Another sexy superfood, avocados contain vitamin B6 and E that promote better blood flow.
They’re also a good source of minerals and monounsaturated fats known to promote heart health and improved circulation, both of which are necessary for a healthy sex life. Note that erectile dysfunction is twice as likely to occur in men with heart disease. So guys, eat an avocado a day to keep that little blue pill away!
Avocados are also a top source of omega-3 fatty acids, which naturally boost your mood, making you more likely to feel ready for bedroom action.
On top of that, eating avocados offers these health benefits:
- The Eyes Have It – Avocados are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants found in the retina that keep eyes healthy. They may also help prevent age-related problems, like cataracts and macular degeneration.
- Cancer Killer – Extracts from avocados kill or stop the growth of precancerous cells that lead to oral cancer and may have a similar effect on other cancers, according to a recent study. Researchers credit the avocado’s unique combo of nutrients, which include folate and vitamins C and E.
- Nutrient Booster – An Ohio State University study found that adding avocado to salsa allowed people to absorb four-and-a-half times more of cancer-fighter lycopene from the tomatoes; the healthy fats help you absorb more nutrients.
- Healthy Fat – Use avocado spread in place of mayo. It packs 4 grams of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (which lowers cholesterol), 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein per ounce, which makes it a lower-fat, more-filling substitute for mayo.
