They say food is the way to the heart, so to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend; here are five natural aphrodisiacs with surprising health properties, to ignite a fire in the heart and loins of your loved one.

Caviar is high in zinc, which stimulates the formation of testosterone to maintain male functionality.

Caviar’s reputation as an aphrodisiac could also be aided by the fact it is considered a delicacy, and therefore served in the finest of restaurants.

"Dinner for two, please."


“An entrée serving of caviar can cost upwards of one hundred dollars, so there is definitely something decadent and romantic about spending that type of money for a special occasion,” says former chef, Cathryn Ames.

Flavanoids contained in another favourite food, chocolate, have been proven to lower an individual’s blood pressure and lead them to feel more relaxed.

Chocolate also contains caffeine, which increases serotonin levels in the brain, contributing to excessive feelings of love and happiness.

Chocolates are a classic gift for that special someone


“Chocolate has an alluring quality, and it can be used in themed cakes, biscuits and slices for any occassion to awaken the passion,” says Ames.

Banana may have a suggestive appearance, but studies have also proven that an enzyme it contains, called bromelain, will enhance a male’s confidence and performance in the bedroom.

Avocado is another fruit with sex appeal, due to its high Vitamin E content that has been recorded to boost individual feelings of arousal, and the intensity of orgasms.

"Both banana and avocado have a lustrous, rich texture that looks simply divine on a plate," says Ames.

The classic oyster has also been found to contain amino acids that triggers the production of sex hormones such as testosterone and oestrogen, leading to a natural desire for physical contact.

"Is there something naughty about this banana?"


“Oysters are another special treat that couples rarely indulge in, and their reputation as an aphrodisiac gives oysters a mythical quality,” says Ames.

So this weekend, perhaps serve your loved one caviar for an entrée, oysters for a main, and chocolate with banana for dessert; to get those romantic sparks flying!
