Plants as aphrodisiacs

Rate this Entry
Plant-Based Aphrodisiacs:

Apples:
The flavor of most apples is almost that of the most delicious, juicy candy. But don’t let this fool you, apples are superfoods wrapped in a delicate skin. High in antioxidants, their free radical -fighting power boosts natural anti-aging abilities while helping to fight cancer.

Asparagus:
Rich in vitamin E, eating asparagus at least three days in a row can increase blood flow and oxygen to the genitals. It also contains potassium, which is vital for production of sexual hormones.

Avocado:
These plump, heart healthy fruit contain folate, vitamin E and omega 3’s. Eating these essential nutrients can improve heart health and sexual performance.

Chili Peppers:
Adding chili peppers to a meal can stimulate arousal by increasing your overall energy, and heating up the body.

Dark Chocolate:
Rich in magnesium and phenylalaline, eating dark chocolate can soothe nerves and raise endorphins. This combination is especially helpful in women, who feel more intimate when relaxed and happy.

Cinnamon
This spice has been shown to increase sex drive over time and, in women, reduce urinary tract infections.

The benefits come from its ability to lower high blood sugar, which restricts blood flow to the vagina (and the penis). So, if you can control your blood sugar, you’ll have better sex.

Cinnamon is not an immediate aphrodisiac, but it’s still reason enough to say yes to warm cinnamon buns for dessert.

And you have nothing to lose by adding a teaspoonful of fresh cinnamon to your morning coffee or bran muffin each day.

Ginseng: A study in Korea found that consuming ginseng can increase the libido, and improve sexual performance.

PINEAPPLES:

Pineapple is an invigorator and has a great digestive and purifying effect. A glass of fresh pineapple juice is especially vitalising. For aphrodisiac effect, eat sliced pineapples with chili powder or mix with honey and rum. A small glass of the fruit's juice taken daily promotes energies of love.

OYSTERS:

Oysters have been accepted as an aphrodisiac as early as second century. Romans believed that women became wanton after having wine and oysters. In ancient Rome, thousands of slaves were sent to the English Channel to gather oysters for feats. Another interesting fact is that the legendary lover Casanova ate 70 oysters a day to maintain his renowned sexual prowess. The fact, however, is that oysters are a rich source of zinc which plays an important role in sperm production and strengthening the immune system.

ROSE:

The rose is said to be the favourite flower of Venus, the Roman counterpart of Aphrodite. In history rather than mythology, the Romans truly had a passion for roses. In ancient times, people often gorged on rose pudding to revitalize their sex life. Roses were extremely prominent at the Bacchanalia, ancient Rome's official orgy. So, garnish ice-creams with rose syrup for a delectable dessert together.

HONEY:

The kama Sutra, the perfumed Garden (ancient Arabic equivalent of Kama Sutra) and even the Bible mention honey as a symbol of love, sex and sensuality. No wonder we call the object of our affection 'Honey'! Avicenna, the great Arab physician (11th century) prescribed honey mixed with ginger and a little pepper to stimulate those love hormones!

Maca: Thought in South America to be a potent aphrodisiac, Maca is rich in magnesium, vitamins and minerals that are particularly helpful to men suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Nutmeg: Nutmeg can stimulate the nervous system and increase blood flow. As a result, sex drive is bolstered.

Tomatoes: Once nicknamed “love apples” by the Puritans, tomatoes contain lycopene which enhance the libido.

Tofu: an aphrodisiac for women, this plant-based meat alternative is attributed to relaxing muscles tensions. Women find that when they are more relaxed, they are more open to romance.

Whole grains: an aphrodisiac for both men and women. Whole grains and complex carbohydrates can provide sustainable energy, which boosts performance.

BETEL PALM:

Betel palm contain alkaloids that have stimulating effect on the entire body, particularly the erogenous zones. It is a traditional aphrodisiac in Ayurvedic medicine and is counted among the eight types of pleasure in the Brahmantic tradition. It is supposed to have magical properties and is used as an offering to Gods.

STRAWBERRIES, RASBERRIES AND WHIPPED CREAM:

Strawberries, Rasberries and grapes are perfect for hand-feeding your lover. They are high on vitamin C and considered fruits of love. Whipped cream is another favourite. Buy a kilo of heavy cream, put it in the mixer with a little powdered sugar and whip till it turns soft. Drop in a half-teaspoon of vanilla or orange flavour and enjoy the affect later.

VANILLA:

Vanilla is smooth, clean and can act as an instant mood-lifter. The scent of vanilla alone is often enough to stimulate both male and female libido. When consumed, vanilla, like chocolate, aids the central nervous system. So buy tonnes of vanilla you head for a romantic weekend.

CAVIAR:

This food, out of range for most budgets, apparently has qualities that nourish and enhance nerve cells, which can heighten romantic instincts. Caviar's powers are reinforced with the addition of vodka, so indulge both passions at the same time and have a blast.

TRUFFLES:

Truffles are believed to contain a chemical that is similar to the sex hormones of humans and pigs! The fact that truffles are rare and expensive adds to their mysterious and romantic reputation.

PUMPKIN SEEDS:

Eat a handful of pumpkin seeds an hour or so before your rendezvous to get a lift from tyrosine, a mood-elevating amino acid that has ben shown to snack increases alertness, giving you an energy boost before bedtime. Eat them raw or roast them at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes with oil and a pinch of salt.


SEVEN LEAF TEA:

Gynostemma pentaphyllum
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gynostemma_pentaphyllum

It has an interesting flavour, slightly 'sweet' in a way. No caffeine, but pretty good all the same.

Caviar...I'll give it another try, I wasn't too fond of it the first time i tried it, but that was 14 years ago.
'Ordinary' caviar isn't too expensive.
Beluga and such...yeah, those are insanely expensive types.

    Oatmeal - makes you horny and improves sperm count and testosterone levels.
    Chocolate - it causes endorphin production (feel good hormone) and dopamine release (released during sex--the euphoria)
    Oysters - high in zinc causing testosterone production which, in dudes, makes a higher sperm count
    Chili peppers - eat before sex since it causes endorphin production (feel good hormone)
    Chia Seeds - can make you horny
    ginger, garlic, onions - they do cause desire - some religious sects ban them for this reason
    tomatoes - the sin apple - they greatly enhance libido
    soy - makes the body relax making sex better
    artichokes - enhances stimulus

    Best thing for great sex? Eat healthy and exercise. It is a fact when I eat junk and don't workout, my orgasms (and desire) aren't as good. Have fun!
