Everyone is exposed to various stressful situations and conflicts. Every day we meet with stress at work, at home, in communication with people around us. Permanent stress can affect the level of sexual power in male persons. Low sexual desire, inferior sexual life leaves a mark on the relations between partners. But fortunately, there are aphrodisiacs, foods that can provide increased levels of libido and improve the quality of sexual life.
History of aphrodisiacs
All the peoples of the world used aphrodisiacs throughout their history. Thus, the use of substances that affect sexuality is universal. Scientists cannot set a date when the first ever aphrodisiac was discovered and used. However, they know that more than 60,000 years ago Neanderthals used plants that later became known as aphrodisiacs.
Indians believed that the improvement of sexual function is provided by ghee and sesame seeds. Slavic peoples used turnip, celery and stewed onion for this purpose. As for China, in this country, ginseng has been popular (this plant is popular now), as well as seafood such as oysters and shrimp. The Japanese used mussels, and the Koreans preferred the meat of venomous snakes.
Why can Aphrodisiacs increase sexual desire?
Aphrodisiacs contain vitamins and minerals that are required for the normal functioning of the reproductive system. To improve sexual health, men should eat foods rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B1. Potency and sexual desire also depend on certain trace elements, such as zinc, selenium, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron.
Some well-known aphrodisiacs
1. So, first of all, seafood is worth noting. It contains substances responsible for the production of the male sex hormone testosterone. And the higher the level of testosterone in the male body, the higher the sexual power. Also, it is very useful for men to eat oysters, mussels, fatty marine fish (salmon, trout, herring, sardines).
2. Special attention should be paid to vegetables. If possible, they should be eaten fresh. If the vegetable is to be heat treated, it is best to bake it in the oven or cook it by steaming. For men, common aphrodisiacs are tomatoes, cabbage, garlic, celery, and eggplant. So, garlic positively affects the areas of the brain that are responsible for the sexual excitation. In addition, garlic has a huge amount of zinc in its composition. The combination of garlic and green onions helps to normalize the hormonal background and improve sexual health.
3. A popular aphrodisiac for improving men’s sexual health is honey. It is often combined with nuts to enhance and improve potency. There are a number of exotic fruits that have a similar effect, in particular figs and dates. But, dates are a high-calorie product, so they should be dosed when taken on a regular basis. Another aphrodisiac fruit is avocado. Avocados supplies the body with a large amount of vitamin E, a substance that has an antioxidant effect and improves the condition of the vessels. Healthy blood vessels are necessary for normal blood flow to the penile organ, which provides a good and lasting erection. In addition, avocado contains a lot of healthy fat.
