SPICE IT UP

Chat It's Fate - - Aphrodisiacs -

Lots of spices are said to be nat­u­ral aphro­disi­acs – but stud­ies sug­gest that saf­fron, which is made from yel­low cro­cus sta­mens, gen­uinely im­proves sex­ual func­tion. The study by a team at the Univer­sity of Guelph in On­tario, Canada, found that gin­seng also has a sim­i­lar ef­fect. A fur­ther study in­di­cated that women who were given 30mg of saf­fron a day for four weeks ex­pe­ri­enced higher lev­els of arousal and in­creased lu­bri­ca­tion. Cleopa­tra, who knew a thing or two about se­duc­tion, used to take saf­fron-in­fused baths. To­day, saf­fron is used in al­ter­na­tive medicine to im­prove mood. It’s com­monly used in Span­ish cui­sine – so why not treat your amour to a spicy paella this Valen­tine’s day? Olé!
