For quite some time, I took libido boosters just to improve my sex life. Although it does
really work, you do have to spend some money just to get them in great supply.

Little did I know that eating the right kinds of foods actually achieves the same effect. So
today, I am going to share with you some foods that I eat that have helped me improved
my sex life and increase libido. In addition, I will also speak of foods that you should
definitely avoid.

Pumpkin Seeds

Rich in nutrients, pumpkin seeds contain good levels of magnesium which can help
improve overall health.

People who do not want to eat fish would want to consider eating pumpkin seeds as an
alternative to getting healthy levels of Omega-3 Fatty acids. This fatty acid helps
improve heart health and reduces inflammation in the body.

Ground Flax Seeds

This is considered as a superfood thanks to its rich antioxidant profile that helps
improve sexual organ function.

Flax seeds contain lignans which act similarly to estrogen in that it improves the
antibacterial, antiviral, and anticancer properties of your body.

Oysters

There is a reason why oysters are highly regarded as a high-level aphrodisiac and that
is because of its ability to increase testosterone levels in the body. That is thanks to its
rich Zinc content which is an essential mineral that helps improve sexual desire in both
men and women.

Avocados

Did you know that the word ‘avocado’ is actually derived from the Aztec term that
translates to the word, ‘testicle’?

That is right, eating avocados can actually be good for you as it not only nourishes your
entire body, but it is also packed with Vitamin E which is an antioxidant that reduces the
risk of heart disease.

Pomegranate Seeds

Pomegranate seeds (or even pomegranate juice) are loaded with polyphenols which are
compounds that help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.
Due to this, pomegranate seeds ensure that your penis gets adequate blood supply,
allowing it to stand erect longer.
Foods that You Need to Avoid

1. Alcohol

You might think that drinking alcohol can improve your sex life, but that is actually not
true. Sure, it might give you the courage that you need to ask a girl out, but it certainly
does not bode well for your sexual performance.

That is because alcohol can increase melatonin in your body, which is the hormone that
induces sleep. So, if you want to be energetic during coitus, avoid alcohol consumption.

2. Fruits

No, I do not say that you should avoid fruits entirely, but what I am trying to say is that
you should avoid eating them just before having sex. Fruits are easy to digest and may
lead to abdominal pain and belching. Eat fruits when you are not going to have sexy
time with your partner any time soon.

3. Soy

According to multiple studies, consuming considerable amounts of soy products actually
contribute to lower testosterone levels and the said hormone is responsible for
increased libido in both men and women. Avoid it at all costs!
