Could FRUIT help prevent bedroom problems?

For thousands of years, berries – especially strawberries – have been used as aphrodisiacs.

In more recent years, though, their amorous effect has been dismissed as folk medicine…an old wives’ tale…and even flat-out hogwash.

But brand new research brings us full circle, confirming that the ancients knew a thing or two about medicine after all – because scientists say berries can actually help prevent having problems with your get-up-and-go.

Overall, eating plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits will cut your risk of dysfunction down below by 14 percent. Combine a diet rich in fruits with exercise, and your risk of embarrassing performance problems drops by 21 percent.

But some fruits are better than others – and the researchers behind the study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition say the biggest benefit comes from fruits rich in anthocyanins, which provide rich red, dark blue, and deep purple colors.

Yes – strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and blackberries…just like the ancients knew all along!

According to the sizeable study of 50,000 men, the next-best fruits are the ones that contain flavanones and flavones. For the most part, those are citrus fruits.

These fruits work in getting you frisky because antioxidants and anthocyanins are circulation boosters and powerful inflammation-fighters – and one of the biggest causes of dormancy “down there” is poor circulation. Inflammation certainly isn’t going to make it any better.

The researchers behind the new study say that even a couple extra servings of fruit a week are enough to make a difference. But why stop there? Replace your daily snack with berries, and enjoy all the benefits that come from better circulation – including improvements in brain and heart health.

If you still need a little more oomph below the belt, don’t turn to medications.

Turn to natural therapies – starting with simple, safe and science-backed lifestyle changes.
