Hooray! Olives really are aphrodisiacs!
Yup. It's true. Besides being one of the oldest and healthiest foods known to man, Olives are also a natural aphrodisiac capable of doing wonders in the downstairs departments of all sexes.
Packed with antioxidants, olives, and their oil, have been used for centuries for health. “Olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are critical for a healthy heart, smooth blood flow, and stable hormone production, all needed to keep the brain, prostate and penis in good shape,” says the medical profession.
Both green and dark olives are natural aphrodisiacs with green olives believed to make men more virile while dark olives are known for increasing a woman’s sex drive. Clearly, being healthy is crucial to having a good sex life and, this is the fun bit, having a good sex life is pretty important to health (remember “Health and Efficiency?” please click with a degree of caution lest you frighten the horses and are on a work computer).
Olive oil: what can’t it do? Experts sing its praises for all manner of things, including sexual stimulation (massage, anyone?). Olive oil is rich in essential fatty acids that supply the sex organs with important nutrients and enhance testosterone production. Its many other health benefits will help keep you in peak physical condition which really is also a must for an A-list sex life...
Let's make the most of it... love bombs!
