A vast majority of men experience their libido plunging after the age of 30 and matters are not restricted to just a dip in their libido. In fact, it is often accompanied with sexual or erectile dysfunction.
Here are some of the causes of this decline in libido as well as steps to ensure male sexual wellness:
- Nitric Oxide Secretion– Nitric oxide levels begin declining with age. It plays a pivotal role in helping you get hard and firm erections by relaxing the penis muscles and allowing the blood vessels to dilate so that more blood can flow into the erectile tissue. There are some herbs such as horny goat weed that ensure improved and increased nitric oxide secretion. L-arginine is an amino acid that also helps increase its secretion and is often called the Nature’s Viagra.
- Testosterone– This is the hormone that gives you your male characteristics and also controls sex drive and sexual function. It is widely known that testosterone begins declining at about 1% a year after the age of 30. This means most men lose 10% of their testosterone by the time they turn 40 and feel the effects more profoundly. Herbs such as tribulus terrestris and tongat ali are known to enhance T levels without the side effects of replacement therapy.
- Blood Flow- Good blood flow to the genitals is one of the most critical elements for proper sexual function in men. Not only age but other factors such as lack of physical activity, obesity, excessive smoking etc., restrict blood circulation to the genitals and lead to impotence in men. Herbs such as ginseng and ginkgo can help boost blood flow to the entire body and ensure better sexual health in men.
Regular exercises, reduced stress levels, adequate sleep are all steps towards ensuring better overall and sexual health. Moreover, there are herbal and natural supplements that are a gamut of herbs and other nutrients that boost blood flow, enhance testosterone and ensure improved sexual function in men without any side effects.
