With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d share our top five aphrodisiac foods, which are well worth weaving into your menu this year. Known to have the ability to fire up passion in whoever eats them – these foods are sure to make this Valentine’s Day the sauciest yet!
Did you know chillis are fiery in more ways than one? A chemical found in the pepper – capsaicin is commonly known to increase circulation and boost libido.
The vitamin E in avocados help your body to churn out more hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.
Besides relaxing you faster than a neck rub can, red wine contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that helps boost blood flow, but be sure to drink in moderation!
Ok, ok it’s a cliché – but oysters really are a powerful aphrodisiac. This super shellfish is brimming with zinc – a mineral which boosts the all-important hormone – testosterone.
Like most seafood, salmon is a great aphrodisiac. As a source of protein, salmon is also loaded with lots of Omega 3, which is proven to increase serotonin levels in the brain and enhance mood! This Valentine’s Day why not stock up on our Saucy Salmon fillets with Chilli Lime and Ginger Sauce? With two fresh fish fillets in a pack, and two aphrodisiacs in one dish – it’s the perfect meal time option to share with your SOLEmate (sorry, we had to get a fish pun in there somewhere!)
