Gentlemen, you may have already accepted the fact that your “Casanova” days are over but if you’ve found yourself coming up short in the romance department, it may be a sign of something more serious. I’m talking about your heart health.
Even if it doesn’t feel like anything is wrong, what’s not happening down below may be a sign that something is wrong.
According to a new meta-analysis, inability to perform “in the moment” could be a sign of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Researchers reviewed 28 studies that included over 3,000 participants and found that guys who experienced a certain lack of “oomph” below the belt were significantly more likely to have two hidden risk factors for CVD.
First, their endothelial cells, which line the inside of blood vessels and help them dilate fully, were more likely to be impaired. And we know that when those cells don’t function properly, your blood can’t flow freely… and your risk of heart attack and stroke shoots through the roof.
Second, they were also more likely to have a precursor to atherosclerosis, which causes your arteries to become clogged with cholesterol and hardened with plaque.
And, as I’ve shared with you before, you want those arteries to be more like garden hoses (flexible) and less like lead pipes (stiff).
That may be why previous studies have shown that men with bedroom issues like these are over 70 per cent more likely to die prematurely!
So, don’t sweep these potential heart problems under the rug… but the solution isn’t necessarily popping one of those “little blue pills” OR taking a statin drug to bring your cholesterol numbers down.
Instead, get your blood pumping freely to ALL areas of your body — and to do that, I recommend that my patients take a potent “cocktail” of L-arginine, pycnogenol, and red ginseng (sometimes called Korean ginseng or Panax ginseng).
And since what’s good for your heart is also good for your “manhood,” address both by making some lifestyle changes: Quit smoking, lose weight, manage your blood sugar, and keep your blood pressure in an optimum range.
Getting more exercise is a “secret weapon” that will help you keep many of those factors under control — and anything you do to build muscle and strength will do a world of good in helping you feel more “manly.”
Wishing you the best of health,
