Juice your way to better sex

Juice your way to better sex

We certainly don’t need the approach of February, the month of Cupid’s arrow, to be our excuse to finding ways to ‘juice-up’ an intimate relationship. Anytime will do, preferably starting today, to try this clean and healthy method for increasing you and your partner’s appetite for love.

Juice your way to better sex

You already know that juice has a ton of health benefits—it can help you detox, strengthen your immune system, treat stomach issues, and strengthen your bones. But did you know it can also enhance your sex life in a major way?

Nutrition specialist Drew Canole is all about juicing for its between-the-sheets benefits. So much so that he’s created two recipes—one for women and one for men—made up of a unique blend of vitamins and hormones that’ll keep things steamy from start to finish. Start by stocking your fridge with these super veggies:

Carrots: These little orange buddies are high in vitamin A, which stimulates the epithelial tissue throughout the entire body—and yeah, we mean everywhere. Cough cough.

Celery Stalks: They’re not just great with buffalo wings; they also contain androsterone, a hormone that stimulates the sex drive.

Cucumber: Extra hydration gives a boost in stamina and endurance—and no one’s ever complained about having too much stamina and endurance.

Kale Leaves: Tasty and high in zinc, often called “the ultimate sex mineral” for its libido-boosting superpowers.

Knuckle of Ginger: You know what they say…a knuckle of ginger a day reduces free radicals in your blood, improving blood flow to all your happy places. Oh, is that not how the saying goes?

Garlic Clove: It may not do much for your breath, but garlic increases nitric oxide production, which is primarily responsible for health erections. Sooo, extra garlic for dinner it is!

Lemon: Too much acidity in the body can lead to health issues, but lemon balances that out, alkalizing the body for higher performance. Bow-chicka-wow-wow…

Knuckle of Turmeric: This superfood contains compounds that decrease inflammation and maximize blood flow, increasing sexual desire and performance.

Got it? Get blending. You can drink these mixes straight, or stir them up with protein powder and ice for a filling breakfast. Just try not to be late for work because you’re too busy getting busy thanks to these recipes:

For Her:
4 Carrots
2 Celery Stalks
½ Cucumber
3 Kale Leaves
1 Knuckle of Ginger

For Him:
1 Cucumber
3 Stalks of Celery
1 Garlic Clove
1 Lemon
1 Knuckle of Turmeric

Happy juicing!

So filling and fulfilling
So filling and fulfilling

I had one of my ‘wow” meals all planned. A summertime lunch served alongside the pool, with five hungry kids, and as many adults, feasting on my favourite veggie burgers. Only with so many wonderful salads, dips and hot dish recipes to try, share and repeat, the burger meal somehow took a back seat.
