Best foods to help improve ‘strength’ in the bedroom
(Men’s Health) According to a new study, men who enjoyed a regular glass of red wine and plenty of citrus fruits and berries were less likely to develop erectile dysfunction.
Here 5 foods for harder erections.
Oysters are rich in zinc and vitamin B6, both of which are vital for testosterone.
If you don’t love oysters, boost your testosterone with nuts and seeds instead.
When your face flushes after eating a curry, that’s the blood vessels expanding thanks to the effect of the chillies. And it’s not just the blood vessels in your face that get the boost. Biologically speaking a hard-on is simple hydraulics – more liquid (blood) being forced into little tubes (blood vessels) in your penis – so what you need is a strong heart and smooth, healthy pipework.
The omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish make the blood less sticky, enhancing blood flow to the parts that matter. Eat fish like salmon, mackerel, trout and fresh tuna twice a week to keep your arteries well-oiled.
Cherries are packed full of anthocyanins, colorful plant chemicals which protect your artery walls, helping prevent the fatty plaques that lead to atherosclerosis, or clogged arteries. Berries, or brightly coloured fruit such as peaches, nectarines and plums, will all keep your arteries smooth, too.
Wine – especially red wine – is a great source of the antioxidant resveratrol, which helps open the arteries by enhancing the production of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide allows the blood vessels to expand, and this is how Viagra works. But while the little blue pill only works on tiny blood vessels, resveratrol helps your main arteries too. Make sure you stop at one or two glasses of wine – too much alcohol leads to the dreaded droop. Read the full story at Men’s Health.
