No man likes to talk about it. But let’s face it, thinking about erection issues is nearly impossible. Because as you age your performance in the bedroom tends to change a little bit. Reaction times get slower, and although your mind may be willing perhaps your body isn’t always quite as “enthusiastic,” as it once was.
But it doesn’t have to stay that way. The next time you (or the wife) is ready for a roll in the hay you don’t have to put up with a lackluster response. And you don’t have to pop a scary blue pill to turn your love life around, either. In fact, for many men getting harder, longer lasting erections can be as easy as making a few painless changes to the diet.
Eating this delicious fruit can kick off a chain reaction that turns you into a real Romeo in the bedroom. When you eat watermelon, you get a substantial amount of the amino acid L-citrulline. Your body converts that into L-arginine. The L-arginine is then used to produce nitric acid, the key to sending a surge of blood flow to exactly where you need it most, and the erections to prove it.
It’s not just Popeye that’s gaga for spinach. It turns out your blood vessels love this magnesium-rich green veggie too. Magnesium helps reduce inflammation that can slow down blood flow and lead to less than impressive performances in the bedroom. Plus But spinach can help ramp up arousal by boosting your hormone levels.
You know omega-3s are good for your heart, but it turns out they’re also tops when it comes to heating things back up in the bedroom too. Omega-3s trigger the production of dopamine, the “feel good” hormone in your brain, leaving you feeling more relaxed and connected to your partner. But the boost you get from the omega-3s in salmon isn’t just emotional. Dopamine also improves circulation and physical arousal. In other words, you will be interested in jumping into the sack more often, and you’re more likely to impress her when you do!
4. Pumpkin seeds:
Pumpkin seeds are rich in the minerals zinc and magnesium, which can help boost testosterone, as well as other hormones that help you perform like a pro in the bedroom. Zinc and magnesium work best as a team, making pumpkin seeds the perfect snack to give your libido a lift.
Herring is brimming with vitamin B12, which is essential for sexual performance, desire and stamina. But this underappreciated fish is also an excellent source of magnesium, making it a testosterone booster too. And then there’s the high levels of blood-vessel-friendly vitamin D, which could help support better blood flow and better erections as a result.
If you want to supercharge your sex life, start your day with eggs. First, choline-rich eggs help produce nitric oxide to relax the arteries and increase blood flow to everywhere, including where you need it most for epic bedroom action. But eggs also help pump up neurotransmitters in your brain that are associated with lots of sex and better orgasms. In other words, they’re the breakfast of bedroom champions.
Don’t let a few off nights define your sex life forever. You – and she – deserve better! A few small changes in the kitchen can translate into big benefits in the bedroom.
