A Recipe for Sex – It’s Set in Stone
When is a fruit a drupe and what does a drupe have to do with a stone? A drupe is a fruit in which the outer fleshy part surrounds a hard seed or stone. The definitive characteristic of a drupe is that the stone is derived from the ovary wall of the flower. The apricot, peach, plum and nectarine are examples of stone fruit that are drupes.
Stone fruits are rich in antioxidants and nutrients that support sexual health. The rich color of these fruits reflects succulent nutrition at its best. Spanish researchers discovered that peaches and nectarines contain 5 times more antioxidants than previously thought. One medium nectarine provides 40 percent of your daily vitamin C and 14 percent of niacin. Important nutrients for sexual health
Like nectarines, peaches are packed with fiber, vitamin, minerals and carotenoids. These phytonutrients have been shown to help fight against cancer. A rich source of antioxidants, peaches supports a strong immune system; needed for sexual performance.
Apricot, another stone fruit, like peaches and nectarines, is rich in both iron and copper. The copper makes the iron available for consumption. Iron helps to build strong rich blood and provide strength and energy; needed for sexual strength.
Now all stone fruit are stone fruit because they have a large center seed that resembles a stone. The stone in many of these fruits has been used to symbolize the female genitaia, making these stone fruits a sexy food. Further stone fruits are a good source of niacin.
Niacin or Vitamin B-3 is responsible for the flush we feel when we get sexually aroused. Niacin helps the skin to stay healthy and improves circulation. Combine niacin with a good source of iron and a visual sexual symbol and it’s easy to see why stone fruit supports sexual health.
Can you think of anything sexier than a peachy complexion and a slight flush of sexual arousal? So if you want to make sure your sex life doesn’t take a droop, it’s written in stone, serve up a fresh sweet drupe and let the fun begin!
