How to Naturally Kick Start Your Sex Drive With Libido Boosting Foods

bananas | increase sex driveAccording to the Durex World Sex Survey – globally we are having sex:

  • 103 times per year, or
  • 1.98 times per week, or
  • 0.28 times per day, or
  • 0.012 times an hour, or
  • 0.00019 times per minute!

COME ON PEOPLE! We can do better than that ๐Ÿ™‚

Alkaline Recipe BookBecause I am so socially conscious and to help this global cause, I have highlighted a few alkaline foods here that are reknowned for helping increase sex drive (click here for a complete list of alkaline foods).

Increase Sex drive with these boostin’ libido superfoods:

  1. Celery: considered an excellent food to ramp up sexual stimulation. The reason being that it boosts a powerful substance known as androsterone – an odorless hormone released through male perspiration. ‘Yuk’ I hear you, er, think. Well, this is one of those kind of sweats that has that strange effect on women…the same effect that I understand a dozen red roses and a bottle of champagne has (apparently).

  2. Maca: this is a less common food, but is no less potent. Having only recently been introduced to the Western world you will be forgiven for not finding it in your local Tesco. I had not heard of this until very recently when it was hailed as Nature’s Viagra.

    Like anyone else, this claim made me curious. According to some it is believed to increase sex drive and improve sexual performance, the frequency with which people desire sex and can be effective in increasing sperm count! Not only that, but guys should expect an increase in testosterone, a helping hand in any fight against erective dysfunctions and impotency and it also makes you feel younger. Quality! Fear not ladies – for women, maca is renowned to increase sex drive and fertility! What a stormer!

  3. Pumpkin Seeds: Pumpkin seeds contain zinc, which is important in testosterone production for men and also helps to sustain sexual desire in women. Pumpkin seeds are also rich in the essential fatty acid omega 3, which acts as a precursor of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that play a key role in sexual health. Word on the street is that a diet rich in pumpkin seeds will enhance potency, drive and fertility.

  4. Saurkraut: an unlikely inclusion, but a vital key in unlocking your libido according to the headteacher-like Scottish diet guru Gillian McKeith has deemed sauerkraut sexy, citing a U.S. study that reported 90 percent of men were more “active” after eating it. Not as saur or krauty as you though eh?!

  5. Bananas: help to increase sex drive boost male libido largely due to the presence of the enzyme ‘bromelain’ . Bananas are also a good source of B vitamins like riboflavin and potassium, which increase the body’s total energy levels. However, they are also very rich in potassium and B vitamins, which are vital for sex-hormone production!

  6. Almonds: Almonds are another major source of essential fatty acids. Almonds provide the basis for the healthy production of male hormones that are important in regulating sex-drive (among other things obviously!). The smell of almonds is found to arouse passion in female. Although I am not 100% convinced by the latter!

  7. Avocado: A super-alkaline food, the Aztecs called the avocado tree ahuacatl or “testicle tree.” Interesting fact. Avocado helps to increase sex drive, both male and female libido. As it contains very high levels of folic acid, it assists in metabolising proteins, thus providing you more energy – which is obviously good all round. Avocado also features vitamin B6 (a nutrient which improves male hormone production) and potassium (which helps to regulate a woman’s thyroid gland). Quality!

  8. Asparagus: it is not only the ever-so-slightly suggestive shape of asparagus that acts as a libido booster – asparagus also happens to be very high in vitamin E, which has long been thought of as ‘the sex vitamin’. The Vegetarian Society suggests “eating asparagus for three days for the most powerful affect”.

  9. Chilies: may heat up your sex life too, due to capsaicin รขโ‚ฌโ€ the substance that gives kick to peppers, curries and other spicy foods. Triggering the release of endorphins, capsaicin is therefore a feelgood chemical for your brain! It also stimulates nerve endings and raises your heart rate. IMPORTANT: if you chop the chilies yourself – make sure you wash your hands very very thoroughly – heh

  10. Basil: apparently basil increases circulation, stimulates the sex drive and boosts fertility! It is also said to produce a general sense of well being for body and mind. But most curiously of all, its scent is supposed to drive us wild! In fact, basil oil was once employed by Mediterranean prostitutes as a perfume to attract customers! Personally, the scent of basil makes me want to drive to the nearest Italian restaurant, but that’s just me.

  11. Cardamom: Cardamom is an nicely aromatic spice. In many cultures it is viewed as an intensely powerful aphrodisiac and also beneficial in treating impotence (mix with maca for some ‘interesting results’). It is high in cineole, which can increase blood flow in certain important areas!

  12. Figs: rather crudely, some sources suggest that figs work as an aphrodisiac because of their appearance being similar to certain sex organs, but not I. Figs are very high in amino acids, which are critical to increase ย sex drive and boost sexual stamina.

