Sexy Strawberries Improve Love Life
<snip>

IF your libido could do with a lift, try eating strawberries rather than oysters, says a leading nutritionist.

Patrick Holford founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in the UK says both strawberries and rasperries have high levels of zinc in their seeds.

Because you eat the whole fruit, rather than removing the seeds, this in turn boosts your own zinc levels.

Zinc is seen as nature's aphrodisiac for a number of reasons. It helps the production of testosterone and sperm in men, and high zinc levels reportedly make women more receptive to sex.

According to Holford, if a man has sex three times in 24-hours, he can use up his body's entire zinc supply!

3. Apparently strawberries improve flavour too.
If I could have a few volunteers I'll spend a week eating nothing but strawberries & they can tell me if it tastes better than a week when I don't.
:evilgrin:

Anyone? Come on it's for the good of mankind! You know you want to.
:evilfrown:

Oh well
