8 Amazing Aphrodisiac Foods
Apricots: A classic aphrodisiac, apricots are packed with beauty-boosting antioxidants like vitamin A, which also plays a key role in fertility.
Beets: Known to help increase blood flow, beets were used medicinally by the ancient Romans as an aphrodisiac.
Okra: Okra is rich in magnesium, which is great for relaxation. It's also packed with iron, folate and zinc, all of which are important for healthy sex organs.
Coconut milk: Aside from being creamy and delicious, coconut milk contains arginine, an amino acid associated with increased sexual desire in women.
Nori: Sea vegetables like nori are high in vitamins B1 and B2, which are important for the production of sex hormones.
Ginger: Ginger gets your blood pumping by stimulating your circulatory system.
Figs: As the Doctrine of Signatures teaches us, foods that look like body parts tend to be good for those body parts. Ever sliced open a fig?
And of course... chocolate: Who could forget this classic food of love? Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a chemical that is released when people fall in love, as well as tryptophan, one of the building blocks of feel-good chemical serotonin.
