For sex fuel, think zinc

There's one mineral that can boost the sex lives of men and women alike: zinc.

For men, zinc can supercharge erections and have you ready to "do it" anytime you want. And for women, zinc can make sure your pleasure doesn't turn into pain since it's essential for the production of natural vaginal lubrication.

The best source of zinc by far is that time-tested aphrodisiac, oysters. But there's just one problem.

"Oysters are rather pricey and many are now farm-raised rather than wild caught," writes Douglass Report reader Carla G.

You bet they're pricey -- and worth every penny if you ask me. But I know it's not realistic to have a steady oyster habit in this day and age, and going broke because you've spent all your dough on oysters isn't exactly a recipe for marital bliss.

You can also get zinc from meats such as beef and pork and shellfish such as lobsters and Alaska king crab as well as dairy. You'll even find a little in beer, which means that famous social lubricant can actually be a literal bedroom lubricant a well.

And of course you can also get zinc from supplements.

But it's not just a matter of getting zinc from diet or supplements. You also need to watch for the foods that'll suck the zinc right out of you. Phytic acid is essentially a chelating agent for zinc, and you'll find it in grain such as rice as well as seeds and some nuts.

In addition, zinc is best absorbed with protein, so if you're not eating enough delicious meat -- and you're eating grains besides -- then neither oysters nor zinc tablets will do you much good.

Once you rid yourself of these zinc-busters, you can focus on getting the amount you need for good lovin'. The RDAs -- 11 mg a day for men and 8 mg a day for women -- are far too low. I recommend between 25mg and 50mg a day.

Don't go overboard as too much zinc can be harmful.

A naturopathic physician such as a member of the American Academy for the Advancement of Medicine can measure your levels and tell you precisely how much you need and the best ways to get it.
