❗Harvard Study From 2024 Links Erectile Dysfunction to Poor Blood Flow

"YES, I Want Healthy Blood Flow"

If you’re dealing with low sex drive and having any erectile dysfunction… such as getting an erection or maintaining one during sex  – the primary reason is due to hormonal imbalances.

Typically you have low testosterone, high female, and stress hormones.

And I’ve mentioned this in the past…

However, there’s also a secondary reason for erectile dysfunction that can’t and shouldn’t be ignored and that has to do with poor blood flow and circulation – throughout your body, but more specifically to your penis.

BTW, this also affects women to a smaller degree by reducing blood flow to their clitoris.

In fact, I want you to quickly watch this short 30-second clip from Dr. David Perlmutter and Dr. Daniel Amen:

So there are two things I want to point out based on what was stated in the video clip:

The Harvard study1 points out at the primary non-hormonal reason for erectile dysfunction is “the most common cause is the inadequate blood supply to the spongy tissues in the penis that provide rigidity”.

Of course, poor blood flow also reduces the size and firmness of your penis.

The second thing I want to point out is how Dr. Amen stated that “it means you have bad habits”.

By this, he means that most people are “unknowingly” making the wrong lifestyle choices every day and thus, the “bad habits”.

And that’s what I quickly want to discuss today – 3 clinically proven and simple changes you can make right away, that’ll naturally improve your blood flow and circulation and thus, not only improve your erections — but also improve your health and entire vascular system … which of course, affects your muscles, heart, and brain.

3 Proven Ways To Improve Blood Flow and Fix Erectile Dysfunction

1- Diet

Diet can play a big role in improving your heart health and reducing your risk for a buildup of plaque. It’s never too late to eat a healthier diet. Just as years of bad eating can damage your body, good eating can help heal it and it can happen quickly.

  • Add more “healthy” fats to your diet. These are typically mono and polyunsaturated fats. They’re found in foods like olives, raw seeds, nuts, avocados, and fish. These should be RAW and uncooked.
  • Eliminate “unhealthy” and artificial sources of trans fats. Most artificial trans fats are found in processed, packaged foods like cookies and snack cakes. These have been heated and are hydrogenated. They are also high in omega-6 fats, which cause inflammation.
  • Increase your fiber intake. Soluble fiber helps prevent and remove plaque buildup. You can find soluble fiber in foods like vegetables, lentils, beans, and oats. I would also add fiber supplements as well, especially if you have a hard time getting it all from food.
  • Cut back on sugar. The sugar found in processed foods like cookies, ice cream, and sugar-sweetened beverages has no nutritional value. Unfortunately, sugar is hidden in almost all “man-made” foods. They increase your blood sugar levels… Which when combined with unhealthy fats, clogs your arteries.
2 – Exercise

First, we all need to move more. All we tend to do is sit all day long — computer, phone, driving, eating, work, etc.

The reason exercise is important is because it helps improve your youth hormones, which then helps your body naturally get rid of toxins – including plaque.

And in my opinion, “resistance exercise” is more important than cardiovascular. This means lifting weights – which can be with free weights, machines, cables, or simply your own body weight.

And if you workout quickly, it will also give you a very strong cardiovascular workout at the same time.

You only need 3x weekly, and I would also add daily walking.

3 -Take Specific Supplements

Taking specific herbs, vitamins, and minerals that are clinically proven to help improve blood flow and circulation, will give you the biggest and fastest improvements in preventing AND removing plaque buildup.

 

Of course, supplements do NOT take the place of a healthy lifestyle.

However, when combined together, it’s like being on “steroids”. You’ll get much faster and more dramatic results, with LESS effort.

And for many people, like my own parents, it made the biggest difference in REMOVING the plaque buildup — more so than preventing it.

Summary

If you want to finally fix your ED problems and dramatically improve your sex drive, make sure you improve your hormones, and don’t forget to ALSO improve your blood flow.

Your heart, mind, AND penis will thank you!

So make sure you eat better, exercise, and take specific supplements.

Make small improvements daily and within a few weeks and months, you’ll see and feel dramatic improvements.
