Avocado, a sensual added element

The avocado has been considered for long a very sensual fruit. Its pear shape together with its rich and voluptuous flavour has given to this fruit the reputation of being an energising sensual food.
Indeed,  it is apparently in its high levels of vitamin E that scientists have found the source of its popularity : avocados are great to invigorate and increase the energy levels.
If you want to give an extra boost to sensuality during a romantic rendez-vous, avocados can become your best friends.
Some findings found that the aztecs already considered avocado as a powerful aphrodisiac.
