Can Eating Bananas Help Your Sex Life?

Can Eating Bananas Help Your Sex Life?

Yes, it sure can. This fruit isn’t going to turn you into the next Fitbit champion- well, maybe it will- but it can keep your system on track and raring to go when you want it.

Bananas might not come to mind as the sexiest food out there. You might think of oysters or complicated martinis and plates full of chocolate dipped strawberries, in that department, but not really that phallic yellow fruit.

Is this a good idea, though? Here are some reasons to think twice. When you review the facts, a monkey’s favorite fruit can actually be an excellent choice to boost your bedroom drama.

Check it out. Here are four ways eating bananas can help your sex life:

1) They Can Raise Testosterone

Bromelain is an enzyme found in bananas that can help to boost sex drive in men, and some women. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to trigger a higher production of testosterone.

Since proper levels of testosterone are said to be a crucial component of a healthy sex drive, grab some fruit on the go.

Eat a banana split for dessert and you’ll be happy you did. You can congratulate yourself on making a good choice.

2) They Calm Your Nervous System

A second reason that bananas are the fruit of the frolicking gods is that they’re a natural beta blocker. This means they can prevent the adrenaline in your system from binding to beta receptors. Why does this matter? It lowers your pulse and blood pressure, resulting in a more relaxed you, and a relaxed you is a version that’s comfortable in your own skin.

Remember, it takes time for these things to take effect. Eat a banana a half an hour before that big date, and you’re cruisin’.

3) They Can Help Your Muscles

Any athlete worth their salt will tell you that bananas are famously high in potassium. This is great because just like a beta-blocker, potassium can calm you down by decreasing your blood volume and blood pressure, contributing to mellowing you out.

Hey, they don’t call it mellow yellow for nothin’, I guess.

Another bonus is that having enough of potassium in your system can also increase your muscle strength.

You need enough potassium in your muscles to properly contract and relax your muscles. Eating bananas will keep your reflexes up to par and stimulate neural connectivity of your muscles, turning you into the active sex god/goddess you know you really are.

4) They Can Protect Your Immune System

Vitamin B, also known as riboflavin, is another friend found in bananas. One large banana has about 38 per cent of the Institute of Medicine’s Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamin B-6, for people under the age of 50.

The reason this is helpful for your sex life is that B vitamins are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system and decent blood sugar levels.

If you’re shacked up in bed with a terrible cold, or going crazy-angry because your blood sugar is out of whack, your partner isn’t likely to be impressed. Grab some fruit salad and stay in the zone.
