How to Avoid Being Impotent

Being declared as being impotent is one thing you cannot dare think of as a man. It literally means being unable to fulfill your sexual obligation toward your sexual partner. Although impotence is an erectile dysfunction (ED) that mostly affects aging men, you do not need to develop the problem even as you age. It is however important to note that your present lifestyle determines whether or not you will develop the condition during old age. Below are just some of the ways through which you can protect yourself from being declared impotent.

Regular Diet
There is a common saying that what is good for your heart is good for your sexual health. That is a powerful saying with beneficial meaning. Food stuffs that restrict smooth flow of blood through your heart also do the same in your sexual organ. Note that your penis needs to receive sufficient amount of blood for erection and you need to avoid any food stuff that narrows your blood vessels. Not only will your heart benefit; you will also be running away from being declared impotent.

Body Weight
Excess body weight or obesity is known to be a foundation of many health problems including development of type-2 diabetes, bone problems and erectile dysfunction in form of impotence. You can do your body great good by maintain healthy body weight now in order to avoid being declared impotent in the future.

This is one thing you seriously need to watch out for if you need to avoid being declared as an impotent man in the near future. High cholesterol level in your body system coupled with high blood pressure damage your blood vessels, including blood vessels that supply your penis with blood. Damage to these vessels over time no doubt leads to ED.

Excess drinking of alcohol causes damage to your liver in addition to damaging your nerves. Excess alcohol in your body system also causes hormonal imbalance, putting you at great risk of developing ED and in particular impotence.

There is no doubt that we all live a fast lifestyle that otherwise exposes us to stressful situations and environments. It is only appropriate that you identify suitable ways of dealing with stress. This is because high stress level increases level of adrenaline hormone within your body. Any increase in the level of adrenaline causes your blood vessels to shrink, which in effect interferes with smooth flow of blood in your body. This increases the risk of developing ED.

There are no two ways about it. You always need to engage in safe sex in order to avoid being declared as impotent in the future. Indeed, majority of young men diagnosed as being impotent are those who engage in risky sex for which they contract STDs and physical injuries to their penis. Both physical injury to your penis and sexually transmitted diseases put you at great risk of developing ED.

These are just a few things that you must avoid if you intend to have a healthy sex life now and in the future when old age sets in. They are also the same things you need to watch out for in order to prevent impotence.
