Can sexy food really transform our health? What food do you instantly think of when you want to get romantic? Could it be chocolate truffles, champagne, or strawberries?
We often have definite ideas of the types of foods that are supposed to make us more desirable to the objects of our affection. But, can food actually improve your sex life, transform your mood, and even increase fertility?
Ever since Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” Studies suggest that certain foods change brain structure and chemistry, affecting mood and performance. For instance chocolate is a well-known mood enhancer and tension reliever.
The research being done on how certain foods can affect your mood, revitalize your DNA, and even increase sexual arousal is fascinating. We will reveal four sexy food secrets that can boost your well-being today.
Sexy Food Secret #1 How to Increase Male Fertility
A six-month study on six participants conducted by the University of Sheffield found that the men on average had only a 76% viable sperm count. For sperm counts to be viable, they should average at around 90%. The remaining 24% of sperm studied had considerable DNA damage.
Since new sperm takes approximately three months to develop, the men would drink in addition to their regular meals two fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies a day for the next six months. University nutritionists created several different smoothie recipes designed to optimize male fertility.
The surprising result was that the increased vitamin C and D consumption reversed DNA damage in sperm counts and improved the sperm DNA quality. It was found that an increased intake of antioxidants particularly vitamin C, zinc, and selenium increased sperm composition and movement.

Sexy Food Secret #3 – Do Aphrodisiacs Really Work?
Is it your partner or is it really the food? Dr. Harry Winchell from the University of Bristol studied four participants and two professional models to be the participants’ dates.
Dr. Winchell measured heartbeat, breathing, and used thermal imaging to detect arousal. The most prominent changes were increased heart rate and breathing. Temperature changes produced on thermal imaging discovered an increase of blood flow to the eyelids, lips, and cheeks.
After registering the physiological changes, the participants were then fed by their date an aphrodisiac food: chocolate, strawberries, asparagus, or oysters. The participants’ vital signs were measured again.
So does food actually turn us on?
From the bio-medical sensors, food had no real effect on increasing arousal. Instead, all of the physical responses came from interaction between the partners. So aphrodisiac foods may wet our appetite for indulgence but they were a fail in creating sexual arousal.
Sexy Food Secret #4 – Can Food Transform Your Mood and Relieve PMS?
Premenstrual syndrome can be frustrating and even unbearable for many women suffering from it. Queen’s Hospital in England studied sixteen women who suffered from distressing PMS symptoms including depression, mood swings, irritability, paranoia, despair, and anxiety.
They were divided into two groups. One was prescribed a diet high in low-fat dairy and oily fish (high in vitamin D). Calcium aids in the absorption of vitamin D. The other group was given a placebo pill.
The results were astounding! The change in diet was found to have a positive impact on mood versus those that took the placebo. Several of the participants experienced a 50% reduction in PMS symptoms. Suffering from PMS pop a wedge of cheddar instead of Midol!
