If you want to maintain good health, then most medical experts would agree a healthy, well-balanced diet is an important factor. But although eating well can help you lose weight and feel good, did you know that it can also give your sex life a boost? It’s often been said that certain types of foods are aphrodisiacs (oysters or chocolate, anyone?), but eating well achieves a lot more than just a temporary lift in your sexual interest. Sexual impotence is often caused by a lack of energy, stamina, or too much stress, and eating well can help reduce those issues. If you want maximum potency and greater sexual health, then here are some ideas for healthy diet that can help you.
One food that definitely needs to be included in your quest for greater sexual health is garlic. It has a number of health benefits, including being antiseptic, a proven immune booster, and amazingly enough, an aphrodisiac. Garlic is a great ingredient, because it’s versatile enough to add to lost of different dishes. However, its most effective if you eat it raw. And not just one nibble – two or three raw garlic cloves every day. If you’re like me, that idea doesn’t exactly appeal, so try chopping it up finely and adding it to a sandwich, or a salad vinaigrette. Onions also provide similar health benefits, and is also thought to improve overall sexual health and the libido. White onions are considered the most effective.
There are other vegetables that are recognized as helpful in the fight against impotence. If you want to increase your stamina, then give carrots a try. You need to eat around 150 grams of carrots every day for maximum benefit. Asparagus is another vegetable that’s considered to have aphrodisiac properties. For centuries, many tribes have dried the asparagus roots and use it as an aphrodisiac.
Moving along to fruit that is beneficial in fighting impotence, we come to dried dates and raisins. They’re both high in fiber, and give the body a sustained energy boost. Black raisins in particular are known for their aphrodisiac properties. It’s generally suggested that you consume nuts at the same time as dried raisins or dates, in particular pistachio, almonds or walnuts. These help to give your body a protein boost, and work positively together with the high fiber in dried fruit.
Ginger is a herb that has often been used to cure sexual impotence symptoms. It has been popular for many years for treating a wide variety of ailments, among them premature ejaculation and impotency. The best way to use ginger is to extract its juice, and drink about half a teaspoon of the juice every night. Continue this for at least three weeks.
More generally, it’s always beneficial for your health and your sexual health in particular, to increase your consumption of fresh fruit. Eaten regularly, fresh fruit helps to fight the free radicals present in your body. Whey protein is a good way of increasing your stamina, energy and endurance. Finally, make sure you avoid excess amounts of alcohol and caffeine, as these are well known for sapping your sexual energy.
