It’s almost ironic that this phallic-shaped food can have sexual benefits too. Bananas are known to be rich in potassium, vitamins and dietary fiber, making it a nutritious food to keep around when you’re looking for a healthy yet satiating snack. But did you know that this fruit could heat things up below the sheets as well? Read on to know why you’re never going to be able to look at this potent sex food the same way, ever again.

Fuels You With Energy To Keep You Going
Sex is no less than an exercise, you have to flex and stretch throughout the act. It increases your heart rate and works out many muscles. To keep you fueled up, you need to boost your stamina and energy. Bananas not only help you do just that but this potassium-rich food can also prevent muscle cramping, a painful and embarrassing thing when it strikes mid-coitus.

Kick Starts Your Libido, Boosting Sex Drive
Bananas contain an enzyme called bromelain that has been shown to be a good sexual hormone regulator. This can boost sexual desire, function and overall potency. It is also rich in B vitamins such as riboflavin, which is essential for the production of testosterone in men.

Sets The Right Mood
Bananas contain B vitamins and tryptophan that can improve mood, calm down nerves and also support the production of the hormone serotonin, which causes you to relax. All these factors help to improve you attitude and put you in the right mood for sex.
