As you go through Valentines Day with your loved one, you may want to order these foods or at least cook them because they are said to have aphrodisiac properties.

According to Woman's Day, these ingredients will help you and your partner set the mood.

Which would be especially welcome on this day of lovers.

Here are 5 foods to help you set the mood this Valentine's.

1. Figs

These fruits boost the production of nitric oxide which dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow to sex organs. This in turn helps with clitoral and penile stimulation, and vaginal lubrication.

2. Garlic

Garlic stimulates circulation through an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase which promotes blood flow in the nether regions.

3. Spinach

It is rich in magnesium which helps promotes blood flow in the genitalia. Optimal blood flow will lead to stronger erections. Magnesium also aids in maintaining energy levels.

4. Walnuts

These are a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids which boost heart function. They're a natural anti-depressant and will keep you in a good mood.

5. Chili peppers

They contain a compound called capsaicin which can produce effects that mimic sexual arousal such as quickened pulse, better circulation, sweating and a release of endorphin. They can also increase nerve sensitivity which can heighten pleasure during sex.
