If you’ve not been feeling like indulging in sexual activity over the last few weeks, then it could mean that you’re going through a reduced sex drive. Your sex drive is something that is determined by a variety of factors such as mood, physical health and mental health.

However, the good news is that by including certain foods in your diet, you can boost your sex drive. We tell you which items boost your sex drive.

Watermelon

“Watermelon contains the phytonutrient citrulline that gets converted into arginine. This amino acid helps in relaxing the blood vessels, which further leads to improved blood flow to the penis and therefore, boosts sex drive,” says Delhi-based Dr Sunita Arora, who works at Fortis Bloom IVF Centre, Fortis La Femme.

Potassium

Foods high in potassium like avocado, dried apricots, coconut water are rich in Potassium. Low level of potassium causes imbalances in electrolytes and leads to high blood pressure which can result in erectile dysfunction. Avoid foods high in sugar and fat as these can be a major cause for erectile dysfunction.
