How can pork tenderloin, quinoa and asparagus improve my sex life?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)

High quality protein increases testosterone. Go for lean cuts of pork, which are also high in zinc. Excess body fat reduces testosterone production, making it unavailable to your sex drive. Quinoa is one of the rare whole grains that is also a complete protein. Asparagus contains niacin, which is necessary for histamine production; histamine is necessary to orgasm as it allows blood vessels to dilate and makes the skin very sensitive to touch, resulting in a more pleasurable experience.
