FOOD & YOUR LIBIDO: APHRODISIACS TO PUT YOU IN THE MOOD
If there’s an issue in the bedroom you want to address, sometimes solutions are easier to find than you think - and they can be delicious too!
You may have heard old wives’ tales about aphrodisiacs…foods that can increase your libido and put you “in the mood”. Well, the good news is, there is evidence that aphrodisiacs are effective! Some foods do double time, in fact; along with increasing libido, there are foods that can naturally improve your fertility.
There is no denying that the root of many problems can be traced back to the plate - in any case, eating to the right ends can never hurt!
Read on for some fun foods and their benefits:
Seaweed is a food that is gaining traction in diets across the world, and for good reason! Seaweed provides a plethora of health benefits, focusing on kidney, liver, bladder, and adrenal health. These functions are all necessary for fertility.
Seaweed also provides plenty of vitamins and antioxidants (A, C, E, K, folate, zinc, sodium, calcium, and magnesium) as well as iodine from the ocean, which protects the thyroid!
As opposed to a product from the sea like seaweed, salmon is a freshwater fish with a really important function when it comes to a woman’s health. Salmon is full of Omega-3 fatty acids, the nutrient found in fish oil pills. Although the thought of chowing down on a plate of fish before getting some action might not sound like a huge turn on, there are a lot of reasons to get in the mood for this!
Salmon is good for your liver as well as your brain health, and the fattiness of this beautiful pink fish is also excellent for improving blood flow. As we know, improved blood flow and pressure is crucial for the physical expression of getting aroused and having enjoyable sex.
An oldie but a goodie! Figs have been considered an aphrodisiac since the ancient Greeks (a symbol of the goddess of fertility and agriculture), and it turns out for more reasons than their evocative image.
Figs contain several vitamins and minerals, lots of amino acids, and specifically iron, which is necessary for healthy development of eggs during ovulation. They are also quite sweet, which is a nice treat with a healthy punch.
We all know the classic aphrodisiac, oysters, always take a placement on this list mostly due to their taste and texture. However, there is also a lot of science behind this food!
Although you may still think seafood might not get you in the mood, oysters are quite rich in nutrients, namely copper and zinc. These minerals have a lot of health benefits for women, including the aiding of egg development.
Onions and Garlic
Onion/garlic breath might not be very sexy, but its bodily impacts are! Did you know monks used to avoid garlic and onions, because they thought the effects were too sensual?
Onions and garlic, on top of being absolutely delicious, are said to increase testosterone, which aids in arousal for both men and women.
Goji berries are another health buzzword in recent years, but they’ve actually been a staple in many Asian countries for centuries. They’ve traditionally been used as a “sexual superfood” because they promote testosterone.
Strawberries are another beautiful red berry that are commonly known as an aphrodisiac. Who hasn’t had a chocolate-covered strawberry on Valentine’s Day? The sweet and sensual fruit is always a go-to to get people feeling in the mood.
Any berry, in fact, is full of antioxidants and nutrients, and tends to protect and nurture eggs during ovulation.
The musical fruit! Another on the list that may not seem obvious at first, but after considering, you can imagine the obvious ways beans could help you out.
Beans are a good source of plant-based protein, which are also very rich in iron and folate (the nutrient common in prenatal vitamins). High and healthy iron levels are necessary for successful ovulation.
There’s a reason your doctor wants you to eat your dark leafy greens! These little bundles of health contain a multitude of benefits, but in particular they tend to contain folate, the B vitamin that improves ovulation.
Leafy greens can also help you feel sexy because, after eating a nice healthy dinner, you should feel energized and fulfilled. Just remember to floss before you get down to business!
Although there’s no “magic” pill to a high libido and perfect fertility (talk to your doctor if you’re having trouble!) changing your diet to be healthy and nutrient-rich can help further facilitate your bedroom activities.
When you get down to business in bed, it's important to remember to take care of all aspects of your sexual health, including keeping your genital region clean and moisturized. REJUVENATE is specially formulated to protect and revitalize the skin of your vulva, ensuring that you are moisturized and plumped up. Just a pea-sized amount of cream provides hydration, protection, plumping and a tightening effect to the vulva and pubic skin. Along with getting your proper vitamins and minerals, incorporating Rejuvenate into your routine will ensure that you are feeling sexy and confident when you get intimate.
