Libido and Sexual Performance - 12 Health Issues That Can Kill It
Sexual health is at the forefront of practically every guy's mind.
No matter how well your life is going, if your sex life isn't satisfying, you're still probably frustrated. An active sex life is one of the keys to maintaining elevated self-perception and maintaining a sense of manhood and masculinity.
There are millions of men all over the country that struggle and suffer from a low sex drive and Sexual Dysfunction.
While it's true that issues such as Low-T and circulatory problems play a significant role in Erectile Dysfunction and diminished sex drive, there are also a variety of steps that you can take to improve your sexual drive and potency vastly.
There are many lifestyle and diet factors that contribute to sexual malfunction. While looking over this list, think about what you could do to improve your reproductive health.
Also recognize that by controlling these factors, you can enhance your life in a variety of other ways.
Chronic Stress Causes Sex Drive to Plummet
There's nothing more distracting than stress. Chronic stress impairs your ability to focus on the things that give you pleasure and leave you stuck in a rut of anxiety.
Chronic Stress also contributes to Testosterone Deficiency and Low Libido, because it leads to the production of a catabolic hormone known as Cortisol.
Cortisol is useful for helping us cope with and manage stressful situations, but Chronic Stress causes hormone balance to fall out of whack.
When the body produces too much Cortisol, it also releases less Testosterone. This is both terrible for your health and your sex drive.
Inadequate Sleep Leads to Lower Testosterone Levels
Our bodies require sleep to function. Not only do we need to sleep, but we need regular, refreshing sleep. Most adults require between seven and nine hours of sleep each night.
If you don't get enough rest, or if you have underlying issues which hinder your sleep quality, this directly suppresses Testosterone Production, as well as the secretion of Human Growth Hormone.
Conditions like sleep apnea have a significant effect on Testosterone Production and can contribute to Sexual Dysfunction.
Statins Impair Sex Drive and Testosterone Production
Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is vital for protecting the cardiovascular system, but the same drugs that treat cholesterol imbalance also mess with your Testosterone Levels, sadly.
Cholesterol is essential because it is a building block for a variety of the body's hormones, including Testosterone. What's critical is getting plenty of HDL Cholesterol in your diet while limiting LDL Cholesterol.
Statins are a drug that patients with high cholesterol get put on.
Though the medicines work very well, they are not without their issues.
Clinical research has shown that using Statins for Cholesterol has a definite negative impact on Testosterone Production, primarily because, as mentioned, Cholesterol is necessary for the production of Testosterone.
