You’re encouraged to come along with us to part 5 of this series covering the effects of marijuana use, and gum disease as these pertain to erectile dysfunction (ED).
While it is true that many prefer to include alcohol consumption to help get into the foreplay frame of mind, it can be more of a hindrance than a help. The result of some studies reveals that too much alcohol makes erections more challenging to achieve softer results. They have also shown that when reformed alcoholics were studied, they found that they were at a higher risk of ED problems than those men who remained sober. They explained that alcohol works as a depressant and, accordingly works against getting it up and having the energy to perform if you can. Keep it to two drinks or less and enjoy it more naturally.
Increase Exercise Intensity
We all know that exercise activities benefit many symptoms and parts of the body, and including your sex organ. However, some forms of exercise, such as easy jogging, aren’t intense enough to provide the erectile benefits which are available. Studies show that stepping up your intensity will help, especially for those men with high blood pressure issues. They recommend interval training programs as great ways to increase that intensity and the quality of those erections.
We’ve still got two more ways to discuss, and we’ll cover those next time. Until then, we encourage you to get established with a dental professional and have that vital evaluation as soon as possible.
