Enhance the romance with these 5 top aphrodisiac foods

The month of love is near, and everybody is getting ready to enhance their experiences. Some search for gifts, others prepare an Engage Proposal, a romantic weekend getaway is also one of the favorites, and many couples prefer to have a romantic dinner. We research for the top aphrodisiac foods you can add to your romantic experience and can boost love!

KEEP HEALTHY & VIGOROUS

1. MACA

A sweet root vegetable from Peru, with several health benefits. It has traditionally been used to enhance fertility and sex drive. It’s also claimed to improve energy and stamina.

Maca root is generally dried and consumed in powder form, but it’s also available in capsules and as a liquid extract. The taste of maca root powder is described as earthy and nutty. You can add it to smoothies, oatmeal, and sweet treats or desserts.

2. GINKO BILOBA

It is an herbal supplement derived from one of the oldest species of trees — the Ginkgo biloba tree. It acts as an aphrodisiac by helping relax blood vessels and increase blood flow.

3. PISTACHIO NUTS

Pistachios may have a variety of health benefits, including helping lower blood pressure, manage weight, and reduce the risk of heart disease, in addition, they have nutritional value and are rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

4. CHOCOLATE

The two compounds that make chocolate an “aphrodisiac” is tryptophan, a building block of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal. The other, phenylethylamine, a stimulant related to amphetamine, is released in the brain when people fall in love.

But, the amounts of these substances are too small to have any measurable effect on desire, so probably this is a psychological aphrodisiac and not a physiological one.

5. OYSTERS

Oysters are extremely rich in zinc, which is essential for testosterone production. Oysters also boost dopamine, a hormone that increases libido in both men and women.

Escape from the routine this February, and enhance your love at Fairmont Mayakoba. We have prepared a Romance Package for you to reconnect with your loved one.
