Men: Tips To Improve Sexual Function

Do you feel like your sexual function could use a boost? Fortunately, there are a number of ways men can enhance their sexual performance. This could be to either improve existing problems or find new ways to keep their partner happy. The good news is this can be done without the use of prescription medications or male enhancement pills. These tips are all natural.

Take care of your cardiovascular health

How the penis functions depends on your blood pressure. The brain sends signals to your penis, which causes vessels to fill with blood. Your heart pumps that blood. When something interferes with this blood flow, the penis can have hard time getting an erection. Always remember that what is good for your heart is also good for your erectile function.

Chillies and peppers: All-natural spicy foods help your blood flow by reducing hypertension and inflammation. Omega-3 acids: Found in salmon, tuna, avocados, and olive oil. This type of fat increases blood flow. Vitamin B1: Helps signals in your nervous system move quicker, including signals from your brain to your penis. Found in pork, peanuts, and kidney beans. Eggs: High in other B vitamins, eggs help balance hormone levels, which can decrease stress that often inhibits an erection.

Reduce stress

Most men are probably aware that stress puts a damper on their libido. More stress leads to an increased heart rate and blood pressure. This interferes with your libido and sexual performance. A good way to minimize stress it through exercise. Talking to your partner about your stress can also help.

Avoid smoking and excess alcohol consumption

Smoking and consuming alcohol may feel like ways to relax, but they could also be the reason you have trouble getting an erection. While studies suggest that a little red wine can improve circulation, too much alcohol can have adverse effects. Stimulants narrow blood vessels and have been linked to impotence. Replacing bad habits with healthy ones, like exercise and eating well, can help boost sexual health.
