Adopting the Mediterranean Diet Could Improve ED
There is an old expression that says “you are what you eat.”
There is a lot of truth to that, and now some of the latest research says that what you eat, may also define your performance in the bedroom. New dietary studies have concluded that the so-called Mediterranean Diet may not only be good for you, but could make you “good in bed.”
It stands to reason that the Mediterranean Diet could be helpful in treating erectile dysfunction, if you understand ED’s root causes. At its most basic level erectile dysfunction has to do with poor blood flow. The Mediterranean Diet is well-known for lowering the risk of heart disease. The same reasons that increasing your consumption of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and olive oil – typical of the diet – can keep your coronary arteries from clogging up, can prevent decreased blood flow to the penis, that results in ED.
Another factor in high fat, high cholesterol foods contributing to ED, has to do with the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is instrumental in being able to achieve an erection. Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels in penile tissue to dilate, or open up, allowing increased blood flow to the erectile tissue. In fact, increasing the production of nitric oxide, is how most prescription ED medications work.
Nitric oxide is produced by a lining in the cells of arteries. If you are obese, or have excess plaque in your arteries, this lining is impaired, and leads to inadequate production of nitric oxide.
Other Foods and ED
Basically, if you think about it, any food that is “bad for you,” can also “let you down,” in the bedroom. So that means in addition to adopting a Mediterranean style diet, avoid sugary sweets and snacks, highly processed foods, or an excess amount of protein from animal fat. Instead, stick with lean meats and fish.
Beets and beet juice have been called “natures Viagra.” They are rich source of nitrates that convert to nitric oxide in the blood stream. But like the real Viagra itself, beet juice is not recommend for men who are taking nitrates for heart disease.
Other foods that have been known to have a positive effect on ED include:
- Cruciferous Vegetables
- Tart Cherries
- Oysters – yes, what you always heard is true!
- Dark chocolate
ED and Male Enhancement
While there are changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle that could help with ED, any food that claims it can provide “male enhancement” or increased penis size should not be believed. There are certain foods that can improve your sex drive, or even your ability to get an erection, as the research into the Mediterranean Diet seems to suggest, but, there is nothing you can eat that will enlarge your penis!
The truth is, most products that claim to increase penis size are dubious at best, and dangerous at worst. In fact, there is only one medically proven procedure that can both increase penis size, and provide a cure for erectile dysfunction. It uses PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, such as in the P-shot, or my own Gains Enhancement.
PRP is a special compound made from your own blood that stimulates the production of new cells and improves blood flow. Since it uses your own blood, there are no side-effects, and its enhancements can last up to a year or more.
Men who have received the Gains Enhancement report immediate results, including increases to both the length and girth of the penis. You would have to have penile implant surgery to achieve the same kind of outcome!
You can find out a lot more about male enhancement, erectile dysfunction and many other ways to age optimally in my latest e-book, The Gaines Guide to Renewed Vitality –it is over 80 pages of life changing and life extending information.
Would you change the way you eat, if it would help you “in the bedroom?”
Have you, or anyone you know tried any male enhancement products or treatments? What were the results?
