Foods and spices that can help your sex life, which are eaten in the belief that they posses special properties to help achieve a healthy sexual appetite.


In Jamaica, men strongly believe conch is the best thing for their stamina, they eat it raw in salads, in soups, curried, boiled, steamed and stewed because of the strength and power it supposedly gives.
Peanut is also of great interest to the men, who use it to make porridge, soup, drinks and even cakes in the attempt to get the precious nutrients’ from it.

Plant aphrodisiacs include vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains. Some vegetables have shapes which are suggestive to the imagination. They have thus been attributed to contribute towards libido. The asparagus and artichoke are representatives of such type of vegetables
which are eaten in the belief that they posses special properties as hinted by their appearances. Little is known about the chemical components which act as aphrodisiacs.

Celery is known to contain androsterone. This is a male hormone that is able to stimulate the sexual arousal of females. other vegetables like carrot, fennel and onion are reputed to be good for libido but there is lack of scientific proof to back up their claims.

For fruit aphrodisiacs, the banana
tops the list. The chemical ingredients consist of chelating minerals and the brome lain enzyme. These ingredients supposedly improve male libido. However, there's lack of conclusive evidence to support this hypothesis.

The pomegranate is a symbol of fertility with its abundant seeds. For the Chinese, the pomegranate symbolizes prosperity in an abundant household.

The peach is a seductive fruit
by virtue of its shape and other characteristics. It has been attributed with seductive qualities but scientifically, it may be due to the vitamins and minerals present in the fruit which contributes to the body's well-being.

In the category of nuts, ginkgo nut is very popular. This nut improves blood circulation to extremities of the body. This helps in improving libido.

Take grains like oats for your breakfast
and experience the effect by bedtime! Oats encourage the release of testosterone in males to help libido.

Herbs and spices not only spice up your food but also your life. Basil, cardamom, clove, garlic, ginger, ginseng, pepper, asafetida and saw palmetto are all good for spicing up your sex life.
