You all know that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but new research is showing that apples have more health benefits than you would think. Apparently, women who eat more apples report having higher libidos and greater sexual satisfaction.
The benefits of healthy eating extend to far more than just your waistline. Having healthy eating habits can improve your mood, memory and energy levels. But one unexpected benefit of clean eating is that it can improve your sex life, too. We are now learning more and more about how fresh food can improve our lifestyles, but who would have thought that apples would make you horny?
Women who eat more than an apple a day report higher sexual satisfaction, including better orgasms, increased lubrication and an overall better sexual experience. It comes as no surprise that healthy eating might improve sexual satisfaction, considering a healthy body functions better. More than apples, though, there are many other foods you can consume to improve your libido.

Avocados make you amorous
Avocados are packed with vitamin E, which is a blood thinner and makes it easier for your genitals to become engorged with blood. This allows feelings of arousal and desire to be felt more readily and lets your body signal when you are ready for sexual activity. More than this, avos stimulate the release of a hormone called serotonin, which is a feel-good hormone.
Strawberries contain a mineral called manganese, which is vital for the stimulation of sex hormones. Oestrogen and testosterone are released when you eat strawberries, which both pack a punch when it comes to feeling horny. More than that, strawberries are a fun food to include when getting kinky in the boudoir. Next time you want to get it on with your partner, bring out some strawberries and cream and get creative!

Chomp on chocolate
Dark chocolate is a wonderful libido enhancer. When you eat chocolate, you release dopamine, which is a major hormone involved in increasing feelings of pleasure, passion and love. These feelings are important for sex because they encourage you to show affection and increase your desire for intimacy. Enjoy a few blocks of dark chocolate before you jump your lover and see how the aphrodisiac qualities impact your sex life.
Trying out different foods both in and out of the boudoir can have a positive effect on your libido and your sex life. Foods are also a great way to spice things up in the bedroom. Get your creative (and other) juices flowing by trying out something new with food — and don’t forget, an apple a day keeps the sex therapist away.
