Eating Fruits to Increase your Libido

There are many different types of foods you can try to help increase your sex drive and fight impotence, and most of the fruits that help to increase your sex drive will contain high levels of certain vitamins on minerals which may help to increase hormone levels, increase nitric oxide levels or ramp up your testosterone.

So to get straight into it the first fruit to increase your libido is...


The pomegranate is probably one of the most well known fruits for increasing your sex drive. During a study into the benefits of pomegranate on lowering blood presure and reducing the the risk of heart disease. Scientists found that drinking pomegranate juice can actually increase sex drive.

A number of couples were given pomegranate juice to drink then asked to perform some erotic activities and couples who drank the pomegranate juice showed elevated levels of sexual interest.

The main reason reason pomegranate is so effective is that it helps the body to produce (NO) or nitric oxide which helps to open up blood vessels and increase to blood flow which is great news for the libido.

You can eat pomegranate or drink the juice, the juice is more potent but the fruit can also be very enjoyable to eat and its consider quite an exotic fruit to share with your partner (especially chilled with some shaved ice :) ).

More Fruits


Figs are also very effective at increasing libido in both males and females and its mainly due to the high levels of amino acids found in figs. Amino acids play a vital role in normal sexual function and will help increase levels of nitric oxide in the body.

The fig is said to increase sexual stamina as well as having quite a sexual appearance , flavour and smell to highten all our senses to improve our mood and let our libido's rise from there slumber.


Avocado's are also great for our sex drive and not being your typical fruit is tends to get ignored a fair bit. The Avocado contains high levels of folic acid to help metabolize proteins giving you an energy boost.

Avocado contains good levels of vitamin B6 which help you to fight stress and give you the energy to keep going and also help with the production of testosterone. They are also known to benefit a women's libido due to the high potassium content.

Avocado's also contain healthy fat's we could all do with in our diets :).


Mmm Fruits


The banana is a great way to start your day (banana diet craze) and it will help to boost your libido with the bromelain enzyme it contains. It has one of the highest levels of potassium to help regulate energy levels as well as B vitamins.


How about a date to fight those low energy levels and lack of sex drive , they are packed with amino acids for sexual stamina as well as a good dose of fruity sugars which make them sweet and an amazing pickup.

Give them a go if its been a while since you've had one , they are juicy succulent and very addictive.

Don't forget celery! I just got a juicer and going crazy with all the awesome nutrients to amplify health. Juicing celery doesn't just curb your sweet tooth and help fight cancer but also releases a pheromone to attract the opposite sex. Celery will also help calm you down to get more sleep and keep you full. Celery also improves circulation from chubby to hardy!

expectus (author) from Land Downunder on May 08, 2010:

eating these types of foods will help , its also important to keep up serotonin and other healthy brain chemicals to keep your mood and libido up :) you could also try some l-arginine and l- theanine to improve sexual function as well as improve your mood.

Phil on May 05, 2010:

Thanks for the info.

I'm starting new drug for epilepsy - Topamax.

One of the side effects is impotency which I surely want nothing to do with.

Hopefully the recommendations combat that side effect if it makes its presence
