FOR MEN (And those who care about them)
A satisfying sex life requires a healthy body, which depends on sound nutrition, exercise, and sufficient rest. For the most part, sexual function is controlled by the endocrine glands, which secrete specific hormones. In order to function properly and produce sufficient hormones, these glands have certain nutritional needs.
The pituitary gland has both direct and indirect effects on sexual and reproductive functions. Its hormones need the B-complex vitamins, pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin E and zinc. Any deficiency of the pituitary causes underdeveloped sex organs, and impotence in men.
The adrenal glands, produce a small but significant amount of sex hormones. These glands need vitamin A, the B vitamins, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-1, niacin, vitamin C and E, and the unsaturated fatty acids. Adrenal exhaustion can result in little strength or desire for sex. An inadequately supplied thyroid can also cause a lack of desire or strength for sex. Iodine, the V vitamins, vitamin B-1, and vitamin E are essential for the production of its hormone, thyroxine.
The male sex gland, the testes, are composed of 2 glands; one secretes testosterone and the other produces sperm. (Testosterone increased sexual desire in both sexes.) Vitamins A, C, E, and folic acid work with testosterone to produce sperm and other male characteristics such as a deep voice and facial hair. The nutrient content of sperm includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, and vitamin B-12, C, and inositol. A deficiency of vitamin E causes a degeneration of the testicles; too-low levels of zinc result in immovable, useless and infertile sperm. In male laboratory animals, a manganese deficiency causes loss of sex drive, lack of semen, and degeneration of the seminal tubules. Testosterone levels proportionately decrease with the amount of marijuana smoked.
The sex hormones are made from cholesterol. Cholesterol-containing foods need not be limited as long as the body has sufficient amounts of the other nutrients needed to properly metabolize the cholesterol. These include wthe vitamins B-complex, C, and E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and lecithin. Refined and processed foods are greatly lacking in these nutrients; in their absence cholesterol is unable to enter wthe cells and remains in the blood, eventually helping to form plaques.
Impotence, the male’s inability to achieve erection of the penis has been related to a magnesium or a combined zinc and vitamin B-6 deficiency. Other factors associated with impotence are emotional problems, physical illness such as diabetes, and the intake of drugs and alcohol. Although levels of testosterone decrease with age, this doesn’t cause erectile impotence because the penis requires only minimal amounts of the hormone for successful operation.
Sterility can occur in the male and is often the result of a zinc deficiency. Studies have shown that the higher the blood histamine level is in men, the quicker the ejaculation. Men too low in histamine can’t achieve ejaculate prematurely.
Sexual desire and performance can be adversely affected by numerous things including drugs, alcohol, cigarette smoking, caffeine, some common medicines such as certain tranquilizers, anti-hypertensives, and anticholinergics.
Perhaps you can see more clearly now that no general diet. can ever hope to give you what you need and no expert can generalize about nutrition and give you the specifics you must have to effect a major change in health, and I’ve only discussed one issue today. It’s important to understand that your individual differences required the correct and specific nutritional program that will take into consideration:
* your age
* genetic individuality
* any existing health problems, and
* the nutritional needs unique to YOU, as a man
Nutrient deficiencies are an epidemic in our society and it’s vital to find out where you stand so that you can become nutrient sufficient. To this end, in a few weeks you will have the opportunity of checking out my “heart project” it’s called; Dr. Henry’s HealthTest© . It’s helped thousands of people over the years, recently, completely updated, including its copywrite and for the first time I’m offering it to the general public so that we can all –
STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!(TM) Each test is individually designed based on the answers you give. Not only that, but if you’re low or very-low in any nutrient you will receive a complete explanation and a list of foods in that particular category. If that’s not enough – I will design the right food program for you, again, based on your answers and you won’t have to count calories, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, etc. I’ve done all the work for you .and so much more.
Who but an ex-311 pounder could have thought of all this?
