Unfortunately for men, all the health problems are negatively affecting in one way or another to the penis, says dr. Steven Lamm, professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of New York and author of ‘The Hardness Factor: How to Achieve Your Best Health and Sexual Fitness at Any Age’.
“A man of 50 years of age who is healthy will probably be able to function sexually the same way that one of 30 who smokes and drinks regularly,” confided Dr. Lamm.
Leaving aside the fact that take care of the circulation is an essential part if you want to enjoy a vigorous erections, you should also take into account other physical and mental factors that play a vital role in the functionality of the penis.
Luckily, there are a multitude of ways to ensure that your member is in good condition and you can enjoy sex until well into the 80’s. Isn’t that reason enough to give it a try?
Follow these tips to keep your member perfectly greased up to 80 years:
1 – Lose the belly
Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly to achieve ideal body weight and eliminate the fat around your gut is essential. Abdominal fat blocks the testosterone that later we will need to enjoy a sexual performance satisfactory.
The penis is a kind of barometer that helps us to check the status of our circulatory system in the same way that you would a canary in a coal mine.
This is because the penile arteries are much more narrow than any coronary artery, this way, when plaque builds up, or harden the arteries, is likely to be a problem that affects first the penis, and consequently, the quality of the erections.
2 – Stop smoking
“Smoking narrows the blood vessels and prevents them from being reactive,” said Dr. Lamm.
Nicotine restricts penile blood flow and weakens erections. On the other hand, it also contributes to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, which makes smokers are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction. Add one more entry to the list of “Reasons why I quit smoking.”
3 – Walk all the days
If you practice exercise, blood flow increases causing the blood to run through the endothelial cells (the lining of the blood vessels) and stimulates the production of nitric oxide, a chemical key in the production of erections.
“The more healthy you are a man, the more nitric oxide produced and the more vigorous are their erections,” said Dr. Lamm.
In addition, countless studies have shown that the sport can be as effective as medication in reducing symptoms of depression, another disadvantage that affects negatively on the performance of the penis.
4 – Check the state of your testicles
Testicular cancer affects nearly 8,000 men a year, mostly young people between the ages of 15 and 40. When detected early, testicular cancer can be overcome in more than 95% of the time. Unfortunately, if not detected early, it can spread to other parts of the body reducing the percentage of success dramatically.
If you want to autoexplorarte:
Step 1: Take a hot bath or shower. The warm water relaxes the muscles that pull the testicles up allowing that these can be felt with more ease.
Step 2: hold the scrotum with one hand. Feel the two testicles at the same time. Although it is normal not to be identical in size, there should be no difference too drastic.
Step 3: Examine each testicle individually with both hands. Place the index and middle fingers underneath and your thumbs on the top of a testicle. Roll the testicle between your fingers around for about 30 seconds to cover its entire surface. Look for lumps or bumps. Each testicle should be smooth like a hard boiled egg, peeled.
If you think you feel something weird, don’t panic. Many men mistake the epididymis, a duct soft located on the back of each testicle, for odd lump. If you’re not sure or if you feel any lump, schedule a consultation with your doctor.
5 – go to bed more early
The levels of testosterone reach a peak during the morning, so keep a few irregular sleep patterns or sleeping less than 7 hours can affect sexual health.
Lack of sleep is also associated with many health problems that affect sexual functioning, such as hypertension, sleep apnea or diabetes.
6 – Supplements
If you don’t eat two to three servings of oily fish per week you can lean on supplements to maintain the levels of omega-3 fatty acids adequate. Try to take at least 300 milligrams of DHA and 400 mg of EPA daily to ensure the intake that our body needs.
Also consider taking anti-oxidants such as pycnogenol or L-arginine to protect the endothelium from damage and to facilitate the use of nitric oxide.
7 – Drink alcohol in moderation
While it is true that a glass of red wine can improve the libido, a bottle can make a night of fantasy becomes a nightmare.
Various studies have shown that despite the fact that alcohol acts as a depressant of the brain that overrides the anxiety and the inhibition associated with gender, if consumed in large amounts can have the opposite effect.
With time, the chronic use of alcohol can cause chemical changes, hormonal and brain that negatively affect sexual functioning. On the other hand, alcoholism has also been linked with shrinkage of the penis and the testicles.
8 – Relax
Especially in men, stress triggers the production of hormones such as adrenaline, which stimulates the heart and constricts the blood vessels so that blood is directed to areas where it is needed most: the muscles, not the penis.
The bad news is that he must not suffer extreme stress couple to suffer its negative effects. Levels of chronic stress low as that you might produce a chief problematic, important deadlines imminent, or fear of financial ruin can interfere negatively in the erections and the sexual desire.