  13. Garlic: bad on the breath but good on the sex drive. Maybe this is one for long-term couples who don’t have as much worry over little matters such as garlic-breath (as long as you both munch it, you’ll be OK). Garlic contains high levels of allicin a compound that can improve blood flow to the sexual organs. But note – don’t just munch on big cloves of raw garlic! Allicin is only produced once garlic has been chopped as it is produced through an enzyme reaction. As a bonus, allicin is also has great anti-fungal properties (not that I am suggesting anything of course…)

So go forth! Read, eat and enjoy!!!

    I found out by accident that garlic def does the trick. I started taking garlic supplements for all around health. Months later I started realizing I wanted sex ALL THE FREAKIN TIME. It was a complete 180 from prior months and prior years. It’s actually at the point now that I want to stop taking garlic. A little to much for my liking, but im sure it would help out a lot of other people.

    Here is a very good advice that will work in 10 mintunes.

    There is bee honey called Manuka it is New Zealand honey and can be found in ASDA and TESCO and I am not sure about other retail. anyway, there are ones with Rating 10 and 15 both are excellent. it’s expensive compared with other honey but will take more than a month to finish so, it good as you will not need to by it everyday.

    The way you do it.

    put one full of teaspoon of honey in a mug and pour a boiling water to it, then stir it for about 20 second. Leave to cool a little bit for 1 mintune. drink it warm but remeber to have this in the morning before you put anything in your mouth so, after brushing your teeths and do not have more than 2 mug a day, better if you have 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. I hope this will work for you

    hi to all
    dear sir you forgot about very important thing :

    Ginger >>

    Clinical studies have shown that ginger increases the level of testosterone in laboratory animals. Scientists also point to the fact the ginger helps increase blood flow to all body parts, including the genitals and also mimic the body heat produced during sexual excitement.

    Combined with other the other natural ingredients in Zenerect, ginger root can help increase the level of testosterone and help increase blood flow and promote sexual excitement and desire. Like all of the other ingredients in Zenrect, ginger is considered completely safe to use with its only side effects being stimulatory in nature.

    How did this turn into an infomercial for “Dr Max Powers HGH spray”?
    Your sex drive starts in the space between your ears…. fix that bit, you’ve fixed most.
    Ross, great tips, especially the Maca root, which can be purchased from Amazon or eBay in the UK etc, just Google Lepidium meyenii, that’s it’s botanical name. I take 2000mg a day and I’m very happy with the results. I’ll stress it is a cruciferous or family Brassicaceae vegetable so akin to broccoli and cauliflower, looks rather like a squat parsnip and is not an herb, so is perfectly safe to consume.
    May I also suggest oysters be added to the list? Oysters can be eaten half shelled, raw, smoked, boiled, baked, fried, roasted, stewed, canned, pickled, steamed, broiled (grilled) or in chowder. They taste divine raw and are the most concentrated natural source of zinc as well as a good source of low-fat protein. Each serving of six medium oysters contains six grams of protein. The protein found in oysters is high in tyrosine, an amino acid used by the brain to help regulate mood and adapt to stress.
    In France we have a saying, you give a man raw oysters to eat to see how he will later enjoy the delights of a woman… Voilร , you make the mental connections there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    harry – the Dr Max Powers HGH spray works great! The only downfall is the headache. I took it the first time and it worked great, took about 45 min to kick in and get me ‘going’ down there. Next day got a slight headache, so now I drink lots of water with it and that seems to have helped.

    I have wondered forever if there was anything out there that could help me in this area. I’ve had a low sex drive for what seems like forever.

    I agree with Mark that the Dr. Max Powers HGH Spray This gives me the boost I wish I could have found years ago. Here’s some of the changes that have happened in the past month.

    Old me: didn’t think of sex that often. New me: thinking about it often almost daily.

    Old me: often thought of sex a chore. New me: Can’t wait for it to happen.
    Old me: Didn’t enjoy oral. New me: Wishes he has a longer tongue.

    Old me: Performed oral twice a year: New me: I give it to her every time.

    Old me: Would never think to so some things we haven’t done in a while: New me: Wants to go back to those things and improve on them.

    And I’ve had no side effects either. But we’re all different so I can’t speak for everyone. But give it a shot, what have you got to lose.

    My doctor recommended the DR MAX POWERS HGH SPRAY and I didn’t know how seriously to take these things – but I was hunting with a buddy and he told me how good the Dr. Max Powers HGH Spray is for libido because he used it a couple of time before.

    I’m kind of a penny pincher, but this deal was too good to pass up! (I originally bought just 1 to try it out but now I buy the 3 pack to save money)

    I have to say I had GREAT results! It’s hard to admit the libido is not what it use to be, but last week, my wife told me her Studmuffin was back. The kids are gone, and now we are chasing each other around like a couple of teenagers. This stuff is GREAT!!! Hey baby, I’m ready! A N Y T I M E — A N Y W H E R E !!! if you know what I mean!

    Hi guys

    Thanks for all of your comments over the past couple of weeks.

