Sex coffee is a thing. I'm not even kidding. Studies have shown that even on its own, drinking 2 cups of coffee a day can improve your sex life. Combine that with a few ancient superfoods, and you've got some truly sexy health benefits. Whether or not they actually make your bedroom activities more exciting... that's for you to find out. And report back, obviously. ;)
What makes this coffee so sexy?
Each ingredient has unique libido-boosting, stimulating properties that have been relied on since ancient times. Check it out:
MACA: an Aztec root, usually ground into a powder. An adaptogen, it supports your body in creating the enzymes it needs to balance hormones and enhance fertility. It's often touted as an aphrodisiac, which can increase libido.
CACAO: Raw cacao is a stimulant. It gets your blood pumping and triggers your body to release seratonin, which enhances mood. The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study that found women who ate chocolate daily scored slightly higher on the Female Sexual Index, aka the chart that measures female sexual function.
CINNAMON: Cinnamon promotes vital energy, keeping your body from that desire-sucking lag that can come after a busy day.
COCONUT MILK: Many cultures have used coconut milk to naturally balance hormones and to increase sex drive. Full of healthy fats, coconut milk will give you energy for sex, without a nasty after-crash.
Are you ready to take the plunge and try it out yourself? Grab a partner, because here's the recipe that might change your life forever.
