Just after your period but before you ovulate, Alisi suggests incorporating the ancient aphrodisiac honey into your diet. Science hasn’t confirmed its link to sex drive, but it contains Boron and Nitric Oxide – essential compounds or arousal.
Antioxidant and phytochemical rich, figs are the perfect snack for balancing out your hormones. While they’re apparently also associated with arousal, they’re also a healthy choice for your body.
After you ovulate but before your period, Alisi recommends asparagus. Packed full of aspartic acid, these can help prevent the fatigue you feel coming on just before your period starts.
Avocados were revered by the Aztecs for their ability to incite sexual passion, states Alisi. But they’re also a great source of bioidentical testosterone, which will help your body if it’s lacking in the natural verison. While you might think testosterone is just for the boys, women produce it in smaller doses too, and we need it to maintain things like sex drive and muscle mass.
