Walnuts can improve your health - and your sex life.

This simple snack may protect your heart – and boost your libido

It never hurts to find new ways to promote sexual intimacy, no matter how long you've been with your partner or how active you already are in the bedroom. Trying a natural massage oil is an easy way to introduce something a little different, but there are plenty of other means to up the ante as well.

On this blog, we've talked a lot about the sensual powers of aphrodisiacs including chocolate, hot peppers and more. Today, we'll focus on a quick and easy snack that has recently garnered a lot of attention for its heart-healthy properties. After all, the blood coursing through your veins is a crucial part of sexual arousal – and the stronger your heart, the better your stamina. This week, researchers from the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center in Connecticut revealed that snacking on walnuts on a daily basis showed substantial benefits for adults who carried a bit of extra weight. A press release states that eating 56 grams of walnuts a day for eight weeks was linked to reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes because the cells that line the blood vessels were strengthened.

This discovery in and of itself is reason enough to add this snack to your diet. In addition, nutritionist Dr. Meryl Rosofsky told Women's Day magazine that doing so can also ramp things up in the bedroom. "They're a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and good heart function promotes great sex and functioning loins," she explained.

AskMen has also acknowledged a connection between walnuts and sexual prowess, noting that these nuts were associated with fertility as far back as Ancient Rome. 

So, what are you waiting for? Toss a few walnuts into your next salad, or whip up some decadent cocoa-laden brownies with an enticing and even arousing crunch!
