So ladies, need I mention your role in all this? You are probably in a better position to detect and draw attention to any changes as far as your man’s penis and erections are concerned.
There is a powerful and unmistakable link between failing erections and common medical ailments, including obesity, high cholesterol levels, hypertension, depression, sleep disorders, diabetes, and heart disease. When atherosclerosis develops, it starts to clog up the tiny vessels in the penis. The impact is often seen there first, long before it ever shows up in the coronary arteries of the heart, or in any of the other 100,000 miles of blood vessels that run throughout the body.
So now that you know, what can you do to ensure your penis is in great shape?
Nutrition is important. The quantity and quality of the food you eat can impact greatly on the health of your penis-your overall health.
It is also important to cut down on fats. That is important because the amount of fat in your gut affects the amount of testosterone available to you-the more fat, the less testosterone.
It is important to incorporate lots of fruits and vegetables into your daily diet patterns.
They help lower your cholesterol level, an improvement that combats cardiovascular disease and increases blood flow to the penis. Leafy green vegetables are excellent sources of folic acid, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Citrus fruits offer plenty of vitamin C.
Chile peppers, ginger, and other spicy foods can enhance sexual performance by increasing circulation.
Drink black or green tea. Both are high in antioxidants. As a morning beverage or with a meal, a cup of tea has too many disease-fighting benefits to be ignored, among them protecting against cancer and maintaining heart function and strong bones.
The next important thing is to have lots of exercise. Get your heart pumping. Hit the road; run, swim, ride a bike or any form of aerobics. Stretch often as well and build strength.
