Low libido is a problem that can affect your relationships and overall mood – it can be because of a stressful situation at work or due to a health problem. When you consistently experience low libido it is important to consult with your doctor to find out the underlying cause for it. At times, poor blood circulation, problems in the arteries and blood clots can restrict blood flow to the male sexual organs that might also affect libido.

Unless low libido is a result of some serious medical condition it is easy to improve the condition with right food consumption. Consider eating these foods to improve your libido.

Banana: This humble fruit can increase libido as it contains an enzyme called bromelain. This is useful in improving libido. It is also a rich source of potassium and riboflavin that improve energy levels in the body. It is a good idea to consume one banana in the morning or as a pre-lunch snack. You can make healthy smoothies using banana, low-fat dairy or just peel it and chomp.

Nuts: Nuts are a great source of fatty acids needed for many body functions. These fatty acids are a vital component for healthy male hormones. But be mindful to eat nuts without salt. Eat them raw for best results. You can lightly roast almonds to improve their taste. Use nuts in your salads and smoothies to enrich your meals. Add a few almonds to your banana smoothie to further boost your libido. Mix crushed nuts in your salad or you can eat a handful as your evening snack.

Oysters: Oysters are a rich source of zinc, which is needed for healthy sperm production and for proper testosterone levels in the body. This is why maybe oysters have been known as an aphrodisiac. Eat a few raw oysters on a regular basis to improve your libido. The presence of dopamine hormone in oysters also boosts libido.

Avocado: It is a fruit rich in folic acid, potassium and vitamin B6, which are all helpful in improving libido. Eat one avocado every now and then by scooping out its flesh. You can use it in salads also.

Other foods that can improve libido are watermelon, celery and saffron. Consult your doctor for safe supplement use that can boost libido. Supplements like Alpha Elite increase blood flow, improve libido, increase stamina and help to improve overall sexual performance.
