5 Foods You Didn’t Know Were Aphrodisiacs!

By now everyone knows what an Aphrodisiac is and what foods have been labeled Aphrodisiacs.  We all have heard about coffee, chocolate, chili pepper, and oysters heating up the bedroom, both literally and figuratively.  Here are five foods you may not have realized are performance “enhancers”.

Artichokes

The reputation comes mostly from legend and the intimacy of eating it with another, pulling off the leaves that leads to the soft hair protecting the juicy center. Beyond this seductive artichoke strip-tease, it is also packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which are critical to proper body function and blood flow.  Let’s face facts, it’s pretty much the sexiest food to eat so why not share the experience and make it even more fun.

Skip the coffee after dinner and reach for a cup of chai tea. The typical spices in this brew-ginger, cloves and cinnamon will get the blood flowing but the caffeine effect is less so you’ll still be able to drift off to sleep after your meal…. Or whatever other activities you engage in after a sip or two.

Pumpkins Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium and are well known for prostate heath!  What is less known is that the magnesium helps raise testosterone levels by making sure more enters the blood stream.  It’s natural Viagra.  Spread them on a salad and be prepared for ‘dessert.’

This ‘lycopene king’ may have a Viagra-like effect on the body as it relaxes blood vessels and improves circulation.  Don’t we all love it when circulation is improved?

 

Whipped Cream

Food is sensual and fun and can be used to help boost your libido.  Try some of these aphrodisiacs in your next meal and let the sparks fly.  We highly suggest accompanying the meal with some Barry White.  Just saying!
