Why Drinking Wine Can Actually Help You Become More Virile
If you’re feeling that your virility isn’t quite what it used to be, the best thing you can do is have a glass of wine. No, really. It’s actually a remedy backed by science, proven to bring your virility levels up to par again.
During my research I stumbled on a neurology book that described in detail how the antioxidants in wine helped speed up the replenishment of testosterone in the body.
Just to give you a quick rundown, testosterone is in essence the male sex hormone. It is pretty much in charge of all things sexual in the body of a man. Besides controlling how much sperm is produced, testosterone also plays a significant role when it comes to sex drive.
I have been so intrigued by this find that I kept on searching for related studies that will support this claim. And sure enough I came across a similar study while I was checking out an entry in a journal published by the American Heart Association.
The authors, who were from the Queen Mary University in London, emphasized that the idea of wine being used as an aphrodisiac isn’t something new. There are historical records that show it was used more than just as a drink to wash down food over 2,000 years ago.
Examples of these records include numerous murals from Ancient Rome that depicted men and women having orgies with huge jars of wine beside them. There are also crude scrolls from Ancient Sumeria that instructed new husbands to always have a jar of wine ready to easily get in the mood for sex.
To find out if wine really did have the stuff that helped boost sex drive in men, the researchers laboriously recorded the components that can be found in a single glass. And what they discovered was amazing.
They determined that along with high levels of the plant-based antioxidant, resveratrol, the tannins in wine also contain copious amounts of procyanidins. These are natural chemicals that not only give wine its sweet sour taste, but also keep the arterial walls of the heart in excellent shape for many years.
Now let’s get to the best part. Getting loads of procyanidins means that you’ll have an improved blood flow. The more intense the flow of blood in your body is, the easier it is for you to achieve an erection when things get hot in the bedroom.
And just to make things even more interesting, procyanidins also help boost the production and replenishment of testosterone in the pituitary gland, which means you’ll rarely feel sapped of your virility ever again.
The researchers also noted that the production of procyanidins isn’t set off by modern wine-making techniques, but by the act of breaking the skins of the grapes. This means that the ancient wine producers unknowingly got access to them when they prepped up the sweet fruits.
Just a reminder from the science guys though. Keep in mind to limit your wine consumption to one or two four-ounce glasses daily to experience the best results.
