It’s no longer news that we are what we eat. Therefore, the foods you eat play a significant role in your sex life. For instance, a nutritious meal will help boost libido, improve stamina as well as blood flow to the heart.


The foods you need to boost your sex life are ones rich in vegetables and protein and those that are less in sugar and saturated fat. Some of these foods are;

  • Nuts


Nuts contain compounds, including zinc, L-arginine, amino acid, and omega-3s that will help to enhance your sexual life. Nuts like cashew nuts, walnuts, peanuts, and hazelnut help men maintain a firmer erection and also reduce cholesterol levels.


Walnuts are doubly helpful in this regard because they are richer in omega-3s. They help to improve the quality of sperm and also as well as fertility.

  • Chocolates

Dark chocolates release serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain which will help in making you happy and lower your stress level. Dark chocolates are libido boosters.

  •  Red wine

Red wine contains antioxidant named quercetin that boosts blood flow and sends blood to the right region. In a 2009 study, it was discovered that regular and moderate intake of red wine is linked to high sexual desire, lubrication, and overall sexual functions.

However, excess intake of wine or any alcohol can lead to sexual dysfunction. So, take it moderately.

  •  Watermelon

An apple a day doesn’t only take the doctor away but will also help you boost your libido. Just like red wine, apples also contain quercetin, a type of flavonoid.

Meanwhile, all diets rich in flavonoid help to boost your health generally which includes your sexual health.

  • Spicy foods

Hot pepper increases your metabolism and stimulates endorphins. As soon as you’re done eating the spicy food, you start to sweat and your heart rate increases which then makes blood flow to the essential areas. The hotter, the better.

  • Ginger

Ginger is another food that can improve your sex life by aiding blood flow and improving artery health. Taking a teaspoon of ginger is all you need to get a healthy heart.

  • Garlic

Even though garlic isn’t good for your breath, it is good for your sexual health. Garlic helps to boost sex drive and stamina.

If you really want a healthy heart and a strong erection then you should add garlic to your diet.
