 Ginseng and Saffron can Act as Aphrodisiacs

Man's quest for an aphrodisiac that can be commonly used in the diet can be at an end after a new study published in the journal Food Research International suggests that items such as ginseng and saffron can increase sexual desire.

Researchers from University of Guelph, Ontario, analyzed hundreds of food items and found that apart from ginseng and saffron, other items such as cloves, garlic and yohimbine, a substance that grows naturally in West African trees, also increase sexual desire.

The researchers also found some surprising facts. While chocolate is often considered to be a potent aphrodisiac, its consumption did not alter the level of sexual desire while drinking alcohol in fact interfered in sexual performance.

"Aphrodisiacs have been used for thousands of years all around the world, but the science behind the claims has never been well understood or clearly reported", lead researcher Massimo Marcone said.
