There isn’t a single man on this planet that would say no to hard, strong and lasting erections.
The good news is that the food you eat, along with your lifestyle can greatly help you in this regard and ever cure erectile dysfunction without artificial drugs like Viagra or Cialis.
But before we list some of the foods you can start incorporating in your diet I feel it is important to understand how erection actually functions and what are the underlying principles.
Penis erection is caused by the engorgement of the penis with blood.
This engorgement occurs when the blood vessels delivering blood to the penis increase the delivery of blood and the blood vessels carrying blood away from the penis decrease the removal of blood.
Under normal conditions, sexual stimulation leads to the production and release of nitric oxide in the penis.
Nitric oxide then activates the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).
It is the cGMP that is primarily responsible for the erection by affecting the amount of blood that the blood vessels deliver and remove from the penis. Now, in your body there is also an enzyme called PDE5 and this enzyme can break down cGMP and destroy your erection.
Viagra and Cialis are basically PDE5 inhibitors, meaning they destroy or keep PDE5 very low, allowing cGMP to do its work.
Now you know scientifically how erection works.
In plain words, the better the circulation and expansion of blood vessels the better you erections are.
This is the most important factor, but to have the best sexual performance there are many different factors.
Unfortunately, few men know this factors and that is why many fail to have optimal sexual performance.
Do not fear, we are here to give you the solution.
The optimal sexual performance comes down to these four factors:
- TESTOSTERONE – this is the defining male hormone and it must be high enough to allow sexual arousal and healthy libido
- DOPAMINE – this is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the body, it has many functions: mood, memory, pleasurable reward etc. For our subject it is vital for creating desire and healthy libido
- HEALTHY CIRCULATION and HIGH NITRIX OXIDE levels to cause expansion of blood vessels and thus erection
- PDE5 enzyme – this enzyme must be low enough so erection doesn’t go away. Many guys have this problem, they get the erection, but then it gets soft quickly. This means there is a high level of this enzyme in your system.
If you incorporate foods that will help you increase testosterone, dopamine, increase your circulation and help bloc PDE5 enzyme you will go long way to hard and lasting erections.
There are specific natural supplements and herbs that can literally skyrocket all these factors, but more on those in our upcoming program.
Until then try to incorporate these foods into your diet:
Watermelon has been picked as being a natural Viagra food and here’s why.
What Viagra does it that it helps to relax the blood vessels in a man’s penis, and allows blood to flow into his Corpus Cavernosum and Spongiosum when you become sexually excited.
Experts claim that watermelon works in a like manner due to ‘citrulline’, a chemical found in the fruit.
Citrulline kick starts the production of the amino acid arginine that helps in production of nitric oxide that helps relax and dilate blood vessels and hence, improves the circulation of blood the same way Viagra does.
Don’t do binging on watermelon now, it is a fruit that is high in fructose and if you take too much watermelon it can make you gain fat and negate the positive effects it has. Stick to 1 to 2 slices a day.
Wine – especially red wine – is a great source of the antioxidant phytochemical resveratrol, which helps open the arteries by enhancing the production of nitric oxide.
Unlike Viagra which works only tiny blood vessels, resveratrol helps your main arteries too.
Make sure you stop at one or two GLASSES of wine – too much alcohol leads to the dreaded droop.
ONIONS AND GARLIC
The phytochemical allicin in onions and garlic thins the blood and enhances your circulation, as well as making it less likely to clot and clog.
Garlic has also be proven to increase testosterone level when is taken daily for 2-3 weeks.
Add it to dishes at the end of cooking or crush it and mix it with a tablespoon of honey.
The easiest way to get a ‘hard on’ is by pushing more blood into your penal blood vessels.
So remember how your face becomes red after eating spicy food?
Chilies have a similar effect on a man’s genitals.
This powerful and healthy spice acts similar as chilies but with greater effect.
An active compound capsaicin acts as an anti-inflammatory protecting you from formal kinds of inflammation and dilutes blood vessels and promotes circulation.
It’s s so powerful that before modern drugs and medicine it was given to patient suffering from heart attack.
Use it as a spice or mix it in with a cup of water and drink it before sex.
DARK BERRIES – CHERRIES, BLUEBERRIES, BLACKCURRANT
All dark berries are very rich in antioxidants that protect your blood vessels.
Cherries are full of anthocyanins, colorful plant chemicals which protect your artery walls, helping prevent the fatty plaques that lead to atherosclerosis or clogged arteries.
Don’t fancy cherries?
Berries, or brightly colored fruit such as peaches, nectarines and plums, will all keep your arteries smooth as a baby’s nether regions.
SALMON AND SARDINES
The omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish make the blood less sticky, enhancing blood flow to the parts that matter.
Eat fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel twice a week to keep your arteries well-oiled.
This delicious fruit will not only satisfy your taste buds but it will help you get better erections in multiple ways.
Several studies have shown that after eating pomegranate for 2 week testosterone levels increase by 22%.
Personally, my recommendation would be to take it at least 3 times a week to experience benefits.
Besides its ability to increase testosterone it boosts the production of nitrix oxide which expands blood vessels and allows your penis to flood more blood.
Another benefit is that it increases sperm quality so if you are trying to get your woman pregnant run and buy some pomegranates.
NUTS – BRAZIL NUTS AND WALNUTS
Although all nuts are healthy and have their benefits I decided to single out these two as the most potent in helping with erection.
Brazilian nuts are the richest food in the world in selenium which is an incredibly important trace mineral that acts as a building block for testosterone and extremely potent antioxidants.
Walnuts are rich in zinc which is crucial mineral for testosterone production and are also the best source of omega 3 fatty acids among nuts.
Omega 3 will keep your blood vessels healthy and elastic, allowing them to create a hard erection.
Known for decades around the world as the ultimate aphrodisiac, there is a reason for their sexy reputation.
Oysters are rich in the mineral zinc and vitamin B6, both of which are vital for testosterone production and a healthy sex drive.
Make sure to find fresh and well-kept oysters because it is very easy to upset your stomach.
