Smoking can easily sap the strength of your erections…

Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, reaching a certain age doesn’t make you vulnerable to erectile dysfunction.

Now while this may sound surprising, achieving a strong erection (no matter how old you are) is all about directing the right amount of blood flow to the erectile tissues in the penis.

And you shouldn’t get your hands on pills, creams and other artificial means that claim to bring back your ability to really get rock hard when the action’s getting hot between the sheets.

Chances are you’re just overlooking the following factors that can trigger bouts of erectile dysfunction. Make sure you read on to find out what these are…

You’re eating too much fatty food.

Like what I’ve emphasized in a previous post, what you’re loading up on in a regular basis can make or break your chances of really getting rock hard during sexual arousal.

And one of the deal breakers when it comes to erections is eating a lot of fatty food. Besides wreaking havoc to your blood pressure, it can also lead to the formation of plaque that can disrupt the circulation in the long run.

Now while it’s alright to enjoy your favorite fatty treats once in a while, just don’t make it a daily habit.

You love salty stuff so much.

Sure salt is an essential ingredient in cooking, but consuming excessive levels of it already causes hypertension, a health problem that can make blood flow in your body go haywire sooner or later.

Only load up on the right amounts of salt and you’re good to go. Same goes for your sugar consumption as well.

You smoke habitually.

You are basically introducing several dangerous chemicals in your system each time you light up a cigarette.

Although nicotine does have a calming effect when metabolized by the body, the unpleasant side effects that cigarettes have simply outweigh this.

One of the side effects that you’re in for is vasoconstriction, in which the blood vessels gradually tighten up and prevent blood to flow through.

Now imagine how that will affect your erections.

You don’t exercise.

I’m not saying that being a hardcore fitness buff is a must to keep your erections strong.

Simply making it a habit to sweat it out at least 15 minutes a daily should do the trick. You can go for low-impact exercises to start things off like slow jogging and biking.

So you're noticing that your erections are not that strong these days...

So you’re noticing that your erections are not that strong these days…

Let’s go straight to the problem right away…

You’re simply noticing that your erections are not as strong and stable like they used to nowadays.

Now while you’re still rising up to the occasion when you and your lover start getting frisky between the sheets, you feel that it’s just not the same.

However, this doesn’t mean that you’ve already got to reach for pills, creams and other artificial stuff that are commercially available these days.

Chances are you’re simply making a few mistakes that can have a negative effect on the quality of your erections. Make sure you read on to find out what these mistakes are…

You’re not loading up on the right stuff.

Sure this may sound a bit surprising, but what you eat and drink regularly can have an effect on your erections sooner or later.

This is because if you have a healthy diet, your body’s overall circulation will be kept ideal or may even be improved.

On the other hand, if you’re always going for the unhealthy stuff like food high in bad cholesterol, sugar and salt, the blood flow in your body will become poor.

And your ability to get rock hard during sexual arousal will be compromised when this happens.

You are drinking like a fish.

Now while I’ve emphasized in an earlier post that drinking alcohol moderately can be rather beneficial to your circulation, overdoing the whole thing can lead to the opposite.

See, apart from making you prone to alcohol poisoning, your blood vessels are also going to be vulnerable to vasoconstriction, a health issue in which they become pinched and already prevents the ideal flow of blood to where they’re supposed to.

Since the erectile tissues in the penis need a certain amount of blood to firm up to achieve an erection, this can be an issue in the bedroom if not taken care of properly.

(You’ve also got to kick your smoking habit while at it as well.)

You’re not exercising at all.

What happens to a car when you leave it unused and not given the attention it deserves for a very long time?

It deteriorates and there’s even a chance that it won’t run smoothly again, right? This is what will happen to your body when you have a sedentary lifestyle.

Unfortunately, this also affects your overall blood flow in the long run and we’ve already touched on what will happen when that problem takes place.

Here are a few tips to keep you getting rock hard always...

Here are a few tips to keep you getting rock hard always…

Now while I don’t mean to scare you, there are a few simple things that can easily make you prone to not getting rock hard when you and your lover are preparing for action between the sheets.

So if you’re looking to get a stable erection during sexual arousal each and every time, make sure you keep clear from the following softie syndrome triggers:

Packing a few extra pounds.

At its simplest, being overweight can be a factor when it comes to erectile dysfunction. Sure having love handles and a few chunks of flab here and there may not be that big of a deal to most guys, but weighing more than you should can easily make getting erections quite tricky sooner or later.

Apart from putting you at risk of health issues like obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease, being overweight can also lead to clogged veins and arteries that can restrict the flow of blood needed to achieve a stable erection when you need one.

Being too stressed.

Your brain releases cortisol and adrenaline during stressful situations. Although this is quite normal, having too much of it in the system can already impair significant functions of the body, including getting rock hard when you and your partner get frisky in the bedroom.

And just to make things even more terrible, these stress hormones also disrupt the normal production and release of testosterone in the body. Aside from making you feel distracted and take your mind off getting busy in bed as often as you normally do, low testosterone levels can also cause frequent exhaustion and lethargy.

Just imagine how your lover will feel when she’s ready for some sexy time and you’re simply not feeling it.

Having a penchant for salty and oily foods.

If you’re anything like most men, you probably have pork rinds, potato chips and buttery snacks on your list of favorite stuff to munch on. Although there’s nothing wrong with indulging in them occasionally, making salty and oily foods regulars on your diet can already be harmful to your sex life.

See, too much salt and oil constricts the veins and arteries that send blood to the erectile tissues to get you rock hard. And when this happens, it’s either you will only have a weak erection or none at all. It can even result to atherosclerosis, a type of heart disease that hardens the linings of major blood channels, if not taken care of properly as soon as possible.
