Vitamins Can Be SEXY!

 We want to talk about something serious in this blog, something we think is extremely important...SEX! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we don’t want there to be any excuses in the bedroom.  We don’t want to hear that you are too tired, have a headache or that you aren’t in the mood. Regardless of your age or sex, it is time for you to get a little bit frisky. So, if your libido is just so-so it is time to boost your MOJO with micronutrients! 

That’s right! We are going to make vitamins SEXY! While some people look to aphrodisiacs such as oysters or Spanish fly to intensify their sexual desire, we want to assure you that becoming sufficient in your essential vitamins will be all you need to bring some spice into the bedroom. Some vitamins provide building blocks for making the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, and without the proper amounts of these vitamins, it can be difficult to maintain good sexual health. Others help to boost energy, and physical enjoyment. Here are five great vitamins to heat up this Valentine’s Day.


Vitamin D

You probably already know that there is a widespread vitamin D deficiency among Americans, mostly due to the fact that we are spending more time indoors and less time soaking up the sun. In Naked Calories we state that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half of the general population in the United States is vitamin D deficient, regardless of age. About 70 percent of elderly Americans and 90 percent of Americans of color are vitamin D deficient. However, you may not know that a vitamin D deficiency can devastate a women’s sex drive because it can bring on low estrogen levels, as well as bone diseases and cardiovascular difficulties. Low vitamin D can also make you moody and depressed – two attributes rarely associated with romance. And men, low vitamin D levels mean low testosterone and that equals a low libido. So boost both of your vitamin D levels this year and make cupid work overtime!


Vitamin A

Could vitamin A be a natural Viagra? Listen up guys…if you are having any troubles in the bedroom you may want to check your vitamin A levels as vitamin A deficiency can result in lower production of the essential sex hormone testosterone and is the most common deficiency in impotent men. With more than 50% of Americans deficient in Vitamin A, this looks like a good place to start if your looking to put a little steam back in the bedroom. A sign of this deficiency may be some not so sexy dry skin.


Vitamin E

According to the USDA, only 13 percent of  the U.S. is sufficient in vitamin E. That’s too bad, because vitamin E has been called the "sex vitamin" due to its ability to aid in the feelings of desire, attraction and enhanced mood. It doesn't hurt that it is also considered an anti-aging secret as well. What can be better than looking young and feeling like a teenager in love again? Some find vitamin E can also be used topically as a sexual lubricant, and it may increase sensation. Just open a vitamin E liquid capsule, use topically, and boost the enjoyment of this special night.


Vitamin B1 (thiamin)

Do you want to make the passion last all nightlong? Then you will want to make sure you are getting enough vitamin B1 in your diet. B1 is important to maintainenergy and sex drive, as well as for metabolism and high energy. Those with deficient B vitamins may find themselves with low desire and may feel tired or sluggish…a deficiency can also make you feel constipated, which is never very sexy.


Vitamin B3 (niacin)

Vitamin B3 increases blood flow to the extremities, and yes, that also includes the brain! This vitamin is crucial in the process of achieving orgasm during sexual encounters. You can turn on your ability to get off by eliminating a niacin deficiency that could be putting a real damper on your sex life.
