According to the Boston Medical Group, 80% of all erectile dysfunction cases are caused by diet. Which is why you need to make these 10 foods that fight ED a staple in your daily nutrition.
Who knew a “problem” [more like nightmare] made to be so complicated and confusing by voices like Big Pharma and other companies with “quick fix” gimmicks could actually be so simple…
Up until now you probably thought erectile dysfunction had something to do with your testosterone levels, your age, or maybe this little falsehood called, “performance anxiety”.
When in reality, food is your #1 go-to cause and fix for this bedroom disaster.
But not just any foods. You need specific combinations of ingredients that heal your arteries and blood vessels, increase blood flow to your male anatomy, and boost your energy levels and health. And you can do so starting with these cookbooks specially designed for men suffering from any form of erectile dysfunction.
And Before You Run Out To Your Local Market, I Want You To Also Write Down These 10 Foods That Fight ED, As They’ll Come In Handy:
Hello nature’s Viagra! At least, that’s what the Daily Telegraph is calling this passionate fruit after a recent study published in the International Journal of Impotence research.
This double-blind study examined the effects of pomegranate juice on a man’s sexual health compared to a pomegranate placebo juice. Sixty-one sexually active males, ages 21 to 70 years participated in the study…
All the men in the study had mild to moderate erectile dysfunction for at least three months before the experiment. And the results were impressive. 47% of the men taking pomegranate juice reported an improvement in erectile function compared to the 31% of men consuming the placebo juice. The remaining 22% of men were absent for the follow up.
Pomegranates also reduce arterial plaque thickness by 30%, which excites and enhances blood flow. The fruit has also been shown to increase testosterone levels by 22% in peer reviewed studies.
Beets a rich source of nitrate. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen that is transformed into nitrite by bacteria on the tongue. When the nitrite reaches the stomach, it converts into nitric oxide which increases blood flow by dilating (widening) blood vessels.
Big Pharma drugs like Viagra and Cialis accomplish the same thing. Except, with beets you don’t have to worry about the high-priced, out of pocket expenses or the dangerous side-effects that come with these types of pills.
It’s important to note, nitric oxide is important when treating erectile dysfunction, as it is a necessary compound for successful sexual performance, however the root cause of erectile dysfunction is not nitric oxide, but instead an entire dietary issue which requires healing of your arteries, followed by increasing blood flow and achieving higher levels of energy.
This three-pronged approach can only be implemented via a dietary game plan.
Watermelon contains the amino acid L-Citrulline. A natural compound proven to increase nitric oxide, which, as we discussed above, will massively improve the function of your manhood.
According to this study published in the US National Library of Medicine, L-Citrulline supplementation improved the strength and quality of a man’s sex organ. Here’s a conclusion from the Department of Urology and Renal Transplantation in Froggia, Italy.
L-citrulline supplementation has been proved to be safe and psychologically well accepted by patients. Its role as an alternative treatment for mild to moderate ED, particularly in patients with a psychologically fear of phosphodiesterase type-5 enzyme inhibitors, deserves further research.
According to Chris Iliades, MD – Leafy green vegetables, like celery and spinach, may increase blood flow circulation due to high concentration of nitrates. Nitrates are vasodilators, which widen blood vessels and increase blood flow.
Several years before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first ED drug in 1998, several case reports on the beneficial effects of nitrates for erectile dysfunction had already been published.
The ED drugs on the market today create the same relaxing effects of nitrates on the blood vessels that supply your male anatomy. Only, natural nitrates which come from foods aren’t coupled with nasty and dangerous side-effects.
Super Dark Chocolate
A recent study in the journal Circulation found flavonoids in dark chocolate are also great for improving circulation. Which presents another possible “win” for men with erection problems due to poor circulation.
Remember, erectile dysfunction is not just a blood flow problem. Which is why these ten foods that fight ed are not the “be all” solution to erasing this under the covers disaster. It requires a three pronged approach. First, healing of the arteries via specific nutritional choices and food consumption. Then improved blood flow. Followed by increasing your sexual energy (as a bonus for you and her).
But this doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from super dark chocolate (70%+ of cacao). Flavonoids are naturally-occurring antioxidants that protect plants from toxins and help repair cell damage. Studies show that flavonoids and other antioxidants have similar effects on people. They may also help lower blood pressure and decrease cholesterol, two factors that contribute to ED.
According to this study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, pistachios can be the next sexual superfood for men struggling with erectile dysfunction.
Researchers in Turkey took 17 men with ED and gave them 100 grams of pistachios for lunch everyday over the course of 3 weeks. Results were measured using the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) scores and penile color Doppler ultrasound (PCDU) parameters before and after the experiment. The experimenters found ED markers were improved on the diet and cholesterol levels became healthier also.
This food isn’t for everyone. However, the oyster is a powerful aphrodisiac. One reason could be because oysters are loaded with the mineral zinc, which plays an important role in boosting testosterone levels.
And although low testosterone levels are not the root cause of erectile dysfunction, a low sex-drive certainly won’t help you in the love-making department. So low levels of testosterone will lead to some type of sexual dysfunction.
Raw shellfish has also been shown to increase libido in women just as much as it does in men.
Lycopene, a phytonutrient found in grapefruit is helpful with improving circulation and is great for bettering sexual function. Lycopene is found in deep red fruits like tomatoes and pink grapefruits.
Some studies show lycopene is absorbed best when mixed with foods high in fat like avocados, black olives, nuts, and olive oil. We’d recommend consuming an entire grapefruit in the morning for breakfast with half an avocado and a few egg whites.
Research also shows lycopene may also help fight male infertility and prostate cancer.
Oats are a good source for treating impotence. They are with the amino acid l-arginine that assists in ramping-up testosterone levels and boosting blood flow.
Oats have also been shown to reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure which also helps improve erectile dysfunction.
Walnuts are chock full of vitamin E, which helps sooth your arteries and crank up your testosterone levels. Walnuts have been shown to also increased nitric oxide production and similarly, lower blood pressure, significantly.
This is probably due to the high amounts of L-Arginine found in walnuts, which has been linked to an increase in nitric oxide production.
There you have it, 10 foods that fight ED.
As stated at the beginning of the article, 80% of all erectile dysfunction cases have been the result of diet-related issues. Which is why we recommend enhancing your sex-life with the Rock Hard Kitchen cookbooks created specifically for men with ED and other sexual dysfunction.
