If lockdown has killed your libido then try these foods to boost your sex drive

HAS the pandemic killed your sex drive?

You are not alone.

It’s been revealed 64 per cent of adults in a relationship have experienced lower libido over the past six months.

Here, experts recommend foods to boost your sex drive.

AVOCAD-OH!: Stephanie Taylor, from Kegel8, says: “The avocado fruit is packed full of healthy fats, vitamin B-6 and potassium, all of which boost your libido and also support the vagina’s natural ability to take care of itself.”

Giselle says: “Head to Morrisons for a pack of Naturally Wonky Avocados, £2.40 for a 1kg bag (approx five avocados).”

HARD TO BEET: Experts at Feel – a nutrition subscription firm – have created top aphrodisiac meals, including beetroot carpaccio.

Beetroot is a natural vasodilator, meaning it can boost blood flow.

Giselle says: “I love Nature’s Pick cooked beetroot, 49p for 500g at Aldi, less than a 300g pack of Morrisons Natural cooked beetroot for 90p.”

SAVING: 41p, plus get extra 200g

GREAT SCOT: Surprisingly perhaps, Scotland’s national dish, haggis, is a libido-boosting love potion.

Dr John Babraj, nutritional expert from Abertay University, says: “Haggis has high zinc content, amino acids, protein, vitamins and slow-release energy from the oats to increase your libido and stamina.”

Giselle says: “Buy ready-made haggis at Sainsbury’s where 400g packs of Macsween Haggis are £2.80 (working out at £7 per kg), cheaper than Waitrose where 500g packs are £3.60 (£7.20 per kg).

SAVING: 20p per kilo

SPICE THINGS UP: Heat things up with chilli, which can improve blood flow downstairs and contains chemical capsaicin, known to boost testosterone levels and increase libido.

Go own-brand with Tesco Hot Chilli Powder, £1 for 100g – cheaper than Schwartz Chilli Powder Hot, £1.60 for 38g.

SAVING: 60p, plus more powder
