I’m going to make it easy for you to know what foods to select when you go shopping next time by sticking to a Red colored theme with this post.

The 5 food disused in this post are of the color red.

Yes the famous seduction color RED. Start eating or juicing these foods and your libido will skyrocket. This is because these foods contain a high amount of compounds that help increase nitric oxide production.

Why is nitric oxide so important to our libido and erection quality?

 Nitric oxide is a major vasodilator, as it keeps blood vessels open. When you’re aroused, your brain sends messages to increase production of natural nitric oxide. Natural nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels (vasodilation). When your blood vessels are relaxed as a result of nitric oxide products or natural nitric oxide production more blood can flow to muscles and the soft tissue inside your penis.

Cayenne pepper

 Cayenne pepper benefits are largely due to its antioxidant capsicum compound, but it also has high nutritional value. Research indicates that cayenne pepper stimulates the blood vessel receptor TRPV1 activation which results in an increase of the production of Nitric Oxide in endothelial cells in the cardiovascular system.

This results in the relaxation of blood vessel walls and a decrease in blood pressure. The combination of effects lead to a higher quality erections and sexual health.
