Is Your Heart Healthy Enough for Sexual Activity?

If not, you might consider eating half of this fabulous, fatty, fiber-rich fruit every day.

How does it love your heart? Let me count the ways:

  1. Loaded with heart healthy fat.
  2. Decreases total cholesterol, bad cholesterol, and fat levels in the blood
  3. Increases good cholesterol levels
  4. Rich in folate, a B vitamin important for heart health
  5. Contains numerous plant chemicals which help protect the heart


If your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity, eat it too. It’s considered an aphrodisiac and a traditional remedy for ED.

What is this fruit? Big hint: black, bumpy skin covers a luscious green interior.
