According to research, nearly 15% of men and 70% of women lack the urge to have sex regularly

This is so because most people experience low libido which can happen to anyone and at any stage of life. 

However, if you are experiencing a low sex drive, below are a few foods that can contribute to a higher libido and increased sexual satisfaction.

Strawberries

According to Penmedicine, strawberries are very active when it comes to boosting libido because strawberries are rich in Vitamin C which is a vitamin that can enhance one’s sexual urge

Strawberries are also beneficial if you are hoping to conceive because they contain folic acid which the body uses to produce a sperm cell

Chocolates

A study titled "The Journal of Sexual Medicine" reveals that women who eat chocolates every day have a more active sex life than those who don’t.

Chocolates contain Phenethylamine which  is a chemical that is found naturally in the body. 

 Phenethylamine helps to improve mood and attention, therefore it is believed that this chemical helps the chocolate to produce the feeling of being in love

Peanut

Consumption of peanuts increases blood flow to the sexual organs in both men and women. 

According to research, Peanuts are rich in Amino acid L-arginine which helps with erectile dysfunction.

The presence of Amino acid L-arginine in peanuts also  helps to dilate the blood vessels chiefly in the penis

Avocado

The presence of Vitamin B6 in avocados makes it reduces symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (such as tiredness and irritability), therefore making it easier for “women to get in the mood”.

Avocados are also a great source of monounsaturated fat

Monounsaturated fat is a type of fat that reduces bad cholesterol levels which helps in sperm production

Cold Water Fish

According to Livestrong, Sardines, Tilapia, Salmon and other cold fish are rich in Omega 3 fats which help with sexual response, by helping to raise dopamine levels in the brain that trigger arousal.
