Already in ancient Greece and Egypt, it was known that some substances of animal, vegetable and mineral origin stimulate a sexual desire. In honor of the goddess of love, Aphrodite, they were called aphrodisiacs. Now the properties of aphrodisiacs are thoroughly studied and are successfully used in cooking and perfumery.
Myths about aphrodisiacs
There are many myths and misbeliefs about aphrodisiacs. For example, Casanova, famous for his love affairs, knew aphrodisiac properties, stimulating sexual activity, very well. According to legend, he ate about 50 oysters per day, as well as refreshed himself with raw eggs and caviar.
In the Middle Ages, a blister beetle, known for its ability to arouse sexual desire from the time of ancient Rome, obtained a wide circulation. Tincture, made of a substance released by the beetles (a blister beetle), stimulated passion and made positive influence on sexual potency. Medicines made from blister beetles can be bought even today, but abuse of them is dangerous for health.
Aphrodisiacs for men
As the famous saying goes, “the way to a man's heart is through his stomach”. And it means not only to give the man some delicious food to eat, but also which exactly ingredients to choose. Aphrodisiacs for men contain a lot of protein, vitamin B complex and zinc. Avocados, oysters, eggs, nuts, caviar are rich with these substances.
