Spices with Perking Power

Is it true that common--store bought--spices double as aphrodisiacs?

People throughout history swear by the power of aphrodisiacs for boosting the sex drive or to cure sexual problems. In recent years studies have added credibility to these claims.

By using the spices listed below, you'll never have to worry about the latest sexual interest or dysfunction. Just a dash in your favorite food is all you need to do the trick.

Problem----------------Spice to Use
Low sexual desire-------Cloves, pepper, vanilla, salt, ginger
Impotence--------------Cardamon or garlic
Premature ejaculation---Cardamon
Weak climax------------Garlic
Low sexual sensitivity----Saffron

In case you are wondering how long you have to wait before it takes effect, it's quick. As a matter of fact, remember what your mom used to tell you about eating and swimming--'Wait 20 minutes before you go in the water.' That rule applies here a different context.
