The ability to get it up and keep it there is something every man wants. To many, being able to perform defines being a ‘man’. It is understandable then, why being able to maintain an erection is so important to us men. As we age, erectile dysfunction (ED) becomes more common and this impacts a man’s confidence greatly. Sure! There are pills out in the market to ensure that your ‘little brother’ performs on command but wouldn’t it be great if we could just stay off the pills altogether by making some simple lifestyle changes? Like they always say, prevention is better than cure. So here are 5 simple ways to protect our manhood.
Getting Quality Sleep
We’ve heard it from our parents, our teachers, the news, basically everywhere that we should get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep every night but did you know that a lack of sleep even for a few days could affect our ability to rise to the occasion?
When we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies are not able to function as they are supposed to and it affects our testosterone levels. Needless to say, lower testosterone equates to decreased libido. A lack of sleep also affects brain function thus affecting the hormones produced by the brain also affecting your erection. Listen to your parents and get more sleep. It is good for you.
Brush Your Teeth
What has brushing my teeth have to do with my boner? Research has shown that people suffering from ED are three times more likely to have gum disease than those with ED. Interesting fact eh? The inflammation in gum disease causes the body’s immune system to get to work to fight the inflammation. The bacteria causing the inflammation could seep into the bloodstream thus causing issues with blood flow to the penis. Start brushing more often to avoid ED and the fresh breath and pearly whites that comes along with it should present you with more opportunities to make use of your boner.
This one is a no brainer. Exercise helps everything. Period. In relation to ED, exercise gets the heart pumping and therefore improves blood circulation. By now we should all know that better blood circulation means what? Yup! Better erections! Apart from protection your erections, exercise builds up your stamina which means longer lasting sessions as well as a sexy bod to attract the ladies.
Keep a Healthy Diet
No brainer part 2. A healthy diet means a healthy you which also means a healthy direction. We all know that we should eat healthy but what foods help prevent ED. Simple! Just remember that your penis is similar to your heart. If blood doesn’t flow, it doesn’t work. Foods that are healthy for the heart are also healthy for your penis and vice versa. Eating more whole grains, fruits, vegetables and healthy fats goes a long way in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. Don’t let your heart prevent your from having a good time.
