7 Power Foods That Reduce Stress And Boost Your Sex Drive At The Same Time
Being stressed out sucks. It makes you flustered, sick, bitchy. And most of all, it kills your sex drive.
Oh, you didn't know that?
Yeah, in order to fight stress, your body actually shuts down sex hormones so that you're better able to deal with the crisis that's causing you to freak out.
In other words, "your body focuses hormone production on survival rather than procreation," says Dr. Pete Sulack, stress expert and founder of StressRX.com. Priorities, people. Priorities.
When your sex hormones aren't getting any love, your desire to get laid tanks, which can then interfere with ovulation (or for men, sperm count) and fertility.
Alright, so that's a problem. How do we stop it from happening? We should be looking to increase the production of one main hormone: Testosterone.
"Testosterone is what helps produce estrogen in the body," Dr. Sulack explains. "So boosting your sex life is as easy as upping your levels of testosterone. And you can do that through foods and some simple, natural things."
Boosting your sex life is as easy as upping your levels of testosterone.
Wait, I'm sorry, did he say food?!
According to Dr. Sulack, testosterone production thrives on two specific vitamins: Zinc and Vitamin B.
But, wait! You're not a nutritionist, a dietician or even someone who has gone grocery shopping in the past three months. How do you know what foods are rich in these things?
And, more importantly, how do you know what to do with these ingredients once you have them?
Well, lucky for you, being the kind, good-hearted, awesome human being I am, I'm sharing the list of these libido-boosting foods that Dr. Sulack gave me with you below.
And, I also found easy AF recipes for each food so you know how to serve 'em up real good for you and bae.
