Strawberries are one of the best foods for sex, so on National Pick Strawberries Day- we are here to tell you why.
Strawberries are busting with anti-oxidants which benefit your heart and arteries. You need a good strong heart and circulation for sexual function so arrange a 'pick your own punnet' day out now the weather is better.
They also have lots of vitamin c which is directly linked to higher sperm counts in men- so if you are trying for a family- this is what he needs to be eating for dessert, in his cereal as part of your sexual play- wherever you can pack them into your diet.
In fact- if you dip them in dark chocolate- this contains methylxanthines that activate the libido- and never has there been a better excuse to have a box of these fruits in your fridge.
These are one of the only fruits that you can actually eat the seeds from- and the seeds have iron in them which governs testosterone- needed in sperm production. And as an added bonus- if your zinc levels are high, then you are preparing your body more quickly for sex.
A man can reduce his iron level to zero after just three sex sessions in a day- so make sure he is topped up.
Patrick Holford, founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition said; "My message is simple: every time you have sex, or simply want to ready yourself or your partner for sex you should consume a handful of raspberries or strawberries.
"And it's not just the zinc content of the berries which is beneficial in the bedroom.
"They are incredibly high in anti-oxidants which help to optimise blood flow to the sex organs, and they have the lowest glycaemic load of any fruit meaning they provide sustained energy levels at only a few calories."
Laurence Olins, chairman of British Summer Fruits, said: "Let this be a call to arms for the men and women of the UK.
"The findings show berries to be as close as you can get to the perfect fruit." Yes indeed!
