Nicholas Culpepper, a renowned English botanist and herbalist, once stated that asparagus “stirs up lust in man and woman.” Some people say asparagus is considered an aphrodisiac simply because of its phallic shape, but in fact its suggestive form has nothing to do with its aphrodisiac effect. Rich in potassium, folic acid and vitamin E, it can stimulate sex hormones as well as enhance your general well-being.

The word “caviar” derives from the Persian word “khav-yar”, which means “cake of strength.” It is said to help us restore our physical power and enhance good health. Caviar is a famous party food and also regularly served by most airlines to their first-class passengers. Loaded with vitamin A, zinc and omega-3 fatty acid, it is believed to increase blood flow to the genitals and stimulate the formation of testosterone. For people who have to limit their cholesterol and sodium intake, however, caviar should only be a rare treat.

Oysters have long been considered a very effective aphrodisiac. Dated back to the early second century AD, in a satire by a Roman poet, Juvenal, he described how women acted so loudly after having some wine and giant oysters! What makes oysters such a popular aphrodisiac is the fact that these slimy mollusks contain a high level of zinc. Zinc deficiency, as nutritionists point out, can cause impotence in men. Any food rich in zinc, therefore, has a beneficial effect on the libido.
