Are you looking to spice up your sex life? Then, include these natural enhancers to your diet.
Ultimately, they included only studies meeting the most stringent controls. They found that panax ginseng, saffron and yohimbine, a natural chemical from yohimbe trees in West Africa, improved human sexual function. People report increased sexual desire after eating muira puama, a flowering plant found in Brazil; maca root, a mustard plant in the Andes; and chocolate. Despite its purported aphrodisiac effect, chocolate was not linked to sexual arousal or satisfaction, the study said. "It may be that some people feel an effect from certain ingredients in chocolate, mainly phenylethylamine, which can affect serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain", said Marcone. Alcohol was found to increase sexual arousal but to impede sexual performance. Nutmeg, cloves, garlic, ginger, and ambergris, formed in the intestinal tract of the sperm whale, are among substances linked to increased sexual behaviour in animals. While their findings support the use of foods and plants for sexual enhancement, the authors urge caution. The study appears online in the journal Food Research International. ANI
