improve the functionality of the nervous system. Multivitamins and minerals help, too. Relating directly to the flow of blood into the penis, these foods can increase a man’s erectile response. Fish can also provide the body with an abundant amount of Omega-3 fatty acids. So, if you plan on wining and dining that special someone think about ordering the fish.
Another set of foods that improve circulation, resulting in better male sexual response are foods rich in L-Arginine. Foods such as granola, oatmeal, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, green vegetables, root vegetables, garlic, ginseng, dairy, soybeans, chickpeas and seeds are all high in L-Arginine. The L-Arginine in these foods has been shown to increase male sexual function.
Throughout history, humans have forever striven to enhance their sex lives. From the Romans to the Chinese, almost every civilization has had its own set of aphrodisiacs. Modern society is no different. We still scour the globe in search of foods that will make us better lovers and increase our sexual experience, both individually and collectively. A few of the right foods, especially during these bountiful holidays, very well may be the extra boost you and your partner were looking for.
