A man’s sex drive changes gears depending on his age. It goes from zero to overdrive and then back to zero again. If the man is not careful, the descent can be pretty rapid and it can ruin his love life and leave him feeling miserable about the one thing he cherishes the most – his manhood.
Here are some tips that should help men maintain, or even rev up, their sexual health:
Maintaining Testosterone Levels
Testosterone is a hormone that increases sexual desire and as men age, its production decreases. One way to maintain testosterone levels is to exercise regularly and build muscle mass. When muscles build up, it forces the body to increase testosterone production.
This helps you stay sexually active for a long time. You also must eat well-rounded meals (proteins and carbs) to maintain testosterone levels. If you cannot maintain this important hormone’s levels, you should consider taking testosterone shots.
An overweight condition reduces testosterone production, and therefore sexual desire. Extra weight makes you feel fatigued all the time and takes your mind off sex. You become inactive and become too lazy to indulge in a sexual encounter.
Plus, all men like to look at their own chiseled bodies, and when they see something flabby in the mirror, it puts them off. Therefore, all doctors recommend you shed weight if you want to be sexually active.
There are many factors that can adversely impact sexual desire. For example: medications for blood pressure, medical conditions like diabetes, blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, etc., injuries to the abdominal area, surgeries around the abdominal area, and more.
Regular intake of tranquilizers also lowers or even kills the sex drive. Therefore, if men experience a lack of sexual appetite, they must get themselves checked up and the treat the cause instead of the symptom.
Wearing a penis pump stretches the penile tissue and leads to stronger and long-lasting erections. The pumps help increase the penis’s blood-holding capacity, and also elongate it, leading to stronger erections and a bigger, thicker penis.
Many doctors recommend penis pumps to treat erectile dysfunction and small penis size.
Avoiding Certain Foods
Consuming excess caffeine and sugar can ruin sexual appetite. Sugar disturbs the distribution of nutrients in the blood by elevating the blood sugar levels. Caffeine works by impacting the blood vessels. Both sugar and caffeine combine to adversely impact the flow of blood to the organs, thereby affecting erection abilities.
Note that sugar includes all sugary fruits such as cakes, cookies, etc.
Leading A Better Lifestyle
Getting your 8 hours of sleep daily. Staying away from vices like smoking, drinking and drugs. Exercising regularly. Keeping stress away from your life. Leading a simple life. These are examples of a healthy lifestyle and you should stick to these if you want to maintain your sexual appetite.
Be Careful of Certain Activities
Bicycling for a long time compresses nerves and reduces sex drive. Sitting on an office chair the entire day makes you inactive, and the softness of the chair can impact your prostate health, leading to low-quality sexual desire.
The prostate plays a very important role in sexual health. As men age, their prostate starts growing – it is a natural process that you cannot stop. When the prostate enlarges (it is termed as BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia)) it leads to loss of interest in sex.
This is why all men must focus on prostate health as they age. Men must drink 6-8 glasses of water daily and eat a healthy diet. They must focus on foods that are rich in zinc and omega fatty acids. Eating lot of fruits and vegetables also helps.
They should avoid fatty meats because they can impact prostate health.
These tips will help you maintain and enhance your sexual health.
