It’s not uncommon while you’re browsing the internet to have pop-up ads claiming that ‘eating this weird fruit can help your sex life’.
Nine times out of ten you’ll eye roll at the suggestion and carry on with your day.
However, this article isn’t one of those stupid links and is rooted in actual scientific study.
Researchers have looked into whether eating some nuts can help increase your sexual desire and lead to better orgasms and they’ve been very surprised at the outcome.
The trail results have been published in Nutrients, showing that roughly two handfuls a day ‘significantly improved auto-reported orgasmic function and sexual desire’.
The people in the study were given 60 g of nuts per day (30 g of walnuts, 15 g of almonds, and 15 g of hazelnuts) and told to incorporate them into their daily diet.
Of course there was a group that was just told to do their normal thing as a control.
The study said: “Herein we report that adding 60 g/d of mixed raw nuts to a Western-style diet for 14-wk improved the auto-reported orgasmic function and sexual desire parameters in a group of healthy reproductive-aged participants compared with an age-matched control group.
“Our study extends the findings to a healthy population without erectile dysfunction supplemented with a mixture of nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, and walnuts.
“Nuts are nutrient-dense foods with a special nutrient content, a key component of several healthy dietary patterns and recommendations, and its consumption is associated with improvements in some cardiovascular disease risk factors.

“In addition, nuts had a relatively high amount of the nonessential amino acid arginine, a precursor of NO, that is a potent vasoactive neurovascular, nonadrenergic, noncholinergic (NANC) neurotransmitter that plays an important role in erectile action through the corpora cavernosa.”
The study noted that all the participants were healthy males, so the results might not carry similarly in unhealthy people. It also didn’t specific what it meant by ‘better’ orgasm so we’ll just have to take their word for it.
Now, if you’re deathly allergic to nuts but still want to orgasm better then we do not, under any circumstances, advise you to gobble a load of nuts because you’ll likely die.
But if you aren’t allergic, then add in a handful or two every day and see the results for yourself.
