Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners contain aspartame, an ingredient that causes trouble for your body's happy hormone (serotonin), without which your mood and libido tends to suffer. Not only this, aspartame has other side effects as well, such as headaches, irritation, anxiety disorders and insomnia. So, next time when you are out getting your groceries, pick up some natural sweeteners like honey or jaggery, to keep your health and sex life on right track.

Corn flakes

The anti-aphrodisiac qualities of corn flakes might come as a surprise to many. Did you know that Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, made this cereal as a part of a bland diet to lower people's sex drive? So, whether you are planning a romantic breakfast in bed or a quick snack before your bed-time, it is best to stay away from corn flakes.

Cheese and more

The dairy products that you get in the market these days are not natural, anymore. The high-fat dairy products, such as cheese, can cause a lot of damage to your body. Overconsumption of such products will induce toxins that will interfere with the production of the natural, mood uplifting hormones like oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Collection of such harmful toxins in your body, can also cause sexual dysfunction in extreme cases. 

Crispy delights

A pack of chips by your bedside is enough to damage the tissues and cells of your body, along with your libido. These potato chips and crispy snacks are prepared in rancid oils and heated at very high temperatures. Hence, the combination of bad fats and high temperature can genuinely interfere with your mood for love.

Coffee

A cup of coffee in the morning can induce a happy mood but too much of it can spike up stress hormones, such as cortisol, in your body. Too much caffeine can cause stress and hormonal imbalances. So, if you are in mood for some romance and love, it is best to decrease the coffee intake from your and your partner's diet.

Soy

It is healthy and a good replacement for meat. But, soy contains phytoestrogens that competes with the male sex hormone. It is enough to cause fertility issues, male breast growth and body hair loss, it is a strict no-no for men.

Aerated Drinks

Consuming regular sodas and flavoured beverages can cause fluctuations in your weight and your mood. Such drinks can cause a number of health problems like obesity, dental cavities, diabetes, and more. It is quite obvious that if you start suffering from these health issues then it is harmful enough to even dip your libido levels. 

Mint

Think before you pop another gum into your mouth! While it benefits the digestive system and gets rid of that bad breath, it can also have adverse effects on your libido. Mint produces menthol that cools down the sex drive. So, stick to brushing your teeth or consuming natural herbs to get rid of that bad breath.

Alcohol

You might feel relaxed after a few drinks but alcohol can actually make you feel drowsy and less sensitive to your surroundings. Now can you feel romantic with a person who is falling all-over the place? It is because alcohol induces a chemical reaction that hampers the production of testosterone. Next time, if you are planning to get cosy with your partner, it is best to steer clear from alcohol.

Fried and junk food

Fried food, like French fries and hamburger, are serious romance killers! The hydrogenated fats lowers your testosterone levels, and can also cause low quality and abnormal sperm production in men. If you are in mood to impress your partner with take-out dinner, stay away from all fast food joints, especially if you are planning something romantic.

So, if you are in the mood to get cosy with your partner then it is best to kick these anti-aphrodisiac foods away from your platter.
