3 most effective aphrodisiacs to make a man fall in love with you | Joy Nordenstrom
People were talking about it aphrodisiac foods and their ability to increase sex drive in men and women for hundreds of years.
But few have honed in on the science-based reasons why natural aphrodisiacs are a critical supplement to advancing, passionate long-term relationshipsnor did they explain why the order in which you eat certain types of food and drink is a key factor in determining whether or not you will benefit from them.
To begin, let’s make sure you understand the basics.
Aphrodisiac is an agent that enhances sexual desire and increases behaviors that make sex attainable and enjoyable. Essentially, these agents increase your libido, helping you get into the right frame of mind to feel and act sexy.
Your libido, aka sex drive, is defined as “a person’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity.”
To fully understand the effects of aphrodisiacs, it’s important to first have a basic understanding of the chemicals, hormones, and neurotransmitters at play when you initially fall in love, as these are the same agents you hope to bring into play when you eat or drink an aphrodisiac.
The initial rush you feel at the beginning of a relationship stimulates a feeling of euphoria in the brain, somewhat similar to the feeling of being “high” on cocaine.
This is what creates and strengthens the initial foundation of loving memories in relationships. These “love drugs” heighten all five of your senses, help you focus on your love, give you more energy and stamina, embed memories in your mind, and make you feel good.
Truth be told, however, your body is not designed to constantly release these chemicals over the long haul.
Increased levels of adrenaline, endorphins, PEA and norepinephrine will tax your body and brain over time. Plus, it’s hard to function properly in other environments when love completely takes over your mind.
Once you settle into a relationship after a few months or a few years, your chemistry is designed to shift from that initial high to producing more bonding chemicals and hormones. This change is marked by an increase in serotonin, oxytocin and vasopressin and a decrease in testosterone, all aimed at keeping you and your love together for the long haul.
Research shows that couples who regularly do new things together have better and more satisfying relationships.
These new and exciting experiences re-stimulate the production of that chemical cocktail you sipped in the initial stages of falling in love, once again intensifying special moments and strengthening your intimate relationship.
This additional boost becomes more critical over time and will not happen automatically. These moments of re-excitement should be deliberately cultivated.
To fully reap the benefits of aphrodisiac foods, you must first engage your brain.
Engaging all five senses and bringing awareness to your emotional state with background music and a seductive atmosphere will begin to produce endorphins, which in turn stimulate more dopamine production.
These two neurochemicals work in tandem, ensuring that the experience evokes a strong, steady flow of pleasurable sensations.
Norepinephrine is then added to the mix, strengthening memory, improving learning and sharpening your ability to stay focused. It also has positive effects on your arousal, reward system, mood and blood pressure. An increase in norepinephrine can also help you temporarily put aside worries and distractions so that you can have a satisfying sexual experience with your partner.
Dopamine and norepinephrine are synthesized in the body from the amino acids tyrosine and phenylalanine.
Protein-rich foods such as red meat, poultry, seafood, and hard cheeses increase tyrosine levels, aiding in the metabolism of noradrenaline.
Phenylalanine is not produced internally by humans, so it must be found in our diet. Good sources include dairy products, avocados, nuts, seeds, legumes, leafy greens, whole grains, poultry, fish, some seafood, and some diet drinks.
The only neurotransmitter you need to reduce to get the full aphrodisiac effect is serotonin, as lower serotonin levels allow you to hyper-focus on your love.
The primary goal of a meal designed with aphrodisiac foods is to keep serotonin levels super low.
That means tryptophan—an amino acid known for its role in helping Thanksgiving turkey put people to sleep—is off the scene. If tryptophan hits your system before tyrosine, your mood and internal chemistry will be relaxed and calm, rather than excited and full of increased energy.
This means putting away the bread before you eat the protein.
Here are 3 categories of aphrodisiacs for men and women who want to increase their libido quickly:
1. Those involving all five senses
The first category contains those aphrodisiacs that cause the full engagement of your senses, enveloping you and your love before the first sensations of taste enter your mouth.
It’s how you prepare for your love and initially socialize with your love on a date—the music you listen to while getting dressed, the thoughts about what your partner would like to see you wear while choosing clothes, the way you design the environment for awaken romantic feelings with fresh flowers, candles and a playlist of your favorite songs.
These things get your endorphins pumping to set the stage for a night of pleasure.
As Dr. Ruth Westheimer, “When it comes to sex, the most important six inches are the ones between the ears.”
So, the first step towards a night of passion begins with mentally preparing yourself to receive the full benefits of aphrodisiac food. creating a romantic atmosphere.
2. Substances, foods and drinks that give you an immediate effect
The second category is what most people consider aphrodisiacs – substances that immediately increase arousal as soon as they hit your system.
These include alcohol, paprika (spicy food), foods and spices with certain aromas that excite the individual, ginger, ginkgo biloba, and foods or supplements that give you a super dose of vitamin E — such as spinach, avocado, nuts, sunflower seeds, and zucchini.
