Valentine's day and Aphrodisiac foods

Aphrodisiac is named after Aphrodite; the Greek goddess of love. Food containing aphrodisiac substance or quality are the ones that excites sexual desire. But before you run to the store and stock up on all or some of the following foods; remember that your mind is the most powerful aphrodisiac of them all.

PEA releases dopamine in the pleasure center of the brain and helps induce feelings of excitement, attraction and euphoria. The sexual lure of more expensive chocolate truffles lies in the musky aroma and smooth mouth feel. While it is not proven that chocolate is a true aphrodisiac, many would suggest being happier and in a better mood leads to a better romance.

The most common pains of hangover are headaches, stomach irritations, dehydration, and fatigue. Although there are not any perfect solution for a hangover, here are some natural remedies to help you ease off your hangover.
The remedy that helps should contain fat, protein, fructose and vodka. Therefore a 1/4 glass of
combinations of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, raw egg and vodka might help you. But if you cannot eat or drink this concoction try one or all of these remedies.
