There are several studies that show that patients suffering from erectile dysfunction have other associated diseases such as heart problems, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. In fact, erectile dysfunction usually appears prior to cardiovascular problems, which is why it is called a sentinel symptom. This is an alteration, sometimes the only one that the patient presents, which indicates that there may be problems in the heart, so it is necessary to go to the specialist to assess the situation. Fortunately, it has been shown that leading a healthy lifestyle helps reduce the possibility of suffering from erectile dysfunction and / or testosterone deficiency.
It has been seen that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest in unsaturated fats and other beneficial nutrients. These aspects help to maintain good control of cholesterol, blood glucose (or blood sugar), blood pressure and triglycerides among others. The bases of this diet are variety and balance so it becomes advisable for everyone, regardless of age and sex.
In order to comply with it in our day to day we must take certain aspects into account:
Consuming three pieces of fruit a day and vegetables in both food and dinner would be the first thing to consider. So if we eat daily from the menu, it would be advisable to choose the first course salad and the dessert fruit.
Prioritize the consumption of fish over meat and preferably in cooking that does not provide excessive fat: a baked fish with potatoes would be a perfect choice as a second course. Accompanying this menu with water and a glass of red wine (only drink with alcohol that is heart-healthy) we have a healthy, Mediterranean and tasty menu.
Always choose olive oil as the main source of fat. This is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids that are beneficial for our cardiovascular health and it is as advisable to consume it raw as to use it for cooking.
To be able to comply with the daily recommendations of vegetables, fruit, dairy products, starches and protein foods and to avoid stinging undesirable foods between meals, it is important to make five meals a day.
The concept is to eat little and often, not allowing more than four hours to pass for being rich in fiber, between one meal and another. The best options between hours would be the fruit, the skimmed milk products or a mini sandwich of Iberian ham, for example.
Practicing physical exercise on a regular basis is beneficial for several reasons. The first and perhaps the best known is the fact that it keeps us active, making our muscles and bones strong. It also helps to oxygenate our body both physically and psychically. In addition endorphins are secreted so we feel more happy and less stressed, we release stresses and also improves our cardiovascular system, making the heart and blood vessels are strengthened. There are different ways to stay active and we will choose the exercise and the intensity of it according to our tastes and abilities. What we must not forget is that walking is within everyone’s reach. The most appropriate thing would be to walk daily and perform a sport a minimum of two or three times a week.
Taking all of these aspects into account will not only improve our cardiovascular health, our physical appearance and our attitude, but it will make it possible to control or avoid comorbidities – such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and overweight – that can influence sexual health
