Libido Killers!

Processed Foods

Yes another reason to avoid sugar laden treats. They will absolutely zap you of your sex drive. So skip the cake at the next birthday party. Saturated fats will wreak havoc on human cells, including your immune system. They stay in your system, raising blood sugar and lowering libido. The fats also clog ventricles, reducing oxygen to sexual organs, and prevent the spleen from producing enough white blood cells, so eggs and sperm have difficulty multiplying.

Oysters

Contrary to popular belief oysters are well hyped up as the King of libido boosters but they are also toxic. They absorb toxins and numerous parasites from the ocean. To get the same amount of nutrient dense zinc ingest spinach instead for a low calorie high zinc option.

Ice Cream and Dairy

Sorry ice cream lovers. The lactic acid in dairy can squash a libido at any level. Switch it up every now and then to a lactose free alternative. The good news is you don’t have to give it up completely – 3 x per week is adequate just not every night!

And there you have it! Key foods to add and some to take away, or at least moderate to get your libido back on track and you back in the sack.
