12 Amazing Foods That Naturally Boost Male Libido to its Young Level


Some people believe that men never have libido issues as if they were ever-hungry sex machines always longing for some fresh meat to have fun with. That couldn’t be MORE wrong that it already sounds.

Decrease or loss in sex drive is a health condition like any other, and this is true for both men and women alike. The possible reasons are manifold: chronic fatigue, stress, concurrent illnesses, depression, poor nutrition, bad habits… We could go on with this list for hours on end.

The question is: what can YOU do to help yourself? Is there a way to naturally boost your libido without having to resort to some heavy pharmaceutical artillery or expensive psychotherapy?

Of course, there is! To boost your sex drive the natural way all you have to do is eat the right stuff.

Gentlemen, men the ultimate list of aphrodisiacs: foods that can easily boost your libido if you eat the stuff daily. Let’s go!



Natural Libido Booster #1: Oysters

This one is an all-time favorite. According to legends, oysters were among the favorite foods of such prominent figures like the Egyptian queen Cleopatra and Don Juan, the libertine heartbreaker (he had a real-life prototype, in case if you didn’t know), as these slimy mollusks helped them to stay in good shape for their amorous achievements. We don’t know about Cleopatra, but Don Juan was likely right: oysters are insanely rich in zinc, which is a confirmed testosterone booster. More testosterone = enhanced sex drive. Way to go!

Natural Libido Booster #2: Asparagus

This one can be quite problematic to put your hands on (at least in some regions) but trust me, it’s worth the effort. Asparagus is a powerful natural source of vitamin B, a nutrient that’s essential to ensure healthy nerve transmission. Both libido and erectile function heavily rely on the health of your autonomous (sympathetic and parasympathetic) nervous system, so keep it fit with enough vitamin B.

Natural Libido Booster #3: Watermelon

Watermelon contains citrulline, an amino acid that’s converted in the human body into arginine, another amino acid. The latter is the precursor for nitric oxide, the most powerful systemic vasodilator in the human body, and one of the most important components to ensure rock-hard erections. And let’s face the truth for a second here: it’s hard to NOT want sex when you’ve got a massive boner waiting to be put to good work.

Natural Libido Booster #4: Avocados

Besides being a delicious and utterly healthy food rich in so-called “healthy” fats (namely MUFAs, monounsaturated fatty acids), avocados are scientifically confirmed testosterone boosters. Being the primary male hormone, the big T plays a great role in ensuring healthy libido in any man.

Natural Libido Booster #5: Pumpkin Seeds

Just like the first item on this list (oysters), pumpkin seeds are a wonderful source of zinc – a foolproof testosterone booster. Also, they are the perfect snack to munch on the go if you care for your health and physique, packed with a whole bunch of healthy fibers and beneficial nutrients like vitamin B, C, E, D, and K.

Natural Libido Booster #6: Maca

Maca is a Latin American favorite. Maca root is sometimes even referred to as “the Peruvian Viagra” for its ability to enhance erectile function, boost fertility, and spark sex drive. Additionally, maca is a rich source of antioxidants – natural anti-inflammatory agents that could alleviate the course of any chronic illnesses you might have, as sometimes they can mess up sex drive quite badly.

Natural Libido Booster #7: Cocoa & Chocolate

Do you know why millions of people around the world absolutely LOVE chocolate? It doesn’t even have to be sweet: the bitter kinds are also fabulous. Most likely, cocoa and chocolate are so popular due to the high amount of flavonoids present in them – natural phytochemicals that show prominent anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and endorphin-like action. Chocolate literally makes you feel happy, and there’s no way around it: it works. Taking into account that one of the most common reasons for low sex drive is chronic stress and depression, treating yourself to some chocolate from time to time will absolutely be a great idea.



Natural Libido Booster #8: Celery

Okay, you’ve got me here: celery isn’t really an aphrodisiac. BUT some bright minds in the scientific and nutritional world (including Dr. Mark Anderson, author of Stay Young: 10 Proven Steps to Natural Health) affirm that the phytonutrients in celery can increase the content of pheromones in male sweat. There is certain evidence that men who secrete more pheromones are generally more attractive to women. Nothing like a gorgeous beauty to spark that hidden sex drive in you, am I right? 🙂

Natural Libido Booster #9: Ginger

In the world of phytotherapy and herbalism, ginger is a classic tonic and adaptogen, meaning that it is believed to increase vitality, fill you with extra energy, and make you more motivated to achieve your goals every single day. Some people report that it does a fabulous job in fighting back depression, anxiety, psychological fatigue, and chronic stress, making this food a promising libido booster.

