Let’s just start off by saying that vitamins are NOT a fix for lack of a balanced diet, plenty of water, good sleep, and physical activity. However, they can be of use if you feel you’re lacking in certain nutritional elements.
Here are some basic vitamins that can already be found in our food, but can also be purchased in a bottle…
VITAMIN A – Vitamin A might be key in producing testosterone and healthy sperm (and virility), but it’s equally important for both men and women. A healthy reproductive system needs it as well.
FOUND IN: eggs, meat, orange and yellow fruits, milk, vegetables.
MAGNESIUM – Not getting decent sleep? Try magnesium. It’s also great for your sex drive.
FOUND IN: dark green vegetables, brown rice, eggs, seeds, nuts, and whole grains.
Vitamin C – It’s not just for a cold or flu. It’s excellent for blood flow and therefore libido
FOUND IN: vegetables and citrus fruits
SELENIUM – It cuts the risk of prostate cancer as well as aids in the production of healthy ova and sperm.
FOUND IN: brazil nuts, cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli, onions, seafood, and whole grains.
ZINC – This will make it to EVERY list involving nutrients and sex. A deficiency doesn’t lead to lack of sex drive but it can contribute to sterility or infertility.
FOUND IN: eggs, seafood, red meat, cheese, whole grains
Vitamin E – You need this for energy and blood circulation (which is always good for sexual health).
FOUND IN: dairy, eggs, and oily fish.
B VITAMINS – “Deficiency of vitamin B12 may contribute to lack of pleasure at the time of climax.”
FOUND IN: green leafy vegetables, wholegrain bread, brown rice, seafood.
IRON – Aids in maintaining sexual arousal levels (anemia is your enemy).
FOUND IN: egg yolk, red meat, dry fruits, green veggies.
PHOSPHORUS – It manages how your body uses and stores energy, balances and uses other vitamins, as well as maintains a regular heartbeat.
FOUND IN: dairy, eggs, soya beans, whole grains
CALCIUM: Another great one for the bedroom! It’s a nutrient that establishes the link between your hormonal glands and brain
FOUND IN: milk, yoghurt, bread, cheese, oranges, leafy greens, tofu
As you can see, there are plenty of basic, everyday foods that contain a pack of good things for the body and bedroom. So, go out and buy some eggs and whole grains now!
