5 Easy Prostate (and Sex) Boosters
5 Simple Tricks for Prostate Health – and Better Sex
Most people think of prostate trouble as an “old man’s problem.” Ditto for erection trouble. But they’re not “old man’s problems.” Even men in their 20s may suffer. With that in mind, here are 5 simple tricks for prostate health – and better sex.
Trick #1: Shut off the TV and get walking. In one study, the men who watched the most TV were twice as likely to suffer with prostate trouble as men who watched the least. Men who watched 5 hours a week or less had the lowest risk of prostate issue.
What to do with the time you used to watch? Work out. Even walking can help. According to Harvard doctors, walking an extra 3 hours per week can cut your risk of prostate problems by 10%.1
Trick #2: Enjoy your morning joe. Even better, enjoy a cup of tea or two. Either way, get some caffeine on a regular basis.
A study published in the journal PLOS ONE linked caffeine with a lower risk of erection problems. Just two cups of coffee a day – or three cups of tea – should deliver enough caffeine to put you in the lower risk group.
In the study, men who got 85 – 170 mg of caffeine a day were 42% less likely to have problems getting erections.2
Trick #3: Go to the dentist. Need a good reason to brush, floss, and visit your dentist? How about cutting your risk of frequent urges, nighttime runs to the rest room, and painful urination?
In one study, 27 men with inflamed gums and prostate trouble went for dental care. Within as little as 4 weeks, 21 had a clear drop-off in their prostate problems.3
Trick #4: Get some sun. They call vitamin D “the sunshine vitamin.” That’s because your skin makes vitamin D when you expose it to the sun’s rays. About 20 minutes of summer sun is all most people need to make a day’s worth of vitamin D.
Guys, you’ll especially want to get your time in the sun. Here’s what a report to the 249th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society found.
Researchers took a group of men with a specific type of prostate growth who planned to have surgery for their condition. They gave some of them 4,000 IU of vitamin D daily.
After 60 days, the men taking vitamin D had less prostate growth than the other group. In some cases, the growth they’d already experienced shrank! 4
This study looked at only one type of prostate growth. But taking plenty of vitamin D may be a good idea for any time of swelling of the prostate gland. Because other studies have shown it’s especially effective at calming irritation of the prostate.
Trick #5: Think Thanksgiving dinner. I’m not talking about turkey or stuffing. But cranberries can help ease painful urination, frequent urges, and other prostate problems.
Cranberries may help… but you can get a bigger effect from cranberry extract. Studies show cranberry extract is very effective in helping ease prostate problems.5 Fortunately, cranberry extract is available in a handful of nutritional supplements.
Not everyone with prostate trouble has erection problems. And vice-versa. But they’re often related. With these 5 simple tricks, you may be able to ease one, the other… and even both.
Yours in continued good health,
