Recent studies have revealed that women who have sex at least once a week can live longer and boosting performance between the sheets can also protect against disease.

But with busy lifestyles of juggling work and looking after the kids, libidos can flag and getting it on can seem like the last thing on the to-do list.

However, nutritionists say that simple changes such as tweaking your diet can put you in the mood for love and improve your relationship with your partner.

And Charlie Turner and Lee Foster, founders of Neat Nutrition, have come up five foods that can boost your flagging sex life.


Chocolate contains the cacao bean, which is not only known for being an aphrodisiac but also contains an ingredient, phenylethylamine, that has been said to release the same endorphins that we experience during sex.

The ingredient is also able to produce dopamine in the pleasure centres linked to having an orgasm.

The nutritionists suggest swapping milk chocolate for dark chocolate as it boast a higher cacao percentage.


Good nutrition is essential for the healthy production of hormones that maintain libido and allow you to perform in bed.

Studies have shown that a protein-rich diet can help not only maintain a healthy sex drive, but it could boost how much time you spend between the sheets.

Therefore you should up your intake of protein rich foods such as cheese, as well as meat, fish and eggs.


We all know the health benefits of snacking on nuts rather than reaching for crisps or cake.

But as well as being better for the body, nuts, especially almonds and cashews contain zinc and omega 3
fatty acids, which are essential for blood flow, which boosts libido.

They also have high levels of dopamine, which helps trigger arousal in the same way as chocolate.


Not only are they the most popular item on the brunch menu, avocados are also packed with monounsaturated healthy fats and vitamin B6, all of which help keep your energy and sex drive up.

They are also a great source of omega 3, which is a proven mood-booster meaning you’re more likley to be up for it.


Ginger has been celebrated all over the world for centuries because of its numerous health benefits.

The unique spice boosts the immune system and fights off colds, and is even greater for your libido as it warms the blood and acts as a stimulant to circulatory system, increasing blood flow to the genitals.
