Chocolate: Choose your chocolate carefully, as not all chocs are bad. Go for dark chocolate that contains a minimum of 70 percent cocoa, as it will be the most nutritious way to consume this delicious, sensual food! Dark chocolate is naturally high in manyantioxidants. Choose raw for the highest possible levels of naturally occurring nutrients. Chocolate is rich in L-tryptophan, which is aprecursor to serotonin. With good levels of serotonin, we feel happier and this decreases our stress levels. Dark chocolate also contains phenyl ethylamine, which is the same ‘feel good’ chemical that the body produces during those first moments of falling in love.
Peppermint: The menthol in peppermint has been shown to reduce testosterone levels, sending your s3x drive plummeting. And while bad breath is a turn-off, definitely do not chew gum, as chewing brings more air into your system, making you prone to burp.
Tonic water: This often contains quinine, which is used as a flavouring agent in tonic water and some other beverages. Quinine has been used as an anti-malarial agent, but it’s been linked to a decrease in s3xual function, so avoid before s 3x.
