Sexo. Foods to boost libido?

Some people rely on the power of food to feel more excited on a daily basis, gain stamina during sexual intercourse or even to naturally overcome erectile dysfunction. Here are some effective foods:

Garlic, a precious source of allicin, a molecule known for its strong antioxidant power. It also regulates cholesterol levels and improves blood circulation in the capillaries. Allicin is also found in onions and leeks;

Dark chocolate helps reduce fatigue and helps recovery. This delicacy to be consumed in moderation contains several psychostimulant substances: first of all phenylethylamine, a molecule secreted in the brain at the origin of sensations of pleasure and euphoria, involved in the reduction of depressive symptoms. But also theobromine, a stimulating alkaloid acting on good mood. Serotonin * is also found in dark chocolate, a neurotransmitter naturally secreted by the brain and playing a role in the relaxation and delay mechanisms of premature ejaculation;

Honey, a nectar capable of increasing the secretions of estrogen and testosterone, sex hormones particularly involved in achieving orgasm;

Ginger whose vasodilator properties improve blood flow to the genitals. Rich in magnesium and manganese, this root also promotes the balance of the hormonal and nervous systems;

Oysters can whet your sexual appetite thanks to their high zinc content, more so if you want to have a baby. This trace element makes it possible to boost fertility.

* tryptophan is an amino acid essential for the synthesis of serotonin. It is found in several foods such as brown rice, poultry, eggs, dairy products, soy protein or even peanuts, fish, legumes, chocolate, bananas, almonds, cashews and beer yeast.
