3 Lifestyle Habits That Can Boost Your Sex Drive

Boost Your Sex DriveAll the usual healthy habits are good for your sex drive—even if your low libido is caused by a condition such as diabetes or hypertension. Remember, sexual health and general good health are profoundly interconnected.

1. Get plenty of exercise
If you want to be "hot-blooded," then improve your circulation. Physical fitness can increase blood flow, which in theory can make sex more pleasurable since sexual arousal for both men and women involves increased blood flow to the genital area. And that can increase desire itself—if it feels great, you tend to want to do it more.

Exercise boosts endorphins, which lift your mood, and it can increase your energy. Not to mention that being toned makes some people feel sexier.

2. Eat a healthy diet
Arteries clogged with saturated fat don't bring as much blood to the genital area for arousal purposes. Hence the correlation between heart disease and erectile dysfunction.

But excess weight also messes with your hormones. "Obesity can shift the balance between estrogen and testosterone," says Michael Krychman, MD, executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine in Newport Beach, Calif. And low testosterone can bring down your sex drive.

Nutrition counts too. For example, an iron deficiency can lead to fatigue, which in turn can lead to low libido. (Eat your broccoli!)

3. Manage your stress
"How about a simple vacation? How about communicating with your partner?" suggests Irwin Goldstein, MD, director of San Diego Sexual Medicine and editor in chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine. "People are overworked and stressed, and they translate their overworked, stressed lives to a lousy sex life."

How many men realise that age is a major factor in their libido decline? If more men were aware of the research into the natural herb Butea Superba which has proven 84% successful in clinical trials, maybe 1 in 5 men would not suffer impotency. Butea works exactly as prescription blue pills by inhibiting the production of PDE5. PDE5 quite simply causes the loss of an erection. HealthyED pills (Butea) has also been proven to increase the blood flow into the tiny blood vessels in the penis. Obviously the more blood a man’s body can pump into this area the bigger and harder the erection gained.
Equally good news about Butea is that whilst it has been tested and proven to give men back their desire for sex and the ability to act on that desire. Butea is a natural herb and so has no known side-effects unlike prescription drugs. Another added benefit is HealthyED pills are taken as a daily supplement, often with breakfast and once in your system the positive effects are permanent. So, no rushing off to the toilet to swallow a blue pill when you realise it is time to perform! This all natural herb both offers a solution to an ever growing sexual health issue and reduces performance anxiety for men who experience performance related stress.
I cannot recommend the HealthyED pills highly enough and hope that you in turn recommend them or at least mention them to as many men as possible. Remember it is not just guys who suffer serious impotence issues that HealthyED can help. We have all had occasions where the mind is willing but the trouser snake is not!
