Men’s Health: Weak Erection and Key Recommendations to Consider

Many men are unaware that the major cause of poor erection is insufficient blood flow to the penis coupled with the blood flow-restricting enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). These symptoms can appear on occasions; however, if they continue for longer than four weeks, this is believed to represent erectile dysfunction (ED).

You should be conscious of the possibility that your habits and life style might exacerbate or perhaps cause ED. Most of these actions decrease blood flow and cause erectile dysfunction. In this article, we highlight possible behaviors you should avoid if you have expirience symptoms of ED

1. USE OF NICOTINE IN EXCESS
Nicotine, which is included in cigarettes, cigars, and other similar items, reduces the effectiveness of nitric acid, which helps to dilate blood vessels to permit more blood flow. Your blood vessels may get damaged by nitric acid. The reduction of nitric oxide also has an impact on blood flow which in turn affects your sexual performance.

2. EXCESSIVE STRESS AND WORRY
According to research, psychological factors including stress and worry are commonly responsible for ED. If you are concerned or nervous, you are more likely to develop other problems that are linked to ED. These conditions include heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, excessive cholesterol, and alcohol use disorders.

3. INSUFFICIENT SLEEP
No matter how busy you are, you shouldn’t minimize the importance of obtaining quality sleep. Lack of sleep increases a man’s risk of atherosclerosis, a kind of arterial plaque that can restrict blood flow and cause erectile dysfunction. Try to get between 6 and 8 hours each night.

4. ABUSE OF ALCOHOL
Men must moderate alcohol intake in order to keep their internal organs fit. The basic challenge is not just the avoidance of excessive consumption of alcohol in itself, but the composition of the drink. Most alcohol have chemical additives like colourants, giving them the desired look artificialy, but in the real sense it is simply synthetic additives. Unguarded intake of these types of wines may be responsible for the damage of internal organs

5. APHRODISIAC SUBSTANCES
Most men, due to stress may find it difficult getting and sustaining erection without the use of aphrodisiacs. Available research show that constant use of these substances, just like any other drug, may cause dependancy which ultimately could lead to undesirable side effects
