Natural Ways To Reduce High Cholesterol And Improve Your Erectile Dysfunction
While I am on a crusade to warn you of the dangers of high cholesterol and the relationship between high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and erectile dysfunction.
I most certainly must tell you as well as encourage you to take up natural ways to reduce high cholesterol as a very healthy way of improving your cardiovascular and erectile health.
The impact that high cholesterol has on your twinkie is horrendous, from reduced blood supply to lower testosterone to potential nerve damage caused by the onset of diabetes resulting in little or no “hey it’s erection time” signalling going on.
As a quick recap, that’s little or poor amounts of blood to fill your penis, possibly insufficient hormones to get you horny and to cap it all off the signalling mechanism can become damaged even if the other two were fine..the erection message might not get to its destination telling Ol’ Johnny down there it’s time to stop standing at ease and to stand at attention!
Natural Ways To Reduce High Cholesterol – Diet!
Without the risk of stating the obvious here – one of the best and most natural ways to reduce high cholesterol is by keeping a watchful eye on your diet especially where fast and junk food is concerned.
Foods that are high in saturated and trans fats pose the greatest danger as do dietary cholesterol from eggs and other such dairy products.
It is much easier said that done, that I do appreciate fully, and I am sure you do too when you realise that the recommended daily amount of cholesterol in your diet is the equivalent of just one egg – be it fried, scrambled or hard boiled!.
Now, I am not saying eggs are off the menu totally, just those two eggs in the morning – every morning is something you might want to revise!.
Moderation is key once or twice a week sure, go right ahead! – daily? well, unless you want to double your daily amount of cholesterol by 8 am and increase or worsen your risk of an unsatisfying or non-existent sex life due to erectile problems go right ahead it’s up to you! you are forewarned but further down the line, not much might be “up”!
I do wonder sometimes if men would pay more attention if fast food outlets and junk food, in general, came with stark warnings “Danger: May cause erectile dysfunction!” “Warning: may cause you to have narking, nagging unsatisfied wife!”.
Cutting out the junk food and replacing it with fresh, natural, and if possible organic fruits and vegetables that are high in dietary fibre is certainly one of the healthiest and most natural ways to reduce high cholesterol.
The obvious additional benefit is getting more nutrients that your body requires.
Of course, for helping with sexual dysfunctions you want to make sure that those fresh vegetables and fruits have the very vitamins, minerals and nitrates that your body needs in order to produce a good hard erection.
Those Vitamins are A, B, C, D, and E and the minerals Calcium, Selenium, Magnesium and Potassium. Examples of vegetables that help us to lower cholesterol and also help with erectile dysfunction include spinach, tomatoes, beets, avocados, broccoli, kale and other dark leafy greens.
Fruits include pineapple, banana, grapefruit, papaya, watermelon and pomegranate.
Cold water fish like salmon, trout, mackerel, herring halibut and sardines and brilliant food choices to make as they are oily and high in heart healthy and cholesterol-busting omega 3 fatty acids.
Do try to get a little bit of fish in your diet on a daily basis and avoid the canned variety as they often contain PCB’s and BPA which cause erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation!. They (the fish) might help with your cholesterol but the chemicals in the canned variety are not doing your sexual dysfunction any favours!
Natural Ways To Reduce High Cholesterol – Exercise!
Leading a sedentary lifestyle is doing your health absolutely no favours and it is hardly going to turn you into a regular stud muffin!. Moderate to intense exercise or as I prefer moderately intense exercise helps tone your muscles, increase your energy levels and naturally your sexual performance.
It also helps to lower your cholesterol levels.
Examples of moderately intense exercises include getting on your bike and cycling at least 10 miles per hour, walking uphill, doing laps of your local swimming pool, and walking briskly. This ought to be something that you do on a regular basis for at least 3 hours per week.
No excuses – we are only talking an hour every other day, which is very much within most people’s ability to perform.
Interestingly, regular exercise at this level of intensity increases your baseline nitric oxide production – with a nice caveat for the highly inspired and motivated – 2 hours daily of moderately intense aerobic workout can increase your baseline nitric oxide levels by 1/3! after 3 months!
And nitric oxide is that erection inducing gaseous substance that is absolutely needed for a good hard erection to occur! And there is all the motivation and inspiration you need to hit the gym and start working out!
Taking supplements certainly falls well within the range of natural ways to reduce cholesterol. Perhaps the easiest of all the methods mentioned!. Just how difficult is to simply pop a pill and reduce your cholesterol?.
Ideally, you ought to apply all of the above and take proven supplements to reduce your bad LDL cholesterol in conjunction with a healthy diet of plenty fibrous fruit and vegetables, some fish and regular exercise.
I compiled a rather convenient list of what I consider to be the Top 10 supplements that help you to get your cholesterol under control. Pop on over and check it out by clicking the link or post insert below.
You never know you might just find your ideal supplement to keep you from under the cholesterol cloud on that list! – perhaps even one that can help you to increase the blood flow ‘down there’ too!
