What can you do to avoid erection problems?
Besides stimulating and maintaining an erection with a little help from erection pills, there are some simple steps you can take that might help achieving and keeping that erection by yourself!
Improve your diet
An erection is the result of more blood flowing in your penis and at the same time, veins close up. So, the blood is trapped in the penis, it expands and holds the erection. But, when there is a problem with your veins, it’s possible that you won’t be able to get an erection. Narrowed bloodvessels can be the problem of the erectile dysfunction. Foods that may be damaging for the heart, the blood flow (therewith the blood flow to the penis) can be of great influence on the erection problem.
Keep the weight off
Besides the health issues as above that some foods can cause, they also cause overweight. Fat, fried, ready and take away meals contribute clogged arteries. So keep track of what you eat while working on that sexlife!
Stick to a few beers
Nothing new under the sun; alcohol is bad news for your erection. However it may feel like you’re really into it, a hard-on is probably not going to happen. Overuse of alcohol decreases testosterone levels, resulting in the lack of an erection or the climax.
Move that body!
More and more research shows that exercise is good for your libido. There are some simple and sometimes logical reasons for that. For starters, when you exercise, your self-esteem rises, you might lose some weight, you feel better about yourself, and all that has a positive effect on your sex drive! Also, exercise improves blood circulation, including the erogenous zones ofcourse... There's more, exercise causes the increase of testosterone! Let it just be the most important hormone.. So, to the gym then!
And finally, try to reduce your stress level. This is of course easier said than done, but stress doesn’t really helps you with getting that erection. It increases the level of adrenaline and this causes contraction of the blood vessels. Of course there are many causes of psychological stress, try to find out what's really going on and talk about with your partner.
