Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is said to be a common problem for ageing men. However, ED or impotence affects men of all age groups and can be a sign of an underlying physical and psychological condition.
Let's discuss tips to protect your Erection and prevent Erectile Dysfunction:
1) Maintain a healthy diet-
Research says that a bad diet can cause heart problems, which can affect blood flow required for the penis to get erections. Maintaining a healthy diet that includes vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, olive oil etc. can improve sexual function.
2) Stay fit-
Who wouldn't want to live with a fitness-conscious partner? Join a gym or practise yoga regularly. Running, swimming, and other forms of physical exercise can help you keep a healthy weight and prevent many health issues such as type 2 diabetes, nerve damage etc.
3) Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check-
Study says that high cholesterol or high blood pressure can lead to ED, as it affects the blood vessels that bring blood to the penis. Hence, it is advised to monitor blood pressure and cholesterol levels. You can buy the equipment and check your BP levels at home or get a regular check-up done through a doctor once in two months.
4) Workaholic is okay, but no space for alcoholic-
If you stay outside your house, 12 hours for work, your partner won't mind. After all, surviving the cost of living is no joke. But if you are alcoholic, not only will it upset your wife but it is also bad for Erectile Dysfunction. Chronic alcohol drinking can lead to nerve damage, liver damage that can affect your sexual hormones and overall health.
5) Stop smoking-
Remember the Maine Pyar Kiya movie dialogue 'Smoking is injurious to health'? Yes, smoking cigarettes can damage your blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the penis. So why risk, when all you can do is get away with the habit of smoking.
6) Don't worry, be happy-
Psychological stress and emotional health issues like anxiety, prolonged sadness can all make blood vessels contract. In a way, tension and emotional stress can cause erection issues. So why worry? Practice laughter and relaxation techniques to give your sex life a huge boost.
