Get your sex drive back by cutting down on these foods
Well, the rain has started a bit sooner than I expected. I figured it wasn't going to do much till around lunchtime, but it's already raining. They aren't really predicting too much in the way of dangerous weather here-just some rain and wind as the typhoon passes to the north of us. Tomorrow will be sunny and warm with a high of 29C, but it should cool down after that-Friday will be around 25C and then the beginning of the long weekend is looking cool and rainy with highs on Saturday and Sunday of 22C.
Have you ever been in a car where the driver keeps hitting the gas and then the brakes? It can be really hard on you, right? That's what some food choices are like to your sex drive, which is typically fueled by testosterone. We often think of testosterone as a hormone than men have zipping through their bodies. Estrogen, on the other hand, we mainly consider to be a female hormone.
The truth is that both testosterone and estrogen play vitally important roles in the bodies of both sexes and—unless we have a good ratio of one to the other—all sorts of things can happen. Men can grow breasts; women can sprout excessive facial hair. But in both cases, an imbalance of testosterone and estrogen can increase or decrease libido (the desire to have sex)—and a surprising amount of research has gone into figuring out which foods can increase or decrease those levels.
Below are some of the food items could mess with that delicate balance or be a contributing factor to a sputtering sex drive.
Processing removes most of the nutrients in whole foods, including ones that are important to your desire for hanky panky. For example: When rice is processed into white rice, it loses about three-quarters of its zinc, a mineral essential to men's sexuality and reproduction.
Have a great day!
