There are key food nutrients that are linked to sexual performance. Foods that promote the production of a nitric oxide is one. Nitric oxide is a gas that is release in small amounts in the tissues of the penis, clitoris and labia during sexual arousal — it’s what opens up blood vessels, allowing for the swelling and increased sensitivity that come with sexual excitement.
Foods rich in nitric oxide include:
Cold-water fish such as salmon and tuna
Another set of key nutrients are bioflavonoids. These are plant compounds that provide a huge dose of antioxidants to the body. It is found in more than 900 food items but are mainly found in fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Some of the best sources for bioflavonoids include:
Berries, cherries, grapes, fruit skins, and true fruit juices
True teas (not herbal teas)
Whole grains, celery, parsley, and herbs
Grapefruit, oranges, apple skins, berries, onions, endive, radishes, tomatoes, leeks, broccoli, and red wine
