As men age, their sex drive naturally begins to decline. While pharmaceuticals like Viagra and Levitra work as a short-term solution for many males, an informed trip to the grocery store may be a healthier, more natural way to restore your virility. Vitamins found in many popular foods are commonly known to increase male libido. Further, a healthy diet will slow ageing and prevent disease which themselves can interfere with a normal sex drive.

Zinc

Testosterone levels play a significant role in male libido. Zinc boosts production of this hormone. It also increases your sperm count and health. Accordingly, an insufficient zinc intake may result in low sperm count and fertility problems. Besides enhancing sex drive, zinc also enhances your immune system. Foods rich in zinc include oysters, chicken, steak, eggs, peanut butter, pine nuts, and milk.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E also boosts testosterone production and may increase male fertility. Asparagus is rich in vitamin E as well as mustard greens, turnip greens, brussels sprouts, blueberries, and broccoli. Besides preserving libido, the vitamin also can help prevent or treat acne, diabetes, PMS, and stroke.

B Vitamins

Several B vitamins help with male libido, including B5, B6, and B12. Avocados are rich in B6. Eggs are a great source of B5 and B6 which also decrease stress and balance hormone levels. Salmon and other kinds of fish have B5 and B6 as well as B12 which ensure good reproductive health.

Selenium

Almost half of the male body's selenium is found in the seminal ducts and testes. Selenium assists sperm production. Foods with high selenium content include Brazil nuts, tuna, oysters, orange roughy and wheat flour.

Magnesium

Magnesium increases production of sex hormones such as oestrogen, androgen, as well as various neurotransmitters that boost sex drive. Magnesium-rich foods include artichokes, bananas, dried figs, prune juice, yoghurt, spinach and potatoes.
