superfood for libido

five super foods to boost libido

#1 Cinnamon

Cinnamon is deemed to be one of the most efficient natural aphrodisiacs. At one time, cinnamon was more valuable than gold due to its curative properties. Cinnamon heats up the body and thus the sex-drive! Cinnamon also improves circulation to the pelvic region.

#2 Maca

Maca root was shown in several studies to improve sexual function in laboratory animals. Maca works by balancing your estrogen and progesterone levels, which in turn facilitates a healthy menstrual cycle. It does not contain any hormones. Instead, it simply nourishes the endocrine system.

#3 Chocolate

Aztecs attributed cacao as nourishment of the Gods. Cacao contains a warming chemical known as phenylethylamine that arouses a sense of excitement.  Cacao is also a good mood booster — anandamide, a neurotransmitter in chocolate, makes you feel happier.

#4 Vanilla

In a review conducted by The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, vanilla was ranked as the number one aroma that elevated feelings of sensuality.

#5 Figs

Figs have been cherished as a sexual superfood for millenniums. They contain feel good antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols. And their shape, similar to that of testes, as further fueled their reputation as an effective aphrodisiac.
