8 Vegetables That Increase Sexual Health

There are certain vegetables that can help your sexual health. Never before has salad sounded so sexy. It is recommended that men eat about 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables a day. Vegetables should make up half of your plate when eating. But what you choose to put on that plate might translate to better health in bed.

Beetroot: This humble vegetable can do wonders for you in bed. Beetroot is rich in nitrates, which help improve blood circulation in the genitals by dilating the blood vessels. They are also a rich source of phytonutrients that help in natural detox and maintain hormonal balance, fixing the very reasons that makes you a slow performer in bed.

Carrots: Munch a carrot before you get naughty to get your requisite dose of vitamin A. Yes, there is a connection between this vitamin and your sexual performance. Vitamin A from carrots helps boost sperm production and virility. A study conducted by Universities of Glasgow and Exeter also suggests that eating carrots makes a man live longer and look attractive to females. Need we say more?

Garlic: For a long time, garlic has garnered the reputation of being an aphrodisiac and there are good reasons for it. Packed with allicin, an ingredient that increases blood flow and dilates blood vessels in the genital area, it improves sexual stamina and performance.

Okra: It is high in some vitamins and is also a great source of zinc. Deficiency of zinc is one of the major reasons of erectile problems. Its high vitamin content also helps counter exhaustion and revitalises sexual vigour.

Onions: Like garlic, onion is also known for its aphrodisiac properties. When consumed in moderate amounts, onion can help boost the health of your sexual organs and improve libido.

Spinach: High in folate, an amino acid, spinach helps to lower homocysteine levels in blood, a harmful substance that can lead to plaque in the arteries and other blood vessels. Eating good amounts of spinach, say a bowl of spinach soup before the big night can improve circulation in the genital areas and help last longer.

Tomatoes: Lycopene, the natural red pigment present in tomatoes is known to be a natural libido booster. It helps improve erection in men, reduce the risk of prostate cancer and also improve symptoms of erectile dysfunction.

Broccoli: Being from the class of cruciferous vegetables, broccoli like spinach, helps lower blood pressure, improve circulation and last longer in the bed without too much of hard work.
