Top 10 Aphrodisiac Foods to Make Your Love Life Sizzle

 

 

By Diane Hanson

Aphrodisiacs are believed to arouse sexual desire and improve sexual performance. Interestingly, the word aphrodisiac derives from the name Aphrodite in Greek mythology. She is the Greek goddess of love who rose from the sea on an oyster and then gave birth to Eros.

Aphrodisiacs have been around for centuries. The Romans and Greeks used aphrodisiac foods to increase and stimulate sexual powers. Today, modern science is proving the nutritional validity of foods historically regarded as aphrodisiacs. Check out our list of natural love foods. You probably already have many of them in your kitchen.

 

What Foods Enhance Sexual Performance?

10. Avocado.

With its sensuous pear shape, you should know why avocado is widely associated with sexuality. The Aztecs called the avocado ahuacuatl, or “testicle tree” because the fruit hanging in pairs on the tree looked like male testicles. Whether added to salads or dipped into balsamic vinegar, avocado is the perfect ingredient on your Valentine’s table.

 

 

9. Bananas.

Bananas are a feel-good fruit and considered to be aphrodisiac because of their phallic shape. Other than being rich in potassium and Vitamin B, bananas also contain chelating minerals and the bromeliad enzyme, which is said to enhance the male libido.

 

 

8. Chili Peppers.

An invigorating spice that gets your heart racing and makes you sweat. This aphrodisiac food is also thought to trigger the release of endorphins, body chemicals that gives you a natural high that is conducive to love-making.

 

 

7. Honey.

This sticky, sweet nectar has been used in Egyptian times as a medicine for impotence and sterility.  A great source of boron, a trace mineral that helps the body use and metabolize estrogen, the female sex hormone. Studies have shown that boron may also enhance testosterone levels in the blood. Testosterone is responsible for promoting sex drive and orgasm in both men and women.

 

 

6. Pine Nuts.

High in zinc, pine nuts are also considered aphrodisiacs because they are believed to stimulate your brain as well as your libido.

 

 

5. Figs.

The fig symbolizes sexuality and modesty. An open fig is believed to imitate the female sex organs and is traditionally considered to be a sexual stimulant. Some claimed that a man opening a fig and eating it in front of his lover can be an erotic and powerful aphrodisiac.

 

 

4. Arugula.

Arugula is also known as “rocket seed” and has been documented on history as an aphrodisiac food since the first century A.D.

 

 

3. Oysters.

Oysters are a hot favorite among aphrodisiac foods. Research shows that oysters are high in zinc, a mineral required for testosterone production. In addition to that, oysters also help produce quality sperm and look like the female genitalia.

 

 

2. Coffee.

The caffeine in coffee stimulates the mind and body. However, too much of coffee will have a reverse effect. So, go easy on this love food.

 

 

1. Chocolate.

This king of all aphrodisiac foods contains a stimulant called phenylethylamine (PEA), considered by some researchers as the “love chemical” as it gives you a feeling of euphoria, excitement and attraction that is very similar to the endorphins giving us a natural high. Cacao also contains tryptophan, a key component of the neurotransmitter serotonin, known to promote a sense of well-being and relaxation.

 

 

Follow this list of best aphrodisiac foods, you’re sure to naturally improve your libido and spice up your sex life.
