Busy work life can make our personal life dull sometimes. Tired, stressed, not enough time…tons of excuses that make our love life dragging. Now it’s time to spice it up a little with our favorite foods. This week, I looked around on the net and found 10 (and more) widely recognized foods with proven power to help women for better sex.
Hard to cut this big fruit into pieces to put it on a plate, but this super-sweet fruit is a sex-booster and worth to try. Bright-red watermelon contains an amino acid called l-citrulline, which helps relax and dilate blood vessels, naturally increasing blood flow to sexual organs to get more aroused in less time and contributing to a hotter climax. Plus, as you know, watermelon’s mostly water, making it an anti-bloat machine.
Oysters on the half-shell are pretty sexy to eat, and they also have been connected with increasing production of testosterone, which raises libido in both genders.
Wine & Coffee
Red wine contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that helps boost blood flow and improves circulation before and during intercourse.
Also a cup of coffee might put you in the mood. A study found female rats that got a shot of caffeine were more motivated to seek out sex than uncaffeinated animals. The researchers say caffeine enhances sexual arousal.
Chocolate tastes so good when it melts in your mouth. No wonder chocolate is the favorite food for valentine’s day for lovers. Cacao contains a compound called phenylethylamine (PEA), the “love chemical,” which promotes dopamine production in the brain’s pleasure centers which peak at orgasm. PEA also inspires feelings of euphoria and attraction, which pair well with the tryptophan’s effects of relaxation. Share a few squares of high-quality dark chocolate before bed and make tonight’s sex more delicious.
Asparagus & Avocado
The vitamin E in these green eats helps your body churn out hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, which circulate in your bloodstream and stimulate sexual responses like clitoral swelling and vaginal lubrication.
Strawberries & Other Berries
Aside from the healthy benefits with high amount of vitamin C, folic acid and fiber, strawberries are a good source of potassium, which helps you avoid fluid retention (goodbye mood-killing bloat). “They even contain omega-3 fatty acids, highly valued for their contribution to a healthy cardiovascular system,” says Linda DeVillers, PhD, author of “Simple Sexy Food: 101 Tasty Aphrodisiac Recipes and Sensual Tips to Stir Your Libido and Feed Your Love.” And that’s essential for sexual arousal and responsiveness. Dip ‘em in dark chocolate, now that’s a super sexy food. (from womansday.com)
Also blueberries can be great for improving blood circulation which is a big deal for both libido and sexual function. Without good blood flow, arousal takes longer (it’s the blood rushing to your sexy bits that primes you for orgasm). “Their high levels of antioxidants, which destroy cell-damaging free radicals, also make you look sexier,” says Cammi Balleck, PhD, a naturopathic physician and author of “Making Happy Happen.” What’s more: blueberries contain dopamine, a neurotransmitter whose job is to stimulate your brain’s pleasure centers (the ones that make you say, “Ooh!”).

Almond & Nuts
Many varieties, including walnuts, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, Brazil nuts and peanuts, contain the essential amino acid L-arginine, which helps the brain do its job circulating neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that send messages to cells (like, “gee, this feels so good—more please!”). “And the fatty acids in nuts increase endorphins, making you feel more relaxed,” says Balleck. L-arginine also has been shown to dilate blood vessels, improving blood flow to the genitals, which in turn may enhance arousal and intensify orgasms. (from womansday.com)
The pom owes its passion power to antioxidants, which protect the lining of blood vessels, allowing more blood to course through them. The upshot? Increased genital sensitivity. (from cosmopolitan.com)
It is known for its low calorie count, but celery can be sexy too. It contains chemicals called androsterone and adrostenal, which make us feel more sexually attractive, says Balleck. She also notes that celery contains a small amount of male hormones, which can boost female arousal. Need more? “Celery’s balance of sodium and potassium make it an excellent diuretic,” says DeVillers, meaning it can help banish decidedly unsexy bloat. (from womansday.com)
Green Leafy Veggie
Kale, spinach and other leafy greens are high in vitamin A, which is a great hormone-balancer because it supports proper endocrine function, says Balleck. “These foods also contain iodine, an essential mineral for proper function of your thyroid and adrenal glands, which in turn help regulate your mood,” she adds. It’s hard to feel great about sex if you don’t feel, well, great, so fill up on some greens. (from womansday.com)
