Verdict: Sort of fact — but not if you’re the only one eating Caesar salad.
Garlic contains allicin, which can help with the blood circulation necessary for an erection. Because of this, its long been used as a natural remedy for impotence. Garlic’s physical-endurance-boosting aspects won’t necessarily trump bad breath with your loved one, however, so dine with caution.
Other cooking flavors have benefits too:
Saffron relieves pain and tension; its picocrocin content can also boost skin’s sensitivity to touch. It may be an expensive spice, but it’s worth it.
Chilies’ capsaicin also stimulates nerve endings and speeds up your heart rate.
