Satisfy your lover every time with help from these essential foods for your libido
Eat This, Not That! compiled a list of these essential Foods that beat the sex blues.
1 PUMPKIN SEEDS
Pumpkin seeds are one of the best food sources of an amino acid known as tryptophan, which helps the production of serotonin in your brain.
Italian researchers divided more than 700 female subjects into two groups: those who ate apples daily and those who didn’t.
They found that those who regularly consumed the fruit—which is rich in sex-boosting phytoestrogens, polyphenols and antioxidants—had more enjoyable and pleasurable sex than those who didn’t. They also help you lose belly fat.
3 GREEN TEA
More green tea makes you sexier, for the simple fact that it blasts belly fat with abandon.
Its metabolism-boosting compounds also cause blood vessel cells to release nitric oxide, which increases the size of the blood vessels, leading to improved blood flow. Nitric oxide happens to be the active ingredient in Viagra.

The elixir has a rich antioxidant profile that, like green tea, triggers nitric oxide production in the blood, relaxing artery walls. This increases blood flow down south, creating feelings of sexual excitement. Just be sure to cut yourself off after your second glass
Having some red meat with that red wine can set you up for an even more relaxing and invigorating evening.
