Researchers analyzed 731 "active" Italian women aged 18 to 43 with no history or complaint of any issues in the bedroom. Women taking prescription drugs or suffering from depression were excluded from the study as well.
Participants were separated into two groups: regular apple consumption (one to two apples a day) and no apple consumption (0 to 0.5 apples per day). The women then filled out the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), which went into some detail about their daily "activity"...yes keeping this as G-rated as possible :)
Researchers found that "daily apple use is associated with higher FSFI scores...."
So why apples?
The researchers hypothesize that apples may improve sexual function because they contain polyphenols and antioxidants that can stimulate blood flow and get you in the mood...
Guess an apple a day will do more than keep the doctor away :)
