BOOSTING your performance between the sheets not only improves your love life — it can also improve your health.
New research has revealed that men who have sex several times a week can improve their circulation which in turn gives them healthier blood vessels.
But what can men do if their libido is falling flat and getting it on with their partner is the last thing on their mind?
Well, according to nutritionists, what you eat can have a massive affect on your sex life and making simple changes can spice up your relationship.
Charlie Turner and Lee Foster, founders of Neat Nutrition have come up with seven foods that can boost your libido. So what are you waiting for, get to the supermarket now!
Dark chocolate increases serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, making us happy and then puts us in the “mood”.

It also increases blood flow and relaxes blood vessels — sending blood to all the right places.
Almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, and peanuts are believed to increase libido and reverse impotence in men — they provide the raw material for a man’s healthy production of hormones.
Garlic might seem like the last thing you want to eat before a night of passion. But it contains high levels of allicin, and increases blood flow. These effects may help men with erectile dysfunction.
Broccoli and celery
These are foods that will improve the essential fuel to spark your sexual appetite and increase libido.
Broccoli helps remove excess oestrogen, and in turn, increases testosterone.
For example, celery contains androsterone, an odourless hormone released through male perspiration that acts as a turn-on. Broccoli also helps, removing excess oestrogen, and in turn increasing testosterone.
Foods high in vitamins B such as fish are major factors in increasing libido. Vitamin B3 is in charge of anaerobic metabolism, which offers sexual energy and raises blood flow to the genitalia and B6 regulates prolactin responsible for levels of sexual enjoyment in men.
You should never skip breakfast — mainly because oats increase the amount of testosterone available in your bloodstream. Research at the San Francisco Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality found that including oats in your diet improved men’s libidos in just 8 weeks.
