I absolutely love strawberries. It's up there alongside mangoes as one of my favourite fruits.
I interviewed an Australian nutritionist for an online article last week and she was telling me how important it was for one's sex life. I knew that already but the fact that the body tends to assimilate its nutrients much faster got my attention.
The seeds of the strawberry contain high levels of zinc which have often been related to sex. It's not just an important component for men but for women as well. For the males, it helps upping testosterone levels and for us women, zinc helps our bodies prepare for sex more quickly if the levels are raised. Simply put, we get into the mood faster.
She recommends that men and women consume a handful of strawberries or even raspberries to get ready for sex.
Besides the effects of zinc, these fruits are also high in anti-oxidants which help to optimise the blood flow to the sex organs. Just a few of them will do the trick due to its low glycaemic load as compared to any other fruit. This means that they provide a sustained energy level at only a few calories. But seriously, if you are going to have a good workout in bed, you won't worry too much since you would have burnt it all up after.
I like mine plain but occasionally bring in a can of whipped cream. I have a friend who swears by having hers with peanut butter. To each his own. Just sink your teeth in them, enjoy its glorious natural taste and garner its benefits in bed.
Missus Singapore out!
