Can A Bad Diet Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

ED can be a side effect of another condition, as well as being its own condition. Today we examine if a bad diet affects your ED, how, and what can be done to alleviate it.

How A Bad Diet Causes Erectile Dysfunction

Experts say there is a significant link between a person’s BMI and their erection (BMI is body mass index, a value of a person’s mass related to their height – often linked to body fat percentage). Diets consisting high in fat can lead to blockages in the arteries. If these fats are not consumed as energy output by the body, they will be stored wherever is easiest throughout the body.

Through this process, micro-plaque, which is a combination of fat and calcium, can build up on the walls of your blood vessels over time. This build-up then reduces the maximum flow available through arteries, thus restricting blood flow to the penis. High cholesterol can also lead to this same dilemma, as food that is typically considered unhealthy is usually high in cholesterol.

As previously stated, it’s important to burn these fats in your food off before they are stored because it’s difficult for the body to convert stored fat back to energy ready to be used. The body will burn the easiest energy it can first, such as simple carbohydrates. This is why it is so important to have a balanced diet to prevent risks.

So What’s The Solution?

It’s not exactly a groundbreaking discovery, but it needs to be said: consuming healthy food will benefit your entire body. Your body depends on good fuel. Yadda yadda, healthy food, I know, but just know this: there are particular foods which are believed to bring specific benefits to those suffering erectile dysfunction. Kale, spinach, and other leafy greens contain nitrates which are said to be great in dealing with ED. Another source, beets, also contain a great amount of nitrates.

The reason nitrates are helpful is because they contain molecules that help the circulatory system. The molecules improve circulation by helping oxygen efficiently move through the blood vessels. This is a great solution for where impeded blood flow is believed to be causing dysfunction.

Alternatively, GAINSWave and the Priapus shot work to remove the build up on arterial walls. This is a great way to quickly eradicate your impotence with little downtime and no invasive surgeries. GAINSWave treats the root cause of these issues using high frequency, low-intensity shock waves to improve blood flow to the penis, repairing damaged blood vessels and removing decades of micro-plaque.

The Priapus Shot (P-Shot) uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own body to rejuvenate damaged tissue. The P-Shot procedure is designed for those who have restricted blood flow due to surgery side effects, diabetes, an enlarged prostate, and prostate cancer. Because the platelet-rich plasma comes from your own body, it is more natural than other ED treatments.
