It is easy to get caught up in everyday work and relegate sex to the back burner, hence aphrodisiacs may come into play.

Aphrodisiacs are edible substances that stimulate and enhance sexual desire.

Here are eight natural foods that could boost your sexual appetite.


It may not make your breath smell great but garlic contains allicin, which increases blood flow. Allicin also helps with improved stamina and sexual energy.


The juice extracted from ginger is said to be an aphrodisiac and is beneficial in the treatment of sexual weakness. It is said to relieve impotency, premature ejaculation, and spermatorrhoea.


Carrots have been used to stimulate male erection for centuries. They contain vitamins that help combat impotence and enhance sexual stamina.


Celery contains phyto-androgens, which is similar to testosterone and can increase sexual desire in women.


Onion increases libido and strengthens the reproductory organs. The white variety of onion is said to be more useful for this purpose.


Asparagus is a good source of vitamin E, which is involved in stimulating the production of sex hormones.

Sea vegetables

Sea vegetables are known for their aphrodisiac properties. They are high in vitamins B1 and B2, which aid in the production of sex hormones. Sea vegetables are also a source of manganese, iodine, and selenium, which may all have an effect on metabolism and mood.


Black raisins are said to be helpful for the restoration of sexual vigour.
