5 Smart Foods to Increase Your Sex Drive

By 

Former NRL champion Adam MacDougall has the advice that all men need to survive the Christmas season without ending up looking like Santa himself.

For those who are dreading the Christmas season, who know they’re going to pile on the kilos through eating and drinking too much and are too busy to exercise, Adam MacDougall proves that after just ten minutes a day you can keep yourself fit and healthy this Christmas and New Year season.

Get Your Mojo Back

As the saying goes, use it or lose it, and this is certainly the case with sex. Sex is much like your quad or bicep: if you don’t exercise it, it goes limp, and no one wants to lose their love muscle. A 2008 study, published in The American Journal of Medicine, found that men who had sex once a week were half as likely to suffer erectile dysfunction than those who had sex less frequently. Sex also promotes general health, as it boosts your immune system, lowers your blood pressure, reduces your risk of heart disease and prostate cancer, improves sleep and eases stress.

5 Smart foods to increase your sex drive

  1. GARLIC
    You might have strong breath after eating it but your manhood will also be a lot stronger, with the active ingredient in garlic increasing blood flow to the lower regions, and enhancing the production of testosterone, the master sex hormone for men.
  2. EGGS
    There’s loads of good cholesterol in eggs, which our bodies use to make testosterone. Make sure you eat the whole egg, though, as the libido-boosting cholesterol is in the yolk.
  3. BEEF
    For maximum mojo, make sure it’s grass-fed as some evidence suggests grain-fed cattle contain more oestrogen, which is great if you feel like holding hands and watching Sex and The City, but not so good if you want to get busy.
  4. GREENS
    Yes, your mum was right, eating your greens will make you strong. These antioxidant powerhouses get the blood pumping, boost testosterone levels and remove oestrogen from the body.
  5. BRAZIL NUTS
    Get your nuts back with these little beauties; they’re packed full of amino acids that boost sexual performance and minerals such as magnesium, which in one study contributed to a massive 26 per cent increase in testosterone after only four weeks.