Natural Libido Booster #10: Chili Peppers

It’s safe to say that chili peppers are a popular symbol of sex and everything kinky, so just thinking of that you’re already setting your mood on the right track for some bedroom action. However, that’s just the start of chili’s benefits for you. The main alkaloid of chili pepper is known as capsaicin – an it’s this substance that gives pepper its blazing hot flavor. Capsaicin is a powerful tonic that can increase heart rate and elevate blood pressure, turning your inner engine quite “ON” and helping to achieve some really solid erections. Just make sure to abstain from applying it topically.

Natural Libido Booster #11: Garlic

Garlic is a scientifically confirmed testosterone booster with double action: besides elevating your levels of this crucial male hormone, this delicious food also increases nitric oxide (NO) levels TWOFOLD or even threefold when taken with a good dose of vitamin C. Testosterone enhances your libido while nitric oxide improves the quality of your erections. Win-win!

Natural Libido Booster #12: Pomegranate

Pomegranate is another classic, often included into natural libido-boosting supplements thanks for its action. Rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, pomegranate is another delicious testosterone booster that Mother Nature can offer you. Also, pomegranate is known for its ability to reduce stress and fight back depression in a safe way without any side effects whatsoever.

Summary

Most of the foods mentioned in this fabulous list increase your libido by boosting your testosterone first – the essential male hormone that ensures sex drive, aids in building muscle, improves physical performance and even increases motivation and aggressiveness to reach your goals.

However, take into account that the abovementioned foods will start working in about 3-4 weeks of daily consumption. If you want some quicker action, consider stacking on testosterone-boosting supplements. They are just as natural as the foods above but work faster and are much more powerful in general, allowing you to achieve better results in about 2 weeks of supplementation.

CrossFit Games: What to Know & How to Prep for 2018!


What’s the difference between the CrossFit Open and CrossFit Games?

CrossFit Open is the first step in qualifying for the CrossFit Games, the ultimate test to find the Fittest on Earth™. The CrossFit Open is a five-week challenge consisting of 5 workouts; one released every Thursday throughout. After it’s released, anyone registered for the Open will have until 5 p.m. PT the following Monday to input in their best score online.  One unique thing about the CrossFit Open versus other fitness competitions is that any athlete at any level, anywhere in the world, can participate as long as they are 14 years or older.

Top athletes from each region qualify to advance to the second stage of competition: regionals. This time the competition is live and much more intense as there is only a small percentage of people that will qualify to advance.

The Rebook CrossFit Games are only for the top competitors out of the hundreds of thousands that competed in the Open and those who made it to regionals. There are spots for 40 men, 40 women, 80 teenagers, and 240 masters (ages 40+).

Reasons to run your first race in 2017


It’s hard to believe that we’re already in the final quarter of 2017, and for many of us, we may feel like another year has gone by where we have failed to hit — or even try to hit — any of our health or fitness-related goals. Plus, many folks describe Halloween now as being the beginning of the holiday season — what with all the Halloween sweets abounding from practically every direction, at every store — and before too long, it’ll be Thanksgiving, and then the endless holiday season, and ten pounds later, we’ll all be heavier, crankier, and less healthy versions of ourselves. Sound familiar?

The good thing, of course, is that it’s never too late to start making smart decisions to help take care of your health. In fact, I’d even argue that October is a great time to start! It takes a good 28 days or so to establish a habit, so as we enter what is the busiest and most stressful time of year for many of us, it’ll be awesome to have a great exercise and health-related habit in your back pocket.

This is also a fantastic time of year to be a runner. With the seasons changing and the air cooling — for most of us, anyway — this is the time of year that runners live for. There’s no shortage of races, either, especially with the fun, themed ones like Turkey Trots, Santa Runs, or Jingle Jaunts, and the distances range from neighborhood 5ks all the way up to and beyond the marathon.

If you haven’t yet already, I’d encourage you to make 2017 the year you run your first race, and by starting your training in October, I bet you’d be able to safely run a 5k or 10k by December 31. Below, I’ll describe some reasons as to why you should finally pull the trigger and run your first race in 2017. They include:

You’ll be going into the three-month-long holiday season with a healthy habit in place. Halloween-New Year’s can be hell for nutrition and wellness, so it’s even more important that we all take care of ourselves during this busy and stressful time of year. It takes about a month to develop a habit, and you may find that there are plenty of “couch to 5k” programs out there that last about that long, plus a few extra weeks. It’ll behoove you to take extra good care of yourself and your health during this time; why not do it by working toward a goal, like a 5k?



