It’s officially Valentine’s Day and for those of you still scrambling to find the perfect recipe for your romantic meal, we have just what you need: 5 libido-boosting foods (actually 17 if you count the bonus foods at the end of the list) that will put  your special someone in the mood for love.

Those of you looking to get lucky this Valentine’s can take a good long look at the list below. These super foods will increase your sex drive and make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.

Here are 5 foods proven to increase your sex drive and put you in the mood:

1. Bananas

Bananas are rich in bromelain – an enzyme known to increase libido, particularly in men. This fruit is also high in Vitamin B and potassium – which are both known to increase energy levels.

2. Asparagus

Asparagus is full of folate – a B vitamin which helps to boost the production of histamine. Histamine plays an important role in the sex drive of men and women. Proper levels of this vitamin will ensure you have the energy you need to perform well.

3. Avocados

Avocados are packed with Vitamin B6 – which means they boost libido in both men and women. This vitamin increases male hormone production and regulates the female thyroid gland. Avocados are also rich in folic acid which have been proven to increase stamina.

4. Goji Berries

In Asia, goji berries are well-known for increasing sex drive. These foods boost testosterone levels and stimulate libido in both men and women. In addition, these berries improve stamina and mood which are both key to optimal performance.

5. Watermelon

Not only is watermelon refreshing and healthy but it’s also rich in citrulline – an amino acid known to improve blood flow to the heart and the sexual organs. Higher levels of citrulline can be found in watermelon rind but there’s still a lot of benefit to eating the fresh fruit as is.

Other notable foods known for increasing sex drive are oysters, nuts, dark chocolate (perfect for Valentine’s Day), eggs, celery, basil, figs, garlic, maca, pumpkin seeds, fish and nutmeg.

Pair any (or all) of the foods above with a glass of red wine (also known to boost libido) and you’re sure to have a Valentine’s night to remember.
