Are statin drugs good for your love life?
Do you have high cholesterol?
If you have high cholesterol it means that your arteries are clogged with plaque, and your flood flow is seriously impeded. It may also mean that you may be having erectile problems, and this could be because the blood is not flowing properly to the penis where it is needed for good erections.
Studies have shown that many men with erectile dysfunction (ED) are often unaware that they may have cardiovascular disease. When seeking advice about an ED condition, the doctor may discover that there is a penile vascular blood flow problem, due to undiagnosed cardiovascular issues.
The main point is that, if there are arteries in the heart which are clogged, the penile artery can be also be clogged, contributing to the ED condition.
You may be prescribed anti-cholesterol statin drugs to help unclog your arteries, which includes the penile artery, and may indeed help to ease the conditions of ED.
Statins and your love life
Statin drugs are mainly used to reduce bad cholesterol levels which raise the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. Studies have indicated that men who are on meds specifically prescribed for ED, as well as on statins for cholesterol, have seen an increase of up to one third in the improvement of their ED problems. The studies concluded that statins can cause a clinically relevant improvement in erectile dysfunction, mainly because of the decreased levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Although erectile dysfunction can have many causes, research has shown that a major reason is a lack of blood flow to the genital areas. To achieve a strong erection, and maintain it, good blood flow to the penile artery is essential.
Here are some natural ways you can help to unclog your arteries and keep the blood flow going to where it needs to go:
- There are medications like statins which can help reduce plaque build-up in the arteries, but a better and more natural way is to improve your diet, exercise, and try to keep your weight down.
- Reducing the intake of high cholesterol foods such as fatty red meat, eggs, fried foods, chicken which is not skinless, and full-fat dairy, will definitely lead to improved artery health.
- Cutting out refined foods like rolls, cakes and bread products will also be a positive lifestyle change. Fill up instead with fruit and veggies which boosts nitric oxide production, promoting an easier, more efficient blood flow throughout the body.
- Exercise on a regular basis and get your sex life back to where it should be.
Note that as useful as research has shown statin drugs to be, doctors do not usually prescribe statins for erectile dysfunction unless there are cardiovascular risks present.
Erectile dysfunction is no disgrace – and it is not an assault on your manhood. Mostly it is a condition which can be cured, or at the very least improved. But for a proper diagnosis, a medical practitioner should always be consulted to rule out any underlying medical issues. Ignoring the problem may lead to psychological hassles like depression and anxiety.