Having a race date on the calendar will give you some accountability. Accountability and motivation can be two really tough challenges for runners of all abilities and years of experience, and many of us attest that having a race on the calendar — something for which we are actively training — can be what gets us out of bed in the morning every day, even if we’re tired, hungry, grumpy, not wanting to run in the cold, (or insert any other excuse here). You don’t have to feel like you must train for your first race like you’re going to win the thing; aim to just complete it! That’s a great goal for your first race.

Doing something new is exciting and challenging. As adults, so infrequently do we ever have the opportunity to do something new. New things are inherently exciting and challenging, and for many of us, we may have never run an entire mile in our lives before, leaving us questioning our ability to both train for and complete a 5k between mid October and December 31. That’s ok! Give yourself the opportunity to do something outside your comfort zone for once, and you’ll be surprised at what you can do, as long as you give yourself a chance. We often implore our children to be brave, to take chances; it’s high time that we begin to heed our own advice.

You’ll build a ton of mental toughness and strength from training. Running is inherently hard work — no doubt about it — but I’d argue that it’s precisely because it’s so hard that it’s also really, really gratifying. As you train to complete your first 5k before the end of 2017, you will likely have moments when you wonder if you’re even capable of doing this in the first place. That’s great! It’s wonderful to have these moments of self-doubt; it’s what makes you human. Showing up to each run and workout that you have, ready to go, ready to try to do your best, is an excellent trait that’ll carry over to other aspects of your life. Sometimes life throws us curveballs and challenges that we seriously question our ability to handle, and yet more often than not, we persevere. We navigate stormy seas and work through challenges that test every fiber of our being, and in the end, we often come out the other side stronger. So, too, is it with running. Some days you’ll have runs that leave you gasping for air, wondering if you can pull off another rep, another interval, another mile — whatever — and I bet you’ll be surprised what you can pull off. The resilience and mental conditioning — what I lovingly refer to as “mental callusing” — that you get from training you’ll be able to effortlessly transfer over to other aspects of your life.

You’ll be surprised at how much fun you can have in the process. Finally, having a race on your calendar will give you opportunities every week to have more fun than you could have ever imagined. Seriously! Running is a very versatile sport, simply because you can do it by yourself or with others, and runners are typically very welcoming and social people. If you’re looking for a way to meet other like-minded people, joining a running club, or attending a running store’s weekly fun run events, is a great avenue. Not every run has to be totally exhausting and serious, of course, and it’s usually community fun runs that running stores organize that become huge social outings each week. It’s a win-win proposition: not only do you do something positive for your health, but you also get to see some friends — and possibly make some new ones — and have a good time in the process.

Don’t be too alarmed that it’s already nearly mid-October, and definitely don’t think that whatever health and fitness goals that you have yet to realize have become completely unattainable by now. Instead, check out an online race calendar, pick a 5k between now and the end of December, and get training! You will have so much fun in the process, you’ll be doing something great for your health, and who knows? Maybe you’ll make some wonderful new friends in the process. Remember, first, to talk to your medical professional to get clearance before beginning a new exercise routine. Provided that he/she says you’re good to go, go ahead and get moving! Make the final quarter of 2017 your best one yet!

Best 4 Supplements While On Diet For CrossFit Athletes


Weight loss is a wider scope that the world today focuses on especially for the athletes. All athletes require specialized nutritional and exercise care for them to remain fit and healthy throughout their lifetime in the sports career. The athletes’ researchers and medical experts navigate through diet, yoga and nutritional supplements to give many alternatives and healthy weight maintenance tactics for every athlete. Whereas many supplements may be found to have numerous benefits when applied in proper dosage, it is important to note that every face has its own spot. For example, HCG diet drops program challenges min 40 pounds in a month and the every person should follow HCG diet strictly while taking HCG drops. However, some supplements may have health effects ranging from lesser to mild effects. This calls for every athlete to properly consult their medical experts before they start using either of the supplements from my list. There are many nutritional supplements recommendations suggested by experts but the following is the best 4 supplements to help you.

