Foods and Stimulants

The main reason certain foods boost sex drive is because they contain specific vital nutrients needed by your brain and body to function optimally, not because they contain some magical ingredient that your body has never encountered. It’s as simple as that. When your body, and brain, are getting all these nutrients in abundant supply, vigorous sexual health is a natural end result. The following is a list of some of the sexiest foods around, along with the explanations as to why they work so well, i.e. which nutrients in them make these foods so potent and sex-friendly…First, here are the top commonly-used foods that can also boost sex drive:
Celery: This food is a good source of Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, PantothenicAcid, Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A,Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. Avocados: Aside from being very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, this food is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin B-Complex, Vitamin C, VitaminK, Folate, lots of minerals and amino acids… and it’s a great source of protein. Almonds: Low in Cholesterol, and a good source of Magnesium. They're also a very good source of Vitamin E, Potassium, Protein, and Phosphorus.(Most nuts are great sources of nutrients that promote sexual health, and often containing phosphorus and zinc as well.) Sunflower seeds: This food is a good source of Pantothenic Acid,Phosphorus, Copper, Manganese and Selenium, and Vitamin E. It’s also low in Cholesterol. Tomatoes: This food is a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamin, Niacin,Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper… and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Potassium and Manganese.

Bananas: This food is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C,Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B-Complex. Bananas are great for increasing sexual energy! Oysters: Zinc and Phosphorus (two of the sexiest minerals around) are what make this food a winner. It’s also a good source of Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Niacin and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin B12, Iron, Copper, Manganese and Selenium. Lamb Liver (and Beef Liver) are also highly-potent foods containing some of the usual suspects (including B vitamins.) Honey: This food is one of the fastest to provide your body with sexual energy because it is very easily digested. This is also why atheletes are a fan of honey, right before intense physical activity. Combine a few spoonfuls of honey with a glass of milk, and a handful of nuts, and you'll give yourself lots of explosive power. Notice that the above foods have some common, repetitive nutrients that make those foods great sexual boosters. (Pay special attention to the italicised nutrients in the above items, as well as those listed next.) Chili peppers, garlic, onions, ginger, asparagus, and other such pungent foods are also great, mainly because they contain Sulfur and Phosphorus (a potent combination) among other sex nutrients, like B-Vitamins.The Lesser-Known Sex Foods & StimulantsIn addition to the above commonly known foods, here are more super potent sex foods that are not so commonly used or known: Bee Pollen: Hard to believe but this is one of the best quality of protein out there. It has been said to offer greater sexual endurance and nourishes the neuro-genital reflex since it’s packed with natural enzymes, amino acids hormones, vitamins and minerals. Brewer's Yeast: Brewer's yeast is another one of those substances that's called a "complete food." While it has a very potent taste and smell, it's packed with lots of 'sexy' nutrients: It contains all the essential amino acids, a great source of protein and B-complex vitamins, as well as Chromium, Zinc, Iron, Phosphorus, and Selenium. In short, it's a powerhouse. Torula yeast is also used in similar ways. Caviar: This is another food that is abundant in nutrients needed for optimum sexual performance, including Zinc. It’s also one of the best sources of phosphorus. This food also provides nutrients that help with muscle contraction i.e. more frequent and intense orgasms. (Most other seafoods are also great sources of sexual nutrients.) Lecithin: Aside from being very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, this food is a very good source of Vitamin K, and yes, Phosphorus. It helps with sexual excitement and proper blood flow, which is important to sexual arousal as well as stronger orgasms. Royal Jelly: This food is a great source of protein, vitamins, and pantothenic acid which makes for easier absorption, which in turn provides lots of energy as well as stress relief… a great combination. Wheat Germ: Very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, this food is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium and copper, and a very good source of Thiamin, Phosphorus, Zinc, Manganese and Selenium. (Another powerhouse that you should use often.) Wheat germ oil and wheat bran are also good. Finally, foods such as Kelp, Acerola fruit, and Seaweed are also high in nutrients which promote sexual health. All of the above foods are available at most health food stores. Of course, if you need stronger doses of the nutrients found in the above foods (which often produce better results,) you can always take supplements that contain Zinc, Phosphorus, Vitamin E, B-Complexvitamins (Niacin, Biotin, Choline, Riboflavin, B-12, etc) and so on. (See above for other nutrients listed.) And now for the extremely…Rare, Little-Known Sex Foods & Stimulants Muira Puama Extract: Muira puama has been long-known by a select few as the miracle from the rain forests. Countries like Brazil praise it for it's erectile function and libido enhancing properties. It is also used to combat impotency.

Aloe Vera: Yes, Aloe Vera, the stuff that’s used for skin therapy is also known for it’s many other powerful health benefits. One of them happens to be sexual health. This plant is packed with nutrients that have sexually stimulating qualities. However, to get maximum sexual benefits, it has to be consumed in pure form, specifically the clear gel contained in the central portion of the leaf. Spirulina: Much like bee pollen, Spirulina is one of the world’s most perfectfoods. It contains all the best of what your body needs, and none of what it doesn't (i.e. no cholesterol or extra calories.) And much like bee pollen, Spirulina is great for increasing sexual vigor. Avena Sativa: Avena sativa is the scientific name for the grass commonly known as oats (or green oats.) While it has been used medicinally for a long time, some experts also praise it as a sex booster. Yet, others consider it to be a mild and gentle sexual enhancer, which seems to work much better when used in combination with other, stronger sex herbs. Here's a list of some of these other sex herbs, listed in alphabetical order: Ashwagandha (also known as Indian ginseng,) Catuaba, Dong Quai, GotuKola, Horny Goat Weed, Maca, Passion flower, Rhodiola rosea (Rose root),Tongkat Ali, Tribulus Terrestris, and Yohimbe.And of course, one of the more commonly-known ones to add to this list would be Ginseng (Chinese.)
