This fibrous vegetable is one of the best ways to improve your sex life, as it contains androsterone, a hormone men release that appeals to women.

Kiwi can improve your sex life


Vitamin C is known to help increase both libido and fertility. Kiwi, a deliciously exotic fruit, is loaded with Vitamin C, so it’s a great item to toss in your grocery cart every week, along with other citrus fruits.

Spinach increases fertility


Leafy green vegetables, like spinach, contain lots of folic acid, which can help increase fertility and boost your libido.

Garlic increases blood flow


High in an ingredient called allicin, garlic can help stimulate circulation and blood flow to sexual organs in both men and women. However, because of garlic’s mood-killing smell, eat it in moderation. You can also opt for garlic pills if you want to bypass the bad breath altogether.

This invigorating spice has an exotic reputation and a bright red colour, which could be why chili peppers are considered natural aphrodisiac foods and a symbol of love.

It could be the sensuous pear shape, or the rich flavour of the fruit that gave avocado its reputation as an aphrodisiac food as far back as the Aztecs. And while the jury is still out on just how lustful avocados are, the fruit’s high levels of vitamin E could help keep the spark alive because of its role in helping your skin maintain a “youthful appearance.”



Bananas already have a way of getting you into a good mood, but these aphrodisiac foods also contain bromelain, an enzyme which triggers testosterone production, and the fruit’s potassium and vitamin B elevate energy levels.

In fact, the word “honeymoon” originates from mead, an alcoholic beverage made from honey given to the happy new bride and groom. It also contains boron, which helps regulate estrogen and testosterone levels and provides a natural energy boost.
