While you are out shopping for your romantic night, be sure to stop by your local health-food store and pick up some wheatgrass.

That’s right. Wheatgrass.

While you may be aware of the many health benefits of wheatgrass, you may not know that this superfood can also make for a better time in the bedroom – and who wouldn’t want that?

Here are some of the ways that wheatgrass can increase libido and help you and your partner maintain a healthy sex life:

  • Wheatgrass can be used to treat sexual dysfunction – Wheatgrass is reported to be a natural cure for erectile dysfunction, as well as hormonal imbalances in both men and women. Forget the Viagra and other medications that come with potentially dangerous side effects. Instead, reach for the healthy cure that can increase blood flow where you need it most. For men and women who suffer from low libido, this safe, all-natural aphrodisiac can rekindle a lost spark.
  • Wheatgrass is believed to restore fertility – If you and your partner are actively trying to have children and are having trouble conceiving, wheatgrass juice may help. Wheatgrass increases blood flow and improves circulation, and as Andy at Health Ambition points out, “Healthy blood flow to the various sexual organs . . . will increase the production of reproductive hormones. Improving blood flow to your genitals is the key to healthy sexual activity and fertility.”
  • Wheatgrass gives you more energy – According to the Hippocrates Health Institute, “When it is consumed fresh, [wheatgrass] is a living food and has bio-electricity. This high vibration energy is literally the life force within the living juice. This resource of life-force energy can potentially unleash powerful renewing vibrations and greater connectivity to one’s inner being.” This means more energy for you, and of course, more energy means increased stamina and vigor. You won’t be zonking out after just one round.
  • Wheatgrass can make you more attractive – Consuming wheatgrass is widely believed to improve your skin tone, slow down the aging process and assist in weight loss. It can even make you smell better by fighting the bacteria that causes bad breath and body odor. All of these things can do more than just make you more attractive to your partner; they can make you feel better about yourself. And when you feel good about yourself, you are less inhibited and more open to fun and games in the bedroom.

Even if you already have a healthy and active sex life, supplementing your healthy diet with wheatgrass is a wellness tip that can benefit anyone. If you try it out, I’d love to hear about your results in the comments.
