Strawberry cocktail: have a taste of sex appeal

According to Patrick Holford, founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in the UK, strawberries and raspberries are the quintessential summer fruits - are also bursting with sex appeal.

Just a handful of the natural aphrodisiacs can help to boost the sex drive, Patrick Holford said.

The high zinc content is believed to be responsible for their role in boosting sexual prowess and performance.

But one of Wales' leading fruit growers said it was blueberries, and not strawberries and raspberries, which are regarded as nature's Viagra.

And Charles George, who runs The Fruit Garden in Peterson-super-Ely, said most people are attracted to strawberries and raspberries not because of their beneficial health properties but because of their taste, reports

According to If your love life is lying low, try eating strawberries rather than oysters cos if a leading nutritionist is to be believed, they could boost your libido. Eating the whole fruit, rather than removing the seeds, boosts own zinc levels. Zinc is nature's aphrodisiac since it helps the production of testosterone and sperm in men, and high zinc levels reportedly make women more receptive to sex.

Popping a handful of strawberries or raspberries before you go into the bedroom can give your flagging sex life a boost.

"Every time you have sex, or simply want to ready yourself or your partner for sex you should consume a handful of raspberries or strawberries," the report quoted Holford as saying.

"These berries are also incredibly high in anti-oxidants which helps to optimise blood flow to the sex organs, making them extremely beneficial in the bedroom," he added.
