For men: 5 foods that can help you stay erect and sustain stronger erection

A healthy diet can impact your sexual health. Experts suggest eating certain foods while avoiding others.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), is when a man has difficulty attaining or maintaining an erection.

Its problems are usually due to not having a good blood supply to the penis, so foods that are good for your vascular system may also help prevent ED.

Therefore, the foods on this list will help you prevent this menace.

Watermelons

Watermelon is a natural source of citrulline. It is a phytonutrient that relaxes the blood vessels of your penis, which is very similar to how Viagra works. The highest amount of citrulline is found in the rind of a watermelon. So you can cut the rind, let it mix in the juicer and have the juice for maximum effect.

Foods low in sugar and fat

High amount of sugar and fat is a major contributor to weight gain and diabetes. As a result of the weight gain, the heart has to pump a lot harder to maintain the massive amount of blood flow required for an erection. So cut down on foods such as sweets, ice cream, sugarcane, jaggery, butter, rice and other fatty foods to maintain a long-lasting erection.

Foods high in Vitamin E

Peanuts, almonds, broccoli, mango and wheat are high in Vitamin E. This component helps in the healthy functioning of the arteries and veins, which promotes healthy blood flow and circulation within the body. As a result, maximum circulation of blood will also be ensured when you are sexually excited.

Dark green vegetables

They are the highest source of zinc and we have already explained their properties. Besides, vegetables also provide you with strength, which in turn will help in keeping your sex drive intact.

Foods high in Zinc

Zinc boosts the production of testosterone and enhances sperm mobility so it makes sense to consume foods rich in zinc. Also, it has been found that zinc depletion is the prime cause of erectile dysfunction. Further, diseases such as diabetes, digestive disorders and kidney and liver issues might also deplete the mineral more in your body. Milk, cheese, salmon, lamb, chicken, beef, turkey and peanuts are excellent sources of zinc.
