As we age, maintaining sexual health and feeling sexy becomes increasingly essential.
We are NOT dead yet, so there’s is no reason our sex lives should be.

Sex is good for you!,
Benefits of a healthy sex life include:
-Strengthened immune system
-Lower blood pressure
-Better sleep
-Increased libido
-Higher self-esteem
-Reduced stress
-Strengthened pelvic floor

Feeling sexy is a superpower, but your libido can be complex. Sex drive can fluctuate significantly depending on your habits, mindset, and hormone levels. And speaking of hormones, around age 50, women’s ovaries begin producing decreasing amounts of estrogen and progesterone, which only complicates the situation.

Your sex life can be nourished with the right foods!
As Dr. Dean Ornish says, diet and lifestyle changes that improve heart health, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes, and reduce risks of cancer and most other chronic diseases also enhance your sexual health. What’s good for your heart is good for your brain and the rest of your body.

Filling your body with processed, gluten-laden, sugary artificial ingredients is a health and libido killer.

A diet filled with plants, nuts, seeds, and clean protein supports overall wellness and a healthy sex drive by increasing blood circulation to all the right places!

Here are 6 everyday superfoods to enhance your libido!

Spinach: This leafy green is packed with magnesium, a mineral that promotes blood vessel health and enhances blood flow. Incorporating spinach into your diet can improve mood and increase vitality, where it matters the most.

Garlic: Known for its heart-healthy benefits, garlic contains allicin, which supports cardiovascular function. By keeping the heart healthy, garlic indirectly promotes sexual activity by ensuring adequate blood flow to all the right places.

Watermelon: Watermelon contains citrulline, an amino acid that converts to arginine in the body. Arginine plays a crucial role in vasodilation, enhancing circulation and potentially boosting libido. YAY!

Blueberries: Packed with antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, associated with a reduced risk of erectile dysfunction in men. Incorporating blueberries into your diet can support overall vascular health and promote sexual well-being.

Sweet Potatoes: Rich in iron, vitamin C, and potassium a trifecta of benefits for sexual health. Iron supports energy levels, vitamin C promotes collagen production for anti-aging benefits, and potassium helps counteract bloating while boosting circulation. Hard to feel sexy when bloated.

Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate stimulates the release of serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters associated with happiness and relaxation, creating an ideal state for intimacy.

Your sexual vitality doesn’t come with an expiration date if you feedit properly.
