If your sex life is lacking you may need to look at changing your diet. There are many natural foods out there proven to improve your sex drive; one of these is pumpkin seeds. Here are seven ways pumpkin seeds can have a positive impact on your love life.
Zinc- Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, said to be THE 'sex mineral'. Zinc increases sperm production, motility and count, helps the male body to produce testosterone; it also increases sexual desire in women.
Vitamin E and selenium-These antioxidants are good for the arteries, which, in turn helps the blood flow when you're exerting yourself.
Omega 3s- These fatty acids create prostaglandins which increase sexual desire. Omega 3s also have the power to act as a natural antidepressant and help to keep the mind balanced- which is essential for a healthy sex drive.
Arginine- Pumpkin seeds are also loaded with arginine, an amino acid that precedes nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide encourages the vessels to dilate- which helps the blood flow to your genitals.
Calcium, potassium, niacin and phosphorus- These minerals are considered essentials for sex drive and pumpkin seeds contain all four.
Lubrication- Pumpkins seeds are believed to help sustain lubrication in women, lessening the need for reapplication of manmade lubricants.
Myosin- These little seeds also contain myosin, another amino acid thought to be essential for muscle contractions, which may be necessary for good sex.
