Pomegranate Salsa with Chips at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.comTraditionally, oysters and chocolate are thought to boost the libido. However, Fresh Home magazine believes that pomegranates, jalapeno, garlic, honey, basil and avocado should do the trick.

According to NaturalNews.com:

Avocado - helps to increase libido. It contains high levels of folic acid, which gives the body energy. Avocado is also high in vitamin B6, a hormone regulator.

Basil - increases circulation, stimulates sex drive, boosts fertility, and gives you a sense of wellbeing.

Hot peppers and chilies – are high in capsaicin, which gives them their heat. Capsaicin releases endorphins and other feel good hormones.

Garlic - contains high levels of allicin, which can improve blood flow to all your sexy bits.

All in all, this is a pretty sexy and healthy salsa!
