Foods for Male Enhancement
Are you looking for an easy, convenient, and safe way to improve your sex life? You might be unaware that what you need is already inside your fridge or pantry.
You are what you eat. The type of sex that you have is related to the food that you eat because your sex drive can be influenced by what you put inside your body.
Men have been consuming certain foods with male enhancement properties for the longest time. Are you missing out on any? Here are some of the most common ones:
Boost Your Sex Drive and Testosterone by Eating Oysters
Oysters are one of the “classic” aphrodisiacs and it’s amusing due to their resemblance to a certain part of the female anatomy. These mollusks are one of the richest sources of the mineral zinc, which raises testosterone levels and sperm production. Studies show that zinc may also help lower your risk of prostate cancer.
Shucking a raw oyster is an erotic experience. You can include it in your foreplay as you and your partner take turns feeding one another. The act of shucking and the slippery sensation should get you in the mood. After scrubbing the shells thoroughly to clean them, pry the oysters open, put them on some size, squeeze some lemon or add a dab of chili (which is another aphrodisiac), and start shucking away.
Cashews, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, and red meat are other good sources of zinc.
Fish for Better Boners
What’s good for your heart is good for your penis. Fatty fish like salmon, seafood, free-range beef, and chicken, walnuts, sesame seeds, and other foods rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fats are also usually high in the amino acid L-arginine, which increases the production of nitric oxide to help relax blood vessels and allow more blood flow to your penis, resulting in better erections. Studies show that omega-3 fats may also help your body better absorb L-arginine.
Dark chocolate also contains L-arginine, which increases your chances of getting a thumbs up for your whipped-cream and chocolate-syrup foreplay fantasy. The next time you give her a box of chocolates, dig in yourself.
Go Green for Healthy Sperm
Green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale, avocados (which the Aztecs call “testicle trees because they look like that body part), oranges and citrus fruits, and beans are rich in folate or vitamin B9. Studies show that men who are folate deficient have 20 percent more unhealthy swimmers – sperm that have missing or extra chromosome – than those who consume enough of this vitamin.
Folate also helps increase energy and the production of histamine, which both men and women need to reach orgasm.
Scoop out the insides of an avocado half with your fingers and get your woman to lick it off, or squeeze oranges or lemons on your bodies.
Take Natural Male Enhancement Supplements for Maximum Results
There are many other foods which contain nutrients and substances that can boost your sex life. Besides zinc, L-arginine, and folate, other known aphrodisiacs and male enhancers are ginseng, Yohimbe bark extract, Epimedium, Tribulus terrestris, Gingko biloba, and Tongkat ali. Make sure you read all you can to see if know side effect might apply in your case.
For most of us who can’t always eat the perfect meal taking a quality natural male enhancement supplement is smart and will provide you with the herbs, nutrients, and nutraceuticals that you need for maximum sexual performance and satisfaction. But choose wisely, because not all male enhancement supplements are created equal.
