How To Make Sex Even Better
Men's Health Singapore|November - December 2019
Snack on these foods to get a boost below the belt.

A crappy diet can do more than wreck your waistline—it can sink your erection, too.

Think about it: some of the smallest blood vessels and nerves in your body can be found in your penis, says Jamin brahmbhatt, M.D., a urologist at orlando Health. so if you’re slamming down junk like pizza and fries every day, your blood vessels down under may get clogged with fat and cholesterol.

This restricts blood flow to your penis, preventing you from getting hard when you’re ready for action and even putting your heart health at risk down the road. many of these foods can increase your chances of developing high blood pressure, too.

It may sound wacky, but you should treat your penis like a luxury car, says dr. Brahmbhatt. to keep your ride running smoothly, you need to fill it with the recommended fuel and keep up with the suggested maintenance. well, your penis needs the same—like healthy foods and plenty of exercise—to keep it going strong, he says.

Filling up with the right foods can boost your testosterone, strengthen your sperm, and supercharge your erection. even better, a good diet will keep your heart healthy. so, what do we recommend as premium fuel? these 15 foods are a good place to start.

Coffee

Your morning coffee may improve your sex life, according to a study of more than 3,700 men from the university of Texas health science center at Houston.

Those who downed the equivalent of 2 to 3 cups of a coffee a day—between 170 to 375 milligrams (mg) of caffeine—were less likely to report erectile dysfunction (ed) issues than men who skipped their cup of Joe.

Why? caffeine triggers a series of effects in your body that help the arteries in your penis relax and blood flow to increase, producing an effect similar to ed drugs like viagra, the study authors explain.

Salmon, Egg Yolks, and Fortified milk

Your d needs vitamin d, suggests one Austrian study—and the foods above are great sources of it.

After researchers had men take either 3,332 iu of vitamin d or a placebo per day for a year, they found that free testosterone levels—the powerhouse behind your sex drive—significantly increased in guys loading up with vitamin d.

Dietary Nitrates And Nitrites: Harmful? Helpful? Or Paradox?

“Eat your veggies, they’re good for you!” is a commonly heard mantra at dinner tables everywhere. We, especially health-conscious bodybuilders, know that veggies are good for our bodies and minds. Nevertheless, we may not know all the reasons why. It may just be that veggies provide necessary vitamins and minerals for metabolism and antioxidant protection. It may be that they contain colon healthy fiber to make you regular. Recent evidence suggests that it may not be the vitamins or fiber that bodybuilders and athletes should be focusing on. Green leafy veggies, and the roots of the same, are rich in inorganic nitrate, which has been getting more scientific press as of late.
