February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day is on the horizon – here are some tips on the superfoods that will get you in the mood.
Aside from being downright sexy itself, chocolate fuels the release of endorphins and serotonin due to its high levels of PEA (phenyl ethylamine) which induces excitement, attraction and euphoria. Raw cacao, the pure form of chocolate also contains tryptophan (an essential amino acid), which promotes a sense of wellbeing and relaxation – perfect for getting you in the mood.
The sweet, nutty aroma of almonds is said to arouse passion in females, but if smelling them simply isn’t enough, eating them is also amazing for your health (and sex life). Almonds are packed with skin boosting fats as well as an abundance of vitamin E, magnesium and fibre to help keep you going.
Honey has long been associated with sexual desire as it is a great source of boron, a trace mineral that helps the body use and metabolise oestrogen, the female sex hormone. The mineral also enhances testosterone levels in the blood, promoting sex drive and pleasure in both men and women.
The anti-oxidant packed pomegranate is a sensual powerhouse famous for boosting testosterone levels. This ancient fruit also encourages blood flow by protecting the lining of the blood vessels, making it easier to get your blood pumping (and your heart racing).
The seductive stalks are loaded with potassium, fibre, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C and thiamine, as well as folic acid which boosts the production of histamine which is needed by both men and women.
Avocados and Bananas
These two superfruits are packed with potassium and body-loving nutrients.
Here’s to a very happy Valentine’s Day!
