Five foods to keep your husband’s sex drive strong

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and the way to your heart is through the bedroom, then the way to satisfy both is also through his stomach. You can help your husband achieve a stronger sex drive and better sexual performance by feeding him the right foods.

Keep in mind that the best approach to improving your husband’s libido while preserving his ego is a subtle game. That is where preparing certain foods that can help improve libido, boost testosterone, and improve blood flow come in. You can provide the following five foods for a better sex drive for your husband without him even knowing you are concerned. And the improved sexual health benefits are something you both can enjoy.

Spice things up

Chili peppers can help heat up your sex life. These fruits can help encourage blood flow for stronger erections and ejaculation. Plus, eating chili peppers can increase heart rate and circulation, and cause you to break a sweat—all physiological responses that are similar to sexual arousal.

Peak Maximum Endurance

At middle age, you start feeling changes in your body you may chalk up to aging: energy levels hit rock bottom, weight soars, muscles become soft, skin becomes wrinkled and slack and desire tanks. You may feel past your prime — but science says that’s wrong! MORE⟩⟩


Go nuts

Certain nuts like Brazil nuts and pistachios can help improve sexual performance. Brazil nuts are also one of the best foods to increase testosterone. Studies show that athletes who took 750mg of magnesium daily for 30 days increased their free testosterone by 26 percent.

Eating pistachios also improves erectile function, possibly because these nuts improve cardiovascular health and because they contain an amino acid called arginine. Because achieving an erection depends on good blood flow, eating heart-healthy foods like pistachios every day can help improve the sex lives of men with erectile dysfunction.

Feed him melons

Watermelon is surprisingly one of the top foods for better sex. This natural alternative to Viagra contains an amino acid called L-citrulline that is converted to arginine (that same helpful amino acid found in pistachios). Arginine boosts nitric oxide levels and increases the blood flow to the genital area. Drugs for erectile function work in a similar way, but this natural approach is less expensive and without the health risks. Women can also benefit from eating foods like watermelon that increase blood flow to the genital area.

You can’t beat beets

When you eat beets or drink beet juice, the nitric acid in your body increases, helping to dilate blood vessels and encourage blood flow. Athletes use beets to naturally improve their performance. If your partner just won’t eat his beets, you can get their benefits from a daily beetroot supplement.

Go wild with oats

While you probably won’t see any movies with a couple getting all hot and heavy over their morning oatmeal, wild oats (Avena sativa) are secretly very arousing. They are high in the amino acid L-arginine, which studies have found to improve testosterone levels, erectile function, and blood flow. Improve these benefits and sensual effects by topping your oats with fresh berries, which contain large amounts of phytochemicals that enhance libido and sexual endurance.

If your husband has been struggling with erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, a changing metabolism, low energy, or mood changes, change up his diet or he may benefit from a dietary supplement that contains many of the natural ingredients, foods, energy boosters for men and amino acids we’ve talked about here to help support healthy natural testosterone levels, leading to better sexual health and more energy in the bedroom and other areas of your husband’s life.

It is important to be supportive and understanding of your husband if he has been experiencing any changes to his sexual health. You are both in this sexual relationship together, and one of the best recipes for supporting him includes using the right ingredients that will naturally give his sexual health a boost.
