Many Nigerian families usually include vegetables in their daily menu because they add flavor to their dishes. Little did they know that some vegetables have benefits beyond flavor and aroma. DEBORAH OCHENI reports.
Making vegetables a part of your daily menu is one of the most powerful ways to influence your body’s performance in all areas of health, including sex. Spinach has been considered one of the best testosterone-boosting foods by both nutritionists and doctors.
Research has shown that for those ready to embrace a more energetic sex drive, spinach might just hit the spot. While there are many nutritional supplements that can give you the boost to be sexually active, nothing beats natural foods.
Spinach, commonly referred to as “Efo” or green spinach, is one of the best dietary sources of magnesium. According to research, magnesium is a mineral that is actually involved in muscle development and is important and essential for reproductive function in old and young men who are sedentary and active.

Eating spinach gets you in the mood by increasing blood flow below the belt. “Spinach is high in magnesium, a mineral that reduces inflammation in blood vessels and increases blood flow,” explains Cassie Bjork in Healthy Simple Life.
Similarly, psychotherapist and sex expert Tammy Nelson said that eating spinach increases circulation and gets blood flowing to the extremities, which, like Viagra, can increase arousal and make sex more pleasurable.
“Women will find it easier to have an orgasm and men will find that erections come more naturally, so you can make each other swoon with spinach,” he said. dr Ijaja Onuche, executive director of Nissi Hospital, confirmed that the presence of Viagra in spinach makes it a good meal for those looking to improve their libido.
“Spinach is healthy and very nutritious, it contains the Viagra element and Viagra helps delay ejaculation while promoting stigma. Spinach is a good meal for those looking to improve their libido. Another natural herbal blend that activates male vitality with safe, powerful, all-natural and fast-acting testosterone that excels in support is Perfomax and Revive,” added Onuche.
