So You’re Not Eating Enough Fiber…
There is one thing I’ve learned when it comes to keeping your erections strong whenever you and your lover get frisky in the bedroom. And it’s loading up on sufficient fiber to always get rock hard when you need to.
I know this sounds rather odd right now, but you’re sure to find out more when you follow along…
See, fiber plays a key role when it comes to getting an erection and keeping it long enough to make lovemaking possible. However, before we get to the importance of fiber in your sex life, let me give you a quick rundown on what happens inside your body when you get sexually aroused.
The moment things get hot in bed, your brain stimulates a few glands to start producing and releasing hormones that induce a few significant changes in the body. These changes include making erogenous zones like the penis, nipples, scrotum and the areas around them more sensitive as well as increasing the heart rate.
And perhaps the most prominent change triggered by these hormones is the spike in blood pressure, which directs more blood than usual to the erectile tissues in the penis to firm it up and get it ready for lovemaking.
Unless these erectile tissues get the right amount of blood they need, chances are you will only get a weak erection or even none at all, which can be a very big problem if your lover is looking for an extra steamy time between the sheets.
And here’s where fiber gets in the picture…
Now while constipation is usually the first thing that comes to mind when fiber deficiency is concerned, not having the right amount of it in your system also leads to one big problem that can prevent you from getting rock hard no matter how hard you try.
Having a diet that severely lacks in fiber promotes the formation of plaque particles along the linings of the veins and arteries.
Besides setting off atherosclerosis, stroke and serious cardiovascular issues, this also prevents blood from reaching the erectile tissues during sexual arousal, which can make getting a stable erection extremely difficult no matter how hard you try.
Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think though, oatmeal and beans aren’t just the only sources of fiber.
You can also get your ample share of fiber by munching on broccoli, corn, chicken, banana, avocado, quinoa, almonds, turkey, raspberries, lentils, artichokes, pears and oranges among others. Just imagine the tasty dishes you can already whip up using these ingredients.
Keep in mind to always get your share of fiber each and every day to avoid not “rising up to the occasion” the next time things get hot in bed.
