Eating to attract – how food affects pheromones


You are to others what you eat. Eating foods like celery and chili can affect the pheromones your body puts out, which could influence the behavior of others around you.

What you eat can determine your attractiveness to Mr or Ms Right.

Pheromones are a type of hormone that your body secretes, usually through perspiration or body odour. Although most people will not be conscious of their presence, pheromones play a part in not just attracting people, but also how they behave around you. So incorporating some common foods into your diet could play a part in whether that attractive stranger takes notice of you.



This vegetable is said to cause the body to release the male pheromone androstenol through sweat. Androstenol is also often used in body sprays and colognes as an aphrodisiac to attract members of the fairer sex.

Drink up all the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables with the Electrolux EJE3000 juicer.   

For those who dislike the taste of celery, consider juicing it with a sweeter fruit like apples or papayas. The Electrolux EJE3000 juicer makes it an easy process with its extra-large feed chute that allows you to juice large pieces of fruits and vegetables.


If attracting the ladies isn’t enough of an incentive, celery is also a good source of vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, fiber, calcium and vitamin B6, making it a great addition to a healthy diet.



Here’s where the ability of refrigerators like the Electrolux FlexFresh to keep fresh food optimally stored and separated comes in handy. Fresh oysters are chock full of zinc, a mineral that boosts testosterone levels and increases sex drive. You can also consume them to increase pheromone production in your body.



Celery for men, papayas for women. The fruit causes the female body to produce pheromones similar to estrogen, increasing their libido.  To really impress her, break out your Electrolux Powermix Silent blender and create a delicious papaya smoothie for your significant other.



Whether you’re male or female, parsnips can help with boosting your pheromones. This root vegetable helps your body metabolise estrogen, and enhances blood levels of testosterone. Like celery, whether you need that natural boost to your charisma or not, parsnips are still a good, fat-free source of vitamin C, folic acid, and fibre.
