While weak erections affect nearly half of all men over 40, there are many younger men suffering from impotence which is an impediment to their relationship and overall wellbeing. 

I’m a firm believer in controlling the elements which can be controlled to improve sexual function and this includes the foods you eat. Adding these best superfoods into your daily routine can harden your erection and also boost your sexual performance.

How to choose the best foods for harder erections

Part of your strategy to attain consistently hard erections requires eating foods which increase blood flow and improve circulation, foods which positively influence your state of mind and your ability to think clearly – and foods which nourish your body and enhance mechanical function.

Choose foods which only have one ingredient and avoid processed foods which contain preservatives!

Remember that it’s not your taste buds which need feeding, every cell in your body requires nutrients to increase your libido and ensure you have optimal health and energy for sex. 

When contemplating your wants and needs with regards to food, remember that there is a short term, medium term and long term consequence of everything you put in your mouth.

Packaged foods and fast foods containing preservatives and flavor enhancers may taste good in the short term, but in the medium term they’re going to affect your erection hardness and long term can lead to serious erectile dysfunction issues.

Here’s a menu example to make it easier to naturally harden up your erection:

Preparation is key, if you don’t have meals and snacks planned, it is likely you will reach for anything to appease your hunger.

breakfast for hard erections

Best breakfast foods for harder erections

It’s important to kick start your day with a good breakfast. Choose foods which keep your mood and blood sugar levels stable to help you feel balanced and energized throughout the morning.

Fibre will improve your digestive health and you also require a balance of good protein and healthy fats to manufacture testosterone and improve sexual function. The best sources of breakfast requirements can include: berries, oats, eggs, coconut oil, avocado, coconut milk and butter.

Blend a handful of berries with filtered water, one tablespoon of coconut oil, half a banana, a few kale leaves and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a delicious and healthy smoothie to accompany breakfast. Add about a heaped teaspoon of avocado to make it a thicker consistency.


Does drinking coffee affect erection hardness?

Although high in antioxidants, coffee robs the body of magnesium which is an essential ingredient for keeping strong, hard erections. Magnesium is required for over 300 processes in your body including muscle contraction so limit your coffee intake to one per day.

Cacao (raw cocoa) is one of the best superfoods for sex. A rich source of magnesium, Cacao also contains large amounts of amino acids and other essential nutrients to enhance sexual function. Combined with coconut cream or coconut milk and a pinch of nutmeg, ground cacao powder is an excellent alternative to coffee and can be drunk throughout the day to improve your overall health and erection hardness.

Lunch provides your afternoon energy, so to avoid a mid afternoon slump focus on protein combined with healthy fats to balance your blood sugar. Make sure you include a good serving of vegetables. 

Foods high in lycopene (tomatoes, watermelon) help to protect the prostrate to improve mechanical function. Avocado is a nutrient dense source of healthy fats which is also high in Vitamin E helping to improve blood flow and sexual function.

Protein sources such as salmon or sardines are rich in tryptophan and Omega essential fatty acids which boost your mood and overall sense of well being to set you up for intimate late afternoon activities.

Best evening meals for harder erections

Follow through on your new way of eating and don’t skimp at dinner. The foods you eat at dinner time may determine your ability to get a hard erection and keep a hard erection. Avoid high carbohydrate meals before sex such as pasta, rice, bread or potatoes – or indulging in foods high in sugar as they often cause a rapid drop in energy and lead to your brain being lazy or unfocused.

Free range, organic chicken will deliver the amino acid L-arginine to help relax the muscles surrounding your blood vessels which will naturally increase blood flow into your penis.

Combine this with a selection of fresh green vegetables such as broccoli, green and red peppers, kale, spinach and watercress to boost your Vitamin C and magnesium levels and enhance circulation. 

Best snack foods for harder erections

When you’re hungry or need a boost in energy go for a healthy fat option such as eggs, avocado, nut butter or coconut oil. Sliced banana or apple with almond butter is another great option.

Nuts, mushrooms and nutritional yeast also provide high amounts of B vitamins which can improve your energy levels and ability to focus your attention. Nutritional yeast sprinkled on avocado is a great way to consume large amounts of B vitamins and healthy fats to power up your erections.

Final thoughts

If you want to achieve consistently hard erections (so you can satisfy yourself AND your partner in bed) you need to make wise choices about the foods you are eating. Foods which impede blood flow and block circulation need to be avoided at all costs.

Hard erections aren't just about food and exercise. What's most important is to feed your brain with the correct sexual focus (thoughts and actions). Regardless of your age, this is the most natural and effective way to get hard then stay hard and in control of when you ejaculate.

  • During intercourse my husband’s erection goes weak and due to that he can’t last for long which is very disappointing. I want to harden up his erection so I have suggested him the foods you have mentioned.

    • Hi Alice, it’s important to note that food is not responsible for your husband’s weak erection issue. He is losing his erection because his mind is distracted and he doesn’t know how to focus his actions correctly. This issue can fully be resolved in my Sex Mastery: Hard and in Control pre-recorded program for men. Access it here.

  • Hi Jacqui, I am a coffee addict so I have a question to ask – Will it affect my sexual performance even if I reduce the amount of coffee I drink?

    • Hi Mathew, coffee is a double-edged sword. It is high in antioxidants, but robs your body of magnesium which can affect erection hardness. It’s also a stimulant which can spike your energy levels, but again results in the downward cycle which can make you feel lethargic. I recommend reducing coffee intake to no more than one cup a day. I also recommend magnesium oil (don’t use it on your penis!)
