You must have heard that vegetarians don’t have good sex life. So, let’s have look on why is it so? Mostly vegetarian diets are deficient in some nutrients which are responsible for better sex life such as zinc, protein, omega 3 fatty acids. Your diet plays an important role in determining how good or bad your sex drive is. As far as you eat a balanced diet, you don’t need to worry. If you are a vegetarian, don’t worry there are some other options which you can try to boost your sex life.
Include Zinc rich Foods:
Zinc is the SUPERFOOD to boost your sex life. Zinc required to prevent testosterone deficiency, for sufficient sperm production, increase sperm count, and to spark sexual desire. As most of the zinc sources are non vegetarian such as oyster, meat and shellfish, thus for vegetarians main concern is zinc deficiency. But still if you are vegetarian you can consume more of zinc from your veg diet such as nuts, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas and some low fat dairy products.
Go for High Protein:
The amount of protein consumption in diet plays an important role in sex drive. As we know, non vegetarian sources such as fish, chicken, meat, eggs contain more of protein. But if you include vegetarian protein rich food in higher amount to your diet such as milk and milk products like cheese, paneer, curd, buttermilk and soy and tofu, will benefit you.
Add some Omega -3’s:
Special nutrient Omega-3 fatty acid is mostly available in fish and fish oil, which improves your blood circulation. And for better sex life it’s necessary to have good blood flow. But when it comes to vegetarians, they seem to be deficient in essential fatty acids. The great alternative for fish is nuts which are packed with essential fatty acid and rich in special amino acid L-arginine which enhances your erectile response, improves circulation and even help to reduce your cholesterol.
Special veg foods:
Even if you are vegetarian don’t worry. There are some special VEG SEX BOOSTER FOODS which you can include to your diet like- Garlic, Dark chocolates, Nuts, banana, pomegranate, figs, dates and avocado.
Ultimately if your diet is well balanced, low in fat, high in protein, zinc and if you maintain your body weight you will find that even vegetarian diet helps for better sex drive
