Yes, there are such foods, accessible to anyone. However, this kind of foods are not aphrodisiacs with ‘pseudo-miraculous’ effect.
1. Pomegranate Juice
An American study reached to the conclusion that, consumed regularly, pomegranate juice fights against erectile dysfunctions. Moreover, the participants to this study noticed a visible amelioration of the erectile function after several weeks.
How does it work? Some scientists thought about its antioxidant effect, others sustain that pomegranate juice protects the nitrogen monoxide (NO) from the body, an indispensable chemical compound for erection.
2. Grape fruit
Grape fruit and pomelo give a real ‘boost’ to the erectile function, but only if they are frequently consumed and in a considerable quantity. They contain naringenin, a substance found in meds specially created for erectile dysfunctions (they inhibit PDE5 – Phosphodiesterase type 5 – an enzyme partially responsible for a flabby penis).
Furthermore, an Israelian study proved that the consume of pomelo reduces with 20 % the blood concentration in the bad cholesterol (LDL) and with 17 % the level of triglycerides (other noxious fats).
3. Fat Fish and Rape Seed Oil
Tunny fish, salmon, mackerel or rape seed oil are very indicated in the treatment of erectile dysfunctions and they must be consumed many times per week. They contain fat omega-3 acids have a protective cardiovascular effect. They reduce the size of atheroma plaque and thus, the patients with coronary infections have the cells of the arterial walls covered with bad cholesterol that acts as a screen against the nitrogen monoxide. Beware that omega-3 acids are destroyed by boiling (frying) at high temperature.
4. Cocoa Is Not Just A Myth!
Used in small quantities, cocoa has a benefic effect on the sexual and cardiovascular health. According to a recent published study, polyphenols (antioxidants) from cocoa determine the drop of the blood pressure and they have a protective cardiovascular effect, which is useful for the erectile function. Yet, you should avoid fat chocolate that covers the artery and choose sweets with simple cocoa.
