Did you know that some of the greatest solutions for below-the-belt problems are sitting right on top of the dinner table? Erectile Dysfunction can occur in men of all ages and with age, the likelihood of developing ED becomes greater. Diet plays an important role in maintaining a healthy sex life; It can help decrease the likelihood of erectile dysfunction and also will provide a wealth of health benefits. Here are some foods and drinks that our specialists at Corewave Therapy™ believe you should add to your daily meals.
Do you start your morning with a hot cup of coffee? If so, then you’re already on your way to combating erectile dysfunction. It is recommended that you drink up to two or three cups of coffee a day for this simple reason; Your body can use the caffeine. Caffeine is said to increase blood flow by relaxing the muscles and arteries in your body. This means easier blood flow to the genitals, resulting in stronger erections. Certain teas, like Macha, are similarly beneficial (for those of you who don’t like coffee).
Avocados have become increasingly popular in recent years and it’s easy to see why. Avocados can be incorporated into a variety of dishes, whether it’s in a salad or simply on top of toast. In addition to that, the health benefits of this fruit are amazing. Avocados are rich in zinc, which according to the American Society of Exercise Physiologists (ASEP) has been known to increase testosterone levels. They also contain Vitamin E, which boosts your sperm count.
Spinach contains a vitamin that produces a certain kind of body acid that can benefit your sex life. Eating spinach can create folic acid for your body, which has been linked to boosts in testosterone. Your body craves the folate found in spinach and eating the appropriate amount of spinach can result in up to 66% of your daily folic acid. Much like avocados, spinach can be incorporated into a variety of dishes, which makes it easier for you to eat healthier and maintain your virility.
Of course, a healthy sex life means having a healthy life overall. It’s important that your heart is in great condition and potassium helps in fighting heart disease and other cardiac issues. Bananas are rich in potassium, which helps both your heart and your sex drive. It’s important to be aware of just how connected your major organs are to your sex life. A healthy heart means healthier blood flow, which results in a healthier sex life.
You might not think that chocolate can be healthy for you, but it has been shown to increase testosterone. Dark chocolate has been known to increase your levels of serotonin, which greatly affects your mood. In addition to that, the consumption of chocolate (like coffee) can lead to easier blood flow in the arteries, meaning healthier erections and an increased interest in sex. Sometimes a little dessert isn’t such a bad idea.
When you live a busy lifestyle, it is common to let your diet suffer, but you need to keep the food you consume in mind to benefit your overall health and prevent ED. By drinking coffee and adding foods like chocolate, spinach, bananas, avocados to your daily meals, you will literally feel the benefits. For any questions or further treatment, we are here for you.
