Ever since I started as a vegan it has occurred to me that more and more people are changing to a vegan diet. Yet, it also occurred to me that most people think it is hard, too hard for some. And I agree to a certain point. If you see vegan as a strict diet thing, then it is. But if you see vegan as a life philosophy, then it becomes easier.
Now for those that are not ready to grab the full vegan diet, here are six reasons to vegan for your sex drive. Admit it – you want to go vegan now!
Vegan up – Viagra not needed 🙂
So here we go
1. Smooth and Silky Skin
Feeling comfortable in the skin you’re in is necessary to boost your sex drive in between the sheets. If you’re self-conscious about your skin, you are less likely to be confident during sex. A vegan diet can help you achieve smooth, silky, and glowing skin because it contains a higher content of vitamin C — essential for collagen metabolism increasing the elasticity of your skin — found in fruits and vegetables. It’s best to opt for fruits and veggies high in antioxidants to help counteract the effects of free radicals and anti-inflammatory agents.
A diet characterized by high calories, high glycemic, high fat, and meat foods can contribute to acne breakouts, according to a 2012 study published in the journal Dermato-Endocrinology. Leucine — an amino acid found in meat — can increase skin inflammation and break down collagen and elastin. These types of diets can also increase the risk for cardiovascular disease.
2. Better Tasting Bodily Fluids and Fresher Body Odor
Going on a vegan diet can actually make you physically taste appetizing to your partner — without adding any outside substances on your body. It is commonly believed fruits such as pineapples can give semen a better flavor by counteracting the acidic taste, according to a study done by the website Pork and Gin. Six heterosexual couples agreed to have one partner eat pineapple and the other to rate overall quality and sweetness of their “sex wee” for a week. Although the findings of the study should be proceeded with caution since there was no blinding, no randomization, and no control group, the researchers found eating pineapple can make a significance difference to both the overall taste and sweetness of bodily juices.
In regard to odor, a vegan diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, will keep your body smelling fresh. A 2006 study published in the journal Chemical Senses found body odor when on the nonmeat diet was judged as significantly more attractive, more pleasant, and less intense than meat-eaters. The findings highlight that red meat consumption has a negative impact on perceived body odor. Smelling good can lure your partner closer to you for some one-on-one time behind closed doors.
