Everyone knows about the supposed aphrodisiacal effects of foods such as oysters and chocolate, but recent studies have now revealed that there may, in fact, be certain fruits which have the same properties. Take a look at some of the fruits which could help you and your partner spice up your love life.
Juicy, delicious watermelon is one of nature’s best treats, but did you know that it’ll also get you fired up in no time? The high levels of phytonutrient citrulline contained in this fruit cause an increase in the levels of nitric oxide in your body to rise thereby relaxing the blood vessels and improving circulation. This has a Viagra-like effect on your body and signals a good time.
The sensual curves and creamy texture of avocado make it an intensely enjoyable fruit, but research has suggested that, in fact, it is the high levels of vitamin E which work the magic here. This is a miracle vitamin which not only keeps the body youthful for longer, but increases energy levels too!
The Romans believed that these heart-shaped, passionately colored fruits increased sexual appetite. Scientists now know, however, that the high levels of the antioxidant vitamin C help to get the blood flowing to all the key parts of the body.
There is so much more to this fleshy fruit than its erotic appearance and seeded centre. The fig is best known for its part in the stories of Adam and Eve, but is also full of potassium and antioxidants. These two ingredients are key to the lovemaking process.
The delicious, jewel-like seeds of the pomegranate are packed full of antioxidants which, as we have mentioned before, support a good blood supply to the male parts.
The banana, in addition to being a super-fruit, is the ultimate in fruity aphrodisiacs. As well as being suggestively shaped they are full of potassium, vitamin B and bromelain. The former two help to ward off cramps and keep up energy, but it’s the bromelain that’s key! This is a testosterone producing enzyme which is key to a healthy male libido.
