Gather guys, the listed foods will not only help boost your erection, it will also help you perform very well in bed according to sexperts.
Do you know foods can do the work of Viagra and help you be a better man in bed? Here are the list of 6 foods you can use to top your bedroom game as revealed by Dailystar.
A recent study by scientists at Harvard and the University of East Anglia looked into the best grub to chow down on if you want to stay hard.
Researchers found that men who indulged in a glass of red wine and regularly chomped on citrus fruits were much less likely to develop erectile dysfunction.
In fact, if guys had between three and four portions of flavonoid-rich foods each week they’d reduce the risk of the problem by 21%.
Professor Aedin Cassidy explained: "This is the first study to look at the association between flavonoids and erectile dysfunction, which affects up to half of all middle-aged and older men.
"Men who regularly consumed foods high in these flavonoids were less likely to suffer erectile dysfunction. In terms of quantities, we're talking just a few portions a week."
In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, nutritional expert Professor Derek Stewart explained the importance of healthy eating in preserving penis health.
He said: “First and foremost make sure you have a healthy diet and take part in some form of physical activity.
“This should significantly reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction whilst giving a general overall better quality of life.
“Many of the components that we eat get into the blood stream (either directly or following digestion by the bacteria in our colon) and once there, these compounds can exert their effect.”
Here are the best foods and drinks for a healthy p*nis:
A kick of caffeine can perk you up in more ways than one.
Not only does coffee boost your metabolism and get your blood pumping, it can also make you last longer in the sack.
A hot cup can release fat stores giving you more energy to keep going all night.
Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Centre at Houston found that lads who downed the caffeine equivalent of two to three cups of coffee each day were less likely to have erection issues compared to non-coffee drinkers.
Interestingly the connection between caffeine and strong erections was most apparent in overweight guys – perhaps because carrying too many extra pounds can cause you to go limp.
Everyone knows they’re an aphrodisiac, but did you know they could improve your going power? Oysters are rich in zinc and vitamin B6 are vital for testosterone which makes sure you’re sex drive stays revved up.
Eating pig, which contains vitamin B1, keeps your nervous system healthy and makes sure your sperm is firing full throttle. If you can’t or don’t eat pork, you can eat beans or wholemeal bread instead.
Onions and garlic contain the phytochemical called allicin which thins the blood and enhances your circulation.
This means it’s less likely to clot or clog.
Chew on some parsley or peppermints afterwards to freshen your breath before the bedroom.
Believe it or not, red wine works in the same way that viagra does. It’s a great source of the antioxidant resveratrol which helps to open the arteries by enhancing the production of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide lets blood vessels expand, which is how viagra works.
But while the little blue pill only works on tiny blood vessels, resveratrol helps your main arteries too.
Don’t get too carried away with the tipple though as too much booze can have the opposite effect on your tackle.
Eating humble blackcurrants is one of the best way to stave off penis problems.
A recent University of East Anglia study found that men who look after themselves by working out and eating a diet rich in flavonoids (naturally occurring compounds in fruit and vegetables) are less likely to suffer from ED.
Researchers began by tracking the flavonoid intake in 25,000 men over a 10 year period.
Out of the six most commonly eaten flavonoids, three were beneficial: anthocyanins, flavanones and flavones.
The men who regularly munched on foods high in these flavonoids were 10% less likely to have erection issues.
Professor Derek said: “Blackcurrants contain a high number of anthocyanins, which possess the ability to relax and facilitate better blood flow, which in turn helps to reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction.”
