Flax seed. These tiny seeds are said to boost the libido, especially in women. So if you are an Aries woman or you have your eye on one, keep a supply of flax seed on hand to perk up a lackadaisical mood. They are also a good source of manganese, fiber, magnesium, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories with the perfect amount of omega-3 fatty acids to keep the cerebral cortex functioning properly so Aries and all other signs can walk, talk, and chew gum at the same time. Put flax seeds or flax seed oil on your grocery list today, you’ll love the nutty flavor!
