Sex foods guaranteed to work!

Postby LKVM » Mon Mar 01, 2010 11:29 am

Think you know what foods turn someone on? Do you keep a pantry full of love potions and shop from a list of foods for sex that are "guaranteed" to work?

Check out our list of alleged natural sex aphrodisiacs and see if you can tell the love potions from the love poisons.

Oysters
Oysters are a favourite among erotic foods and research now shows this shellfish to be a rich source of zinc – a mineral required for the production of testosterone. Not only the hormone behind the male sex drive, testosterone is believed to stimulate the female libido as well.

Chili peppers
A pepper's heat comes from "capsaicin," a chemical that stimulates our nerve endings, raising our pulse and making us sweat. Some researchers believe that eating hot foods also triggers the release of endorphins, body chemicals that gives us a natural high that is conducive to love-making.

Chocolate
In addition to the sensuous texture of melted chocolate, this quintessential lovers' gift contains a stimulant called phenylethylamine, considered by some researchers as the "love chemical" as it gives you a feeling of wellbeing and excitement that is very similar to the endorphins giving us a natural high.

Wild yam
Wild yam has a traditional use as an aphrodisiac and chemical analysis shows that it contains chemicals that can increase sensitivity in the genitals. It also has a reputation for inducing erotic dreams, when drunk at bedtime, although it has not been proven in clinical trials.

Ginkgo
Ginkgo is commonly used for age-related memory loss, but some have had success using it to treat sexual dysfunction; possibly by stimulating the release of nitric oxide, widening blood vessels of the genitals and erectile tissue. Ginkgo shouldn't be taken with blood-thinning drugs or by people with heart disease.

Asparagus
Many foods thought to be aphrodisiacs were considered so because of their phallic shape. Asparagus however, has more than suggestive form. It is rich in vitamin E, a vitamin considered to stimulate production of our sex hormones and may be essential for a healthy sex life.

Banana
Due not only to its shape, but also its creamy, lush texture, some studies show its enzyme bromelain enhances male performance.

Caviar
It is high in zinc, which stimulates the formation of testosterone, maintaining male functionality.

Spanish fly
One of the most notorious of the modern love potions, Spanish Fly is actually quite dangerous. Made from the dried body of a special beetle, it irritates the urinary tract, sending a rush of blood to the genitals.

Champagne
Viewed as the "drink of love," moderate quantities lower inhibitions and cause a warm glow in the body.

Figs
Seasonal crops were celebrated by ancient Greeks in a frenzied copulation ritual.

Yohimbine
Yohimbine, extracted from Yohimbine bark, can facilitate erections by stimulating the nervous system and increasing blood flow to the penis. But it is not for everyone. Common side effects include increased heart rate, raised blood pressure, anxiety and nausea. Available by prescription, Yohimbine should be used under a doctor's supervision.

See the Advantages of YAM

Health Benefits Of Eating Yams
Wild yam has been used as a form of traditional herbal Chinese medicine for a long time. It is mainly used for the proper functioning of the renal and the female endocrine system. For instance, its root has been traditionally given to lactating women. However, there is no clear evidence to support this theory and studies are still going on to establish a connection between diosgenins (a chemical substance found in yam) and the female endocrine function.
Wild yam also helps decrease water retention and alleviates nausea during pregnancy.
Yams have high levels of Vitamin B6, which is a popular supplement for women suffering from depression due to premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Regular intake of Vitamin B6 is also beneficial against a number heart conditions and stroke, as they help in the breakdown of a chemical substance called homocysteine. High levels of this substance cause direct damage to the walls of the blood vessels, leading to a number of health problems.
The rate of conversion of the complex carbohydrates and fiber, present in yam, into sugar is very slow and their absorption rate into the blood stream is also very slow. Thus, they help maintain the blood sugar level. In addition, due to their high fiber content, yams help control the body weight, by the uniform distribution of weight without transferring extra weight to the hip area or the waistline.
Yams are rich in manganese, which is an essential factor for the metabolism of carbohydrate and antioxidant defenses. It is also a co-factor in a number of enzymes that are related to the production of energy.
Mexican wild yam is a very effective antispasmodic and is used in conditions like menstrual cramps, pain, improper circulation, neuralgia, nerve tension, muscle tension, abdominal and intestinal cramps and even in inflammatory stages of RA.
Yam supplies elements that are important for optimal glandular function and benefits the respiratory, urinary and nervous systems.
Another positive trait of yam is that it helps control high blood pressure or hypertension. This is because of the fact that yams are a good source of potassium, which helps maintain the blood pressure level.
Yams also aid the process of digestion, by dilating vessels and stimulating bile flow.

hi daisyt

fyi, the american wild yam is not the same as the normal yam.

american wild yam, (Dioscorea villosa and other Dioscorea species) is a specie of a twining tuberous vine that is native to and found growing wild in North America. it possesses dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)-like properties and acts as a precursor to human sex hormones such as estrogen and progesterone.

thats y, the extract of the wild yam can be used as a contraceptive, to treat painful menstruation, hot flashes, menopause symptoms, morning sickness, inflammation and many more........