    Sarah and eles3d I can honestly only say you’ve got to be open and communicative with your guy. Sometimes the very worst thing is that when the physical side of a relationship fades it snowballs – the less you do it the less likely you are to do it. You need to address this.

    You’ve got to be open, communicative, sensitive, take things slow and easy but most of all talk to your fella about what you want this side of your relationship to look like. Find out what he wants this side of the relationship to look like too.

    He’s likely to be feeling pretty sensitive to the issue and may be easily offended! Be aware of that.

    Try and find out what this situation (the no sex) means to him, find out how he is interpreting it all and how it is making him feel. Tell him from your side too. From my own perspective I think there is often massive misunderstanding and miscommunication in this area and a lot of people could fall into the trap of blame, aggressiveness and oversensitivity when trying to talk it through. Don’t let that happen. No blame. None. The past is the past and it doesn’t mean the future has to be the same but you’ve both got to know how each of you are interpreting this situation.

    I know I’m starting to sound like someone from cosmo or something but make it light hearted and fun too. Things may not fix up right away and it might take a while, but both get excited about making things better than they ever have been together, as a team.

    Oh, and also, this is a big one – let him be the man and take the masculine role. I’ve no idea who you are or what you’re about but if you have the tendency to be the more masculine in the relationship – let him take this role right now. Just that one little change can make a massive difference with a lot of people.

    I’m absolutely not qualified to dish out relationship support by the way, this is just my own opinion and a bit from my own experiences and the experiences of others I know.

    Anyway, hope you get it sorted! After all this is a blog mostly about the alkaline diet and sex is highly alkalising!

    Have a fantastic weekend and good luck! Let us all know how you get on! Oh and don’t worry about too much information – only 1500 people read this page per day…

    This is very very interesting. Just what I was hopin got find. I may be a female but I have always had a very high libido compared to my friends (mostly males).
    I can’t wait to try these foods (foods that I have always seemed to love and eat) on my fiance (been with for over 5 years and the passions is just a flicker now…plus we had just miscarried this past week and well I am ready for some action and non stop attention).
    Sorry if this is TMI…Thanks again for posting…

    Hm, question– my libido is in OVERDRIVE and I eat about 80% of the foods on that list. I almost need to cut back I guess! However my husband’s libido has taken a turn for the worse but I can’t get him to eat any of that stuff, except maybe the occassional banana. He’s so picky! It’s been this way for over a year, and he’s young (29). Any ideas?

    I was just doing some research for a news article and stumbled on your site. Great blog!
    Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขll consider myself lucky because I like everything on that list!

    I have started the use of Garlic by first chopping it and soaking in water for sometime before drinking it. I hope it works for me because when I tried eating it raw I found out that garlic is very peppery hence I used the method above.

    Just an FYI, couples who don’t use contraception have sex between 3 and 5 times more often than couples who do.

    Hey graham

    Just stopped by your blog – very nice! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you!

    I swear the next group writing project will be up before I have visited everyone from this one!!!

    Have a great day

  99. Ross Reply

    Hey Will

    BTW – what is your wordpress template (or did you design it yourself) – I really like it!


  100. Ross Reply

    Aye up Will

    Hmmm, from your comment I take it you aren’t the person who found this page by googling ‘celery sex’. Not sure what that would entain but it sounds dicey!

    Anyway, mate – just cook yourself up some Penne Arribiata to include chili, basil and garlic. Or make yourself a banana smoothie from time to time.

    Cheers for pointing out the goji – could be a fine addition!

    Mate – I’m diggin your site. I must admit, when I saw your URL I was expecting something far less useful and far more adsense riddled – but it isnt!

    Consider yourself ‘stumbled upon’, digg’d and’d – and added to my bloglines blogroll.

    Have a great day

  103. MamaDuck Reply

    LOL Ross, that hadn’t occured to me but NOW that’s all that is on my mind, along with that banana ;). I’m actually all caught up on the how-to lists now, a small miracle I think. Of course, my house is a mess…. off to take care of that right now actually.

  104. Ross Reply

    Heh – I’ve never had so many winks and smiles!

    Cheers for the kind words everyone – I hope the foods live up to their billing for y’all!

    MamaDuck & Matt – brilliant posts. I’m really glad you guys stopped by to let me know about ’em. Obviously a massive hat tip has to go to Darren for bringing us all together in a massive list kind of way! Matt, your list will come in handy straight away. Mama – if Matt’s list works then yours may do too!

    Have a great day everyone – I’m off to check more of the how-to’s

    And you all should too if you havent already:

    Thanks Ross. I didn’t notice til after I posted. Duh!

  110. Renรƒยฉe Reply

    Can’t agree more, Ross.

    If you happen to drop by in Singapore, you should try the Chilli Crabs at East Coast and Indian Ox’s tail (not in soup form but the gravy is enough to send you to the moon). Definitely spice things up. All you need is to find the right partner to keep up with you! =)

    Hi Karen

    Glad you stopped by again! I’ve linked you up in the article because your post was the inspiration behind this whole thing!
