Is there any link between food and sexual performance for guys?
Absolutely! This is a big topic, of course. I’m going to focus here on a few of the key food nutrients that have a clear link to sexual performance.
First are foods that promote the production of a chemical in the body called nitric oxide. This is actually a gas that is released in minute amounts and is vital to both healthy blood vessels and the ability to get an erection. Nitric oxide is made from an amino acid called arginine. The following foods are rich in arginine:
– Cold-water fish (such as tuna and salmon)
– Soy products
Another class of nutrients important for sexual health is the bioflavonoids. These are plant compounds that work like antioxidants, scavenging by-products of the body’s metabolism or harmful molecules resulting from exposure to environmental pollutants like smog, cigarette smoke, or pesticides. Fruits and vegetables are the main sources of bioflavonoids.
