Foods for Better Sex
Could you be having even better sex with just a few tweaks to your diet?
Absolutely! Good physical health and mental health is important for having great sex. What you eat affects your health, which in turn, affects the quality of sex. So if you're looking for motivation to eat healthier, think about how doing so will boost your game in the bedroom.
Physically, great sex takes quality blood flow to all parts of the body, proper hormone balance, lubrication and libido. Eating a healthy diet supports all of these functions.
You can start by increasing your intake of whole, unprocessed foods (use the list below for some examples). Then minimize foods that tend to decrease blood flow, dampen sex drive and disrupt sex hormones, like red meat, dairy, fried foods and processed foods.
When you eat better, you'll feel lighter, more energetic and more confident - all of which are beneficial in the bedroom. Many people report an improvement in their sex life when they make healthy changes to their diet, especially when they eat more plant based.
