Erectile dysfunction is a sensitive issue for any man to deal with and it is important to highlight it affects both younger and older men.
It should be easier for men to seek advice when they are experiencing issues with the quality of their love life and not feel embarrassed.
There are many possible causes or underlying health issues that can be responsible. One common issue is blood vessel health and function, which can inhibit performance.
The good news is, making some small lifestyle improvements can improve and in some cases even reverse ED. Here are three of the most effective ways to improve vascular health:
Nicotine, the main ingredient in cigarettes, is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it causes blood vessels to shrink and impairs their ability to carry blood. This can be a cause of ED.
The good news is the effects are temporary. After giving up smoking, as the nicotine comes out of the body, the health of the blood vessels will begin to improve in a short amount of time.
Men who do regular exercise tend to have healthier blood vessels. During exercise, blood vessels dilate and blood flow through the vessels is increased, improving their functionality.
There is no need to go overboard working out hours per day, even walking for thirty minutes a day can help to boost vessel efficiency.
It is easier said than done to relax, but stress has a huge impact on the body. There is a physical response to stress that can affect a man’s love life.
Cortisol is a hormone released in response to stress. It causes blood vessels to constrict, reducing blood flow. As your body returns to a more relaxed state, function returns to normal.
These lifestyle changes can make a difference to ED symptoms but it is important to seek advice if you are still concerned.
