Health.com lists some of the food ingredients that are not only historically considered to be aphrodisiacs, but have modern-day science backing up their claims:
Avocados are rich in heart-healthy fats, and anything that keeps your heart beating strong helps keep blood flowing to the right places.
Almonds are nutrient-dense and rich in trace minerals that are important for sexual health and reproduction, such as zinc, selenium, and vitamin E.
Strawberries are an excellent source of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps ward off birth defects and may also be tied to higher sperm counts.
Oysters are one of the best sources of zinc, and oily fish like wild salmon and herring contain heart-healthy omega-3 fats.
Arugula contains trace minerals and antioxidants that block absorption of environmental contaminants thought to negatively impact your libido.
Figs contain fiber, which is important for heart health.
Any citrus fruit is rich antioxidants, vitamin C, and folic acid, all of which are essential for men's reproductive health.
