Btw. Beet juice works really well for me.
I imagine it would if you don't have advanced ED. That is great, isn't it! Super easy and healthy fix!
One of the first known uses of beets was by the ancient Romans, who used them medicinally as an aphrodisiac. Many plants have been considered an aphrodisiac by some culture at some time, but in this case it may be more than just wishful thinking.
As noted above, beets can increase blood flow due to their nitrates. Increased blood flow to the genital areas is one of the mechanisms Viagra and other pharmaceuticals create their effects. Beets also contain high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.
I wish we'd known about the health benefits of beets years ago. I like them but we sort of ignored them until the past couple years. Now they are pretty much a daily thing, raw in a veggie-fruit-protein smoothie.
