The secret to a better sex life might just be hiding in your refrigerator.
No, we're not talking about whipped cream or chocolate syrup (although those can be fun too).
What vegetable can help with sexual performance?
Well we're talking about beetroot!
Yes, you heard it right. Beetroot, the root vegetable that adds a pop of colour to your salads and soups, can also add a pop to your bedroom performance. How, you ask? Well, let's dive into the science of it.
Beetroot is rich in nitrates, which are converted into nitric oxide in the body. And what does nitric oxide do, you ask? It acts as a vasodilator, relaxing and widening the blood vessels, leading to improved blood flow. And what does improved blood flow mean for men? Stronger and more sustained erections!
We know what you're thinking, "But wait, I've been eating beetroot my whole life and haven't seen any improvement in my performance." Well, the key is to eat enough of it. A little beetroot here and there won't cut it. You have to go all in, like Popeye with his spinach. Research suggests to get the benefits of things like improved endurance, you need around 150g of beetroot daily which equates to 2 medium beetroot or 1 large glass of beetroot juice, contributing to a portion of your 5 a day too, win win!
So, men, if you're looking to add some excitement to your sex life, ditch the little blue pill and try a big red beet. Instead of reaching for a pill, you can reach for a beetroot juice that is rich in mineral and will also hydrate you.
It's a win-win situation: a healthy drink that can also give you a healthy performance.
But let’s be clear here, while beetroot can have a positive impact on nitric oxide levels and sexual health, it's not a cure for erectile dysfunction. If you're experiencing sexual health problems, it's important to talk to a doctor to determine the underlying cause and get proper treatment.
Furthermore, at Omnos, we believe in taking a holistic approach to health and sexual health.
While beetroot can be incredibly helpful, there's more to consider.
Let's delve deeper and explore the full picture…
What can I do to maintain optimal sexual health?
Sexual health is an important aspect of overall health and well-being, and there are several ways to maintain and improve sexual function. From eating a healthy diet to communicating with your partner, here are 9 tips to help boost your sexual health.
- Maintain a healthy diet: A balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and lean protein can help improve circulation, promote overall health, and reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease and diabetes that can interfere with sexual function.
- Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can improve cardiovascular health, reduce stress, and boost circulation, all of which can contribute to improved sexual health. Find an exercise routine that works for you and stick to it, but of course try not to over do it, too much exercise can overtime impact hormonal health
- Practice stress management techniques: Chronic stress can interfere with sexual desire and performance, so it's important to find ways to manage stress. Mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation are just a few techniques that can help reduce stress levels and improve sexual health.
- Quit smoking: Smoking can negatively impact circulation, which can lead to problems with sexual function. Quitting smoking can help improve circulation and overall health, and in turn, sexual health.
- Limit alcohol consumption: While moderate alcohol consumption has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, excessive alcohol consumption can interfere with sexual function and reduce sexual desire. It's important to limit alcohol consumption and drink in moderation.
- Get enough sleep: Sleep is important for overall health and well-being, and it can also impact sexual health. Chronic sleep deprivation can reduce sexual desire and interfere with sexual performance, so make sure to get plenty of restful sleep each night.
- Communicate with your partner: Communication is key in any relationship, and sexual relationships are no exception. Talking openly and honestly with your partner about your needs, desires, and concerns can help improve your sexual experience and build intimacy.
- Experiment and have fun: Experimenting with different positions, techniques, and even sexual aids can help add excitement to your sex life and keep things fresh. Remember, sex is supposed to be fun and enjoyable.
- Don't compare yourself to others: Every person is unique, and comparing yourself to others can lead to feelings of inadequacy and negatively impact your sexual health. Focus on what works for you and what makes you feel confident and comfortable in the bedroom.
In conclusion, sexual health is an important aspect of overall health and well-being, and there are many steps that individuals can take to improve it. Adding beetroot to your diet can be a helpful addition, but it's important to consider all aspects of sexual health and take a holistic approach and always prioritise your own comfort and well-being in the bedroom.
Having a healthy and fulfilling intimate relationship with your partner is a crucial aspect of a strong and loving partnership and overall health. Making time for intimacy is essential for maintaining a strong bond and creating a sense of closeness and intimacy with your partner. Respecting each other's needs and schedules is important in order to make sure that you both feel comfortable and able to fully engage in intimate moments.
Intimacy is a fundamental component of a healthy relationship and should be given the importance it deserves. When both partners make the effort to prioritise and value intimacy, it will create a deeper connection and strengthen the bond, leading to a more fulfilling and satisfying relationship.
What’s a Rich Text element?

Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
