7 Everyday Foods That Kill Your Sex Life
According to a survey by Durex across 26 countries, Mexico and Nigeria topped the list as the countries ‘most excited about sex’ and Japanese being the most dissatisfied in bed.
In both men and women, libido is dependent on testosterone levels with a direct relationship to it.
Testosterone levels are dependent on various physical and emotional factors and are also affected by certain foods.
Here is a list of common foods from everyday diet, which are found to cut short sex drive and are best to avoid on a romantic evening:
Research has confirmed that mint has anti-androgenic properties that reduce the production of testosterone in men.
While it can promise you a pleasant breath, it steals off the action by reducing the sex drive.
The commercially available cheese that we consume is mostly made of cow’s milk which is often treated with lot of synthetic hormones and antibiotics.
These hormones can cause sexual problems by interfering with the natural production of estrogen and testosterone in the body.
Though coffee acts as a great stimulant, consuming too much of it regularly leads to overproduction of stress hormones and increases anxiety.
These hormones have a negative impact on libido and results in reduced sexual performance.
4. Fried foods
Loaded with trans-fats, fried foods play havoc with healthy sexual activity, as the hydrogenated fats suppress the production of testosterone in males apart from causing sluggishness in the body.
5. Tonic Water
Tonic water contains quinine, which temporarily reduces testosterone production and sperm count, thus acting as an inhibitor in bed.
It is also known to cause gas and bloating inside the body which causes much uneasiness.
6. Canned foods
Canned foods are loaded with sodium that reduces the flow of blood to body parts.
Since genitals require higher blood flow for a heightened activity, it acts as great suppressant.
Also, the MSG present in canned food leads to depression that in the long run reduces libido.
7. Corn Flakes
Excessive carbohydrate-rich diet releases lot of sugar in the body, clogs arteries in the long run and reduces blood flow to genitals.
In fact, John H. Kellogg invented Kellogg’s corn flakes in 1878 to reduce the sexual desire in men as he was the leader of an anti-masturbation movement.
