Every man wants the ability to perform sexually well into his later years. In this day and age, we have pills and injections for such things. But let’s not forget about the rudimentary basics — healthy eating and a healthy prostate.
And a new study highlights the benefits of cooking with one simple, nutritious kitchen ingredient that can help bolster your prostate health. Scientists are suggesting that olive oil could be better than Viagra® at helping men perform in the bedroom.
Lightning in a bottle
In a study of more than 600 men conducted by the University of Athens, researchers found that those who consumed at least nine tablespoons of olive oil per week were far less likely to suffer from impotence than those who ate less. They also had significantly higher levels of testosterone.
Scientists said that a diet rich in olive oil keeps blood vessels healthy, maintaining circulation to every part of the body.
In addition, the study concluded that a strong adherence to a Mediterranean style diet — rich in vegetables, legumes, fish, and nuts (as well as olive oil) — cuts the risk of erectile dysfunction by up to 40 percent.
That sounds awfully familiar… Probably because that’s the whole premise I based two of my books on — The Hampton’s Diet and The A-List Diet — both of which are considered Mediterranean-style diets.
And as I’ve discussed before, anything olive oil can do, macadamia nut oil can do better.
Doesn’t it just make sense though? How many times have I reminded you that you are what you eat? The simple fact is, maintaining healthy lifestyle habits will have a major impact not only on your arteries, but overall quality of life as you age — including sexual function.
And if you stick to this way of life, your results are permanent — unlike pills and injections. That’s because maintaining a healthy prostate is essential to sexual function. And one of the best ways to do that is with your diet.
Eating your way to sexual fulfillment
Keep in mind that being unable to achieve or maintain an erection can be the first sign of atherosclerosis — which is a narrowing of the arteries that can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
My advice? Get checked for atherosclerosis. It could be a matter of life and death.
I should also let you know that I’m putting the finishing touches on my Ultimate Heart-Protection Protocol. It’s an all-natural plan to prevent and reverse America’s biggest killers — high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. In it, I discuss the diet and lifestyle changes that can get your circulatory system (and in turn, your sexual function) operating at peak performance.
I’ll be giving you all the updates on its release in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
