If you’re over the age of 40, you may be experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED). Well did you know that heart health and erection health are closely related?
Studies have conclusively shown the obvious link between cardiovascular disease and erectile dysfunction. Erections occur when blood makes its way to your penis, which then becomes so engorged, it gets bigger and harder. For this natural physical mechanism to occur, you must have a healthy circulatory system.
As we age, and make poor lifestyle choices, the health of our heart and blood vessels takes a hit. And before you know it, you can no longer get an erection.
The bottom line is if your heart health is poor, your performance in the bedroom will be poor.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at some things you may be doing that are really bad for your heart:
More people are sitting all day long, and this is really bad for your heart. Think about it. Do you drive an hour to work only to sit in a cubicle for 8 hours, then drive home 1 hour, then sit in front of the boob tube all night? Try using a standing desk. If that’s not possible, get up and walk for five minutes every hour.
- Drinking Too Much
Drinking excessively tends to pack on the pounds, which ups your chances of developing high blood pressure and heart disease.
Stress hurts your entire health, from heart to penis. Learn how to chill through exercise, meditation or finding someone to talk to about what’s bothering you.
- Poor Oral Health
Our mouths are full of bacteria – that’s normal. But some people have too much of a certain bacteria that is associated with gum disease. If left unchecked, this bacteria can spread and cause inflammation in the body leading to heart disease and ED.
- Sleep Deprivation
If you are burning the candle at both ends, you’re hurting your heart and your Johnson. Studies have shown heart health is dependent on quality Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep cycles. So be sure to get at least 7 hours each night.
Here are Some Things That Are Great for Heart Health
- Good Oral Health
Your oral health is a good indication of your overall health. Floss daily and brush at least twice to prevent gum disease. Bacteria in the mouth can move into the blood stream and effect other organs!
Studies have shown that people who get fewer than 6 hours of sleep nightly have a higher risk for developing heart disease. Get 7 to 8 hours each night.
- Aerobic Exercise
Your heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked out. You should get some aerobic exercise at least three times a week for at least half an hour.
Berries are loaded with heart-healthy phytonutrients and soluble fiber. Blueberries are especially good for your heart and overall health.
- Red Wine
Studies have shown that a little red wine each day can help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and improve good cholesterol (HDL). Just one to two glasses though, don’t overdo it.
