Zinc: helps to put “lead in the pencil” by increasing sperm count. Zinc helps to increase testosterone levels in both men and women. It is also a mineral lacking in many of our diets, so stock up on nuts, red meat and eggs.
Omega-3 fatty acids: helps to increase circulation, great for the heart, reduces inflammation. Essential fatty acids great for brain function – our brain is the largest sex organ in the body. Can be found in salmon, walnuts, avocados, fish oil capsules.
