If you have found that your sex life has been a little bit lackluster lately, there are many different steps you can take to get things going again. Although there are an array of items that you can try – such as natural lubricants or other kinds of bedroom toys – something that can truly help can be found in your kitchen. Women who want to improve their sex lives should be eating apples on a regular basis, according to a new study that was recently published in the Archives of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The researchers studied just over 700 Italian women, who were broken up into two different groups, those who eat apples at least once or twice a day and those who do not. The women were then asked to fill out a 19 part questionnaire, known as the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI). The questions inquired into the women's sexual function, how often they sleep with their partners, the strength of their orgasms, as well as overall sexual satisfaction with their partners.
"Daily apple use is associated with higher FSFI scores in sexually active female patients, thus increasing their lubrication and overall sexual function," the report says.
Researchers believe that the reason apples have such a positive impact on the sex lives of women is that the fruit contains polyphenols and antioxidants that can stimulate blood flow to certain body parts in women. This is the same reason that red wine and chocolate have also been linked to improved sexual function in different studies. Those leading the study called the results "intriguing" and plan on continuing with a larger sample size.
