    DescriptionBatizados com o nome de Afrodite, a deusa grega do amor, afrodisíacos são alimentos que muitos acreditam aumentar a libido, a potência e o prazer sexual. Quem não ouviu falar que chocolates, morangos e ostras podem ter um efeito tão poderoso? Historicamente, os afrodisíacos incluíram até mesmo alimentos bem peculiares - incluindo uma mosca tóxica espanhola, chifres de rinoceronte moídos e extratos de plantas raras.
