9 Foods/Supplements for Better Sex



There's nothing wrong with wanting to upgrade or spice up your sex life. Sex and emotional connection are important when it comes to relationships. If you're looking for an advantage when it comes to your sex life, these 9 foods/supplements will help.



1. Maca


Maca powder is from Peru and grows mostly in the Andes Mountains. This herb is known for its increase in sex drive and its ability to enhance libido in men and women. It can also work as an antidepressant as it has been shown to increase mood.


2. Cocoa


Organic cocoa powder has a plethora of benefits including antioxidants, calcium, copper magnesium, and zinc [3]. Cocoa powder also lowers blood pressure as it's rich in polyphenols, which has shown to boost the availability of nitric oxide in blood vessel linings and increase blood flow [3]. Make sure that you are eating organic and sugar-free.





3. Yohimbine


Yohimbe comes from a tree that is native to parts of western Africa and is commonly used as an aphrodisiac [4]. This supplement made from the bark of the evergreen tree is popular because of its weight loss benefits and its ability to improve sexual performance.


4. Fenugreek


Fenugreek is an herb that is native to southern Europe, parts of Africa, and the Mediterranean and is known to increase male libido.


"Researchers found that men taking fenugreek can boost their sex drive by at least a quarter." [5]

5. Watermelon


Watermelon...the perfect snack for a hot summer day, but that's not the only thing it's good for! Watermelon is rich in an amino acid called "L-citrulline" which helps improve the blood flow and increases levels of nitric oxide in the body.





6. Dark Chocolate


Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants and can benefit your mental health by contributing blood flow to the brain. I recommend eating a bite or two pieces per day for the best results.


7. Red Wine


As if you needed another reason to drink wine??


"Studies show that red wine may be the only type of alcohol that can improve sex." [6]

Red wine has been shown to improve your sexual performance by increasing blood flow. The key to seeing benefits is to drink in moderation. One to two glasses are ideal.


8. Pumpkin Seeds


Pumpkin seeds are an excellent libido enhancer and contain a ton of health benefits from antioxidants to improved bladder function. Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and omega-3 fatty acids which aid in sexual health.


9. Avocados


Avocados contain B6 vitamin and monounsaturated fats which are beneficial to the body. The folic acid contained in avocados provides sustainable energy production and an overall sense of well-being.
