An aphrodisiac is a substance that helps increase libido and sexual energy. There are many different foods that have been classified as aphrodisiacs. Certain aphrodisiac, superfoods, and herbs help strengthen overall vitality and longevity. They also nourish and help bring balance to our endocrine system (hormones), boost our mood, and increase overall life energy.
Lobster’s history as an aphrodisiac can be traced back to Greek mythology. Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was born of the sea and it was believed that sea animals were creatures of love. Greek mythology aside, there are many scientific reasons that help prove how lobster contributes to increased sensual pleasure.
Lobster is a great source of protein, but it is also low-fat, which is ideal if you are planning a night of passion. Protein is also helpful in boosting dopamine and norepinephrine which are chemicals the brain produces to elevate sensitivity Lobster contains vitamin B-12 which increases energy, promotes fertility, and regulates sex hormones. Lobster meat also contains a hormone called epinephrine. Epinephrine is also known as adrenaline which is a natural stimulant. Adrenaline is carried in the bloodstream and affects the autonomous nervous system, which controls functions such as the heart rate, dilation of the pupils, and secretion of sweat and saliva. Lobster meat also contains magnesium, which produces androgens. Androgens are a group of hormones that aid in increasing estrogen and testosterone.
