Halloween Fruits for Boosting Your Libido

Pumpkins with electric bulb holes and hollow noses adorn our houses during the Halloween days. But many of us do not know the medicinal values of pumpkins. Pumpkin seeds are one of the most perfect foods that our mother nature has provided us. They taste delicious, make crunchy snacks, and add nutrient rich flavor and texture to salads and many other dishes. Research shows that pumpkin seeds have a special power to enhance libido, both in men and women.

Pumpkin seeds, the libido booster

The pumpkin seeds contain many libido vitamins including the B vitamins, and vitamins E, C, D, and K. They also contain the essential sex drive minerals such as calcium, potassium, niacin, and phosphorous. Most important of all of them is that the pumpkin seeds contain high loads of zinc, which is important for preventing testosterone deficiency in men.

How can the pumpkin seeds enhance sex in men?

The prostate tissues in men are highly dependent on the mineral zinc. It is one of the primary nutrients in their sperm production and it increases sperm count and sperm motility. High zinc level also reduces the risk of prostate disease. There is a natural decline in zinc in men as they begin to age. This zinc deficiency may lead to their prostate enlargement and also to other male sexual health problems including impotency.

The pumpkin seeds can protect men from many sex disorders

The pumpkin seeds can increase the testosterone levels. When testosterone levels decline, the prostate gland converts the testosterone to a substance called dihydrotestosterone that can cause a range of problems including prostate enlargement, balding in men, and possibly, even prostate cancer.

How can the pumpkin seeds boost libido in women?

Lubrication is a very important factor in female sex. Pumpkin seeds can help to sustain lubrication and boost female sex drive. Researches say that Myosin, an amino acid found in pumpkin seeds, is known to be the essential element for muscular contractions, which is necessary for good sex.

Pumpkin seeds build up general health and boost libido

Prostaglandins, contained in the omega-3 fatty acids of pumpkin seeds, are hormone-like substances that play a key role in sexual desire and sexual health. Bonci, who has been doing researches in pumpkin seeds, says that in addition to being a rich source of zinc, the pumpkin seeds are packed with nutrients, including the antioxidants selenium and vitamin E, which are good for the arteries and heart. In this way the pumpkin seeds can build up general health and boost libido both in men and women.
