While effective, Viagra comes with many undesirable side effects including vision impairment, priapism (persistent erection), and increased risk of heart attack. Fortunately, there are a lot of natural Viagra foods available.

These foods don’t come with any side effects and are beneficial for enhancing not only your sexual health, but your overall health and wellbeing as well.



These common foods will fire up your desire and make sex more pleasureable. All in all, if you have hit a slump in the bedroom, it may be time to take a closer look at your diet. 

By using pregnenolone cream or pregnenolone supplements, the levels of the compound in the body increases, and this brings about various benefits such as fatigue relief, and delay of the aging process.

1. Oyster

Oysters have long been known as an aphrodisiac. They contains important vitamins including protein, magnesium, and zinc, which have been shown to boost both testosterone levels and sperm count.

Oysters also stimulate the production of dopamine, the feel-good neurotransmitters that are essential for a healthy libido in both men and women.

This shellfish is also rich in T-boosting amino acids, such as D-Aspartic Acid (D-AA) and N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA), which are not common in most foods.


pomegranate

2. Pomegranate

Pomegranate is a rich source of antioxidants which repair damage to blood vessels, consequently increasing blood pressure to the penis. As a result, you will experience increased sex drive and better performance in bed.

If taken daily for at least a month, pomegranate juice will also increase your stamina and energy levels, and reduce your risk of developing heart disease and prostate cancer.


3. Broccoli

As men age, their testosterone levels decline while their estrogen levels increase. Broccoli helps counter this as it contains Diindolylmethane (DIM), a compound that helps flush out excess estrogen that hinders testosterone production.

Actually, among the many foods that contain flavonoids, broccoli has the most beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. Hence, apart from promoting testosterone production, you can also count on broccoli for improving blood circulation.


dark chocolate

4. Dark Chocolate

While other kinds of chocolate tend to taste better, they do you far less good than natural dark chocolate or cacao. It may take some time to get used to the bitter taste especially if you’re used to sweets, but once you appreciate the flavor, you’re in for a great treat.

Chocolate is known to be an effective stress reliever, mainly due to its dopamine-stimulating effect. Dopamine reduces stress, elevates mood, and boosts libido by enhancing your sense of love, passion, and excitement.

Chocolate also contains high levels of antioxidants for improving the immune system and overall health.


5. Banana

Banana is another powerful food for boosting T levels due to its high B vitamin, bromelain, potassium, and magnesium content. These vitamins and minerals also help maintain high energy levels.

Bromelain is an enzyme with ergogenic testosterone-protective effects. During exercise, T levels typically go down, but not with bromelain supplementation.

In a study involving 15 elite cyclists, the group who received a daily dose of 1,000mg of bromelain saw no decline in their testosterone levels, whereas the group that received placebo experienced significant reduction in their T levels after intense training.


eggs

6. Eggs

Eggs are another excellent food for harder erections. They are cheap yet packed with micronutrients and proteins, which are beneficial for increasing hormone production.

Eggs also contain vitamins B5, B6, and D that balance the hormones, relax the blood vessels and the body, and relieve stress, which is one of the primary causes of reduced libido.

Additionally, eggs give an instant energy boost—enhancing stamina, strength, and sexual performance. It’s a good source of aspartic acid and calcium for bone health.

There are many tasty egg recipes but it has been shown that eggs are best eaten raw.


7. Maca

Often referred to as “nature’s Viagra,” maca is a plant native in Peru that has been traditionally used to increase stamina, strength, energy, libido, and fertility. It helps balance the hormones and reverse hyperthyroidism.

Maca root is rich in iron, calcium, zinc, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus, which help improve fertility and sperm quality. It also reduces stress and nourishes the body with vital nutrients.

In addition, maca improves the function of the hypothalamus, the master gland that regulates the function of other glands.


Pumpkin seeds

8. Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkins seeds are rich in zinc and fatty acids, which are essential for regulating the sex hormones. Zinc also plays an important role in the formation of healthy sperm and the production of testosterone.

These seeds are also a great source of vitamins B, C, D, E, and K, as well as calcium, niacin, phosphorous, and potassium. These help stimulate sexual activity and prevent testosterone deficiency.

Eat a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds a day for better overall health. You can eat them alone during snack time or include them in your sandwiches and salads.


9. Garlic

More than being a common spice in the kitchen, garlic has immense health benefits such as treating erectile dysfunction and increasing sex drive.

It contains allicin, which improves blood flow to the genital area by dilating the blood vessels. Its nitric oxide content is responsible for improving erections.

It also helps boost the immune system to fight disease-causing viruses and bacteria. It is a potent anti-inflammatory, making it beneficial for people with chronic pain.

Garlic makes a good addition to many recipes but eating it raw is believed to provide the most benefits. Eat about two to three cloves daily for a month and you will have increased sexual desire.


watermelon

10. Watermelon

The green part just above the skin of the fruit is dense with citrulline, an amino acid that relaxes the blood vessels and improves blood flow to the reproductive system, which in turn increases sex drive.

While 92 percent of watermelon is water, the remaining eight percent contains various nutrients such as vitamins A, B6, and C, as well as a wealth of antioxidants, amino acids, and lycopene.

Not only can these nutrients help enhance sexual health, they also reduce inflammation in the body and provide an overall sense of well-being.


Better Sex Without the Meds

Equipped with this information, you can now be well on your way to having a much better sex life—without having to rely on Sildenafil or any other well-known drug for erectile dysfunction.

This list is by no means exhaustive though. There are many other Viagra foods that naturally boost T levels and prevent or treat erectile dysfunction, such as ashwagandha, ginseng, spinach, artichoke, and more.
