Sexual Health

Poor nutrition affects every aspect of your life and that includes your sexual health. Loss of libido and impotency are two common complaints that can be linked either directly or indirectly to diet and nutrition. The lack of certain vitamins and minerals, and an excess of sugar in the bloodstream causing diabetes, may be responsible for many of the physically related sexual health problems.

Good Nutrition for Sexual Health

Healthy sexual function is successful only when the nerves and blood vessels connected with sexual organs are healthy. In diabetes for example, too much glucose in the blood is damaging to the lining of the blood vessels. It also harms the nerves that carry signals from the sex organs. What results is a lack of sexual sensation and/or inability to respond.

Vitamin C- Vitamin C increases blood flow, important for sexual health. Peppers, potatoes and strawberries contain vitamin C, as well as citrus fruits.

Vitamin A-This vitamin is necessary to produce both male and female sex hormones.

The B vitamin, niacin-This B vitamin helps dilate blood vessels and improves circulation.

Vitamin B6-Vitamin B6 can stimulate the gonadotrophin hormones that evoke sex hormones in both genders by decreasing prolactin, a hormone that diminishes the sexual appetite.

Vitamin E-This vitamin increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the genitals. It also enhances the production of sex hormones and increases vitality.
