A study in the American Journal of Cardiology found that you can improve erectile function by consuming more omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium, folic acid, and foods that boost testosterone. Here, we present you with a drink that has all of those: the unrivaled pick-me-up in a cup, the Sex Shake.
1 cup blueberries
1 whole frozen banana
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
½ cup plain yogurt
½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon spirulina powder
Blueberries are high in free-radical-fighting antioxidants, which stimulate production of nitric oxide (NO), a key ingredient in maintaining erectile function.
Bananas are rich in potassium, a mineral that can protect you from the emasculating effects of a high-salt diet.
Flaxseed is full of omega-3s, which promote arterial health by lowering blood pressure and stimulating NO production.
Yogurt is a good source of calcium, an important mineral for elevating NO production.
Whole milk is a great source of protein that boosts testosterone levels.
Spirulina, a type of blue-green algae, is high in protein and omega-3s and is an excellent source of folic acid, another nutrient that is NO-friendly.
