In addition to traditionally being used as a medicinal herb for many conditions, including joint inflammation, tooth infections, and respiratory problems, cloves were used as a libido enhancer in East Asian countries. "With a natural ability to improve circulation, nutritionally speaking, cloves are also a good source of vitamin K, magnesium, vitamin C, and calcium,” Lisa Moskovitz, registered dietitian and CEO of New York Nutrition Group, says.
Just hearing the words "filet mignon" is usually enough to turn on the carnivores of the world, but eating it is even better. "While it's not an everyday food, lean cuts of beef such as tenderloin are an excellent source of oxygen-pumping iron, testosterone-boosting zinc, and amino acid L-arginine, which has been linked to enhancing libido and energizing B vitamins," Moskovitz says. She recommends sticking to small portions, or better yet, sharing with your partner for a romantic meal for two.
