Ways to naturally boost your libido for both women and men

sex drive

One of the biggest impacts on people’s sex drive is their diet and lifestyle. Get your sex drive back today with these tips:

1. Get a taste for the Mediterranean

Those who eat a Mediterranean style diet with plenty of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables, oily fish and seafood, nuts, seeds and pulses tend to have healthier hearts.

2. Missing meals

This results in low blood glucose levels, which in turn leaves you feeling tired, hungry, irritable and perhaps not in the mood for some lovin’ tonight.

3. Ditch the junk food

We are increasingly relying on processed convenience foods, rather than fresh, whole foods – lots of fruit and vegetables, lean meat, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, nuts and seeds – which can affect your nutrient intakes. Processed foods often contain trans fats, refined sugars and high amounts of calories, which, over time can make you overweight and affect your confidence. The better your diet, the better you’ll feel about yourself.

4. Get to a healthy weight

Obesity can cause hormonal imbalances in both men and women, which can interfere with your libido. The more overweight you are, the more likely your libido is going to be affected and obesity is also a risk factor for erectile dysfunction.

5. Fill up on fruit and veggies

Make sure you get your 5-a-day. Fruit and veggies are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. No single fruit or vegetable contains all the nutrients you need for health and sexual health, so it’s important to eat a wide variety rather than sticking to the same ones.

6.Ditch the stress

Libido is easily affected by stress and anxiety. Stress and other unhealthy lifestyle habits, like smoking and too much alcohol can deplete nutrients in our bodies – all of which can potentially have an effect on our libido. Try to have a positive mental attitude and keep calm. Stress can also cause cortisol to be pumped into the body and high levels have been shown to promote the storage of fat and weight gain over time (particularly around the midriff)

7..Watch the booze

A little tipple can help sometimes get you in the mood and make you relax, but relying on it to improve your libido is counterproductive, as it’s a depressant, is highly calorific and can cause ‘brewer’s droop’ – a temporary form of impotence that occurs when the drinker consumes one too many.
