5 Foods To Eat To Take Care of Your Eggplant Emoji

It’s been said for generations that foods resembling body parts are likely good for them, too. In other words, eating nuts are good for your…boys below the belt. While the jury—and credible scientists— are still getting to be the bottom of that, being physically and emotionally healthy has been proven to rev up your sex drive and its parts.

 

So, while food may not be the cure all, researchers and sexologists suggest adding these items to your shopping cart if you’ve hit a slump in the sack.

 

  1. Your Meat Needs Meat

According to NYU Langone Medical Center, amino acids Carnitine and L-arginine found in chicken, beef, and pork may effectively treat erectile dysfunction. Both amino acids improve blood flow and undisturbed blood flow is critical to sexual response.   

 

  1. Go Nuts For Your Nuts

Walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts—go crazy. Nuts full of zinc, L-arginine, and omega-3s really get your motor going especially if you’re vegetarian and suggestion #1 won’t work for you.

 

  1. Spinach Is Good For Your Love Muscle, Too

Every kid who watched Popeye The Sailor Man knows eating spinach is good for your muscles, but we probably missed the subtle adult hints that it’s good for other parts of the body we weren’t thinking about then. Spinach, and many other leafy greens, are loaded with folate. UC Berkeley researchers found healthy amounts improve sperm quality. Mental health experts also believe folate to be a promising treatment for depression. And your emotional health is just as important is your physical health when you want to get physical.

 

  1. Watermelon Is The New Viagra

“Forever Young” author Dr. Nicholas Perricone tells CBS News, the summer time fruit favorite is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that helps improve blood flow and converts to L-arginine to nitric oxide. Translation: like Viagra, it increases blood flow to your sexual organs and it supports mental and physical fatigue.

 

  1. Garlic Helps Get It Up  

Dr. Perricone also says this enemy of closeness has blood increasing benefits thanks to allicin. Taking them for a month should do the trick, but we’re not sure what tricks you’ll need to mask the smells.
