Something that may actually improve your mood and/or sexual whatever is coffee. And the good news is, all that bad stuff your mother used to tell you would happen if you drank too much? Well, some of it's not true. Heavy coffee drinkers don't experience a significant increase in blood pressure, even relative to non-drinkers. Of course, research on the health effects of coffee are notoriously confounded by everything from age to profession, etc.
Finally, once you're sick, you might someday get little robots put inside you to find out what's wrong. Everyone's mentioned the film "Fantastic Voyage," and I will too, because that's what this is: Canadian researchers have successfully injected and navigated nanobots through an artery to have a look inside. Very cool!
