Let's face it, there's nothing exciting about a dead sex life. Sure, sex isn't going to knock your socks off every time, but if you don't have a happy and fulfilling sexual connection, your relationship will suffer.

There are several things we should do to maintain a healthy sex life, including being fit and eating well in general. Speaking of food, there are certain foods that have been shown to improve various aspects of sex, and one of them is apples.

Apples have some interesting properties that can specifically boost your sex life, so it's not just about how they can keep your body healthy. Here are five unique ways that apples can improve your sex life:

They can enhance stimulation

Sometimes the desire for sex doesn't come automatically. You can make use of all the natural remedies that can give you a little nudge, even apples, which you can easily find in almost any store.

Apples have a phytoestrogen called Phloridzin which helps to stimulate blood flow into the sexual organs. This has been particularly helpful for women so with more apples, there could be fewer ''I have a headache so there's no sex tonight'' days.

They can increase lubrication

Better lubrication is also something that improves the quality of sex you have. In fact, dryness can decrease your desire to have sex and even make it a painful experience.
