The first step to dealing with any libido problem is determining what is causing it in the first place so you can address it head on. Boosting your libido naturally means maintaining a healthy, nutritional diet where the right chemical atmosphere can kick start that sex drive – plus you get to eat some delicious food whilst doing it!

Some foods are better at getting those sparks flying than others, check it out…

Chilli Peppers

When we eat chillis, we get hot, we sweat and our pulse begins to race – sound familiar? According to Dr Meryl S. Rosofsky, the sensations we experience when eating chillies mimic those of sex and this can do a lot to turn us on. Not only that, chillies contain a molecule called capsaicin which improves blood flow and helps the body release and transport feel-good endorphins around the body, putting us into the mood for lurve.

… Or rather dark chocolate (with 65% or higher in cocoa) is a huge de-stresser, mood-booster and can even help alleviate period pain. Well known as an aphrodisiac, the evidence for chocolate’s libido enhancing reputation lies in its stimulation of phenylethylamine, also known as ‘the love drug’ because it arouses sensations similar to, well, being in love! Phenylethylamine is an amphetamine-like molecule which combats feelings of depression and anxiety with a boost of dopamine and a glorious natural high.

Watermelon is well known for cooling you down, but did you know it can also heat things up? Recent studies have championed watermelon’s libido boosting properties as having a “Viagra-like” effect on the body. This is in large part due to the presence of amino acid citrulline which works to relax blood vessels and increase blood flow around the body – including our erogenous zones.

Originating in Central America, the Aztecs considered the avocado such a potent aphrodisiac that virgins would be forbidden from leaving their homes during their harvest. They even named it ahuacatl which means ‘testicle’! Whilst avocados have lost their overtly seductive reputation, the curvaceous fruit still packs a huge punch when it comes to libido-inducing nutrients. High in vitamins E and B6, fatty acids and potassium, avocados boost energy and can help make you look and feel awesome.

Figs have long been a symbol of fertility and sensuality, what with their seed-laden center and resemblance to the female genitalia, not to mention the fact that they were one of Cleopatra’s true (non-carnal) pleasures.

Figs are rich in magnesium, amino acids, antioxidants and can cause a surge in your body’s production of sex hormones. Plus their aromatic scent and honey-smooth taste make for a truly luxurious treat to share with your partner. Hey, if they were good enough for Cleo, they’re good enough for us!
