Grab Some (Mixed) Nuts to Have Better Orgasms

Women with higher levels of vitamin D3 have been shown to experience more intense orgasms and enjoy sex more than women who are low in vitamin D3. But what about the guys? Is there anything we can ingest that will give us better orgasms? Well, we see lists all over the internet with a bunch of food that no one has heard of, that if you eat, then in about 2-4 weeks you will see a slight improvement. But not all of us want to incorporate some weird sounding supplements. Some of us want to eat regular food that we can find easily at the store.

The prevalence of erectile and sexual dysfunction affects approximately 2% of men under age 40, around 53% of men aged 40-70 years, and more than 85% of men over age 80.

According to a new study, that food, or rather foods, which can help you experience more intense orgasms are as simple as heading to your local grocer – and picking up some walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds.

A 14-week trial consisting of 83 men analyzed the effects of certain nuts combined with a western diet (poor in fruits and vegetables but rich in animal fats… Sorry, but its kind of true) and its effect on sexual function.  

Group 1 did not change anything about their diets. Group 2 consumed 60 grams of mixed nuts everyday for the 14 weeks.

The men who ate the mixed nuts every day reported improved orgasms, sexual function, and sexual desire. However, researchers are not exactly sure why eating nuts helped with sexual function. Peripheral levels of nitric oxide (NO) and E-selectin (which are the markers of erectile endothelial function) were shown to have no significant differences between the two groups.

60 grams of nuts is approximately one-half cup of nuts, or around 340 calories. If you are watching your caloric intake or just not trying to gain weight, you will have to account for this somehow. The easiest way to keep your calories the same while introducing the half cup of mixed nuts is to take away from your carbs to account for the additional fat macronutrient (sorry, nobody wants to hear they should have less carbs). Calorie wise, fat has 9 calories per gram, while carbs have only 4 calories per gram. This means to level out the additional 31 grams of fat from the mixed nuts, you will have to shave off about 70 grams of carbs from your macro intake. On the plus side, 60 grams of mixed nuts has 5 grams of fiber and over 10 grams of protein. Just be sure you are getting plain or lightly salted nuts, nothing doused in oil or sugar. Keep it simple.
