Love Ingredients For This Year’s Valentine

It’s not a myth that some foods have an aphrodisiac effect on your brain and body. However, you don’t really take that into consideration when deciding your diet. This is a big mistake if you ask me, ‘love ingredients’ are essential for a better and happier life. As we all know that the things we put in our bodies have a direct impact on just about everything we do, so why not this? By eating the right foods, you can change your brain chemistry and hormone levels, making your love life better than ever before.

We wouldn’t ever suggest ingesting estrogen pills, so your best alternative, food wise, is to eat foods that contain an estrogen-like substance called phytoestrogen. There are a ton of tasty treats that can boost your fake estrogen, including apples, ginger, plums, wheat, tomatoes, chick peas, garlic and oregano. In fact, pretty much all the ingredients in a good pasta dish with tomato sauce will boost your phytoestrogen, spike your oxytocin levels, and leave you feeling fat and happy.

Some foods will reduce your stress levels, improve your blood flow and have other beneficial psychoactive properties, all in a natural way. So before you pay outrageous amounts of money on remedies with unknown side effects, try adding some of these foods to your diet. I guarantee that your body, and your partner, will be very grateful:

  1. Chocolate tastes good. Moreover, it’s a great source of dopamine, which can cause oxytocin, the love hormone, levels to rise in your brain.

  2. Asparagus was described by early 17th century doctors as one of the best love ingredients. Asparagus is a great source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A, vitamin C, and folic acid. The latter is said to boost histamine production, a chemical used by both sexes and gives them the ability to reach ultimate levels of love and passion.

  3. Apples are somehow like chocolate, they contain polyphenols and antioxidants that stimulate blood flow from the heart to the brain. In addition researchers say apples contain phloridzin, a chemical similar to estradiol, a female hormone that pushes women to feel more in need for love and affection.
