Aphrodisiacs Valentine Special

  1. 1. Aphrodisiacs - Expression of Luv
  2. 2. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Oysters One of the most notorious aphrodisiacs, oysters are high in zinc and have a reputation for being great for love and fertility. Casanova, the 18th century lover who used to breakfast on 50 oysters, has been vindicated by a study that proves they really are aphrodisiacs. The team of American and Italian researchers analysed oysters - and found they were rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones.
  3. 3. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Chilli Peppers This invigorating spice has an exotic reputation and a bright red color, which could be why it's considered a symbol of love. They have a wonderful attribute in their ability to release endorphins, natural painkillers triggered to put out internal “fire.” Endorphins also cause the high of extreme physical exertion — a floating, energized feeling so powerful in its pleasure that it can cause addiction to spicy cuisine. Very well attributed to how you feel when you are sexually aroused.
  4. 4. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Avocado It may be the way the avocado tree bears its fruits (ideally dangling from the tree in pairs like testicles!) or it could be the sensuous pear shape, or the rich flavor of the fruit that gave avocado its aphrodisiac reputation. Avocados have high levels of vitamin E that could help keep the spark alive because of its role in maintaining "youthful vigor and energy level." We now know that avocado nutrition delivers a punch of nutrients essential to sexual health, including beta carotene, magnesium and vitamin E, (which is sometimes called the “sex vitamin“)
  5. 5. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Chocolate The very thought of indulging into a chocolate give a sensual feeling, from its taste to its aroma, but dark chocolate has also been shown to cause a spike in dopamine, which induces feelings of pleasure. It is suggested that when someone's in love, his or her brain produces a chemical called phenylethylamine, PEA acts a lot like amphetamines in the brain, triggering a release of the hormones norepinephrine and dopamine to create feelings of euphoria.
  6. 6. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Honey Have you ever wondered why it is called a "Honey moon"? If you go back into ancient times it was a tradition to give a newlywed couple a supply of Mead (honey wine) to last them for the duration of one month. Honey is another sweet sexy mood enhancer that you don't want to miss. Not only is honey a stimulant so but holds several healing properties as well. Vitamin B contained in honey raises testosterone.
  7. 7. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Coffee Let’s talk about sex and coffee. Coffee is a powerful aphrodisiac, it stimulates sexual desire. Natural coffee makes sex and sexual arousal a memorable one. This drink has a positive effect on male potency and erection. If you want to get stronger erections, try to drink a cup of good coffee. The caffeine in coffee is a stimulant that ups the heart rate and makes the blood flow.
  8. 8. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Bananas Bananas contain bromelain, an enzyme which triggers testosterone production, and the fruit's potassium and vitamin B elevate energy levels. Since, Bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins they are said to be necessary for sex-hormone production.
  9. 9. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Watermelon The active ingredient that sows the seeds of love is Citrulline, an amino acid that is a weak nitric-acid booster that relaxes blood vessels leading to increased blood flow when you need it; WHERE you need it.
  10. 10. Aphrodisiacs – Expression of Luv………. Pine nuts People have been using pine nuts to stimulate the libido since Medieval times. Like oysters, they too are high in zinc. Pine nuts have been used for centuries to make up love potions.
