The term aphrodisiac derives from the name Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, fruitfulness, and beauty. An aphrodisiac is a substance that puts you in the mood for love, whether it be food, herbs, good conversation, moonlight on the beach, or even lingerie.

Some aphrodisiacs have a direct stimulating effect on the erogenous zones. Some affect the mind, causing relaxation, releasing inhibitions, or inspiring passion. Others endow the user with stamina, allowing longer lovemaking sessions. Still others are simply reminiscent of sex in their shape, texture, or smell. Consider the phallic nature of a banana or the sweet succulence of a ripe persimmon.

Taken as a tonic, aphrodisiacs can be enjoyed thirty to sixty minutes before a lovemaking session. However, they are best put to use as an integral element of daily life, inspiring health, passion, and sensuality throughout the day and offering the utmost of their tonifying properties

Superfoods are unprocessed foods that pack a wide range of nutrients into a delicious healthful package. They provide powerful healing benefits to the human body. A superfood can be considered an aphrodisiac tonic if it satisfies one or more of the following requirements.

1. It is highly nutritious and makes a significant contribution to overall health, thereby improving libido.
