Our connection with food as medicine has long been gone with modern pharmaceutical advancements. Today, we’ve been bombarded with drugs and supplements from the pharmaceutical industry.

With our modern day thinking, a man who wants to boost his sexual health, drive and performance want to take supplements, or when consulting a doctor, he may received a prescription specially those with problems with erections.
On these days, Viagra and other numerous erectile dysfunction medications are widely popular. Yet, more and more men are experiencing bad health and particularly sexual health. This article does not advocate leaving modern medical advancements, instead look back and try natural means of boosting sexual drive, stamina and performance through food. Take note, though…while these foods have been proven healthy and effective, still it is hugely dependent on one’s lifestyle specially when a person drink too much alcohol and smoke cigarettes.
You can’t have both health and unhealthy options packed together inside the body. Choose either one, healthy or unhealthy options. Should you choose the healthy option, you may experience a dramatic reduction on modern medicine dependency. So, let’s look at some of the most common foods that are well-known for its aphrodisiac properties. Aphrodisiac means the ability to improve sex drive, stamina, as well as performance.

Drink pomegranate juice, or better eat the whole fruit. A 2007 study published in Nature’s International Journal of Impotence Research found drinking pomegranate juice have positive effect on erectile dysfunction. In the study, they’ve used POM Wonderful to subjects. For us who are hooked with modern way of thinking about food, it seems new, but the reality is…it’s not. Pomegranate has been found to contain antioxidants that supports improvement of blood circulation. If you choose to drink pomegranate juice like POM Wonderful, make sure to dilute or add water to it as every cup of POM Wonderful contains 31 grams of sugar, which is way high and you don’t want too much sugar.
If you really want to be sure, get fresh pomegranate and consume it as whole fruit. It is also a good toppings on salads. It’s really nutritious. In fact, some of the male supplementation like Male Extra contains pomegranate extract. If you search Amazon.com, you’ll find more options for pomegranate supplements.

In summer, watermelon is a popular fruit specially when it comes to juices and smoothies. Watermelon has been touted nature’s Viagra. It contains more lycopene compare to tomatoes, and while tomotoes need to be cooked well in order to enjoy its lycopene content, watermelon has it already and you just have to eat or drink it. Lycopene has similar effect to Viagra, but of course, lycopene is natural and no side effects. It relaxex the blood vessels allowing better blood flow on the body including to the penis.
There are numerous ways to consume watermelon. Personally, I simply want to eat it as a fruit, but if you prefer you can make it into juice or smoothies. When you make it as juice or smoothie, be careful about the other ingredients you might be adding to it that can deteriorate its health benefits particularly sugar. This is one primary reason I like to eat it as a fruit because I’m sure I have all the natural benefits from it.

Chocolate is probably the very common aphrodisiac for both men and women. A study conducted on Italian women’s chocolate habits, researchers found those who regular consume chocolate have better sexual experience than those who didn’t or barely ate it. Chocolate is nutritious and it’s good for the heart, too according to one study. Chocolate increases the level of dopamine and serotonin in the brain. Both of dopamine and serotonin helps increase the level of happy feeling, which is a clear booster for better mood, and when in good mood, it’s one of the most ideal to have sex.
One more interesting theory about chocolate is it helps facilitates better blood circulation as it relaxes the blood vessels in every part of the body including the genitals in both men and women. Chocolate has been always good and healthy. However, be wary of today’s chocolate because they may contain high amount of added sugar, which can hinder the chocolate’s natural health benefit to work.
When you can, always choose organic dark chocolate. If you can’t find or difficult to find in your area, try searching Amazon.com. It has a wide array of choices when it comes to organic dark chocolate.
As mentioned earlier, foods are effective for health and can be considered as medicine. However, its effectiveness would always depend on one’s health habits. Don’t expect to have good results eating these foods while one is on heavy alcohol and chain smoking.
On the other hand, maintaining a healthy way of life and staying physically active, these foods can make a difference on one’s sexual health and of course overall health. It would be more efficient when it comes to performance when one take it one step farther by performing penile exercises either manual, or best done with Bathmate pump. Bathmate is great at keeping the blood flowing to the penis better for stronger erections.
