Best foods to fight erectile dysfunction

There’s great joy in men who satisfactorily perform their “bedroom functions” without reliance on pills, pumps or surgeries.

Erectile dysfunction or impotence can be degrading for single or married men; it is one cause of broken marriages and another reason most men commit suicide, especially when wives nag about their inability to perform or resort to getting sexual satisfaction elsewhere.

Erectile dysfunction remedies

Here are a few foods believed to have “magical” powers for any man with signs of ED although more evidence might be required to prove the potency:


The sweet and refreshing fruit can improve your sex life, experts say, because it has a compound similar to the one found in performance-enhancing pills.

Watermelon has more of water but the other components are more of lycopene, an antioxidant which experts confirmed is very good for your heart, prostate, and skin.


These shellfish are referred to as “aphrodisiacs” by money wise men and women who have experienced its supercharged effects. It boosts testosterone level in men and contributes to an increased libido.

Oysters are packed with zinc, an essential nutrient for everyone. However, you are advised to ensure that it is properly cooked before consumption, especially if you don’t know the source.


You can’t believe that, right. Little wonder most people are addicted.

A cup of coffee in the morning or any time of the day may provide you with the needed sex drive that can rev up your entire sex life. Statistics show that men who gulp more than a cup-worth of caffeine a day are less likely to have erectile dysfunction because caffeine aids blood flow to your veins.

If you really don’t like the taste of coffee – black, brown, sweet or bitter – never to worry, there are lots of teas, sodas and energy drinks with the same content.


Dark chocolates aren’t for women and kids alone. Give yourself the treat once in a while and find out the secrets you would surprisingly uncover. It is very good for your heart. And according to health experts, what’s good for your heart must be good for your willy.

Chocolate is stuffed with flavanols, nutrients from plant which has proven potency to increase blood flow and reduce your chances of having low blood pressure (it also lowers blood pressure for sufferers).

In addition, chocolate help your body build up nitric oxide, an “enforcer” which is found in many ED medications.


While your body needs chocolate to make nitric oxide, walnut is packed with lots of arginine, an amino acid the systems require to make nitric oxide, experts say.

Walnuts are good sources of folic acid, vitamin E, and fiber.

Looking for a way to stay strong in bed? Add a few nuts – groundnuts, coconuts, cashew nuts and more to your daily diet.


Smoothies are really good for your health. Grape juice especially, can be referred to as an “adult drink” although kids tend to love it more. Never mind.

Cure for impotence

Nutrients in quality grape juice include components which also increase the amount of nitric acid in your body. Pomegranate juice is a wonderful addition in this regard.


Most people hate garlic, maybe you do too, but here’s what you’ve been missing: the strong-smelling bulb is damn good for your sexual satisfaction. It clears plaque from the walls of your arteries and allows unhindered blood flow which in turn, leads to a noticeable improvement in your performance level.

Adding a good amount of garlic in your daily diet may be the miracle you need for a younger age in bed.


If you hate chili peppers, cayennes, jalapenos, habaneros and other such additions to your diet, it’s time for a rethink. These provide the heat your arteries need for an increased blood flow to the heart and other organs, including the penis. They have proven effects against cholesterol and low blood pressure, and also prevents blood clots.
