I got into a discussion in another online forum where we were discussing some available aphrodisiacs. One guy talked of dates (pictured). Since I did not know much about dates I did some research on them. What I know is that all food types and spices/herbs that are considered as aphrodisiacs are normally packed with numerous nutrients that super-charge the body such that as much as they have a sexual benefit, they also have a plethora of other health benefits too.
That is how I managed to get the GREAT importance of DATES in our health. Read on and I am sure when you are done with this article, you will be hunting for the dates.