Caffeine

Caffeine is a bitter substance or chemical that usually occurs in over 60 plants and plant products such as tea leaves, coffee beans, cocoa pods used to make chocolate products, synthetic caffeine, which is used as a supplement or added to diets, beverages or medicinal constituents, kola nuts which normally used to make soft drinks for instance the cola drinks.
In most cases in the world today, many people take at least 8-12 ounce can of either coffee, cola, tea or energy drink.
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, which makes athletes to feel more awake and act as an energizer. It also supports the body mechanisms to lose excess water and salts through urination. Drinking three cups a day activates dopamine and increases the brain functioning and general performance. This supplement when used in proper doses can improve athletes’ performance in their career. The health experts affirm that taking caffeine drinks prior to workouts increases one’s performance through body stimulation. Here are the key benefits of caffeine in athletes;
It boosts muscle mass and physical fitness. Caffeine increases the heart rhythm and pulse rate. This is a mythical concept that explains the bursting energy during athlete workout training sessions. As a stimulant, caffeine mobilizes fat reservoirs and boosts the body metabolic mechanisms to burn more fat for fuel hence sparing glycogen.
It minimizes the muscle pain during workouts. It helps to lower soreness. It also improves overall performance and reduces perceived exertion.
This supplement is believed too to have many health effects including insomnia, dehydration, anxiety, headaches, restlessness, abnormal heartbeat, high blood pressure, and high dependency. This normally occurs when one takes a harmful threshold of more than 400 mg.
However much this is recommended by health experts, it also requires that when eating or drinking it you consider monitoring your temperance.



Anabolic Steroids

Anabolic steroids are synthetic variations of the male sex hormone testosterone and are believed to have a significant role in muscle building. As some researchers would say, the use of performance-boosting drugs like steroids is rare yet it plays a significant role during workouts.
For athletes using anabolic steroids, they enjoy performance endurance benefits over their colleagues who are not using it. It boosts muscle mass and strength, faster healing and increases the body size.
This supplement can be taken orally as a pill, powder or it can be done through injections if the medical practitioner identifies many health benefits with the athlete.

Ephedra And Ephedrine Alkaloids

Ephedrine is a CNS stimulant and is usually used as an energizer. It is recommended for athletes who want to lose weight and increase their general fitness in sports. When ephedrine alkaloid is used together with caffeine or other alternative food supplements which contains ephedra with or with no herbs consisting of caffeine, it acts as a weight loss supplement. Ephedrine is mostly found in cold medicines and decongestion, medicinal products normally prescribed for asthmatic patients. They work best in athletes up to 6 months from the time of use. These alkaloids activate the secretion of norepinephrine found in neurons and boosts the stimulation of alpha and beta receptor cells. Products containing ephedra are recommended to be taken with minerals, vitamins and other plant products to boost energy and improve athlete performance.

Creatine

Creatine is a chemical substance that is usually found in the body muscles and the brain. This substance is majorly extracted from seafood and red meat and can be manufactured or be prepared through laboratory procedures. Health experts associate creatine with muscle building and improved general workout performance in young and aged adults. This supplement is so beneficial for all vegetarians with lower total creatine levels (LTCLs) and therefore a given dosage or threshold is considered to enhance its effectiveness. The athletes commencing with high creatine dosage does not end up well with it and may not have as much benefits as those with lower creatine thresholds. It is recommendable that creatine is to be used orally for up to 5 years but higher dosage must be avoided, as it has harmful health effects. Some health setbacks of high levels of creatine is nausea, muscle cramping, stomach pain, dysfunction of the liver, kidney and the heart.
It is important to note that while using creatine, you need to take sufficient quantities of water to prevent dehydration. When creatine is used, it stimulates the muscle cells to draw water from the rest of the body and excessive of this without taking a balanced quantity of water may lead to severe dehydration.
For the adults, creatine can be taken orally. Adult athletes can start with a short-term loading dose and later on upgrade to a long-term maintenance dose. Short-term loading dose can be 10-35 grams every day for 4-10 days whereas maintenance dose is just 2-9 grams every day.
The children also are recommended to take creatine orally. The most recommendable dosage is 400-800 grams of creatine per kg body weight for up to 8 years. Alternatively, a threshold of 4-8 grams of creatine is recommended for children daily for up to 2 years.
All the above supplements are nutritional diets crossfit athletes must watch. They have important health building and maintainance elements, which one can not find anywhere. In some continents like in the United States, all these supplements have been subsdized for every athlete to access but under strict conformation to the rule of law. Have a plan and purchase those that best Suit your body’s health without causing any health complications.
