This Food Can Give Your Libido a Boost

Bananas Help Boost LibidoWhen it comes to eating foods for a boost in libido, oysters, strawberries, and chocolate typically come to mind. But there is a fruit that can work wonders on your bedroom performance and libido. That fruit is bananas.

Bananas have all the good stuff to get you in the mood and improve your performance. To start, bananas contain bromelain enzyme, which is believed to be a natural libido-booster. It may also help fight impotence.


Another key ingredient is potassium, which is a key nutrient to support overall health. For example, potassium is important for proper heart health, and when your heart is healthy, you can get proper blood circulation to the genitals allowing it to work better. Furthermore, low potassium levels are associated with hypertension, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, and fatigue. Low potassium is also associated with low mood and possible depression, which are two very serious libido-killers.

Potassium is also known to boost testosterone levels, which is a necessary hormone for libido.

Other nutrients found in bananas can also benefit the prostate and help your reproductive organs.

Bananas possess other nutrients, which boost energy levels, and we all know that sex requires ample energy.


The best part about bananas is, unlike other aphrodisiacs, you don’t need to cook them, and they are readily available to enjoy on the go. Which means right before you hit the sack, you can hit the kitchen to enjoy a banana to start experiencing all their benefits.

If you needed a reason to eat more bananas, we hope that their benefits on your sexual health are a good enough reason to enjoy them more often.
