Aphrodisiacs you didn’t know about

When someone says aphrodisiac, we usually think of chocolate or cinnamon. Did you know that greater power lies in other foods and plants? See which one.

Hot peppers

Your blood will “dance” with them. The angrier, the better. Capsaicin gives chili, jalapeno and habanero peppers anger and “fire” and increases circulation, blood flow. Some research shows that capsaicin releases endorphins, the so-called happiness hormone.

Red wine

The Italians, based on research that included 800 women, concluded that those who drank two glasses of red wine a day had a better sex life and desires than those women who did not drink it or consumed other alcoholic beverages. But beware, too much wine could have the opposite effect.
