foods lower sex drive

Physical issues that can cause low libido include low testosterone, prescription medicines, too little or too much exercise, and alcohol and drug use. Psychological issues can include depression, stress, and problems in your relationship.

Your doctor may recommend therapy if the issue is psychological. In many cases, a low libido points to a desire for a closer connection with your partner – one that isn’t sexual, but still intimate. It can help to talk through these issues with a therapist, either alone or with your partner. If the issue is depression, antidepressants can help. Some of them actually lower your sex drive, though.

Other common remedies are healthier lifestyle choices, improvement in diet, regular exercise and enough sleep, low alcohol intake and stressbusters.

However even food items cause lower sex libido.

Did you ever really how certain foods can kill your desire to get intimate? Yes, the following foods can make you abhor sex forever before you even realise it.

Foods that make you Hate Sex

Fish

Don’t be surprised at this. The industrial waste and chemicals that build up in fish, dairy, and meat products can simply exterminate sex drive in women. Hence, it is good to have these products in moderation.

Mint

The mouth fresheners you’ve stuffing your mouth with can make you a spoil sport in bed. Mint is known to produce menthol, the secondary alcohol. This is what imparts a cooling effect on the body and sex drive. So make sure you stay away from mint mouth fresheners. Try chewing ginger instead. The herb heat up your body and spices up your love life!

Microwavable Popcorn

Surprised? Did you know the non-stick chemicals used in the inner lining of microwave popcorn bags and in non-stick pots and pans contain perfluoroalkyl acids? These are common types include PFOA or PFOS. Unfortunately, these chemicals can really kill sexual desire.

Fried Foods

Now you have another reason to stay away from French fries, pakoras, samosas, etc. These foods are high in trans fat content. Apart from affecting your health, these foods can prove to be a serious libido depressor. Your French fries and samosas will lower testosterone levels, making you hate sex more than ever! Hence, it is wise to substitute a baked potato for fired food. This will help in increasing dopamine levels (also known as the ‘desire hormone’) and facilitate manufacturing of histamine, the natural compound known for its orgasm potential.

Alcohol

Did you know a few drinks may significantly lower your sex drive? It is true that drinking regularly can lead to chemical reaction in the body that impairs nervous system. This also inhibits the manufacturing of testosterone, the sex hormone. It is true that your favourite cocktail may give you the gut to talk to the most attractive man around. However, it can badly interfere in your bedroom activity by making you less sensitive and drowsy.

Coffee

The morning cup of coffee may help you jump start your day, but it will certainly spoil your sultry night. Caffeine can be a serious stressor on the body. It causes decreased cortisol and severe hormone imbalances. So stay away from your cuppa!
