A food, drink or drug that stimulates sexual desire.
A thing that causes excitement.
It’s hot. It’s arousing. It’s intensifying sex. Food can have that effect. Don’t believe us? Try some of these foods to spice things up… not only for Valentine’s Day… but any day of the week.
I’m not talking about edible candy underwear, although those are fun too… I’m talking about real foods that’ll have you levels rising… HOT!
Is that a BANANA in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Ok! Don’t start laughing just yet! It’s true, a banana actually has arousing properties! No, mot just because of the obvious shape, but… for starters, it’s filled with nutrients essential to sexual hormone production for women as well as, vitamins A, B & C, protein, iron (good for stamina) and fiber. It also has the enzyme, bromelain, which is good for testosterone production. Dip them in some chocolate, throw them in the freezer for an hour and now you’re talking!
Adam and Eve knew about the FIG, which symbolized both sexuality and modesty… Get figgy with it! Another fruit that based on it’s appearance Ahem… ever split open a fig? Delicate & sweet (like most women) and full of anti-oxidants, figs have been known to be associated with love and fertility.
Pine Nuts. An ancient Arabian scholar named Galen recommended eating one hundred pine nuts before going to bed, as he said that it would stimulate the libido! High in zinc, which is an essential key when it comes to sexual health.
Leave it to the Greeks to find one of the tastiest aphrodisiacs out there and one of my favorites! ARUGULA! It’s not only of stimulator dating all the way back to ancient times… it’s actually got some science to back it up! According to Dr. Jennifer berman of the Berman Woman’s Wellness Center, “Arugula is one of the historically renowned “love drugs” that has been verified by medical research. We now know that arugula’s natural aphrodisiac qualities stem from the trace minerals and antioxidants it contains. These minerals and antioxidants inhibit the introduction of potentially libido-reducing contaminants into your system — making them essential for the health of your reproductive organs.” Plus that peppery spice will just add to the heat of arousal!
