Every woman wants a healthy and active sex life, but all too often, we forget that we cannot enjoy lovemaking if we aren’t physically fit.

A proper diet combined with exercise can affect every aspect of our lives. We are born with one body, and will not get another one. If we expect the one we have to serve us well, we have to take care of it.

One important way of taking care of the body we have is to feed it a balanced diet of nourishing foods—and stay away from those that are detrimental to it.

There’s no one right way to eat that will apply to every human body because each one is unique. And, because of illness, stress, aging, exposure to toxins, the quality of the food supply, and many other factors—no single diet is the ideal diet for everyone at every stage in life. But, there are some basic guidelines that can help you find the regimen that’s right for you.

Pile love foods on your plate by getting what you need in the way of sex vitamins and minerals—vitamins A, C and E, plus selenium. Foods low in fat and high in nutrients will help you keep healthier and enhance your sex drive.

Loving tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C—which aids in the formation of hormones that are involved in sexual vitality such as estrogen, and progesterone. Passionate peaches are rich in vitamin A, which is important for sexual health—providing various benefits such as a strong thyroid and the making of the hormone progesterone.

Erotic black beans are high in another sex vitamin that helps you stay energized and feeling sexually vibrant. Steamy hot onions can help stave off heart disease so that you don’t need heart disease drugs, which zap a man’s libido and sexual performance. Sensual clams can have amatory effects due to their high levels of zinc, which has been shown to help control prostatitis and impotence.

Diet experts say that the exotic banana is rich in potassium, which is essential for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles—the key to successful lovemaking. The magical asparagus is a rich source of potassium, phosphorous and calcium—all of which are essential for energy, and it stimulates the urinary tract and kidneys.

Whatever diet you follow, select fresh foods whenever possible. A varied diet also helps avoid getting too much of something that’s not good for you. One thing for sure—a prudent and carefully planned diet can be one of the best tactics for a healthier sex life and longevity.
