It's no secret that many men around the world observe a decrease in libido at some point. This is due not only to a decrease in the amount of testosterone, but also to other factors. These include mental disorders, poor diet and lifestyle. Therefore, very often it is possible to get rid of such a condition by correcting dietary or behavioral responses.
According to statistics, 53% of those over 50 already lose their libido, before the age of 40 the situation is not much better, we're talking about 48% of men. That said, sexual weakness occurs almost equally between the ages of 20 and 60. And it can be years before a man see a doctor. Only 13% seek qualified help, an even smaller percentage of men try to adapt their lifestyle and diet independently. For this reason, the proportion of men with a weakened libido only increases.
Why the libido decreases in men
The attraction to the opposite sex is the norm in all living things. It allows you to extend the race and not be alone in difficult living conditions. Although the last condition is more related to humanity. Only 2 factors influence the decline in male libido:
- Physiological. Associated solely with a decrease in the amount of testosterone in the body.
- Psychological. The amount of stress is of no small importance in a man's life. However, the innate temperament is not on the last level either. Much depends on the mood at a particular moment, on the physical condition. When a man is tired, the potency is unlikely to be at the right level.
And of course a man's lifestyle is not least important. Improper diet, lack of physical activity, constant overload - affect the libido. For these reasons, young people are increasingly confronted with potency problems.
Not the last place is played by the age of a man. The older he is, the less pronounced the libido. Longer abstinence also has a negative effect on libido. Often the cause of sexual "weakness" is genital trauma or previous diseases of the urogenital system.
Of course, many means, drugs and methods have been invented to increase their effectiveness. There are special drugs. However, a one-time improvement should not be misleading. The disease should be treated and the problem treated. Most often, hormone therapy, herbal medicines and vitamins that stimulate sexual function are prescribed. Of course, if the problem arose against the background of mental disorders, then it is necessary to consult a psychiatrist, reduce stress and get rid of sleep disorders.
Massage and contrast shower can be used as stimulants. It is necessary to give up alcohol abuse and smoking, at least sometimes, in order to exercise and change lifestyle.
Dependence of the effectiveness of vitamins
It has long been known that it is no longer possible to obtain a full range of essential vitamins and nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, this is due to the way they are grown, but agriculture cannot do without chemicals. Therefore, it is recommended that you add vitamins to your diet by consuming nutritional supplements.
Some of the most useful are:
- Vitamin A or carotene. It activates phagocytosis and prevents infections from entering the body, stimulates the production of antibodies and prevents inflammation.
- Vitamins of group B. To eliminate the feeling of anxiety, consider increasing the amount of vitamin B9, which increases the amount of the happiness hormone.
- Vitamin C. It also stimulates testosterone production and prevents persistent colds.
- Vitamin D. It improves reproductive function and not only miners but all city dwellers suffer from its absence.
- tocopherol. This vitamin is responsible for testosterone synthesis and is therefore extremely important for the male body. It is needed for the normal functioning of the endocrine system and the production of sperm.
It is very important to have foods high in magnesium, zinc, and selenium in your diet. Zinc deficiency stimulates a decrease in testosterone levels, and a deficiency in selenium can lead to infertility. Magnesium is needed to stabilize and improve blood circulation. Potassium strengthens the walls of the blood vessels.
Balanced diet for men
Men who never want to be confronted with a potency problem should include the following products in their menu:
- Garlic and onions stimulate blood flow to the entire urogenital system throughout the body.
- bananas, which are high in potassium, a substance that stabilizes blood pressure and increases sex drive;
- hot spices, especially chilli, to stimulate libido.
Men are advised to include foods high in omega-3 in their diet. This fat stimulates blood circulation. This substance is rich not only in fish, but also in olive oil and avocado.
You need to eat eggs that are rich in B vitamins, which improve hormone levels and prevent the negative effects of stress on the body. In addition, vitamins of this group make the erection more stable.
The most useful products for potency
Since ancient times there have been products classified as aphrodisiacs, which again confirms that men always had problems with potency, but they tried to prevent them. Libido stimulating foods include:
- dried fruits;
- nuts of almost all kinds;
- Pumpkin, dandelion and nettle seeds.
In addition, it is better to forego white bread and give preference to rye. There are many cocktail recipes made from healthy ingredients that stimulate potency. A mixture of brewer's yeast and eggs, honey and milk is ideal. Men are generally advised to consume honey, especially those made from jasmine, marjoram, and orchid.
Mix sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and plums for an instant effect. It is necessary to take this mixture every day, in the evening, 1 tablespoon. The effect can be felt after 7 days.
A good effect can be achieved with a mixture of ginger root and honey. The components are mixed in equal parts and consumed three times a day with half a teaspoon.
In Japan, to improve potency, it is common to eat radishes and beets. Incidentally, the latter vegetable has only become a trend in recent years. The Greeks used pink onions for these purposes.
Products that immediately improve effectiveness
This does not mean that there are foods that increase libido immediately when consumed. It still takes a certain amount of time from a day to a week for them to work. The products that stimulate its effectiveness are:
It is recommended to consume pomegranates and figs regularly. In no case should you refuse protein foods. But, as such products, you shouldn't eat fatty meat, but seafood. Useful olive and flaxseed oil.
Casanova spoke about the fact that he often ate chocolate and nuts, and in this way he had the opportunity to be tireless in bed.
Potentially harmful products
There are 4 main enemies of potency:
- salt. In fact, it stimulates the digestive process and shouldn't be completely abandoned. However, fast foods, fatty foods, and harmful cooked products in an industrial setting always contain a large amount of salt. For this reason, at least some of the salt in the diet should be replaced with herbs and spices.
- Alcoholic beverages. Of course, if you drink a glass of wine before intercourse, the potency will only improve, but if you drink alcohol constantly and in unlimited amounts, then there can be no question of potency. In addition, when planning the continued existence of the family, it is necessary to refrain from alcohol.
- cholesterol. Another enemy of potency and the whole organism as a whole. It is its increase that leads to the appearance of plaques in the vessels, atherosclerosis and, accordingly, a disruption of blood flow in the genitourinary organs, hence the problems with its effectiveness.
- Energy drinks and coffee drinks. Another modern enemy of male libido. Unfortunately, caffeine inhibits sexual function by suppressing hormones. This is not a complete rejection, just a quantity control.
It's no secret that these products are the most popular among men.
Drinks that are useful for male strength
Of course, you can buy a drug in the pharmacy, but there are many proven drinks that will really make you feel best in bed with a woman.
You can try the recipe from Henry IV, famous for his heroics in bed. Before the night of love, he drank a mixture of egg yolks and cognac.
There is also a recipe called "Papal Sauce" that contains several ingredients:
- Parsley, previously soaked in chicken broth and wine, with garlic;
- lemon peel;
After toasting the celery root and the mixture of ingredients, add the quail eggs and nutmeg.
But the simplest recipe for our region is a ginseng brew. This plant has a toning effect and will be worth gold in eastern countries. Ginseng is especially effective when libido problems are linked to an unstable psycho-emotional state.
Men too shouldn't forget that pomegranate, beet juice, celery drink have excellent properties.
Men should not forget that they also need to monitor their weight and limit the amount of alcoholic beverages that will negatively affect its effectiveness.
