Eggs

Eggs are packed full of protein, the building block of bones, blood and muscle. 

"They can give your energy a boost, which could help in the bedroom!" says Michela Vagnini, nutritionist at Natures Plus. Eggs are also great sources of zinc - a mineral that contributes to the proper functioning of your immune system.

Avocados

Avocados contain more potassium (a mineral which helps your body maintain a normal water balance) than bananas. They also contain 26% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin K (bone health and blood clotting) and 20% of your folates (important for red blood cells and your energy levels).

"Avocados are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which may naturally boost your mood," says Vagnini.
