    I agree on chocolate and pomegranates, they do give the heights. Another efficient food is the lamb meat. They get men excited rather quickly haha~

    Thanx for giving us such an advice. Actual it is very important to take care of our hormones, we should know that we need to boost our homenes. We thank for this advice becasue we use to eat food that does not do anything in our body. We thank the website for that it teaches us on such things. So every one should take it into concideration, the importance of eating fruits. Alot of people are very lazy in eating fruits and vegetables.

    Thank you
