The big most romantic day of the year is THURSDAY.   Valentine's Day.  While it may not be scientifically proven, many people believe that a handful of foods have real aphrodisiac powers.

Here’s a rundown of some foods to consider when making your Valentine’s Day dinner plans:


Oysters – Studies have shown that oysters (as well as clams, mussels and scallops) have two rare amino acids that raise levels of testosterone and progesterone.

Lobster – Shellfish in general are loaded with zinc and other minerals essential for a healthy libido.

Truffles – Truffles have a very distinctive scent that’s thought to be pretty close to human pheromones, which trigger erotic memories.

Honey – Honey has boron, vitamin B and other substances thought to be important to get folks in the right frame of mind.

Chocolate – The no-brainer on the list, chocolate hits you right in the pleasure center of the brain, releasing natural feel-good chemicals. (Forbes)
