Vajikarana Foods are aphrodisiac foods in western language. Westerners consider chocolate and oysters as aphrodisiac foods. According to them –
Chocolate is a very popular aphrodisiac foods as it contains many stimulants including phenethylamine, tryptophan, sugar and theobromine. Tryptophan can block pain and increase pleasure and when you fall in love the brain releases phenethylamine. However the quantities of these compounds found in chocolate is very minute and the aphrodisiac side of chocolate may be sure to its stimulant properties.
Oyesters have been associated with eroticism for a very long time because of their appearance and texture. However it is most likely the high zinc (Zinc (Jasada Bhasma) in Ayurveda- for Erectile Dysfunction , PCOS) levels found in oysters that make them an aphrodisiac food. If you are deficient of zinc then you run the risk of being impotent or having delayed sexual development. However if you are not zinc deficient then it is unknown how oysters can help with your sexual arousal.
Recent researches have shown that watermelon is rich in an important amino acid, known as citrulline. This amino acid dilates and relaxes the blood vessels.
