It is no secret that many men around the world observe a decrease in libido at some point. This is due not only to a decrease in the amount of testosterone, but also to other factors. These include psychological disorders, unhealthy diet and lifestyle. Therefore, it is very often possible to get rid of this condition with the help of nutritional correction or behavioral reactions.
According to statistics 53% of people aged 50 and over already lose libido, before the age of 40 the situation is not much better, we are talking about 48% of men. That is, sexual weakness occurs almost the same at the age of 20 and 60. And it can take a man years to see a doctor. Only 13% seek qualified help, an even smaller percentage of men try to adapt their lifestyle and diet independently. For this reason, the percentage of men with weakened libido is only increasing.
Because there is a decrease in libido in men
Attraction to the opposite sex is the norm in all living things. It allows you to extend the ride and not be left alone in difficult conditions of existence. Although the latter condition is more related to the human race. Only 2 factors influence the decrease in male libido:
- Physiological. Associated solely with a decrease in the amount of testosterone in the body.
- Psychological. The amount of stress is of no small importance in a man's life. However, even the innate temperament is not at the last level. Much depends on the mood at a given moment, on the physical condition. If a man is tired, the potency is unlikely to be at the correct level.
And of course, a man's lifestyle is not the least important. Improper nutrition, lack of physical activity, constant overwork - negatively affect libido. For these reasons, young people are increasingly faced with problems with potency.
Not the last place is played by the age of a man, the older he is, the less pronounced the libido. Prolonged abstinence also has a negative effect on libido. Often the cause of sexual "weakness" is genital trauma or previous diseases of the genitourinary system.
Of course, many means, medicines and methods were invented to increase potency, there are special medicines. However, a one-time improvement shouldn't be misleading. The disease should be treated and the problem addressed. Most often, hormone therapy, herbal medicines and vitamins are prescribed, which will stimulate sexual function. Of course, if the problem occurred against the background of psychological disorders, it is necessary to consult a psychiatrist, get rid of stress and get rid of sleep disorders.
The massage and contrast shower can be used as stimulants. It is necessary to give up alcohol abuse and smoking, at least sometimes to play sports and change the way of life.
Dependence of potency on vitamins
It has long been known that it is no longer possible to obtain a full range of essential vitamins and nutrients from fruits and vegetables. This is due to the way they are grown, alas, but agriculture cannot do without chemicals. Therefore, it is recommended to introduce additional vitamins into the diet by consuming food supplements.
Some of the most useful are:
- Vitamin A or carotene. Activates phagocytosis and prevents the penetration of infections into the body, stimulates the production of antibodies and prevents inflammation.
- Vitamins of group B. To eliminate the feeling of anxiety, you should increase the amount of vitamin B9, which increases the amount of the hormone of happiness.
- Vitamin C. It also stimulates testosterone production and prevents persistent colds.
- Vitamin D. Improves reproductive function, and not only miners, but also all city dwellers suffer from its absence.
- Tocopherol. This vitamin is responsible for the synthesis of testosterone, so it is extremely important for the male body. It is necessary for the normal functioning of the endocrine system and for the production of sperm.
It is very important to have foods rich in magnesium, zinc and selenium in your diet. Zinc deficiency stimulates a decrease in testosterone levels and a lack of selenium can lead to infertility. Magnesium is needed to stabilize and improve blood flow, potassium strengthens the walls of blood vessels.

Potentially harmful products
There are 4 main enemies of power:
- Sale. Indeed, it stimulates the digestive process and should not be completely abandoned. But fast foods, fatty foods, all harmful and cooked products in an industrial environment always contain a huge amount of salt. For this reason, at least some of the salt in the diet should be replaced with spices and herbs.
- Alcoholic beverages. Of course, if you drink a glass of wine before intercourse, the potency will only improve, but if you drink alcohol constantly and in unlimited quantities, there is no talk of potency. Also, when planning the continuation of the race, it is necessary to give up alcohol.
- Cholesterol. Another enemy of power and of the whole organism as a whole. It is its increase that leads to the appearance of plaques in the vessels, atherosclerosis and, consequently, the blood flow in the urogenital organs is disturbed, hence the problems with potency.
- Energy drinks and coffee drinks. Another modern enemy of male libido. Unfortunately, caffeine inhibits sexual function by suppressing hormones. This is not a complete rejection, just quantity control.
It is no secret that these products are the most loved by men.
