"Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it!” So “let’s fall in love” (wink, wink). WARNING: you may want to get ready and set the mood after reading about how these five foods can rev your engine.
The colors alone entice, but this nutrient dense food can improve blood flow similar to the function of Viagra, due to the phytonutrient citrulline (an amino acid) that relaxes blood vessels. Higher concentrations of citrulline is found in the rind, so add some of those green pieces in your next pre-TLC smoothy.
Perhaps the perfect gift for your lover, particularly due to the compounds tryptophan and phenylethylamine. Though they minutely effect desire, coupled with other foods in our list, you could be in for a looooong night.
Not the sexiest of the bunch, but definitely the most festive with its vitamin E, magnesium, and beta content to help keep your energy up, AKA your sex drive! Unleash your freak with the fruit that Aztecs called ahucatl, meaning testicle. BLUSH!
Of all the phallic vegetables, celery may not be at the top of the list, but it probably should. This mighty stalk stimulates the pituitary gland, which releases sexual hormones. Some evidence also points to the scent of celery as containing androstenone, the primary male pheromone.
Spice up your bed with red HOT chili peppers! Due to capsaicin, this pepper increases blood flow and increased body heat. They can also cause the brain to release endorphins, which are a feel-good chemical.
So, indulge yourself - and your Valentine - in these foods for fun, romantic evenings and spark lotsa love!
