A healthy sex life is crucial for any relationship. A sexual act is the physical manifestation of your love and emotions and an expression of your desire for your partner. No wonder then that sexual chemistry is so significant in defining a relationship. A low libido can be caused due to several reasons, erratic sleep patterns, excessive work stress and unhealthy dietary habits being some of them. But what can you do, as a panacea for low sexual drive? The answer simpler than you would think.
Making time for your significant other and going the extra mile to know about their likes, or dislikes (sexually of course), can work wonders. But besides that there are some dietary changes that you can make, to fire up your sexual urges. There are certain foods which have been known to increase the libido in men and women. Some of these work well for both the sexes, while some have been known to work well on only one sex.
Here are some super foods which you must include in your diet, if you want to fire up your carnal needs:
Ever wondered why red wine has always remedied your foul mood?

If you or a loved one are coping with a chronic illness, recovering from an injury, or facing physical or emotional stress—your body’s healing ability can be overwhelmed. Learn more!
As if you needed another reason to eat chocolate! Dark chocolate increase the release of happiness hormone dopamine from the brain, along with the release of serotonin. This hormonal cocktail has been known to be mood boosters, by reducing the level of stress. More over, cocoa has been known to relax blood vessels, sending blood to all the right organs, leaving you craving for some action.
Oysters have traditionally been known to have aphrodisiac qualities. They are rich in zinc, which elevates the level of the male sex hormone testosterone and boost the level of growth factor hormone. These hormones enhance physical performance and muscle growth, which is great for you, both in and out of bed. Conversely, a zinc deficiency in the blood has been known to be the reason of infertility in males.
Have you been having a lot of salt? That is likely to have caused a reduction in blood flow to the lower parts of your body, including the genitals. But worry not, because bananas are here to counter the effects of the wretched salt. Bananas are a rich source of potassium which effectively counters sodium in the salt, resuming the flow of blood to the genitalia, making it a little easier for you to reach the climax during sex.
Besides the already well known health benefits of this popular brew, green tea has also been known to improve your libido. The catechins present in green tea are not just great for reducing belly fat, but also remedy poor circulation, hence resulting more blood flow to the genitalia.
