Are you in the mood for love?
Although it's tough to tell if any true aphrodisiacs exist, some items are better than others at promoting blood flow and stimulating our senses.
"Hot chilies, hot peppers, hot nights, so if you have the chilies that is going to fire up the romantic evening by increasing the circulation, but increasing blood flow, and by exciting those nerves," says registered dietician Carolyn Snyder with the Cleveland Clinic.
Fresh ginger root may also get your circulatory system flowing. It also contains libido-lifting vitamin C, zinc, and magnesium.
Almonds provide a natural energy booster.
