Boost Your Libido With Vitamin B

By Rachel Venokur-Clark, Green Options

B vitamins help to regulate the sex organs. The amount of Vitamin B in the body is correlated with the amount of sex hormones released. Vitamin B deficiencies can lead to lethargy and fatigue, which usually means more sleep and rest is needed, not sex. Bs also play a large role in brain function and cognition and may be useful in relieving minor depression and anxiety. Each specific B vitamin offers your body something different in regard to your overall health as well as your sex health. Vegans need to pay especially close attention to their B intake, especially B12, to ensure that all their B vitamin needs are met. Also, as we age, this specific nutrient is not absorbed as well as it is when we are young. Those sexy elders need to keep an eye on their B levels as well if they want to keep the passion alive in the bedroom.

It is quite easy to meet all your B needs with a plant-based diet, as long you are paying attention to what you are putting in your mouth. Ideally, you always want to get your vitamins directly from your food, but if you find yourself stranded in the desert, far from a grocery store, you can always supplement with a B complex. Since each B delivers different health and sex related fun to our bodies, here is a breakdown of each with specific sexy veggie food choices for that particular B.

B1-Thiamine:
-Enhances circulation, which allows blood to flow not only to your heart but below the belt as well.
-Boosts energy levels and is needed for optimizing brain function. We all know you need a little energy to get it on and that for us gals, foreplay begins with our minds.
-Has antioxidant affects, which can protect our bodies from aging. The younger we feel and look, the more confident and sexy we are.
B1 Sexy Veggie Food Sources: brown rice, peanuts, peas, sea vegetables like dulse flakes and kelp, wheat germ, rice bran and most whole grains

B2 Riboflavin:
-Aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. If we are not metabolizing the food we eat properly, we are storing it, usually as fat.
-Facilitates the use of oxygen by the tissues of our hair, skin and nails keeping us looking young, vibrant and sexy.
B2 Sexy Veggie Food Sources: legumes, spinach and whole grains
