myFM: Valentine's Day

Valentines Day menu that’ll spice up your sex life

Seafood and oysters- More zinc is the focus on the typical oyster and seafood suggestion. Zinc boosts testosterone for men and can help sexual function. 

Avocados-A great source of vitamin B6 and folic acid are necessary for a healthy sex drive. Folic acid increases the body's energy while vitamin B6 stabilizes the hormones. 

Spinach-Rich in magnesium, spinach also increases blood flow and can act as another natural viagra. Its properties come with a plethora of benefits, so you can indulge guilt-free on this love food.

Chocolate -Chocolate is synonymously the food of the love gods. Chocolate itself gives a feel-good factor once it’s in your mouth - a release of endorphins, but also dopamine and serotonin, but this isn’t your Kit Kat bar, this is dark chocolate like ChocoSol - more on that in episode 92 with ChocoSol owner and founder, Michael. 

Strawberries -To go along with that chocolate, strawberries. Like raspberries, strawberries are packed with vitamin C and rich in zinc, linked to testosterone and increased sexual functioning. They’re also high in fibre, antioxidants and low calories compared to truffles for instance. 

Watermelon -While it seems to be full of water, it does contain an amino acid that relaxes and helps dilate blood vessels and can help both men and women. 

Honey -Right from the birds and the bees, honey can help female hormones; estrogen and progesterone and give a natural energy boost from minerals like boron. Also, think about it, the word “honeymoon” is derived from theScandinavian practice of drinking mead, or fermented honey, and was given to newlyweds. 

Red wine-Vino Rosso, a lovely glass of red wine is notorious for helping us relax, but the resveratrol found in red wine is also a strong antioxidant that increases blood flow and decreases inflammation. A small glass of red wine (125ml) contains around 85 calories and too much alcohol can have the opposite effect on your libido and sex life.
