Can revamping your diet recharge your sex life? Yes, says Eric R. Braverman, MD, author of Younger Sexier You: Look and Feel 15 Years Younger by Having The Best Sex of Your Life. Here are his top four picks for foods to nosh for better nookie:
Apples contain phenylethylamine (PEA), which gives you a natural feeling of well-being and excitement, explains Dr. Braverman. Chocolate contains more PEA than apples (the darker the chocolate, the more PEA), and cheese contains even more PEA than chocolate.
Avocado contains vitamin B6, which helps to increase testosterone and potassium and regulate the thyroid gland. Both of these elements enhance libido.
Nuts contain essential fatty acids that help keep the brain alert. Almonds in particular are believed to arouse passion in women. Nuts are also thought to enhance your body’s own PEA, and are known to boost testosterone.
Oily fish contain omega-3 fatty acids. Found in salmon, mackerel, or trout, they make the blood less sticky, which enhances blood flow throughout the body.
