Our magazine is full of lifestyle and health but we hardly find a column regarding health care of our male hood. We never dare to speak about it. We consider it as it never needs so much attention that we can talk in public, although it is one of the most talked word in general.
As our decades pass and our health starts impacting its ability and we find it difficult to get the best job from it, after all our health is the major factor for its overall performance. It is very important to take care of it from the start. The good news is that it is not difficult, all you need to keep these simple things in mind:
- Weight under control
It is very important to maintain the body weight as our levels of testosterone depend mostly on our healthy body. As we know that obesity reduces testosterone levels in the body. Abdominal fat is not good. It converts your male hormone testosterone to the female hormone estrogen. It can clog up fats in the blood vessels and the arteries of the penis which result in bad quality of erection.
- Eat wisely
Always keep in mind that you are what you eat. If you are eating low nutritional food, then it will adversely affect the performance. It is very important to have balanced diet.
- Destress yourself
It is one of the biggest curses of our modern wrong lifestyle that our life is full of stress and we fail to find a way to get stress relief. It causes release of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline narrows blood vessels that create problem in erections. As cortisol hormones get excess then it drives your appetite which helps in accumulation of the bad belly fat.
- Don’t use tobacco
Tobacco is injurious for health, we know. But do we know that apart from causing deadly cancer it also affects all the organs in our body? It narrows our blood vessels, impairs blood flow, and decreases the supply of oxygen. In fact, it poisons our whole body.
- Consume alcohol in small amount
Alcoholic drink is good as long as we are consuming it in small amount. It lessens anxiety and can increase blood flow and can improve erectile function, but as we increase the quantity it will adversely affects us and it can be a major risk factor for erectile dysfunction.
- Sound sleep
Sleeping is the best way to maintain our body. It restores our brain and body functions. If we are not sleeping properly then it causes a disruption in endocrine, metabolic, and immune functions. It means decreased levels of leptin (our appetite suppressant), increased ghrelin levels (our appetite stimulant), increased cortisol, and increased glucose levels (higher amounts of sugar in the bloodstream). Better rest and sleep well.
- Regularly exercise
It is a gift. It reduces stress, improves mood, prevents fatigue, and increases energy. It reduces the risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, some cancers, osteoporosis, chronic medical problems, and physical disability. It helps our heart to pump blood better and makes our muscles stronger. It also improves the muscles involved in sex that improve your performance.
- Strengthen your pelvic floor muscles
The pelvic floor muscles are very important muscles that need to be exercised to be stronger because they are important and play vital role right from erections to ejaculation. Scientific studies found that pelvic exercises known as “Kegels” help in erectile dysfunction.
- Stay sexually active
You know it right that if you don’t use something then it will stop working, so better use. Scientific studies found that men who are more sexually active tend to have fewer problems with erectile dysfunction as they age.
- Always keep your relation sweet
Sweet, harmonious relation often leads to healthy life as there is a great benefit of good mind–body connection. If the relation is not sweetened deep with love definitely ED will affect the relationship
