Just as there are aphrodisiac delicacies, there are a surprising number of foods that kill your libido.

If you've noticed lately that your sex drive isn't quite at the level you'd like, your diet may be the culprit.

Some of the foods that kill your libido are obvious but others are pretty shocking.

Some are so mundane, in fact, that you might eat them every day without realizing they're poisoning your sex drive.

What are these sly, libido-murdering foods?

Read on to find out …

1. Too Much Sugar

Too Much Sugar

It's no surprise that there are many sugar-laden foods that kill your libido.2

Sugary foods, especially if they're processed, are filled with trans fats, which will wreck your immune system as well as your libido.

Saturated fats clog up your arteries, which reduces the flow of oxygen to your organs – including your sex organs.

Sugar can even affect your fertility because its trans fats have a negative impact on your spleen by reducing its ability to produce the white blood cells necessary to make sperm and eggs multiply.

2. Oysters

Oysters

Oysters?

Poisoning your sex drive?

Oh yeah.

Here's the thing: oysters are considered an aphrodisiac because they're very high in zinc, which is a libido booster.

However, although people have been slurping down raw oysters practically forever, thinking they're a sexual superfood, they're actually toxic.

While you can get oysters from comparably healthy places, realize that they're absorbing all the parasites and toxic substances in the ocean – and they go straight into your body, which kind of cancels out the enhancing properties of zinc.

3. Licorice

Licorice

Weird, right?

Licorice as a plant is thought to be incredibly medicinal, and it is in some areas – but your sexual health isn't one of them.

That's because there are phytoestrogens in the plant, which have an impact on your endocrine system.

Basically, if you eat too much licorice, it can lower the amount of testosterone your body produces, and testosterone is vital to the sexual health of both men and women.
