If a few bites of these fiery peppers get your palms sweaty and your heart pumping, chalk it up to capsaicin—the ingredient that gives chiles their heat. “Hot peppers are a significant vasodilator, enhancing circulation to the small and large blood vessels,” says Chris Kilham, author of Hot Plants: Nature’s Proven Sex Boosters for Men and Women. Result: a circulation surge that primes organs for romance. Find Peppadews in jars in the pickle section of the canned food aisle or at supermarket olive bars.
