In recent years, a great deal of attention has been focused on the benefits of eating a “Mediterranean diet.” Studies have indicated that such a diet does have good overall health benefits, but what about male organ health? Is that impacted by following the Mediterranean way?
Explaining the Mediterranean diet
Many people have heard of the Mediterranean diet, but some don’t know exactly what is meant by this term. Essentially, this means following a food plan similar to that which developed naturally in the Mediterranean region of the world.
According to the Mayo Clinic, such a diet typically has these features:
• A heavy reliance on plant-based foods (not just fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, legumes and whole grains)
• Using olive oil (or another low-fat oil) instead of butter when cooking
• Favoring herbs and spices over salt
• Limiting red meat, and choosing fish or poultry at least twice a week
In addition, many people choose to include red wine (in moderation) as part of a Mediterranean diet.
Studies have shown that following such a diet tends to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, as well as lower bad cholesterol levels.
Male organ health
But what about male organ health? Does the Mediterranean diet have an impact in this all-important area? According to some doctors, yes.
As indicated above, this kind of diet is especially good for cardiac issues, and a healthy heart has a direct impact on male organ health. For example, tumescence function is largely dependent upon the ability of the heart to pump a proper supply of blood to the manhood. When the heart is in better shape, it is better able to do this.
Fruits and vegetables tend to be kind to the heart, and there are some items that, due to their high flavonoid content, are especially good for keeping blood pumping. These include blueberries, citrus fruit, apples and pears. Red wine (again, in moderation) is also thought to be a plus in this area.
But what is the body is willing but the spirit is weak? If low sensual drive is an issue, it’s likely that the Mediterranean diet can provide a boost here as well. (As with any sensual health challenge, there can of course be multiple causes, so dietary alterations alone may not completely address a problem.) Bananas and watermelon are among the foods that can be helpful in this regard.
Manhood sensitivity is a key factor in how much pleasure a man derives from sensual activity, so keeping that sensitivity sharp and clear by protecting nerve function is advised. Omega-3 fatty acids have a significant nerve benefits, so eating foods rich in this ingredient, such as salmon, is essential.
Keeping male hormone levels up also aids member health, and the diet can help here as well. Oysters, tuna, avocados and bananas are some of the taste sensations that can increase male hormone.
There are many aspects of the Mediterranean diet that recommend it to men interested in maintaining hood male organ health. But diet alone cannot do the job; in addition to regular exercise, a man should daily apply a first class manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to his member. The best crème will include acetyl L carnitine, an amino acid which protects against peripheral nerve damage that can hasten a loss of sensitivity in the member. The appropriate crème will also contain L-arginine, an ingredient which aids in the creation of nitric oxide. This in turn helps keep manhood blood vessels open and receptive for increased blood flow when the call for sensual activity arrives.
