Aphrodisiacs seem to be effective on sluggish blood or poor slowing circulation, which can stem from a host of problems like narrowing of the arteries and veins. There are a variety of aphrodisiacs to help stimulate blood flow and get the circulation moving.
A natural aphrodisiac that doesn’t require you to orally take anything is exercise. The exercise can be from walking to running or dance. It can be any type of exercise that will increase energy and will help the circulation to move the blood.
Niacin a B vitamin known for “flushing” can increase circulation but overall taking a daily multi-vitamin has its place as an aphrodisiac because of the combined properties of the vitamins as a whole. For instance vitamin E can reduce bruising, which is basically a blood clot.
Cayenne pepper is another circulation booster that could cause “flushing” and may help to break up cholesterol. Algae supplementation is rich in vitamins and minerals and could either replace or add to daily multi-vitamins.
Garlic has been thought to work as an aphrodisiac possibly due to its ability to thin the blood making it more able to pass through narrow passageways or to increase blood flow in normal passageways. Onions because of their relation to garlic may work as well. Aspirin with its thinning of the blood properties could also be an aphrodisiac.
Foods rich in protein are potential aphrodisiacs. This makes nuts and beans healthy foods with aphrodisiac potential. Because they are protein foods and can substitute meats this may make them more appealing to vegetarians.
Fish oil supplements are blood thinners and can boost health through its content of omega 3. It also represents seafood, which has long been thought to have an aphrodisiac affect.
Ginkgo is an ancient herbal that is believed to have existed in prehistoric times and is a blood thinner, which makes it an aphrodisiac.
The herbal ginger, which helps motion sickness and nausea, may be able to stabilize the consistency of blood flow bringing about better circulation. Ginger when taken alone probably won’t taste so good, usually herbals have a bitter taste, and so to sweeten you might try adding some cinnamon. Cinnamon is much healthier than sugar and may increase circulation.
Water is an aphrodisiac aid. Staying hydrated is the format for keeping enough liquid in the bloodstream for the blood to travel. Sports drinks may also be beneficial in staying hydrated.
