Just when you think you couldn’t love beer any more, science says it upgrades your game between the sheets. As if you needed any more reasons to crack open a cold one.
According to Dr. Kat Van Kirk, drinking a couple of brews before hitting the sack could be key to achieving your best sex life. Research at Italy’s Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura found that beer could be good for heart health, which in turn means better cardio endurance and increased stamina.
The phytoestrogens found in beer can make you last longer so you don’t pop before the party gets started. Dark brews in particular can help get you in the mood, as they increase red blood cells and circulation to all the important bits.
And if that’s not enough for you, there’s even a beer specifically engineered to boost bedroom performance. Dubbed “50 Shades of Green,” the brew uses ingredients like ginseng, ginkgo biloba and damiana to increase sexual desire, blood flow and nerve stimulation. We’ll drink to that.
