Chocolate is known to boost your mood and make you feel relaxed. This is down to a nutrient called phenethylamine which triggers feelgood hormones. Good-quality dark chocolate also contains antioxidants, which protect the body from harm. Dark chocolate still has sugar in it however, so enjoy it in moderation.
Berries are also rich in antioxidants and zinc, "which helps to optimise blood flow to the sex organs," says nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville, author of Natural Alternatives to Sugar.
