An Apple a Day to Boost Sex Drive in Women

Till now we knew that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. However, in a recent research study scientists have found that if women eat an apple every day then it can help to improve sexual pleasure in women. The main reason behind this seems to be the compound called phloridzin present in apples, which is like estradiol, the female sex hormone that is responsible for sexual arousal in women.
