Foods you should eat for better erection – Part 2

In the previous article I presented the most important underlying factors for healthy libido and strong erections.

Today, I have prepared 10 more amazing foods that will boost your libido and give you strong and lasting erections.




Good circulation is thought to be crucial for sexual functioning in both men and women, and strawberries are rich in antioxidants that benefit your heart and arteries.

What’s more, they’re rich in vitamin C, which along with antioxidants, has been linked to higher sperm counts in men.




Almonds contain zinc, selenium, and vitamin E, which are vitamins and minerals that seem to be important for sexual health and reproduction.

Selenium can help with infertility issues and, with vitamin E, may help heart health.

Zinc is a mineral that helps produce men’s sex hormones and can boost libido.

Blood flow is important for your sex organs, so choosing good fats, such as the omega-3 fatty acids found in almonds, is a good idea.


Sweet potatoes

If you are going to be eating starchy carbs sweet potatoes are one of the best choices, if not the best.

Sweet potatoes are rich in potassium, which helps fight high blood pressure, which is associated with a higher risk of erectile dysfunction.

They’re also rich in beta-carotene, providing the body with vitamin A, which is suspected (but not proven) to be helpful for those with infertility.



This was the main food for Popay and not only it is symbolic of masculinity, but is also proven by science.

Eating spinach puts you in the mood by increasing blood flow below the belt.

Spinach is rich in magnesium, a mineral that decreases inflammation in blood vessels, increasing blood flow an increased blood flow drives blood to the extremities, which, like Viagra, can increase arousal and make sex more pleasurable.


Dark chocolate

Chocolate increases both serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, making us happy and lowering our stress level—both “mood” boosters if you know what we mean.

Another theory is that cocoa increases blood flow through the arteries and relaxes blood vessels—sending blood to all the right regions.

Whatever the reason, chocolate is never a bad thing.

Erectile health, like heart health, is all about blood flow.

Beets are rich sources of nitrate, a form of nitrogen that is transformed into nitrite by bacteria on the tongue.

When the nitrite reaches the stomach, it converts into nitric oxide or enters the blood as nitrite.

Nitric oxide increases blood flow by dilating (widening) the blood vessels.

Since all the oral medications to treat erectile dysfunction work by increasing nitric oxide, it seems to follow that beets may help with ED as well.

The more you can do to promote better blood flow, the better your erectile health will be.


Green tea

The secret to a hotter nightlife starts with a hot cup of tea.

Green tea is rich in compounds called catechins, which have been shown to blast away belly fat and speed the liver’s capacity for turning fat into energy.

But that’s not all: Catechins also boost desire by promoting blood flow to your nether regions.

Catechins kill off free radicals that damage and inflame blood vessels, increasing their ability to transport blood.

Catechins also cause blood vessel cells to release nitric oxide, which increases the size of the blood vessels, leading to improved blood flow.



This root is a superfood that will help treat variety of ailments.

The main benefits of ginger are it’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties and ability to drastically improve circulation.

As I already mentioned so many times, improved circulation is the key to better erections.

Use it in a form of tea, add into your smoothies or use it as spice in foods.


Pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds are one of the best food sources of an amino acid known as tryptophan, which helps the production of serotonin in your brain, thus increasing your libido.

Also very rich in zinc who acts as a precursor to testosterone.



Bananas are one of the top sources of potassium, which helps to counteract the effects of foods high in sodium.

Salty foods can not only diminish blood flood to the genitals, which can make it more difficult to reach orgasm, but they can also make you bloated.




This mild-mannered vegetable has a secret.

It contains androsterone, a male hormone that works as a pheromone to signal masculinity and virility.

Men should definitely be eating much more celery than most get.



These common green florets are usually ignored by men, but it is their loss.

Broccoli contains indole-3-carbinol which can reduce estrogen levels in men, giving their libido a much needed boost.
