Eric R. Braverman, the author of the book “Younger, sexier You Look and feel at 15 years younger, having the best sex in your life”, helps us understand how the diet affects our sex drive and tells us what to eat in order to feel better in bed.
Each brain in its own way regulates the hormones responsible for sex drive, psychological and physical. If there is a shortage of some chemicals in the brain – your sex drive may be affected. Some products are precursors of chemical substances, so if some are less, it’s better to balance brain chemistry and improve your sex life.
You can have low levels of dopamine in the brain. To increase its amount, you should eat more lean protein (fish, skinny ham, eggs without added fat, poultry without skin, soy …).
The problem is stimulation or hydration of intimate places?
In this case, you can have less acetylcholine. Products that will increase its level are pulses, eggs and whole grains.
Anxiety during sex
If you feel anxious during sex and can not achieve orgasm, you probably do not have enough gamma-aminobutyric acid. Food that can help more whole grains!
Food that is worth introducing to your daily diet
Apples contain phenyltylamine (PEA), which gives a natural sense of well-being and emotion, “explains Dr. Braverman.
Chocolate contains more PEA than apples (the darker the chocolate, the more PEA).
The cheese contains even more PEA than chocolate.
Avocado contains vitamin B6, which helps increase the level of testosterone and potassium, which regulates the work of the thyroid gland. Both of these elements increase libido.
Nuts contain essential fatty acids that help keep your brain alert. It is believed that especially almonds can arouse passion in women. Nuts increase PEA in the body.
Oily fish contain omega-3 fatty acids. Mackerel, salmon or trout, help increase the flow of blood in your body.
It turns out that the diet affects every sphere of our lives. According to the old proverb – we are what we eat. So let’s know what properties some of the products have and whether they will not help in this most sensual part of the relationship – that is, intercourse.
