Feeling sexy is a lot about your attitude, but if your body is strong and healthy, it’s easier to feel energetic and act on those horny feelings. It’s vital to stay active, not only so you look your best, but so that there is good blood flow to all the relevant body parts.

Eating an overall healthy diet is important, and if you are looking for specific nutrients that might assist, make sure your multivitamin contains these:

  • Magnesium: If you’re anxious and stressed, you won’t feel at your sexiest. Magnesium helps with every function in the body including normal hormone function, and when you’re deficient in it you will feel even more stressed out.
  • Zinc: Too little of it can influence a lack of normal sexual function.
  • Vitamin A, E and B12: These are needed for healthy sperm that has good motility (moves well) and are also thought to improve the sex drive by regulating the hormones.
