Here are some foods to boost libido and sexual health
One of the 62 symptoms of prolonged COVID-19 is reduced libido or sex drive, according to a new study published in Nature Medicine.
She also stated that sex is one of the three pillars of health—after eating and sleeping—in Ayurveda. Describing the reasons behind lower sex drive, Juhi Pandey, fertility consultant at Dost Fertility said, ”For a person who is already struggling with fatigue and is unable to return to their daily routine, it is very natural not to have sexual desire. Additionally, social distancing, quarantine, anxiety, depression, and isolation have also been detrimental to mental and emotional health. Therefore, it has an effect on sexual drive.”
While many are running behind supplements to assist their sexual health, Dr.Radhamony suggests having food that improves Agni” so that your body can absorb all the nutrients from the actual food”.
Here are a few foods you can eat to enhance libido and sexual health, according to the ayurvedic expert.
Pomegranate: It helps to increase libido and reproductive fluid quality if consumed on a daily basis. “Amazing for women who are trying to conceive,” she says.
Barley soup: It assists in stimulating circulation to the genitals. It also helps men to have a better erection.
Dates: The expert said that dates are helpful for men’s sexual health and fecundity.
Black gram soup cooked with ghee and rock sugar:This is a medicinal recipe mentioned in Caraka Samhita for improvement of libido, she explained. She advised the Pitta people not to consume it.
Moringa:It is “the best one for improving sperm and ovum”. She recommended the inclusion of Moringa leaves and pestles in a cooked form in your diet.
