Superfoods for Sex

From SingleEdition

If you’re too tired to put out, timid about how you taste, or looking to amplify your orgasms, then it is time to rethink your diet. It’s a new year after all, and though you may be getting bombarded with diet advice by a sobbing Valerie Bertinelli or a crooning Toni Orlando, nothing can come good from those chemically infused high sodium foods they are peddling, no matter how happy you are for these favorite old timers.


Fight Fatigue: You pride yourself on the fact that the “I am too tired” routine is for married folks, yet a few extra years (or pounds, pets, drugs, taxes or divorce) have you sound asleep by nine? Eat foods that are packed with Thiamin, the B1 Vitamin, as it is a spark plug for the body. This is especially important for women taking birth control pills, which can prevent the body’s proper conversion of this vitamin. So, swap out the Red Bull for sunflower seeds, tuna or black eyed peas to keep energy levels stable.

Strip Stress: Dating angst and pre-coital jitters causing stiffness in all the wrong places? Then it’s time to up your intake of calcium and magnesium, which have soothing properties that relax muscle fibers in every part of the body and help to keep blood pressure at bay. Fortified orange juice, swiss chard, halibut and spinach are the most potent elixirs in this category.

Slake Sadness:
Most people fail to realize that erection problems, disinterest in sex and difficulty reaching orgasm can be directly associated with depression. But studies indicate that the right amount of Omega-3 fatty acids and/or a nutrient called Uridine can help banish the blues. Adding foods like walnuts, salmon and sugar beets to your regimen can help boost levels of serotonin (“the love hormone”) so you are more likely to feel content and optimistic, which can make you feel more sexually responsive overall.
