Flagging libidos could receive help from the tuna fish sandwich, according to the newly published book Temptations: Igniting the Pleasure and Power of Aphrodisiacs (Simon & Schuster, 2002).

The unlikely aphrodisiac is highlighted from amongst a list of practical dietary tips for a better love life.

Dietician Ellen Albertson, co-author of the book, explained that it#;s all to do with protein and omega-3 fatty acids, both plentiful in canned tuna. Scientists have long reported that both may help prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and ease arthritic pain.

Recently however, omega-3 fatty acids have also been attributed with alleviating depression, the largest passion-killer. Albertson concludes, therefore, that eating more canned tuna uplifts moods and libidos.

Randi Thomas, national director for the US Tuna Foundation, welcomed the news: “We usually tout the long list of health benefits scientists believe are provided by omega-3s fatty acids.

“But canned tuna improving consumers’ love lives? Now that’s what we call a sexy idea!”
