Many health and environmental factors play a vital role in the sexual health and virility of men. Modern day social stresses have changed, but demands of life remain the same. Maintaining a positive lifestyle, keeping physical, and eating healthy is sure to increase virility. This is not always easy to do. Managing life becomes difficult at times, but in order for a man to maintain sexual health, he must receive adequate sleep, have an awareness of the prostate, and learn to maintain adequate levels of testosterone.
Continuous lack of sleep breaks down the body’s ability to rejuvenate itself. Hammering away at daily life – work, children, home – can leave one feeling that there is not enough time in a day to complete all the tasks that must be finished before the day’s end. Although society has changed with the feminist movement that began in the 19th century, men’s virility is still determined on his worth – being the main money-maker in the family, as well as contributing to the family and society in positive ways.
The lack of essential sleep can slowly deteriorate virility as it decreases testosterone levels. The number of hours needed by individuals varies, but a good estimate is six hours. Adequate sleep ensures proper functioning of the body, and the stamina to keep robust virility.
The prostate is a small gland important in the male reproduction system. It surrounds the urethra. Prostate health is important in reducing the risk of cancer, enlargement, and/or infection of the prostate. These health concerns increase as a man ages.
Enlargement of the prostate is common. By eating foods high in vitamin C, or taking supplements if necessary to obtain optimum levels in the body, has been known to ease the discomfort of urination. Vitamin C acts as a gentle diuretic that makes it easier for a man to pass urine.
Maintaining a healthy prostate includes eating natural, whole foods rich in zinc (50-100 milligrams per day), antioxidants, such as vitamin C and lypocene, and participating in weekly exercise. Diet, exercise, and regular sex play major parts in prostate health. A healthy prostate makes for a healthy sex life.
Low hormone levels
The male body’s main hormone for reproduction is testosterone. Keeping testosterone levels high will increase virility. Sexual health improves when testosterone is at adequate levels. This is not just a concern for aging men, but for males of all ages.
Eating natural foods in amounts necessary to maintain sufficient bodyweight aids the body in producing healthy amounts of testosterone. Eating below or above what your body needs for living can cause the body to think that it is being deprived or being placed in a state of starvation. When this happens, the body decreases its production of testosterone.
Life continues to cycle with each rotation of the earth. Seasons change. People are born. People die. The cycle continues year after year, day after day, second after second. One thing that remains the same is optimal health and its role in virility. There is no escaping a healthy diet, exercise, sleep, and healthy emotions.
